ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the detention of entrepreneur David Ji in China. Ji has spent nearly a year in custody in China without being charged with a crime. Sichuan Changhong Electric officials, meanwhile, have filed a breach-of-contract lawsuit in Los Angeles county court in California and are trying to take control of Ji's company, Apex Digital. A spokesman for the Chinese consulate in Los Angeles says, "This is a business dispute, but it is also a fraud. David Ji is being investigated for cheating people with bad checks."
