Chinese e-commerce company Alibaba fired a woman who said she was sexually assaulted by a colleague and buyer.
The end of the letter said that he had spread lies that had damaged the reputation of the company. A public employee went public with his allegations in August that Alibaba said he had not acted. He said the assaults occurred on a business route.
The colleague was subsequently fired, but criminal charges were dropped against him. The client is believed to be still under investigation by police. The widely disseminated case has highlighted the harassment of women in China.
a government employee told Daily Dahe that he had been fired last month. He posted a copy of what he said was the termination letter. The letter said he was spreading disinformation about the attack and the company is not handling the case.
He added that this “engaged in strong social anxiety and had a negative impact on society”. An employee is quoted as saying: “I have not gone wrong, and I certainly do not accept this issue, and in the future I will use the means to protect my rights and interests.” The woman’s attorney confirmed the fire to the New York Times.
Alibaba, China’s largest e-commerce company, did not immediately respond to BBC comments. What are the crimes? The woman’s account of the incident was published on page 11, in which she said she raped her colleague in a hotel when he was unaware after a “night of intoxication”.
The weather has unleashed on social media on Weibo, China’s Twitter as a platform. The woman claimed that a colleague, who held the senior management position in the company, forced her to travel to the city of Jinan, which is about 900 km (560) from Alibaba headquarters in Hangzhou, to assemble with a client.
