By Nectar GanXie Yu

China’s highest-earning actress Fan Bingbing has been ordered to pay nearly 892 million yuan (about US$130 million) for tax evasion and other offences, the country’s tax authorities announced on Wednesday, over three months after the film star disappeared from public view.

Fan, whose disappearance has caught global attention, was released from “residential surveillance at a designated location” – a form of secret detention – about two weeks ago as the tax authorities completed their investigation, sources with knowledge of her case told the South China Morning Post.
