    Red face Can you help me correct this sentence?

    More conflicting reports are surfacing on a condition under which a Chinese dissident left the US embassy in Beijing today was a freewheeler under government threat.

    The answers will be appreciated. Michael.

    Here is the audio file of the sentence.

    To be honest, the meaning of the sentence is unclear- it's not a sentence that can be tidied up grammatically because the problem is the content IMO.

    The ending is:

    was it free will or under government threat

    (And it is the condition)
