Belfast taxi driver sacked over firearm threats in dashcam video

A driver for Belfast-based taxi agency FonaCab has been dismissed following a video that surfaced on social media, displaying him wielding what seems to be a firearm and threatening passengers. The Police Service of Northern Ireland has launched an investigation into the incident.
Zany , seemingly recorded by a dashcam contained in the taxi, shows the driver pointing the suspected weapon at a person within the entrance passenger seat and hitting him within the face with it. FonaCab informed BBC News NI that it turned aware of the footage on May 31 at around 11pm BST. The company promptly recognized the driving force, who was then interviewed and had his employment terminated.
A spokesperson for FonaCab stated that the company had been in contact with the Driver and Vehicle Agency (DVA) Northern Ireland and the police, and any further action could be determined by these authorities. The taxi agency completed its investigation and took motion earlier than the video was launched on social media.
FonaCab emphasised that its drivers endure the identical training and vetting as all taxi drivers in Northern Ireland, and they are expected to uphold high standards. The company does not tolerate incidents the place security is compromised or its status is tarnished..
