Song Shanmu’s (宋山木) detention period was extended one month while awaiting trial on a rape case for which he was arrested on May 21st. Song allegedly demanded a female employee to pose naked while he photographed her, and then used the photos as blackmail to force the employee to sleep with him.

Song Shanmu is the founder of Sun Moon Education Group, a multinational group training center with almost 300 branches in more than 20 cities including London and New York. Until recently, Song’s bearded grin could be seen on billboards around China.
