‘Rejoicing Christchurch incident’, UAE govt deports a man
A company in United Arab Emirates (UAE) has terminated an employee from his job, who allegedly celebrated mass killings of Muslims in Christchurch in New Zealand last week.
The company said employee was deported by UAE government. However, identity of terminated employee was not disclosed.
At least 50 people were killed and dozens wounded by a terrorist’s shooting belonging to Australia at two mosques in Christchurch on Friday in what is country’s worst modern mass shooting.
Australian Brenton Tarrant, 28, supremacist and living in New Zealand was charged with murder on Saturday.
“Over weekend, a Transguard employee made inflammatory comments on his personal Facebook account celebrating deplorable mosque attack in Christchurch,” Security Company Transguard said in a statement.
“We have a zero-tolerance policy for inappropriate use of social media and as a result this individual was immediately terminated and turned over to authorities to face justice,” Managing Director of Company said.
UAE has condemned attack and expressed its condolences to victims’ families and to New Zealand.
