English: Machahir123- Police interrogated Chinese artist Ai Weiwei more than 50 times during his detention and threatened him with up to 10 years in jail for inciting subversion.Chinese artist Ai Weiwei believed he was "close to death" during the more than 80 days he was held in a secret police detention centr.
Beijing has banned him from speaking to the press since his release.
However, the source said Mr Ai was hooded, kept under constant watch with guards inside his cell and subjected to treatment designed to break him.
Mr Ai was detained on charges of tax fraud by the Chinese authorities.
For 81 days Ai Weiwei was held in a windowless cell less than 4 sq m (13 sq ft) and never allowed out.
The source, who is trusted by the artist, has told the BBC that Mr Ai described his secret detention as "the toughest situation a human being can be in", every minute he felt "close to death".
China's most famous artist and one of the most vocal critics of its ruling Communist Party was picked up by police in April as the authorities rounded-up activists, following online calls for a Middle Eastern-style Jasmine revolution in China.
He was hooded, interrogated repeatedly and watched over at all times by two soldiers who stood to attention inside his cell.
He had to ask their permission to use his toilet, even to drink a glass of water.
