Foxconn eases claims against Chinese journalists

iPod manufacturer Foxconn has reduced its libel claim against the two Chinese journalists, who reported on the company’s substandard working conditions at its iPod plant, from 30 million yuan ($3.77 million) to a symbolic 1 yuan (12 cents). Foxconn said it would also seek to unfreeze the journalists’ personal assets. The company did not give a reason for the move, but journalists’ advocacy group Reporters Without Borders publicly condemned the suit, and Apple said it was working behind the scenes to help the journalists.

Eases? How about drops the suit altogether. And apologizes to boot. Foxconn should now be the ones hoping they don’t get sued.
