Report: Ex-CEO of Lotus, Dany Bahar suing Lotus for $10.6 million

Lotus’s ex-CEO Dany Bahar has recently just filed a lawsuit against the British sports car brand, claiming that Lotus and its Malaysian parent, DRB-Hicom Bhd. was wrongful in their dismissal. Bahar is specifically suing Lotus for 6.7 million pounds, or $10.6 million for an alleged unlawful early termination of his employment.

“Dany Bahar was dismissed after an investigation into his stewardship of Lotus,” DRB said in a filing with a vague description. “We believe we have acted properly at all times.”

Bahar was fired from Lotus after a complaint was issued against him from DRB, expressing unspecified concerns over his conduct.

According to Bloomberg, Lotus and DRB will file counter-claims against him in an announcement.
