The Huaiyin District Procuratorate of Jinan dismissed the "Application for Review of the Necessity of Detention"
Lawyer Li Yongheng and Zhang's family reached a communication last Wednesday, then met with Zhang in the detention center, and formally accepted the entrustment of Zhang's family on September 13 to become his attorney. Li Yongheng said that the evidence presented so far shows that Zhang is initially believed to have moral flaws, next, he and Zhang's family will continue to submit a legal opinion on Zhang's innocence step by department.
Li Yong told the Red Star News reporter that from the analysis of the evidence currently available, he initially believed that Zhang did not constitute compulsory molestation, "but there are moral flaws." Li Yongheng said that after investigation, Zhang and Ali female employee Zhou, there is no hidden rules of the workplace relationship, "Zhang was invited by colleagues to" rub wine "that night, the cooperation contract between Ali and Jinan Hualian was signed, and there is no causal relationship with Zhang."
There are two men involved in the "Ali female employee Case": Wang Mouwen, an employee of Jinan Hualian Supermarket, on September 6, the Huaiyin District Procuratorate of Jinan City reported that the forced indecency committed by Wang Mouwen did not constitute a crime and did not approve the arrest; While Zhang is still in custody.
Li Yongheng said that the current analysis found that Zhang's behavior constituted the crime of compulsory indecency. It is speculated that the Jinan prosecutors and police believed that the drunkenness of Ali's female employee Zhou had objectively reduced her sexual prevention ability. Li Yongheng did not agree with this. "People do not completely lose their ability to prevent themselves as soon as they drink alcohol. According to the information currently available, zhou had cuddling with Zhang at the dinner that day, which showed that she was self-conscious and did not conform to the reaction of the victim after being forced to molest after walking out of the private room."
In addition, Li Yongheng said that on the night of the dinner, Ali and Hualian each had 4 people attending, with a total of 2 women and 6 men, and a woman at the scene did not drink alcohol at all. "First of all, the police report showed that Zhou had vomited alcohol that night, and the degree of drunkenness would be reduced after vomiting, so during the dinner or out of the private room to vomit and return to the way, Zhou would not completely lose consciousness." Li Yongheng said, "Secondly, Zhou took the initiative to contact Zhang on the night of the dinner and the next morning, and invited him to the hotel where he stayed, this behavior also does not meet the reaction of the victim after being forced to molest."
Li Yong told the Red Star News reporter that the most abnormal point in this case is that when Zhou called the police for the first time, he did not say anything about Zhang's behavior, "6 days after the incident, that is, August 4th, zhou Mou mentioned Zhang to the police."
Li Yongheng said that last Friday they had submitted an application for examination of the necessity of detention to the people's Procuratorate of Huaiyin District, Jinan City, hoping that the procuratorate could re-examine whether Zhang constituted compulsory indecency. Today, Li Yongheng and Zhang's family received a rejection application from the Huaiyin District Procuratorate.
