The chief executive of the e-commerce giant was arrested late on Friday and was freed Saturday afternoon, CNBC reports.

The local police found no evidence of the alleged misconduct, the statement read, and Liu’s business trip has continued.

Liu has recently tried to distance himself from a sexual assault which took place after a party he threw in his penthouse in Australia in 2015.
