Chinese billionaire businessman Liu Qiangdong, accused of rape during a recent Minneapolis trip, will have to appear in a U.S. court if prosecutors decide to bring charges against him, the county prosecutor’s office said.

Liu, the 45-year-old chief executive officer of U.S.-listed Chinese e-commerce giant, was arrested in Minnesota’s Hennepin County on suspicion of rape last Friday but was released the next day and has returned to Beijing.
