TAIPEI — The Taiwan High Court Tuesday upheld a District Court ruling that media personality Clara Chou (周玉蔻) must pay NT$2 million (US$64,800) in compensation for defaming tycoon Terry Gou (郭台銘).

Gou, chairman of Hon Hai Precision Industry, filed a suit against Chou in 2015 for alleging that he made a NT$300 million political donation to the Kuomintang (KMT) Taipei mayoral candidate Sean Lien’s (連勝文) election campaign.

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

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]
