BY UPESI REPORTER,NAIROBI,2ND MARCH,2020-Kenya Airways’ decision to suspend employee Gire Ali has been set aside by a Nairobi court after he moved to court to challenge the move.
At the same time, the court also stopped the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) from arresting and charging Mr. Gire.
Gire, an Assistant Security Agent at Kenya Airways moved to court on Monday seeking court orders to void the letter suspending him from work until the hearing and determination of the case.
Similarly, he sought orders restraining the prosecuting agency from arresting, arraigning and/or charging him.
Gire alleges that Kenya Airway seems to be keen on punishing him for exposing to the nation a threat to their lives.
He told court the decision to suspend him was made in bad faith and in brazen violation of public interest and the applicant is suffering while as he never contravened any rules and regulations of the 1st Respondent.
He also holds that he is facing imminent threat of arrest and arraignment before a criminal court to answer to criminal charges of terrorism.
