This is the whole story when I was slapped in the face during #CPC18
Fiona Bruce MP, chair of @CPHumanRights and @benedictrogers, chair of @hk_watch, cohosted a fringe event on Hong Kong’s erosion of freedom. Martin Lee QC, @yttai and @nathanlawkc were the speakers #CPC18 1/8
The event focused on China’s continued suppression of Hong Kong human rights and China’s breach of the Joint-Deceleration. @nathanlawkc told the audience how he was jailed and ousted from HK parliament, @yttai talked about sharp and hard power of China in HK. #CPC18 2/8
At the end of the event, a woman with a press pass, later learnt she works for Chinese state-controlled #CCTV, shouted at @benedictrogers from her seat, accusing him of trying to separate China, and the rest of the panel were puppets and fake Chinese. #CPC18 3/8
Fiona Bruce MP asked her to calm down, that woman obv can’t, then Fiona asked her to leave. I approached her, and tried to tell her she had made her point and she was no longer welcome #CPC18 4/8
The reporter continued her shouting and whilst I was trying to escort her out, she accused me of trying to silence her. Then I said no miss you have to go. All of a sudden, she slapped me in my face #cpc18 5/8
The audience was shocked and some brave men and women came and tried to escort her out. During the struggle, she continued her shouting and refused to leave, then out of the blue again, slapped me again #CPC18 6/8
Eventually she was being removed by police. Sources said while the police tried to control her, she attempted to slap the police. Defo not tame #CPC18 7/8
She was arrested and the assault case is now handling by @WMPolice
Her action is a direct assault on free speech right at our party conference. Her action cannot be tolerated. We will not be silent by force #CPC18 8/8
