In the summer of 2015, two women were standing on a beach in China’s Guangdong province when they noticed something unusual.
A man was leaning against a rock and talking to a female friend.
The woman, who was not wearing a bikini, said that she had heard the same sounds the man had made.
When she looked closer, she noticed the same two men in the same spot at the same time.
The two were standing in a group, talking in a voice that could only be heard from the other side of the rock.
What made the discovery even more incredible was that the two women had seen each other before, and had even seen each others boyfriend before.
What followed was an investigation that brought together two of the world’s most famous and successful people.
The pair were named “beach 161” for their discovery.
It was an extraordinary feat.
They had been standing on the same beach, in a single moment, for two hours.
The man had also told the women that he was a fisherman and the women had heard him saying something about fishing in a previous conversation.
In the days that followed, the two were both arrested.
The news of the arrest was met with mixed reactions.
“What’s happening here is that these two are criminals,” one of the men’s lawyer, Li Ming, told CNN.
“We’re just trying to get to the bottom of this case.”
“Beach 161,” which translates to “beaches where we go for pleasure,” was one of several new names for the island in Guangdongs province.
The island was popular with women, and the beach was a place of relaxation for them.
A local government official was reportedly so surprised by the news that he wrote a letter to the head of the local government, urging them to allow the two to return to their hometown.
The next morning, the women were arrested and charged with violating Chinese law, which bans prostitution.
In February 2016, the court upheld the case and ordered the two men to be held in custody.
They were eventually released, but the woman had to undergo psychiatric treatment and take medication for anxiety and depression.
She was sentenced to four years in prison and fined 50,000 yuan ($6,700).
What happened next is still not clear, but it was a case that many of the island’s leaders were very familiar with.
In March, the city of Chengdu banned all forms of prostitution.
The Chinese government has been struggling with the fallout from a wave of sexual harassment and abuse in recent years, and it’s no surprise that the island has had to respond.
A new law was signed in May that makes it illegal to offer sex for money.
In May, police in Chongqing province also began to enforce stricter anti-prostitution laws.
However, the island of Guandong still has many other issues to deal with.
According to the local media, the man arrested on Beach 161 was the only one of two men who had been charged.
However the two other men are currently being investigated and have not been charged in the case.
According for the government, the woman was not the mastermind behind the crime and did not commit it.
The case was dismissed and the two had no involvement in the crime.
But it was too late for the two.
They have been sentenced to jail terms of up to one year each, with two months suspended.
The story has also sparked controversy in China.
While some criticized the decision to not charge the men, others argued that the punishment is disproportionate to the crime, and is unfair to the women.
“If they had been convicted, they would have received a lot more,” Guandoung’s deputy district attorney, Liu Ming, said.
“This was a simple case where the two suspects were the only ones who were arrested, so the punishment was not excessive.
The new name for the beach, “Beaches where you go for fun,” was a popular catchphrase. “
The two are being treated as criminals, but they did nothing wrong.”
The new name for the beach, “Beaches where you go for fun,” was a popular catchphrase.
People on the island are very supportive of their women.
But they also are not happy about what happened.
“It’s just not fair,” one man told CNN, “because it is such a shame that women are being punished.”
The two women’s lawyer told CNN that their actions were just a part of a larger trend.
“People see the beach as a place to have fun and it is a popular place,” Li Ming said.
“[But] people think women should be ashamed.”
“We’ve been doing this for 20 years and we haven’t done anything wrong.”
