Ged Fitzgerald resigns

  • Comment

The chief executive of Liverpool City Council has resigned, LGC understands.

Ged Fitzgerald, who was arrested last May on suspicion of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice and witness intimidation in relation to a long-running fraud probe, was suspended from his role by the council in September.

LGC reported last month how Mr Fitzgerald was reportedly called to a meeting of the authority’s appointments and disciplinary panel amid expectations that his departure from the authority would soon be announced.

Mr Fitzgerald remains on bail in relation to the police investigation into Liverpool and Lancashire CC’s joint venture with BT, Liverpool Direct and One Connect respectively. Both companies are now defunct.

Also arrested last year were Lancashire CC leader Geoff Driver (Con), the county’s former chief executive Phil Halsall and the ex-chief of Liverpool Direct and Lancashire joint venture One Direct, David McElhinney.

All four men are due to answer bail on 22 May.
