Press Releases


DW has terminated its working relationship with a freelancer from the Arabic Department, with immediate effect. The colleague published a post on his private Facebook page, unmistakably calling for a criminal offence.

Deutsche Welle immediately examined the issue and thoroughly discussed it with the freelancer, who confirmed that the post was authentic.

The position of Deutsche Welle is clear: Under no circumstances will DW tolerate such behavior. Deutsche Welle has taken appropriate steps in accordance with the employment law and terminated the working relationship with the freelancer. Furthermore, DW is examining taking possible legal steps against him.
