An update to the ongoing drama’s that have surrounded the amazing Ai Weiwei this year. The Chinese artist who was detained for almost 3 months earlier this year has been ordered to pay 15m yuan (£1.5m/$2.4 million) in tax by Chinese Officials. Ai Weiwei told the Guardian that he did not owe any tax money, adding “It’s a game they play all the time … They needed an excuse to take me away for 81 days.”

“I am a designer for the company; I am not the legal representative, nor the manager… I never signed papers or made a deal or transferred money – I was nothing to do with the accounting. They said I was the ‘actual controlling person’ of the company.”
