Paul Chan, wife guilty of libel, fined HK$230k
(1 hr 4 mins ago)

Development Secretary Paul Chan Mo-po and his wife have been found guilty of libel for falsely accusing two school kids of cheating in tests. They are fined HK$230,000.
Chan and his wife Frieda Hui Po-ming are accused of sending e-mails claiming that the Chinese International School's former head boy, Jonathan Lu, and his twin sister, Caitlin, had cheated in economics tests, and that their father Carl covered up the incidents at the school board level back in 2011.
The twins had testified that they were both hurt and distressed over the e-mails. And Jonathan's application to Harvard University in the United States was said to be compromised by an anonymous letter to the school passing on the rumors.
