Chinese lawyers suing CNN for hostile remarks
Adjust font size:

Shanghai Zhenhua Port Machinery Co. also reprimanded Jack Cafferty to look at its port machines installed at ports in the United States. The company said it would sue him for libel if he repeats his anti-China remarks stating that Chinese products were "junk".

Jimmy Siu See-kong, a solicitor and also the Chairman of the "Party for the Civic Rights and Livelihood Of the People of Hong Kong", filed suit in the District Court against CNN and Cafferty, according to The Standard on April 18.

He said both CNN and Cafferty had employed vicarious liability because the words used by the latter had damaged the reputation of all the Chinese people, including himself. The conduct of Cafferty on behalf of CNN amounts to heinous conduct in that it provokes racial discrimination, and Siu wants an apology, damages and an injunction prohibiting CNN from ever employing Cafferty again.

Dahe Daily, a leading local paper of China's Henan Province, also reported that two residents in the city of Luoyang had filed lawsuits against CNN and the notorious commenter in the local court, demanding an apology and compensation of 10,000 yuan (US$1430.64). The court has already accepted the civil case.
