TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — The founder and former CEO of Taiwan's Foxconn Technology, Terry Gou (郭台銘), filed a lawsuit against a Facebook user surnamed Li (李) Tuesday morning (Nov. 5) after Li allegedly spread fake news about the death of Gou's mother on the Internet.

Gou previously on Oct. 31 sued about 200 Taiwanese netizens for using abusive language involving his mother, Chu Yung-chen (初永真). He told the press that he had been targeted by nonstop insults since he joined the Kuomintang (KMT) presidential primary earlier this year and that he could bear defamation aimed at him but not at his mother.    [FULL  STORY]
