中英对照:京东老板刘强东强奸案最新最权威报道,你看他会没事吗?

11月2日,美国明尼阿波利斯《星坛报》源引知情人消息,再爆更多案件内幕:疑似性侵受害人告诉警方,案发当晚刘强东喝了酒,随后在疑似性侵受害人的公寓内对其实施了性侵,尽管她一直恳求刘强东不要这么做。

明尼阿波利斯《星坛报》根据疑似受害人的证词和消息源提供的叙述,以及多方收集,还原了刘强东疑似性侵案发当晚的过程:

刘强东设宴

当时,刘强东正在参加明尼苏达大学卡尔森管理学院为中国商业领袖举办的一个精英博士项目。

而此案的疑似受害人是一名21岁中国女留学生,她正在明尼苏达大学攻读商业博士学位。

当地时间8月30日,校方本来安排刘强东和精英博士项目的同学们观看校橄榄球队的揭幕战,随后在体育场举办自助晚宴。但刘强东通过助理预订了明尼阿波利斯市区的日本料理餐厅Origami Uptown,举办了一场宴会,宴请大约15名同学和同行人。

疑遭性侵受害女生被不停灌酒

疑遭性侵的受害女生作为一名学生志愿者受邀出席,她早前被告知晚宴是为了感谢他们这些志愿者而举行的,于是同意了。不过在晚宴当天,她发现自己是唯一受邀的志愿者,所以她请求一名同为志愿者但男性友人一同前往。

据消息来源的说法,席间她坐在刘强东旁边。她的男性友人则和刘强东的助手坐在另一张桌子旁。

疑遭性侵受害人律师弗罗林说:“酒席上这些高管们互相敬酒,并反复向疑遭性侵受害女生敬酒。” “她觉得自己被迫应承喝酒,并且喝醉了。”

律师弗罗林还称,当晚,刘强东的助理曾先后两次找疑遭性侵受害女生的男性友人陪同外出买酒。根据附近一家酒行的收据显示,他们共买了32瓶葡萄酒,共花费3600美元。

据知情人士称,期间,疑遭性侵受害人的男性友人还接到一个电话,被要求陪同另一名从中国来的学员去距该日本餐厅半小时车程的另一地参加一场晚宴,这名男性友人之后便离开了。

被拖进车内进一步身体接触

消息人士称,疑遭性侵受害人在晚宴结束后表示想回家,并请刘强东的一名助手帮她叫车。该助理走出餐厅让刘强东的司机开来一辆黑色SUV,她以为这辆车就是助理帮她叫的出租车,所以就进了车内,而刘强东跟在她后面也上了车,刘的助手则坐在前排座位。

司机将他们带到明尼阿波利斯南部一座宅邸外,疑遭性侵受害人下车意识到不是自己家附近,于是拒绝进入该宅邸,并重申了要回家的意愿。在短暂的对峙后,他们回到了车中。

“他把我拖进车里,”疑遭性侵受害人在后来发给一位朋友的短信中说。 “他开始在车内有更进一步的身体接触。我求他住手,但他不听……”

跟入屋内实施强奸

消息源称,大约晚上11点,司机停在疑遭性侵受害人公寓大楼前。她下了车,刘强东跟着她,告诉司机和助理他会马上回来,疑遭性侵受害人在打开了自己的公寓门后刘强东跟了进去。

她后来告诉警方, 在公寓内,刘强东不顾她的反对强行脱下她的外套。刘强东还告诉她:你可以就像邓文迪一样!

“我跟他说’不’,说了好几次。”她还告诉警方,刘强东试图脱下她的裙子和内衣,抓着她的手臂试图将她摁到床上。

“我们在床上扭打,最后我推开了他,跑到客厅穿上了内衣,但他最后还是把我扔到了床上,他很重,我试图推开他,但他压在我身上……然后他强奸了我。”

害怕不敢报警

凌晨2点05份,疑遭性侵的受害者向朋友发微信说:

“刘强东在我的床上。”

“我被他睡了。”

“我不是自愿的……我想逃跑。”

朋友建议她:“试着报警吧,看他能怎样?”

疑遭性侵的受害女生回复:“他有钱有势,你别小看他,”“别报警。”

根据消息人士透露,疑遭性侵的受害女生也给那晚陪同她出席晚宴的男性朋友发消息讲述了性侵事件。随后,该男性友人来到她公寓,在外面报了警。

凌晨3点,警方到达公寓,将刘强东带入巡逻车中盘问。但受疑遭性侵的害女生表示她不希望警方介入调查。因此,警方没有逮捕刘强东,而是将其送回了酒店。

刘强东被捕

疑遭性侵的受害者的朋友最终说服她前往医院进行性侵犯检查。

在周五的课上,学校的工作人员得知此事报了警,并在学校找到了疑遭性侵的受害女生,记录了她的叙述。

周五晚上,刘强东抵达学校,并没有注意到有警察在,随后他被等候他的警方带走拘留。

消息人士说,疑遭性侵的受害女生当时仍然感到害怕,仍然不愿意进行调查,而刘强东在周六获释。

到了周六晚上,经过与朋友们的更多讨论后,她最终决定对刘强东提起诉讼,并再度联系了警察。

次日,刘强东回国。

对于《星坛报》的这篇报道,明尼阿波利斯警察局和明尼苏达大学发言人都拒绝置评。

刘强东的代表律师Jill Brisbois重申不会对此事发表看法,称目前不会向媒体公开证据,也不想要影响司法程序。

律师在给《星坛报》的回复邮件中写道:“当检察官仍在对案件进行考虑时,《星坛报》发表片面报道是不公平的。”

目前,刘强东案还在等待裁决。

不过报道里刘强东的一句话却颇耐人寻味,他对疑遭性侵受害女生说——你也可以像邓文迪一样。

University of Minnesota student told police she pleaded with billionaire, ‘I don’t want to do that’

The Hennepin County attorney is weighing whether to charge Richard Liu with a sexual assault
Liu Qiangdong, also known as Richard Liu, the founder of the Beijing-based e-commerce site JD.com.

While the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office assesses whether to charge Chinese billionaire Richard Liu with sexual assault, his alleged victim has told police he raped her in her apartment after a night of drinking as she pleaded with him to stop, the Star Tribune has learned.

News of Liu’s arrest more than two months ago made headlines across the world and especially in China, where he is an internet entrepreneur and one of the country’s wealthiest men. Few details of what happened that night have been made public, and Minneapolis police have declined to discuss the case. The County Attorney’s Office has not set a timeline for when it will make a decision.

The Star Tribune has reviewed text messages, portions of the 21-year-old alleged victim’s interviews with police, and other documents that piece together her account of the night leading up to Liu’s arrest, which occurred when he was studying in an elite doctoral program for Chinese executives at the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management.

Liu, 45, also known as Liu Qiangdong, is the founder of Beijing-based JD.com, an e-commerce site similar to Amazon with more than 300 million customers. Liu has an estimated net worth of $5.4 billion.

“I’m a normal student,” the alleged victim begged Liu, according to an account she gave police regarding the Aug. 31 incident, shared by a source with the Star Tribune. “You have a family. I don’t want to do that. I don’t want to do this.”

“He didn’t listen to me,” she would go on to tell police.

The alleged victim, a native of China, is studying business and hoping to obtain a doctorate. Her Florida-based attorney, Wil Florin, who also has an office in Bloomington, said she has fully cooperated with police and “stands ready to cooperate with the county attorney.”

Liu returned to China shortly after his release from jail. Jill Brisbois, a Minneapolis attorney who represents Liu, said that her client committed no wrongdoing.

“Richard maintains his innocence, has cooperated fully with the investigation, and was quickly released by police without any restriction on his travel and without being required to post bail,” Brisbois said in a statement this week. “We believe his innocence will be apparent once a determination has been made and all evidence is disclosed to the public.”

The Star Tribune reviewed text messages the alleged victim sent from her apartment near campus.

“I didn’t do it willingly … I want to escape,” she texted a friend in Mandarin, adding that Liu was in her bed. “I couldn’t escape. How could I know that Qiangdong Liu would come to mess with me. I’m just a normal girl. I’m not eyeing anyone’s deep pocket. I repeatedly begged him not to touch me.”

‘I told him no’

In 2017, the Carlson School launched its four-year doctoral program for Chinese executives in collaboration with Tsinghua University in Beijing. It’s described by the U as a professional degree program for high-level executives in China and is “tailored for top executives in Chinese business.” Students pay an average of $75,000 to the Carlson School to attend the four-year program.

So far, 236 executives have enrolled in the program with an average age of 50, with 20 years of work experience. While most of the classes are taught at Tsinghua, summer residency programs take place in Minneapolis. Liu was among a group that was in town that week in late August. In addition to classes, the U hosted social events, university documents show. On Aug. 30, the doctoral students attended a morning class on “global branding,” followed by a visit to General Mills. The U then arranged for them to attend the Gophers’ first football game of the season, along with a buffet dinner at TCF Bank Stadium.

Instead, Liu, through an assistant, paid for a dinner for himself and about 15 of his classmates and fellow executives at Origami, a Japanese restaurant in the Uptown area of Minneapolis, a source said.

According to a source’s account of that night:

The alleged victim, who was one of 10 student volunteers, was asked to join the executives at the dinner, which she was told was held to honor the volunteers. She agreed, but then discovered on the day of the dinner she was the only volunteer invited, so she received permission to allow a male friend and fellow volunteer to join her.

About 20 people attended the dinner, including the male executives, the alleged victim, her friend and the executives’ three female assistants.

According to the source, she was seated at the end of the executives’ table, next to Liu. The assistants and her friend sat at another table.

Florin, the alleged victim’s lawyer, confirmed that she attended a dinner where the liquor flowed.

“The executives toasted each other and repeatedly toasted my client,” Florin said. “She felt coerced to drink and acknowledge their toasts and became intoxicated.”

Florin said that twice during the night, one of Liu’s assistants asked her male friend to accompany her to go out and buy more wine. Receipts from a nearby liquor store provided to the Star Tribune show they spent more than $3,600 on 32 bottles of wine.

The source said that at some point during the evening, the alleged victim’s male friend received a phone call to accompany another Chinese executive to dinner a half-hour’s drive from Origami, and he left.

After the dinner at Origami, the source said that the alleged victim wanted to go home and asked one of Liu’s assistants to summon her a car from a ride service. She walked out of the restaurant as Liu’s driver pulled up in a black SUV. She thought it was the ride service and got in the vehicle, the source said, and Liu got in behind her.

The source said that with Liu’s assistant in the front seat, the driver took them to an ivy-covered mansion in south Minneapolis. She got out and realized that she was unfamiliar with where she was. She reiterated her desire to go home, and resisted going inside. After a brief confrontation they got back in the SUV.

“He dragged me into the vehicle,” she later wrote in a text message to a friend. “He started to make physical advances inside the vehicle. I begged him to stop but he didn’t listen. …”

A source said that at about 11 p.m. the limo driver pulled up at the woman’s apartment complex near the university. She got out and Liu followed her, telling the driver and the assistant he would be right back, she would tell police. The woman unlocked her apartment door and Liu followed inside.

Inside the apartment, she told police, he pulled off her sweater over her protests. She said that Liu told her she could be just like Wendi Deng, the Chinese-born ex-wife of Australian media executive Rupert Murdoch.

“I told him ‘no’ several times,” she told police. She also told police that he tried to pull off her skirt and bra, held her arms and tried to throw her onto her bed.

“We were battling against each other on the bed and finally I escaped from him and went back to the living room and put the bra back on again,” she said in the interview. “Finally, he just threw me onto the bed. He was on me. He was heavy. I tried to push him away. But he was on top of me … and then he raped me.”

Afterward, the woman chronicled to friends what happened in text messages over WeChat, a Chinese social messaging system.

“Liu Qiangdong is in my bed,” she wrote at 2:05 a.m. Friday “He forcibly took me away last night and couldn’t escape,” she wrote in a second message.

“I was slept by him,” she wrote, the Mandarin idiom for being raped. “I didn’t do it willingly … I want to escape.”

“What can he do to you if you call the police?” one friend asked.

“He is going to exercise his power. You underestimate him,” the alleged victim wrote. “Don’t call the police.”

According to a source, the 21-year-old also sent a text to the male friend who had accompanied her that night, telling him of the sexual assault. He drove to her apartment complex and called 911 from outside.

When police arrived at the apartment at about 3 a.m., they placed Liu in a patrol car and questioned him, but the alleged victim told police said she did not want them to investigate. Rather than arrest Liu, police drove him to the Ivy Hotel, where he had a penthouse suite, a source said.

Friends eventually convinced the alleged victim to go to the hospital for a sexual assault exam, and accompanied her there, the source said.

Florin, the alleged victim’s attorney, said that over the course of Friday, staffers with the U’s doctoral program learned of the alleged rape. Police were called, and on Friday evening they met with the victim on campus, where she gave a statement.

Liu, meanwhile, also arrived at the Carlson School on Friday evening, unaware that police were there. He was arrested and taken to the Hennepin County jail.

The source said that the alleged victim, still fearful, remained unwilling to pursue an investigation and Liu was released on Saturday. But by Saturday evening, after more discussions with friends, she made a final decision to pursue a case against Liu, and again reached out to police. The following day, Liu returned to China.

Awaiting a decision

University of Minnesota spokeswoman Caitlin Hurley has declined to discuss the allegations.

“The University of Minnesota cannot comment, per Federal law, on matters related to any specific allegations involving any student at the University of Minnesota,” she wrote in an e-mail.

Brisbois, one of Liu’s attorneys, also reiterated that she could not discuss the case.

“We are not at liberty to discuss this investigation nor share evidence with the media right now because we respect and do not want to interfere with the judicial process, Brisbois said via e-mail. It is unfair for the Star Tribune to publish a one-sided story when the prosecutors are still considering the case.”

Darcy Horn, a spokeswoman for the Minneapolis Police, declined to comment, referring questions to the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office.
