Royston King fired by local gov’t commission

Town Clerk Royston King has been fired by the Local Government Commission for alleged gross misconduct.

King who appeared before the Local Government Commission (LGC) on January 12 to offer a defence to findings against him, including gross misconduct and abuse of office, stemming from the recent Commission of Inquiry (CoI) into the operations of City Hall was according to sources served notice of his dismissal yesterday.

As part of his recommendations, retired Justice Cecil Kennard, who conducted the inquiry at the behest of the LGC, suggested that King “be brought before a disciplinary tribunal… as …he acted outside the scope and intent of the law on several occasions.” Stabroek News approached King both before and after his appearance but he declined to comment “at this time.”
