TBWA, Paris lost their Amnesty Lion (it's official now)

Creativity online reports:

In the end, it was a technicality, not international outcry, that relieved TBWA, Paris of its Bronze Lion.Despite angering the Chinese government with depictions of Olympics-related torture for Amnesty International, Cannes International Advertising Festival organizers and the network, upon reviewing the entry, realized its token media buy occurred after the April 30 deadline.
