A reporter from Aoyi News contacted a colleague of Xiao Zhang, who said he was also at the dinner party that night. "At that time, Xiao Zhang came back from the boss's table with a toast, and the boss publicly offered to give Xiao Zhang 5000 yuan to drink, but no one responded. Later, he said 10000 yuan. At this time, Xiao Zhang asked what to do if he won the drink, and the boss said he would give him 20000 yuan if he won. If he lost the drink, he would ask him to pay another 10000 yuan to invite the entire company to have afternoon tea," said the colleague, Afterwards, the company boss selected several colleagues to compete with Xiao Zhang for a drink. Another colleague of Xiao Zhang said to his family that the driver of his boss, Yang Moumou, was among the people who made the wine.

Regarding the dissolution of the company, the colleague of Xiao Zhang mentioned above also confirmed that the company did indeed announce its dissolution the next day, and subsequently received relevant salaries. A colleague once stated that Xiao Zhang has a good personality and excellent work ability. When he sees a colleague encounter difficulties, he actively shares his experience. "Customers and colleagues who have dealt with him highly recognize him. Regarding this matter, a reporter from Aoyi News attempted to contact the relevant person in charge of the company, but the phone was unable to be reached. At present, the Shenzhen police have intervened in this matter. Lawyer's Opinion Regarding this matter, Lawyer Mao Peng from Guangdong Shengdian Law Firm believes that the deceased died due to drinking too much during a group building dinner. To determine whether the deceased's boss would have committed a criminal offense, the key is to evaluate based on the objective situation at the time. If the employee is forced to drink alcohol by using their boss's identity, they cannot refuse, ultimately leading to the death of the employee due to drinking alcohol, which may constitute the crime of negligent death; But if the ultimate damage occurs, although it is related to the boss and although the boss has certain faults, the deceased also has some faults (such as not actively refusing or feeling unwell and not actively stopping), in the case of mixed faults, the public security organs may not necessarily file a criminal case. Lawyer Mao Peng stated that even if this case does not ultimately constitute a criminal case, it is not ruled out that the family members of the deceased may file civil claims against the boss and colleagues who participated in the on-site drinking. The standard and requirements for determining the liability of civil claims are lower than those of criminal cases. Even if the deceased's boss and those who participated in the on-site drinking in this case do not constitute criminal liability, it does not mean that they can be fully exempted from liability in the field of civil claims.
