You should be able to write a pre-commit hook that does what your
manager wants, something like this:

if (the user is not one of those allowed to delete) {
     get a list of things modified in the transaction
     if (any of them is a delete) {
         echo "You're not allowed to delete" 1>&2
         exit 1
exit 0
