It is far from clear whether Apple has undertaken that kind of legal review, or whether it is choosing to follow local law or US law in declaring the app illegal.

I think it's reasonable to conclude it was taken down by request of the Chinese authorities.

Got to keep the Chinese happy since most of your suppliers are based there and China is a massive market you don't to lose.
