Rabat – Zineb El Rhazoui, Moroccan-French columnist for the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, has been warned she may be laid off for “serious misconduct”, according to le Monde.
El Rhazoui, who has worked for Charlie Hebdo since 2011, was told by the magazine to immediately leave her post ahead of a meeting where her potential dismissal will be discussed.
Speaking to French daily le Monde, El Rhazoui said she was “shocked and appalled that a management that has received so much support since the attacks in January can show such little support to one of its own employees, and who, just like everyone else on the team, lives under threat.”
El Rhazoui told the French newspaper that the magazine’s decision was likely a “punitive measure” for being among the 11 Charlie Hebdo staff members who last month called for all employees to become equal shareholders in the magazine.
