Gordon Liu Takes Former Assistant To Court Over Financial Dispute
Gordon Liu (劉家輝) may have a chance to reclaim his assets worth over 2 million RMB, which his former assistant Eva Fung (馮映華) refused to return to him. The 57-year-old martial arts star, who is left paralyzed on the left side of his body after suffering a stroke in 2011, has finally taken legal action against Eva.
Eva is reported to have finally accepted her subpoena to court after Gordon’s guardian Amy Fan (樊亦敏) and legal authorities confronted Eva at the lobby of a commercial building.
For over a year, Eva acted as Gordon’s spokesperson and financial adviser. Gordon had entrusted his remuneration fees under her care. After falling out with Eva, Gordon and his sister appointed Hong Kong actress Amy Fan to replace Eva as Gordon’s guardian. Eva, however, refused to return Gordon’s funds and declined to give up her current hold on Gordon’s two bank accounts. Gordon, Amy, and their legal team officially filed a legal petition against Eva last month.
A court hearing was scheduled to take place on May 25, but Eva refused to accept her subpoena. On June 5, several media outlets reported that Amy, along with four other companions, among them an attorney, confronted Eva at the lobby of a commercial building and tossed the subpoena document to her.
A witness said that Eva refused to accept her document upon seeing the group and rushed to the elevator. Amy followed her, and after a brief quarrel, both Eva and Amy returned to the lobby. It was reported that Eva kept her back towards Amy at all times and was dialing her phone.
Reportedly, one of the members of Amy’s team asked if she needed to call the police, in which Amy reportedly shouted, “Good! Let’s call the police! When the police come, I will personally hand the subpoena to Eva Fung again. She will not dare to not receive it!”
Upon hearing this, Eva reluctantly accepted the document. Amy then said, “You’ve received it! Now you know you must go to court!”
Later that day, Eva filed a report to police authorities, claiming that she has been cornered and harassed by a group of people who forced her to receive a letter. Eva also expressed that she has been receiving numerous anonymous calls.
