Son of Chinese tenor charged with rape


20:47, July 08, 2013

BEIJING, July 8 (Xinhua) -- A Beijing district procuratorate on Monday filed rape charges against five people, including the son of famous singer Li Shuangjiang.

The Beijing Haidian District People's Procuratorate only gave the surname of one suspect as Li, but confirmed that the case is the same gang rape case that had previously been investigated by district police.

Police insiders previously said that Li Shuangjiang's son is among five suspects who allegedly gang raped a woman in a hotel after drinking in a bar in February.

The Haidian District People's Court is expected to hear the case.

Li Shuangjiang, who is the dean of the music department of the People's Liberation Army Academy of Arts, is most known for his renditions of patriotic songs.

His son, however, has created controversy in recent years due to his unruly behavior.

The 17-year-old and another teenager attacked a couple who allegedly blocked their driveway near the entrance of a residential community in Beijing two years ago. He was later sent to a government correctional facility for one year.
