2015 Sexual harassment suicide

At a 2014 year-end party a part-time nurse at the paper was sexually harassed by two members of the staff from the paper's general affairs department. Two months later she killed herself, after sending criticisms of the paper to 13 news organisations. The woman's family considered the paper to be responsible, and filed criminal complaints against the two staff members.[2]
