This is an unprecedented situation due to Liu’s public prominence and financial power and the fact that he is not being tried for rape in China, but in the United States.

The alleged victim, also of Chinese nationality, assures that the events occurred in 2018, when Liu was temporarily in Minnesota completing a special program for senior executives at the university.

At the time, complainant A was 21 years old and Liu was 46.

According to her version, Liu forced her to drink and groped her in his limousine, before raping her in an apartment.

Liu is the founder and former CEO of Chinese e-commerce giant JD.com and a well-known figure in his country.

The tycoon was already arrested in China on suspicion of having committed rape, but finally no charges were filed against him when the Prosecutor’s Office determined that there were problems in the evidence that was being presented.
