8:07 am
wanted to unite, as he call it. i was with the mainland china. he wanted to most like the contact. i wanted to know whatsoever he was at the time when you people might internally join the people's republic. whether this will happen will depend on a lot of things. but the threat has been more and voice more in the in the past few years. mathias, how are people, you know, in hong kong and in taiwan for example, likely to view this day or, or we also have to say, you know, chinese who have fled abroad the, well, it won't go home this day is also a special day. it marks the 24th anniversary seems to hand over from britain to china. that was usually the occasion where the people would march for their liberties working again, the group of the communist party, you know, in this year,

8:09 am
journalists following the story for us from los angeles. so, i mean, get it. what does this mean now the trial wasn't fair. yeah. you know it's, there's so much legal lee surrounding this, but base it will let me try to kind of dismantle it. basically a couple of years ago before he was actually charged. the older prosecutor, the previous prosecutor that is in the state of pennsylvania, asked him to come forward to give a deposition in exchange for that he would not be prosecuted as long as he told the truth. well, bill cosby came in, he spoke contemporaries only very, very long gave extreme graphic details about the fact that he drugs certain women that he had according to him affairs with certain women in exchange for that truth, he would not be prosecuted according to that prosecutor. well, after all that happened, he was charge, he was prosecuted and he was found guilty. so what this state supreme court is
8:10 am
saying now is that bill cosby should have never been prosecuted in the 1st place because they had an agreement on the table that he would not be prosecuted in exchange for his testimony. so because of that, they're saying that this conviction has to be overturn. what people have to understand is that this decision that came out on wednesday does not say that bill cosby is innocent. it is not say that there wasn't enough evidence by these dozens and dozens of women that came forward and claim that bill coffee, sexually assaulted them. that is something very different. so we have to be very, very careful about how we can find this with the law. speaking of the law, k j. i mean, is this the ends now of this particular case for cosby and how about other legal measures? well remember bill cosby is 83 years old and that this case really surrounds just one woman. andrea constant. yes, we all know there's more than 60 women that have come forward and told her story,
8:11 am
but because of the statute, limitations, and other lack of evidence in some of those those cases, he was not tried on any of those cases. so for this particular case, it really is the end of it. he cannot be tried, his conviction has been overturned, so it looks like this is really the end for bill cosby criminally speaking. however, there could be many, many more civil suits coming forward. in fact, there is an attorney, glory, all rich here in los angeles, who's representing a number of the women that have come forward there were alleging a sexual assault by bill cosby. so he still has to fly to los angeles and give a deposition in that civil case. ok, so it's not entirely over k j. matthew's entertainment journalist with the view from los angeles. thanks so much. thank you. his look at some other stories making news for us defense secretary donald rumsfeld has died at the age of 88. you served twice in the post under president gerald ford. and george
