Air Mauritius has issued a statement in response to the recent events linked with Yogita Babboo-Rama’s case. It says that the company has been closely following the developments surrounding the recent dismissal of Ms Yogita Babboo, a former employee of the airline, it says. MK had given Ms Babboo numerous opportunities to explain her statements and allegations made on the radio show. Unfortunately, she refused to do so, the statement said yesterday.
Consequently, Air Mauritius, in accordance with the provisions of the law, had no choice but to terminate her employment. According to the document, the national airline reiterates its commitment to comply with the law and cooperate fully with any legal proceedings and is ready to provide any additional information and explanations requested by the competent authorities. According to the press release issued yesterday, Air Mauritius affirms its commitment to respect justice and to follow the applicable legal procedures, as it has faith in the country’s institutions and laws.
It also assures all stakeholders that its actions will continue to be guided by the principles of respect for the law. It also states that “it has been determined that Ms Babboo breached the terms of her employment contract by making defamatory, unfounded, erroneous, misleading, inaccurate and/or unfair comments on a radio program, causing serious damage to the airline’s reputation, both locally and internationally”.
