The council is aware of personal comments made by one of its former councillors in a recent newspaper article regarding the circumstances surrounding the former councillor’s disqualification from holding office as a councillor with Llanelli Rural Council.
The council rejects the comments made by the former councillor and categorically denies any involvement in the disqualification process.
For the avoidance of doubt no decision was taken by the council to disqualify the former councillor because the disqualification process is governed and determined by the law, namely Section 85 of the Local Government Act 1972. The council will not be making any further comment on the matter.
