"We’re saddened by our supervisors' imprisonment" - Marwako

The restaurant chain Marwako says it is saddened by the sentencing of one of its supervisors, Jihad Chabaan to nine months imprisonment for assaulting an employee, Evelyn Boakye.

The company, in a statement signed by Director of Public Relations, Alhaji Mohammed Amin Lamptey said though it was hoping the altercation between the two employees would have been settled out of court, it “respects the judgement and will continue to support both Mr. Chabaan, if he decides to appeal, as well as Madam Evelyn in her process.”

As parts of efforts to strengthen amongst staff, the company has began what it calls interdepartmental communication and employer-employee relationship as well as seminars on internal relations.

Jihad Chaaban, was reported in February to have shoved the victim, Evelyn Boakye, into some pepper.
