Sany VP expresses confidence in lawsuit against Obama

Chinese heavy machine maker Sany Group Thursday expressed its determination to carry on in its lawsuit against US President Barack Obama, while a US court reviews whether to hear the case or not.

The Washington district court Wednesday began its hearing on a lawsuit filed by Ralls Corp, a US company owned by two executives of Sany Group, which challenges the US president and the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS).

Wu Jialiang, CEO of Ralls and vice president of Sany, said Thursday that he has faith in the justice of the US judicial system, and it is up to the US court to decide Ralls' fate.

A Bloomberg report said Thursday the US Department of Justice said the lawsuit "must be dismissed, arguing the Defense Production Act bars judicial review of presidential orders suspending or prohibiting an acquisition of a US business by a foreign person."

It may take the district court a week to give a result of its decision whether or not to accept this case. If the district court drops the case, Ralls will appeal to a higher court, Wu said.

Ralls was ordered on September 28 to shut down its scheduled four wind-farm projects in Oregon by Obama, due to US national security risks, as the farms are located near a naval training facility.

After negotiations for $20 million compensation with the CFIUS ended in vain, Sany took legal actions against Obama and CFIUS on October 1, arguing that the order is against the US constitution and no detailed evidence was offered.
