    I agree that it is odd. But she said that she loved him and that Zhang felt lonely but could not leave his wife due to his powerful position. Again, her words not mine. You can find translations of her original weibo post online.

    I may be true love but a young woman having a relationship with much older person who has authority over them probably suggest it absolutely isn't.

    Can you post a link?

    And more importantly was HR notified and did they draw up a relationship agreement?

    A link...

    It does not sound consensual

    why did you come and look for me again, take me to your house, and force me into sex?
    No idea about HR and whether a relationship agreement was drawn up. Maybe was, but delivered by email and rejected?

    Anyone who goes from allegations of assault into a consensual relationship and back to allegations of assault has got to shoulder at least some of the blame.

    To me such a “consensual” relationship seems analogous to Stockholm syndrome. If you have no choice about something, you may just reframe it to something you can psychologically accept. If even after the reframe “I had to undergo the deed but we are in a relationship, or would be if he was not married” there is an expectation gap then I’m not sure the fault lies with the alleged victim rather than the figure with power.

    The on-off relationship characterisation is also possible, but firstly doesn’t seem likely from the get-go, and secondly doesn’t appear to be allowed free discussion.

    Think of the many accused of corruption and having mistresses and being executed in recent years and notice how selective that is, and we understand “rule of law” in China.

    For some lighter relief given this distressing topic.

    Zhang is in the good graces of Xi, nothing will happen to him. Sure, senior CCP officials have been brought down by corruption charges, but those are usually purges by Xi against his enemies. Zhang has avoided offending XI. Peng on the other hand, embarassed the CCP. That is an unforgivable crime. She is probably in some labor camp right now. Don't hold your breath on ever seeing her again.
