One of China’s highest-ranking Buddhist monks has denied explosive allegations of sexual misconduct, which accusers claim left at least one victim suicidal.

中国级别最高的和尚之一否认了爆炸式的不正当性行为指控,指控者们声称,其行为已使至少一名受害者自杀。

In a 95-page document submitted to Chinese authorities in July, two male monks at Beijing’s Longquan Temple accused Shi Xuecheng of sexually harassing and assaulting multiple female nuns.

在一份于7月份提交给中国相关部门的95页文件中,北京龙泉寺的两名和尚指责释学诚性骚扰和性侵了多名尼姑。

It comes at a time when women in China are pushing back hard against widespread sexual abuse, in a manner similar to the #MeToo movement in Western countries.

当前,中国的女性正在猛烈反击波及面甚广的性侵,这类似于西方国家的#MeToo运动。

Xuecheng, who is the abbot of Longquan Temple, is a high-profile figure who heads the Buddhist Association of China and serves as a national political adviser to the Communist government.

学诚为龙泉寺的住持,他相当有名,为中国佛教协会会长,同时担任共产党政府的国家政治顾问。

The 51-year-old, who has taken a vow of celibacy like most Buddhist monks, posted a brief statement Wednesday night, denying all allegations to his more than a million followers on his verified account on Weibo, China’s equivalent of Twitter.

51岁的他跟大多数和尚一样曾誓言禁欲。周三晚上,他向个人认证微博(中国版推特)账号上的100多万粉丝发布了一份声明,否认所有指控。

The statement, issued in the name of his temple, alleged the "organized and vicious" whistleblowers had "forged materials, distorted facts and spread false accusations" to mislead the public. It said the temple would ask the government to conduct an official investigation to "put the record straight."

该声明以龙泉寺的名义发布,声称“有组织和恶意的”举报者们“伪造素材,歪曲事实,散布不实举报材料”,误导大众。龙泉寺将提请政府展开调查,“以正视听”。

The State Administration for Religious Affairs said in a statement Thursday that the agency "attaches high importance" to the claims against Xuecheng and "has started investigation and verification work."

国家宗教事务局在周四的一份声明中表示,高度重视针对学诚的指控,并已展开调查核实工作。
