Xiao Jianhua was ranked 32nd on the Hurun Report in 2016. In early 2017, he mysteriously disappeared from Hong Kong, which attracted widespread attention both inside and outside China.

Canadian officials say Beijing has barred them from attending the trial of Canadian billionaire Xiao Jianhua.

The Canadian embassy in China said in a statement to the BBC on Tuesday (July 5) that Canadian consular officials had “repeatedly requested” to observe the proceedings, and “we were denied by the Chinese authorities.”

The statement added that embassy officials were “closely monitoring the case” and would “continue to request the participation of consular staff.”

In early 2017, the news of Xiao Jianhua’s disappearance from a luxury hotel in Hong Kong shocked home and abroad. After more than five years, the Xiao Jianhua case is reported to start on Monday (July 4).
