Veteran martial arts actor Gordon Liu (劉家輝) was finally able to reclaim his financial assets through peaceful means. On April 29, a harmonious agreement was settled in court between Gordon and his former assistant, Eva Fung (馮映華).
Shortly after becoming paralyzed on the right side of his body from a stroke in 2011, Gordon’s assistant Eva refused to return his financial assets that she was told to temporarily keep. Having decided to bring the dispute to court, Gordon’s trial with Eva was scheduled this year on April 29. But one day before, Eva contacted Gordon’s lawyer and suddenly stated she is willing to unconditionally return the money along with interest rates, while giving up on a counterclaim. The returned sum of money is approximately 1.2 million RMB.
That day, Eva arrived in court with Gordon’s son, while Gordon’s guardian Amy Fan (樊亦敏) served as his representative. Both sides agreed to the deal and a reconciliation statement was read in court. The judge also exclaimed he is pleased with the result and congratulated the two sides involved.
After the case closed, Amy expressed in an interview, “Mr. Liu would like to thank Eva for her care from August 17, 2011 to December 27, 2012. From today on, he will start to restore his health actively, since there had been a lack of money before. He will soon greet everyone looking more handsome.” Amy added that Gordon is doing well and has gained weight to approximately 120 pounds.
On the other hand, Eva refused to share her reasons for suddenly backing out on the trial and claimed it is a matter of privacy. She remained in the meeting room for twenty minutes before leaving the court building and was reluctant in having the reporters take photos.
