Corruption Row Council Suspend Staff

Three council workers have been suspended from duty after an internal audit into corruption allegations.

North Lanarkshire Council said it had taken the action against three members of staff from its corporate property and procurement department while a disciplinary investigation takes place.

The local authority launched the probe in April after detailed allegations were made in a letter to council leader Jim Logue.

The council's internal audit team carried out the investigation, with chief executive Paul Jukes stating he had received an ``extensive report'' on Friday September 30.

Mr Jukes stated: "Having considered the report, I have taken the decision to suspend three members of staff from corporate property and procurement on full pay to allow for a disciplinary investigation to take place.

"The council will have no further comment to make while this disciplinary investigation is carried out.''
