财经网讯】今日,京东官方在第一时间发表声明称,“今天, 明尼阿波利斯市亨内平县检察官办公室宣布,其将不会对京东集团CEO刘强东先生提起任何指控。我们欢迎这个决定,京东集团将继续致力于为全球客户和合作伙伴提供最好的服务,为投资者创造长期价值。”

京东方面称,这也意味着该案正式结案,刘强东无罪。

此外,刘强东律师发布声明称,亨内平县检察官办公室不对刘强东先生提起指控的决定,证实了刘强东先生是无辜的。他认为,刘强东先生因虚假指控被逮捕,在他全面配合调查之后,司法部门的结论证明了他是无辜的。

另外,财经网获悉,亨内平郡检察官迈克·弗里曼(Mike Freeman)宣布,不会对涉嫌性侵案件的中国商人刘强东提起诉讼。

检方称,经过明尼阿波利斯警察局性犯罪部门的彻底调查和四名高级性侵案检察官的细致审查,确定存在严重的证据问题,这使得任何刑事指控无法证明超出合理怀疑。

“就像许多性侵犯案件一样,这是一个复杂的情况,”弗里曼称,“它也与其他性侵犯案件类似,无法证伪性行为是双方同意的。当我们审查监控录像,短信,警察随身摄像机视频和证人陈述时,很明显我们无法达到我们的举证要求,因此我们无法提出指控。因为我们不想让年轻女性再次受害,所以我们不会详细说明。”

美国检方宣布刘强东无罪 律师称有人在调查期间不断散布大量的不实和误导信息

以下为明尼阿波利斯市亨内平县检察官办公室声明:

No sexual assault charges against Chinese businessman

No charges will be filed against Chinese businessman Liu Qiangdong for an alleged sexual assault, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman announced Friday.

After a thorough investigation by the Minneapolis Police Department sex crimes unit and a meticulous review by four senior, sexual assault prosecutors, it was determined there were profound evidentiary problems which would have made it highly unlikely that any criminal charge could be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.

“As is the case in many sexual assault incidents, it was a complicated situation,” Freeman said. “It is also similar to other sexual assault cases with the suspect maintaining the sex was consensual. As we reviewed surveillance video, text messages, police body camera video and witness statements, it became clear that we could not meet our burden of proof and, therefore, we could not bring charges. Because we do not want to re-victimize the young woman, we will not be going into detail.”

As has been previously reported in the press, Liu, 45, was in Minneapolis as part of a program at the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management. On Aug. 30, he and a large number of friends and associates went to dinner at an Uptown restaurant. One of the people invited to the dinner was a 21-year-old female student. 

After dinner, the woman rode with Liu and others to a home on Franklin Avenue and eventually to her apartment near the university later that evening. After several hours, in the early morning of Aug. 31, a fellow student and friend of the woman’s, called the police. Officers arrived at the woman’s apartment where they spoke to her and to Liu. Based on the information they learned from the woman that night, officers ended the call and took Liu back to his hotel. Liu was arrested later that day at the University of Minnesota. 

During the review of the evidence by the prosecutors, which consisted of three men and one woman, it was discovered that portions of the evidence included conversations and messages in Mandarin that were translated to English. That evidence included video from a body camera worn by the officers that captured conversations between Liu and the woman inside her apartment, and later, portions of the conversation between the two of them after the woman asked to speak privately with Liu before he was transported back to his hotel. 

The substance of those conversations, along with all of the other evidence including statements from the woman and others, as well as footage from multiple surveillance cameras, do not support criminal charges in this case. 

The three months it took for the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office to review the case and make a decision is not unusual for a sexual assault case, especially one in which no one is in custody. It had nothing to do with Liu’s status as a wealthy, foreign businessman. Nor did the county attorney’s office consider rumors involving Liu or the victim after the investigation was complete.

The Hennepin County Attorney’s Office and Hennepin County Attorney Freeman will not be commenting further.

以下为刘强东律师声明:

我们欢迎亨内平县检察官办公室不对刘强东先生提起指控的决定。这证实了我们从一开始就坚信的——刘强东先生是无辜的。刘强东先生因虚假指控被逮捕,在他全面配合调查之后,司法部门的结论证明了他是无辜的。刘强东先生感谢司法部门的公正决定以及为此所做的大量工作。

尽管检察官办公室认为不应该对刘强东先生提起指控,但就像任何被诬告犯罪的人一样,刘强东先生的名誉已经严重受损。有人在调查期间不断散布大量的不实和误导信息,基于对法律程序的尊重以及等待检方的最终决定,我们对此均未加评论,希望今天的结论和将来警方调查人员公布的证据可以澄清此前大量流传的错误信息和猜测。

Privileged & Confidential: Prepared at Request of Counsel

Jill’s Media Statement for International/US Media

12 21 2018

Statement from Jill (As of Dec. 21, 2018 as of 12 AM BJT)  

We welcome the decision made by the Hennepin County Attorney's Office that no charges will be filed against Mr. Liu. This confirms our strong belief from the very beginning that my client is innocent. Mr. Liu was arrested based on a false claim, and after a thorough investigation, with which he fully cooperated, the declination of charges vindicates him. Mr. Liu is grateful for the hard work of law enforcement to resolve this matter. 

Even though the prosecutor determined no criminal charges were warranted, Mr. Liu’s reputation has been damaged like anyone falsely accused of a crime. It was unfortunate that a great deal of unsubstantiated and misleading information was disseminated by certain sources. Meanwhile, we have refrained from commenting on the case out of respect for the judicial process while we waited for the prosecutor’s final decision. We hope the determination today, and the evidence that will be disclosed by police investigators, will fully dispel the misinformation and speculation that has been widely circulated.
