Sex and the City: More suits sacked for Net porn

Merrill Lynch kicks out 15 staff

Top city stockbroker Merrill Lynch has sacked 15 London staff for allegedly sending pornographic emails.

Those kicked out today are believed to include share dealers at the Victoria office who downloaded the material from the Net on the company's system, then sent the sleaze around the office.

"As per Merrill Lynch policy, the firm will not tolerate any abuse of its business e-mail system, particularly when extremely offensive material is involved," a representative said, London's Evening Standard reported.

"When the abuse was discovered, after proper investigations had taken place, the individuals concerned were dismissed."

Just last week Deutschebank in London suspended ten of its workers for downloading porn. ®
