Top immigration official suspended

Chief Immigration Officer Linda Evans has been suspended pending an investigation into allegations of misconduct, the Ministry of Home Affairs confirmed Tuesday.

According to a statement released by the ministry, Ms. Evans has been placed on required leave with immediate effect, following the receipt of information by the ministry relating to “a number of allegations of misconduct by the CIO, which require a full investigation.”

Placing Ms. Evans on required leave, with pay, was determined to be appropriate “in the circumstances, to allow the allegations to be investigated quickly and thoroughly,” the ministry said.
