    The Chinese Envoy was there...

    The response was a heavy letter from Mai Chen on the trust board’s behalf declaring that the claims were “false and defamatory” and demanding that the site remove the statement immediately.

    ...the fact that they (TKRNT trust board) protest so much, without clarifying anything, speaks volumes to me.
