I'd think that if the pope was a chinese citizen or something, that they wouldn't let him out, anymore than they'd let the dali lama out. He'd have to go into 'exile' (if you can call it that) in Rome.
Recall the papal Babylonian Captivity, when the papacy was enthroned at Avignon? Perhaps this could lead to a 'Hong Kong' Captivity.
Then again its predicated on the conclave voting for him, and they can't vote on him if they don't know who he is, no? Do they all get told who he is?

The Vatican said yesterday that Chineses authorities have carried out a new series of arrests of officials from China's illegal Roman Catholic Church.
The most recent arrest occurred Wednesday, when a priest was picked up in Hebei, the same diocese whose bishop was arrested Jan. 3.
