An Indian manager of a Saudi-based company sacked a local employee after she refused to marry him, prompting a Saudi court to freeze the firm’s assets.

The girl told court that she received an email from her manager sacking her just after she turned down his request to marry him.

‘Okaz’ newspaper said the court asked the company in the Western Red Sea port of Yanbu to immediately reinstate the girl and pay her all arrear wages.

“The court later decided to freeze the company’s assets after it failed to implement that sentence.

“The judge also ordered police to bring the manager to court by force to investigate him about failure to abide by the court’s order,” the paper said.

It did not name that company, but said it has a large contract with the Gulf Kingdom’s state oil operator, Saudi Aramco.
