Following the resignation of it's chief executive, Cheshire East Council has confirmed that the disciplinary hearing to consider allegations in relation to Mr Suarez will not proceed.
Councillor Margaret Simon, acting chair of the cross-party investigation and disciplinary committee (IDC) of Cheshire East Council, confirmed that the two-day disciplinary hearing, which was due to commence today, was to consider allegations in relation to Mr Suarez.
Cllr Simon said: "It is confirmed that Mr Suarez resigned on 9 July 2018 with immediate effect and without notice. The resignation was accepted by Kath O' Dwyer, acting chief executive on 10 July. Mr Suarez will receive his contractual and statutory entitlement to outstanding holiday pay and salary to 9 July 2018.
"The IDC reconvened at Macclesfield Town Hall at 10.30am today. However, as the IDC can only deal with matters in relation to existing statutory officers of the council, there is no need to proceed with the disciplinary hearing, due to the resignation of Mr Suarez."
