Kris Wu (吴亦凡), is currently serving his 13-year sentence for rape and group promiscuity in China. The former EXO member will face deportation to Canada after his release.
Kris was found guilty and sentenced in November 2022. He has appealed the decision and his case was heard this week at Beijing’s No. 3 Intermediate People’s Court. The hearing took place in closed court to protect the privacy of the victims.
The People’s Court emphasized that the Canadian embassy in China was notified before Kris’ trial in accordance with relevant regulations. They also stated that Kris’s various litigation rights will be upheld during the trial, and the case will be sentenced according to the law.
China maintains an increasingly tough stance towards celebrities’ immoral or criminal behaviors, as artistes are blacklisted and face legal consequences. Despite Kris’ appeal, it is unlikely his sentence will be reduced given the current political atmosphere.
