Manchester Police, investigating sex offences at Chetham’s School of Music, have charged Wen Zhou Li with one count of raping a teenaged girl at Chet’s and two of indecent assault. Wen also taught at the Royal Northern college of Music.
He was arrested last February and has been bailed several times before charges were finally brought.
Wen, 59, who will appear in court on October 16, was something of a poster boy for the school in its bid for international students. Presumptions of innocence apply, pre-trial.
