The action, filed on August 30 at the Huangpu District Court in Shanghai, finds Professor Xie Baisan claiming Deloitte has violated the spirit of the Chinese Anti-Secession Law, approved by the National People's Congress in March of 2005.

Professor Xie, a renowned finance and securities scholar at Fudan University, is asking Deloitte for an apology "to all the Chinese people" and compensation of 100,000 yuan for "spiritual" damages.

According to China's Anti-Secession Law, Article 2, there is only one China in the world. Both the mainland and Taiwan belong to one China, and China's sovereignty and territorial integrity brook no division; with Taiwan as part of China.
