For having three kids

Friday, January 10, 2014

Zhang fined US$1.2M

Famed film director Zhang Yimou must pay more than US$1.2 million in fines for having three children in violation of China’s strict family planning rules, officials said yesterday.

A district government in the eastern city of Wuxi said in an online statement that investigators concluded that the director of House of Flying Daggers and his wife, Chen Ting, flouted family planning policies by having the children without approval and before they got married in 2011.

The case raised questions among members of the public about whether Zhang’s social status had allowed him to dodge the family planning rules for years. The district government said it adopted more severe standards in levying the fines against Zhang and Chen because their violations were particularly flagrant.

Zhang and Chen have 30 days to pay the fines. They may also seek an administrative review or file a court petition if they object to the fines.
