Tesla staff under shadow of suspicion after Musk catches a saboteur

Tesla has too many problems to sort out already and the last thing it needs right now is a saboteur. But looks like that’s the case. CEO Elon Musk on Sunday sent out a company-wide email, in which he claims to have identified an employee who attempted to exploit the company.

According to CNBC, Musk — apparently not hiding his dismay — cautioned his employees after identifying a high-rank employee, who handed over the company’s valuable data to an unidentified third party. The saboteur — who is said to be in custody and has accepted responsibility for his wrongdoing — altered the code of the company’s internal products, Musk says in his letter.

Musk also alleges that he believes Wall Street short-sellers, oil & gas companies, and gas/diesel car companies could be involved. He is currently investigating whether the saboteur, who allegedly indulged in wrongdoing after being denied a promotion, is alone or whether there are other Tesla employees involved.

The next day, Musk again rolled out an email informing employees that the company had to halt the body production line after a fire broke out at the factory. He expressed his suspicion over this incident.

This is not the first time that Musk doubts a sabotage at his company. Back in 2016, when his favorite SpaceX rocket exploded, Musk, along with the investigators, believed that the operation was compromised by someone.

In his email, Musk urged his employees to stay extremely attentive over the next few weeks, as the company is looking to ramp-up the production of its Model 3. Musk has a set a target of 5,000 cars per week.
