Official Council Repsonse regarding calls for Lutfur Ali Investigation | May 22, 2010


Just recieved an email from a colleague. Who as a news researcher contacted the Council Press Office, and talked to one of the communications officers, regarding Mr Ali. The conversation they tell me was a simple one, simply asking “Is there an official council investigation into Mr Ali, especially since the new revelations have been produced by the National College?”

In the interests of full disclosure, and to be fair to everyone waiting with bated breath, here, now, finally is the official council response to this question;

“Lutfur Ali started his employment at Tower Hamlets Council on 1 September 2008 and resigned on 8th March 2010. We cannot discuss individual cases. The Council has clear performance standards and also a code of conduct which forms part of the employment contract for all employees.”

My own council sources though, stand by their claim that there is in fact no actual investigation into Mr Ali, never has been, and probably never will be.

I suppose now I’m going to have to figure out how to get a copy of the “clear perfomance standards and also the code of conduct which forms part of the employment contract for all employees.” I smell another FOI request coming on…..
