Group Lotus sacks chief executive Dany Bahar

  • Carmaker Lotus has dismissed its chief executive with immediate effect.

    The Group Lotus board fired Dany Bahar following an investigation into a complaint against him by Malaysian parent company DRB-Hicom Berhad.

    Bahar was suspended two weeks ago and has been replaced by Aslam Farikullah, a DRB-Hicom Berhad senior executive.

    Bahar joined Lotus in September 2009 and unveiled four new cars at the Paris motor show in October last year.
