“A Chinese TV reporter charged with slapping a delegate at the Tory party conference has had the case against her dropped,” reports the BBC. In September, CCTV worker Kǒng Línlín 孔琳琳 attended a fringe event at the annual conference of Britain’s Conservative Party about declining freedoms in Hong Kong. Kong began screaming at the speakers and then slapped a party volunteer who was trying to get her to leave.
