TAIPEI (Taiwan News)—Hsinchu District Court judges ruled recently that one of the
nation’s largest retailers, RT-Mart (大潤發), and big Taiwanese TV manufacturer HERAN (禾聯) need to compensate a house owner surnamed Wei (魏) NT$529,525 (US$17,452) for damages incurred from an exploding TV made by HERAN, reported Apple Daily.
The house owner surnamed Wei demanded a total compensation of NT$1.08 million from the TV manufacturer HERAN, retailer RT-Mart and her tenant Huang.
RT-Mart objected the judge’s ruling, stating they should not be held responsible for the fire caused by HERAN’s hazardous TV. [FULL STORY]
