John Grindal, the chief executive officer of the Maldives Pension Administration Office, has been sacked for breaching the organization’s code of conduct.
According to a medial official from the Pension Office, Grindal, who was appointed to the role late last year, was removed on Tuesday for violating the office’s code of conduct.
The Pension Office denied claims that the decision was motivated by sexual harassment allegations, but no other details were offered.
In addition, the Pension Office said that two board members had resigned, although no reason was given.
Several local media sites claimed in September that Grindal had been fired as a result of sexual harassment accusations. The Pension Office, on the other hand, refuted the allegations, claiming that no sexual harassment complaints had been filed against him.
Grindal, a British national with over 25 years of experience in the insurance and pension industries, was appointed CEO of Pension Office in December 2020.
