Tavia Yeung and Him Law already had their press conference to explain the 'car sex' incident. Yesterday their companies, TVB and Filmko, clearly stated they will be taking legal action against the related parties to safeguard their artists and get justice back for them. Yesterday, TVB Deputy Director of Foreign Affairs (Tsang Sing Ming) expressed the incident had tremendous impact both Tavia and Him's image and reputation. Their managements are following closely with the case, TVB has already sent a demand letter to Apple Daily and Sharp Daily demanding an apology to TVB and the artists. As for Tavia, she had decided to personally hire a lawyer and take legal action against Apple Daily.
It was said TVB sent someone out to the newspaper offices to look at the pictures, but Mr. Tsang expressed there is no such thing. However, he does admit someone did indeed call TVB executive Virgina Lok, this time the decision to send out the demand letter was made by TVB in order to safeguard the artist (Tavia) and to get the truth out of the report. When asked if TVB plans to shut out Apple Daily and Sharp Daily reporters from taking part in any of TVB events? Mr. Tsang expressed they will have to see how Apple Daily/Sharp Daily respond first before taking any further action.
Also, asked if TVB demanded Apple Daily to hand over the raw photos? Mr. Tsang said: "We don't have demands, just asking for an apology. (Is there a deadline to when they have to apologize?) Sometimes, but it's not convenient for me to talk about it. We want a response soon. (What type of apology did TVB request?) Let's see how they react first. The contents of the lawyer letter, I cannot say."
The other night, Tavia posted on Weibo. She said today's injuries strengthens her life. For all the bad things that happened is the past, she will continue to work hard on her jobs and tomorrow is a new day. The other victim, Him Law, expressed: "My company, Filmko, has already passed the case on to the lawyer. This incident hurt Tavia more than me. Reputation is very important to a woman, so I hope the media can publicly apologize to her (Tavia) and give us our justice." Filmko expressed they hope the media will make a public apology to Tavia and Him, otherwise further legal action will be taken.
