Pop Quiz - Who Resigned Today?

Fri Mar 14, 2003 12:58 am

Seems like no-one has picked up on the fact that the CEO of a major European airline resigned today.

A bag of chocolate buttons to the first person who works it out...

It seems that he had to resign due to an affair that might be called corruption. Seven board members might have received 700 000 euros from SAir Group for fictitious works in 2001 according to polish and swiss press.

Full marks to Groholsky for guessing...

...but he forfeits the bag of chocolate buttons for copying the spelling mistake from the incompetent newswire. LOT's CEO is (or was) Mr Litwinski. Big grin

Oh well, guess I didn't read that carefully! LOL

I should've said IF it weren't for the fact that a European carrier was mentioned, I would've hazarded a guess that it would be Uncle Milty from AC.
