Board of Directors Statement – April 28th, 2017

BEIRUT April 28th, 2017

It was recently brought to our attention that one of our journalists was engaging in abusive behavior on a public forum before and during the time he was working with Al-Masdar News.

Al-Masdar was unaware of the individual’s abusive history on this forum that included hate speech with derogatory remarks about certain gender, ethnic and racial groups.

Al-Masdar finds such behavior wholly unacceptable and strongly condemns it, as a result this individual officially resigned as of today and will no longer be affiliated with the company in any way.

On behalf of Al-Masdar, we would like to apologize to our readers and all those offended by the actions of the individual.

We thank you for your continued support of Al-Masdar!
