Taiwanese food blogger busted

Taiwan Bloggers beware – a Taiwanese blogger has been jailed for posting a negative restaurant review on her website.

The woman, known under the moniker Mrs Lui, was sued for defamation after complaining (on her lifestyle blog) that the beef noodles at Taichung city’s Sichuan Flavour Beef Noodle Restaurant were “too salty” and that the owner was a “bully”.

The Taichung high court upheld her complaint that there were cockroaches there, but deemed her “unqualified to pass judgment” on the menu since she’d eaten only one noodle dish and two side dishes. She was sentenced to 30 days in jail with two years’ probation, and ordered to pay £4,300 compensation. She was also told to apologise to the owner, Mr Yang – who said he hoped she had been taught a lesson.
