New Delhi: A company in the United Arab Emirates sacked and deported one of its employees after he reportedly celebrated the recent Christchurch attack.

As many as 50 people were killed in a lone wolf attack by an Australian, named Brenton Tarrant, who gunned down Muslims praying in mosques on Friday, March 15.

Transguard, a security company, in its statement said that: Over the weekend, a Transguard employee made inflammatory comments on his personal Facebook account celebrating the deplorable mosque attack in Christchurch, New Zealand. This prompted an internal investigation, which uncovered the fact that the individual in question had been posting his views on social media under an assumed name.

After verifying this person’s actual identity, he was apprehended by Transguard, stripped of his security credentials, terminated from our employment and handed over to the relevant authorities as per company policy and UAE Cybercrime Law No. 5 of 2012. As of this statement, he has been deported by the UAE government.

Transguard, an Emirates Group brand, did not disclose the alleged comments. The name, nationality and position of the employee were also not disclosed.

The man’s ‘Inflammatory’ remarks insinuate that the martyrdom of the 40 CRPF personnel killed in the Pulwama terror attack has been avenged.
