The death of Sun Danyong, the Foxconn worker who apparently committed suicide after an iPhone prototype went missing, has more secrets than what we knew.
One of the obvious things to follow was — As compensation, his family has been paid about $44,000, and his girlfriend received an Apple laptop.
What is that Macbook for? For reminding her of Sun all her life?
Let’s demystify more secrets about Foxconn story. Sun Danyong was given not just one, but 16 prototype iPhones on July 9 or 10 to deliver to R&D, and he reported one missing three days later. He committed suicide early in the morning on July 16, after allegedly suffering through brutal
interrogations, which showed how secret Apple’s products are.
Foxconn’s China GM James Lee told that Sun had a history of disappearing products: What?
“Several times he had some products missing, then he got them back,” and that they “don’t know who took the product, but it was at his stop.”
Was he a professional corporate thief or potentially a careless guy ?
Since James claimed that he usually used to get them back in 3 days, it looks as if he used to sell out the secrets outside of the company possibly to competitors. Looks like a deal he used to play t earn some serious cash. But this time something BIG went wrong. May be he was not able to bring it back, may the competitor company damaged it while studying the prototype. There are endless things that can be thought about it.
But strange thing so far is, investigation hasn’t yet disclosed any of these facts.
Sun had to deal with strange things before he committed suicide: Not long after Sun’s father finished telling journalists Foxconn treated the family well, a security guard with two men in Foxconn shirts appeared and threatened to beat up a journalist’s translator if they kept asking the family questions. Foxconn swears the guard didn’t wasn’t one of their guys.
It’s still hard for the company to blame Sun exclusively, we don’t know how far was Sun was responsible. Was this “Usual” behavior of his, a more serious conspiracy and confidential-leak for Foxconn?
What do you think?
