Food and Grocery delivery app Wishbox has issued a statement regarding the incident where one of its delivery partners was assaulted. 

The company said that it will support the partner for legal measures and thanked the Ministry of Interior for swift action as MoI had arrested the perpetrator after the video went viral on social media. 

Wishbox said that “the incident was a situation of traffic accident. We thank Ministry of Interior for taking swift actions. Wishbox shall support delivery partner via respective channels for legal measures as long as the delivery partner was abiding by the laws and regulations of the State of Qatar.”

The company has vowed to consider the partner for “higher positions” as appreciation for his conduct during the assault.

“We take this opportunity to sincerely thank and appreciate the delivery partner in the video for maintaining utmost calmness and for showing patience in handling the situation. Any adverse reaction by the partner would have set bad example for the community as well as Wishbox. The delivery partner will be considered for higher positions to spread morality and disciplines among other delivery partners,” they added.

“During COVID Crisis, delivery partners played a crucial role supporting the community, serving for sick and people under Home Quarantines. At times, we react to late deliveries while the actual reason of the delayed delivery could be due to busy kitchen of the restaurant, traffic Jam on peak hours, diversion due to road constructions, parking availability, etc...,” the company concluded.
