“I was hit at least 10 times. It felt like he was try­ing to kill me.”

Global Times – Metro Beijing - - WORD MATTERS -

So said a woman named Zhang Jing (pseu­do­nym) on Tues­day. On June 11, 2017, Zhang pur­chased some prod­ucts on the in­ter­net. Four days later, Zhang saw an on­line mes­sage show­ing that her pack­age had been re­ceived, but nei­ther she nor her fam­ily re­ceived it, and she said she had not agreed to put her pack­age at the col­lec­tion point. There­fore, she lodged a com­plaint to the de­liv­ery com­pany about Wang, the post­man. On June 24, Wang went to Zhang’s apart­ment again and al­legedly hit and in­jured her with a stone. Zhang later sued the de­liv­ery com­pany and Wang, ask­ing both to apol­o­gize pub­licly and com­pen­sate her 768,000 yuan ($120,153). At court, Wang said he went to Zhang’s place later to ask her to re­tract her com­pli­ant as he had been fined 200 yuan, but the two got into a fight and Zhang bit him on the arm. Be­fore go­ing to court, Wang had been de­tained by the po­lice for five days and of­fered to com­pen­sate Zhang 4,000 to 5,000 yuan, but she re­fused. As the three par­ties agreed for me­di­a­tion af­ter court, the case was ad­journed. (Source: Beijing Youth Daily)
