Zhao Zhiyong, a Chinese businessman, is said to have been executed after he was reportedly convicted for the rape of 25 underage schoolgirls.
According to Daily Mail, the Kaifeng Intermediate People’s court in the Henan province of central China said the alleged culprit had received the sentence after his arraignment in October 2018. He was executed on June 4, 2019, following the directive of the supreme court.
Zhiyong, who runs a flour production firm in China, was alleged to have had carnal knowledge of the young female students on 32 occasions within the space of one and a half years, including 14 girls who were not yet 14 years old.
“Li Na, Zhiyong’s accomplice, was sentenced to death with a two-year reprieve. He scouted for and supplied Zhiyong with girls between May 2015 and January 2017,” read an online statement.
Zhiyong reportedly lodged in hotels or took the victims to his home and forcefully had sexual intercourse with them.
He is also said to have had his mercenaries physically abused the victims and threaten them by taking pictures of their privates.
Zhiyong, 49, is renowned as an influential businessman in Kaifeng. Aside from his flour factory, he is also said to be the deputy head of the Kaifeng chamber of commerce and a representative of Kaifeng people’s congress.
