Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has dismissed its General Manager (GM) of security for sexual harassment of a female employee. The Chief Ombudsman, who reviewed the harassment complaint made by the affected PIA employee, announced the verdict. The female employee was working in the PIA Vigilance and Security Department when she filed the harassment complaint against the GM.
In 2019, Arshad Malik, the CEO of PIA, took notice of the allegation and forwarded it to the airline’s women’s protection committee. He instructed the committee to investigate the matter and submit a comprehensive report at the earliest. After conducting the investigation, the committee recommended the dismissal of the GM, a decision that the new PIA administration implemented.
Mashood Tajwar, the airline’s spokesperson, stated that the committee’s recommendations would be implemented with due care, and any objections from female employees would be addressed adequately.
