|City Firm Tells Jewish Broker to Wear Hitler Costume
- Bosses defend "lighthearted" incident
THE GRANDSON of an Auschwitz victim was told to dress up as Adolf Hitler by fellow brokers at City firm Tullett and Tokyo Liberty.
Laurent Weinberger, now claiming unfair dismissal from TTL, was ordered to don Nazi regalia after turning up for work late. "I have heard nothing like it," said Weinberger's lawyer, Makboul Javaid. "It is extraordinary that this kind of treatment goes on in the 21st century."
TTL have promised to give UKP50,000 to a Jewish charity if Weinberger drops the case, but said it will contest matters if the offer is turned down, calling the incident "lighthearted."
"From time to time things were taken too far," a TTL spokesperson admitted, adding that Weinberger was one of many subject to the firm's regime of cretinous City-boy humour. Apparently Welsh latecomers were called sheep shagger and an Ulster Protestant was forced wear a Pope outfit.
