Councillor Accused of Assault

It may be that Hassan Ahmed's climb up the greasy pole is about to come to an end. He is currently the portfolio holder for Employment and skills and prior to that he was an executive assistant to Graham Chapman.

The Beeb is reporting that he has been accused of assault and sexual assault. The offence is said to have occurred on 29 July.

It may not be a surprise to you to learn that Cllr Ahmed 'vehemently denies' the allegations.

He was recently in hot water for omitting some of his business interests from the 'Register of Members' Interests.'

Grab your popcorn, this looks like one to watch.

Update 1pm; 'Post' now reporting that Ahmed has stepped down from Portfolio holder position while case ongoing. The person he attacked is said to be a 47 year old teacher.

Update 5/11; Turns out he was actually arrested in July as well but only stood down when the 'Post' blew the gaff. See article here.

A portentous post on my blog last night about honour and accountability.

Like you, I'll be watching this one very closely.
