The national carrier of Tunisia, Tunisair has revoked the appointment of its new Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Olfa Hamdi over posting sensitive company’s documents on social media.
The minister of transport and logistics, Moez Chakchouk said that Hamdi had made “numerous mistakes” and was “unable to respect secrecy” entailing leakage of “internal documents”.
Recently, Hamdi had responded to attacks from the Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT) trade union on her Facebook account. The 30-year-old is accused of posting confidential documents on the social media.
The airline was without a CEO since July last year as Elyes Mnakbi was fired on corruption charges.
Tunisair has seen its passenger traffic and its turnover fall by approximately 70 percent during 2020. A restructuring plan had been announced by the Tunisian authorities last year, including a recapitalisation and layoffs.
