Update: Deng Yonggu Convicted of "Defamation," Exempted from Punishment

The case of Deng Yonggu, which I've posted about here, here, and here has finally concluded, with the Pengxi County People's Court in Sichuan finding Deng guilty of the crime of defamation but exempting him from punishment. Meanwhile, another major defamation case is brewing in Fujian, with six people detained so far for Internet posts critical of a police cover-up of a brutal gang-rape. I hope to have time to post something on this soon.
