In a mail we received from the head office in South Africa, it stated the company Mr Price Strongly condemns the treatment of the “shoplifters” in the Accra Mall. Clothing chain Mr Price said today that it condemned, in the strongest possible terms, the treatment of three shoplifters at its Accra Mall on Monday.
Mr Price CEO Stuart Bird said: “We are conducting a thorough internal investigation into this matter as well as awaiting a full accounting from our external security service provider for what happened and appropriate action will be taken.”
“The law must always take its course and the humiliation suffered by the three women was unacceptable. We are a very committed corporate citizen of Ghana and there is absolutely no way we would ever condone the treatment of anyone like this. Irrespective of the fact that the women were shoplifting, we offer our sincere apologies that they were treated in this way by our service provider,” said Mr Bird.
font color=”red”>With that said, and with Mr Price clearing its stance, I hope the branch manager is held legally accountable and makes a public dennounciation of her humiliation request. Not for humiliating the girls, but for humiliation Ghana as a whole. I also hope the Accra Mall security that reinforced her to give the girls no other option are put on the line for supporting this rubbish.
