Al Jazeera excutive claims she was forced out for being “a woman, a Christian and Western”


A former female executive at Al Jazeera English is seeking more than £1 million compensation at an employment tribunal on the grounds of race, sex and religious discrimination, reports The Telegraph.

Jo Burgin, the former head of planning, is seeking compensation over the non-renewal of her contract in April 2007 and has branded the management of the news channel as “inconsistent, inefficient and malicious” and said she was forced out of her job because she was “a woman, a Christian and Western”.
