Lyu Ming | China News Service via Getty ImagesSINGAPORE — China's latest antitrust push will not likely lead to a "sudden explosion of cases" against online platforms, according to legal expert Angela Zhang. Her comments came after shares of Chinese tech giants like Alibaba, Tencent and Meituan were rattled earlier in November following the release of draft rules by Beijing that defined for the first time what constitutes anti-competitive behavior. We shouldn't expect ... a sudden explosion of cases against these online platforms. Angela Zhang associate professor of law, Center for Chinese Law at The University of Hong KongFirstly, such investigations typically involve a "lengthy process" and Chinese agencies could take a long time to complete an investigation, Zhang said.

The ruling effectively bars U.S. Agency for Global Media CEO Michael Pack from making personnel decisions and interfering in editorial operations. Pack, a conservative filmmaker, Trump ally and onetime associate of former Trump political adviser Steve Bannon, made no secret of his intent to shake up the agency after taking over in June. In July, Pack had ordered an investigation into the posting of a video package featuring now President-elect Joe Biden on a VOA website. Fourteen senior VOA journalists sent a letter to management in August protesting Pack’s actions, including the dismissal of foreign journalists and his comments denigrating VOA staff, which they said were endangering their colleagues and the international broadcaster’s credibility. The global media agency did not immediately respond to a written request for comment on the ruling.

In 2013, the Freedom Project went to Cambodia with Oscar-winning actress and UNODC Goodwill Ambassador against Human Trafficking, Mira Sorvino . The result was "Every Day in Cambodia: A CNN Freedom Project Documentary," which looked at child sex trafficking in the country. In Svay Pak, a notorious child sex trafficking hub in Phnom Penh, Sorvino met Kieu, who was then around 14 years old. She had been rescued from sex trafficking by Agape International Missions (AIM), a non-profit for trafficked and at risk children and teenagers. "If people weren't trying to buy child sex it wouldn't be being sold."
