The Taiwan High Court on Tuesday upheld a lower court ruling that radio host Clara Chou (周玉蔻) must pay NT$2 million (US$64,475) in compensation for defaming Hon Hai Precision Industry Co chairman Terry Gou (郭台銘).

Gou filed a lawsuit against Chou in 2015 after she accused him of making a NT$300 million donation to then-Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Taipei mayoral candidate Sean Lien’s (連勝文) campaign.

In August 2015, Chou, a HitFM radio host and frequent TV talk show guest, was ordered by the Taipei District Court to publish a half-page apology on the front page of seven newspapers, as well as on the Web site.

Chou appealed the ruling, but the High Court upheld it, ordering her to pay the money, but limiting her apology to just four major dailies.    [FULL  STORY]
