CHINA FILMMAKER PAYS $1.2-MILLION FINE OVER CHILDREN

0

BEIJING: China’s best-known film director Zhang Yimou has paid 7.5 million yuan ($1.2 million) for violating the one-child policy, officials said on Friday, closing a case that had attracted widespread attention. Following months of rumors that he had fathered up to seven children with different women, Zhang admitted in December he has two sons and a daughter with his current wife, Chen Ting, all from before they were married. He also has a daughter with a previous wife. The family-planning law, implemented in the late 1970s in a bid to prevent overpopulation, restricts most parents to one child.
