Further to yesterday's story about an investigation into the conduct of senior officers at Cheshire East, we have received a press release from the council announcing that the Chief Executive, Mike Suarez, has been suspended.
Concerns about officer conduct were considered at a meeting of the investigation and disciplinary committee on April 10th and 11th.
A decision was taken to suspend the chief executive of Cheshire East Council while an independent investigation is undertaken.
The chair of the investigation and disciplinary committee, said:
"We would stress that suspension is a neutral act taken in the interests of both the council and chief executive.
"It is important that this investigation is undertaken objectively and therefore it would be inappropriate to make any further comment at this stage."
