Guan Biling also said, "The record of fraud is also very rich. He (referring to Sun Tianqun) and Xiang Xin have also been involved in fraud cases, and he himself has been involved in two fraud incidents." "Why does Sun Tianqun seem to be a fraudster?" I am also a fraudster myself" and so on.

Sun Tianqun was dissatisfied with Guan Biling's infringement of personal reputation, and filed criminal and civil lawsuits respectively.

In the criminal part, Guan Biling was confirmed by the prosecution not to prosecute, and Sun Tianqun then petitioned to be handed over for trial. The Criminal Court of the North Court rejected the petition for confirmation on September 22 last year.

Sun Tianqun also claimed 1.6 million yuan in compensation from Guan Biling in the civil court and asked for a clarification statement to be published.

Guan Biling explained that she had fulfilled her obligation of reasonable verification, denied that the remarks were fabricated, and that she was making reasonable comments on matters that could be publicly commented, and she had provided relevant media reports or PTT gossip articles as evidence; she also emphasized that the reporter The main purpose of the meeting is to refute Cai Zhengyuan's false accusations. Even if it is contrary to the facts or exaggerated and sensational, it is still protected by freedom of speech and denies liability for compensation.

The Civil Court of the North Court pointed out that Guan Biling is currently holding a billboard and the content of his remarks will make the public think that Sun Tianqun is a habitual fraudster. Fraud and money-absorbing cannot be used as evidence.

The civil court of the North Court considered that Guan Biling, as a legislator, has a certain degree of political experience, as well as the ability to collect information and verify information, but she stated unconfirmed content, which has damaged Sun Tianqun's reputation.

The Civil Court of the North Court emphasized that Sun Tianqun was not a Taiwanese citizen. Before the Wang Liqiang spy case, Sun Tianqun was not a household name. Therefore, his right to reputation should be protected to a higher degree than that of public figures. Therefore, Guan Biling should pay 160,000 yuan in compensation, but he does not need to publish clarification statement.
