Wter Engineer begins hunger strike


WATER ENGINEER Sohrab Baghri has this week begun a hunger strike demanding that charity Plan International publishes reports that he claims expose its failings on infrastructure projects. The first was a report he wrote a year ago while working for the charity as a global water and sanitation engineer and the second was an independent report by Loughborough University. He claims that both support his allegations that work is being carried out to a poor standard. Baghri began his strike this week after being made redundant from his position as a global water and sanitation engineer at the firm, following 18 months of discussions. He claims that he was unfairly dismissed.

However a Plan spokesman explained that his redundancy was part of a decentralisation strategy begun by the charity a year ago. He added that it was reviewing the Loughborough University report that it only received on Monday and would make copies available in the coming days.
