Alibaba's Jack Ma missing for more than 2 months

  • The mystery over the whereabouts of Alibaba and Ant Group founder Jack Ma has begun to intensify as reports surface that he failed to appear on his own talent show, and his social media accounts have gone dormant since October
  • In a speech delivered at the Bund Finance Summit in Shanghai on Oct. 24, Ma railed against China's traditional banks for operating with a "pawn shop" mentality
  • On Nov. 3, just two days before Ant Group's scheduled US$34Bn IPO, Chinese regulators pulled the plug on the process, while Ma was advised to remain in the country as officials launched an anti-monopoly inquest
  • On Jan. 1, the Financial Times reported that Ma was replaced on his own show, "Africa's Business Heroes," just before the finale was to take place. His photos were also taken down from the judging webpage, and he was nowhere to be seen in a promotional video
  • The Chinese government has a long history of taking ruthless measures against its domestic critics. In March of last year, real estate tycoon Ren Zhiqiang disappeared after calling Chinese Chairman Xi Jinping a "clown" for his poor handling of the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak
