[LISTEN] Chowan: 'Lamberti has not taken responsibility for his sexist comment'

Former Imperial employee, Adila Chowan has slammed Imperial chief executive Mark Lamberti and says he has continued to underplay and belittle a court judgment which found him guilty of discrimination.

On Tuesday, the High Court in Johannesburg found that Lamberti had wrongfully impaired the dignity of Chowan, by referring to her as a female employment equity candidate.

Lamberti has since denied reports that the court judgment found findings of race or gender discrimination against AMH, Imperial or himself.

Chowan has refuted his statements.

The court very specifically stated that I was racially discriminated and he was sexist in the comments he made.

Mark Lamberti has not taken responsibility for what's transpired and that is very sad, I paid a very high price to bring light to what is really happening within the Imperial Group and Marke Lamberti continues to downplay it.
