China investigators drop argument against ex-Alibaba worker blamed for rape

Investigators in China have dropped an argument against a previous Alibaba worker blamed for rape.

Legal counselors in north-eastern Shandong area said the persuasive profanity perpetrated by the man, distinguished as Wang, was not a wrongdoing.

The worker was captured last month after a female representative of Alibaba said she was physically attacked on a work excursion.

Police in the city of Jinan, where the episode occurred, said the examination was shut yet that Wang will stay under detainment for 15 days as discipline.

The People’s Procuratorate of Huaiyin city in Jinan added that Mr Wang’s capture request was not endorsed.

Alibaba Group has a zero-resilience strategy against sexual wrongdoing, and guaranteeing a protected work environment for every one of our representatives is Alibaba’s main concern an Alibaba representative told the BBC because of fresh insight about the case being dropped.

The lady’s record of the episode was distributed in an eleven-page archive, in which she said the director assaulted her in a lodging while she was oblivious following an intoxicated evening.

The lady affirmed that the chief forced her into going to the city of Jinan, which is around 900km 560 miles from Alibaba’s administrative center in Hangzhou, for a gathering with a customer.

She blamed her bosses for requesting her to drink liquor with collaborators during supper.

She said that on the evening of 27 July the customer kissed her. She then, at that point, woke up in her lodging the following day without her garments on and without any memory of the prior night.

The lady said she acquired reconnaissance camera film that showed the director had gone into her room multiple times during the evening.
