A government sector employee has filed a lawsuit to demand the cancellation of a decision taken by the Administrative Department in his workplace to deduct a portion of his salary for the comments he made in a seminar entitled, “Injustice and its Impact on the People”, reports Al- Nahar daily.
Lawyer for the plaintiff, Attorney Hawra Al-Habib, submitted a complaint to the workplace of her client before filing the case but no action was taken so they decided to resort to the court. She revealed her client was punished through salary deduction due to the comments he posted on Instagram about the seminar. She affirmed the comments were clear and had no offensive words against the administration or disrespect towards his colleagues.
She asserted that since the defendant joined the institution, he always sets a good example and is known among his colleagues for his dedication to his job. She said these characteristics made her client gain the respect of his colleagues and superiors.
