China: Man released after 27 yrs wrongfully imprisoned; Bribery record: $200 million + more….

  • Shanghai’s famous TV Tower, which was accidentally given the same name as the city of Hong Kong, was struck with powerful lightning. That’s after Hong Kong police arrested even more pro-democracy activists. Hong Kong media mogul Jimmy Lai and others have been released on bail. The share price of Lai’s Apple Daily skyrocketed shortly after, standing as a show of support.
  • A Chinese official was discovered to have falsified his resume, with somewhat comical results. Based on the fake document, he joined the Chinese Army before he was even one year old.
  • A Chinese state-run TV station is facing consequences, following its broadcast of a British citizen’s forced confession. He made the coerced statement after being drugged, handcuffed and locked in a cage inside a Chinese prison.
  • WeChat users in the U.S. appear divided over Trump’s ban of the Chinese social media app. Both supporters and opposers set up petitions on the White House petition website.
