Chinese billionaire sued for raping assistant in NYC

A dissident Chinese businessman lured a woman to the U.S. for work as his personal assistant — and then raped her, a lawsuit filed Monday alleges.

Rui Ma, now 28, says in her Manhattan Supreme Court suit that she was working for one of billionaire Guo Wengui’s companies in China when she was summoned to meet him in New York City.

When she arrived, she says, Guo said she was going to work as his personal assistant.

Guo, who also goes by Miles Kwok, took her passport and routinely overworked her, all while becoming increasingly physically aggressive, Ma claims in her suit. She further alleges Guo raped her on two occasions.

When Ma was working at his home in London, she managed to escape to the Chinese embassy, she claims.

After Ma returned home to China, she filed criminal charges against him there, court papers state.

Lawyers for Guo could not immediately be reached.

Guo, who is seeking asylum in the U.S. for having criticized Chinese officials, did not immediately respond to a message left at his residence in the Sherry-Netherland hotel in Midtown.
