A Sky employee who told a colleague that two young girls wearing short skirts would be raped ‘if this was Pakistan‘ has won an unfair dismissal case.
Retail advisor Raja Minhas, 44, made the comments about the teenagers as they walked past his shopping centre stand in Blackburn, Lancashire, in June 2019.
He was accused of saying that ‘girls in general who wear skirts like that and then get raped, it’s their own fault’, the tribunal heard.
Mr Minhas was working with his colleague, Mia Klemetti, at the time to drum up business for Sky products, the hearing was told.
The alleged comments sparked a heated row between Mr Minhas and Ms Klemetti, who said she would ‘rethink’ what she would wear when she worked with him again.
