A news report:

The girl interviewed in this video says that when Song Shanmu discovered that she was going to switch to another company, they had a long talk where he said that although she is planning to quit, she is still at the moment working at Shanmu so he asked her to do some work and go clean a that needed to be prepared before someone moves in.

She then rode his Mercedes Benz to the apartment complex pictured in the Luohu District and followed his instructions for cleaning. When he threatened her, and as a result of being scared in a strange remote place, she falsely promised that she would remain working at Shanmu. He then demanded to take nude photos as a sign of her sincerity. She says that he had her say that she would stay while taking the photographs.

Thereafter, with him possessing nude photographs of her, she didn’t dare resist. She continues that he took out a massager/vibrator, used it on her 3-4 times, and then took off his pants. Despite warning, she still called the police the next day.

The news video above also shows security cameras footage of him entering the apartment complex with a girl on that day. An interviewed guard also says he often brings different women there, women he does not recognize.

Comments from NetEase:


Seeing that beard on his face, looks like a bastard.


Thousands of nude photos! Those who support their public release, ding me!


Bringing someone back to one’s own house to rape, this isn’t logical, unless the accuser is just after more money.


This kind of person must be punished severely! His younger sister even testifies to his innocent! If the person he raped was his younger sister, what would she say then? Us women must protect our own rights and interests!


Never go to Shanmu Training [for education/training]!!! Beware of being raped by perverts!!!


Song Shanmu: Ancestral home is Japan, his father was one of the defeated Japanese soldiers following the invasion and occupation of China. Later, unable to escape back to Japan, he changed his identity and lived in China, later marrying a Chinese girl and had a son. This Japanese person’s name was Shanmu Yi Ji. He, in order to commemorate/remember that he is Japanese yet afraid of Chinese people discovering that he is Japanese, named his son Shanmu, with the surname being his wife’s surname. Song Shanmu going to Japan multiple times was to visit his other Japanese relatives.


Shanmu is a “famous person”, has some influence, and not all the female victims dare to stand out. Without a death, the law cannot give him the death penalty, so I bet that in the end he will use guanxi [connections], stuff some cash, and the matter will “remain unresolved”. Comrades, with this society… pretend to be a little numb, a little befuddled, so you won’t die from anger!


Price wasn’t settled…being sued now.


Such a terrifying appearance, like a strange beast, no, like a beast!


I always thought Shanmu was Japanese?! It seems kind of beastly copulation is not something only Japanese people are capable of!


If the law is fair, please have him go die!


Just looking at his bear-like appearance, one can tell his sexual appetite/desire is very strong .


I always thought [he] was Japanese…turns out he’s Chinese…faint


You can get on CCTV as long as you spend money, CCTV is advertising for him.
