A procuratorate in Beijing rejected a case of online gambling filed against Guo Meimei for the second time after she was arrested in Beijing last July.
Guo, who’s linked to a massive Red Cross scandal from 2011 and has gained online notoriety for her various wealth-flaunting, scantily-clad antics, was picked up by cops in Beijing as the World Cup was heating up and arrested on charges of running an “illegal casino”.
During the games last summer, Guo said via social media that she was following all of the matches, and uploaded a lottery ticket with the caption: “It’s a little bet to test my luck and see if it’s true that the more beautiful one looks, the more fortunate one will be”
Guo was said to be passionate about gambling, and once owed as much as 260 million dollars in debts, according to reports.
She was arrested when an online World Cup gambling ring was shuttered on July 9, and was accused of being involved with the ring.
The court, however has rejected the high-profile case for a second time, the first time being around the Spring Festival holiday.
An anonymous source quoted in a CRI report said it was rejected because there wasn’t enough evidence to build a solid case against the suspects in the online gambling ring. The court told police to gather more evidence.
The same report said that a legal case can only be rejected by a procuratorate two times, and that Guo’s case is slated to be heard by a local court in June.
Last August, Guo appeared in a teary “confession” that aired on CCTV and admitted to gambling and prostitution accusations against her, saying: “There is never short of men who want me to be their mistress. But I don’t say yes to them all, because I have my standards, too.”
