Carl Sargeant wasn't dealt with fairly, Labour AM Jenny Rathbone says

Labour assembly member Jenny Rathbone has said sacked minister Carl Sargeant should have been told what the allegations against him were so he could defend himself.

The Alyn and Deeside AM was found dead after being dismissed as communities secretary last week and suspended by Welsh Labour pending an inquiry into allegations of his personal conduct towards a number of women.

Mr Sargeant had vowed to clear his name, but was found dead at his Flintshire home on Tuesday.

Ms Rathbone, AM for Cardiff Central, said he had not been "dealt with fairly in the most basic sense".

But Labour's shadow equalities minister Dawn Butler said she was "satisfied the appropriate process was followed".
