The Assembly of First Nations says it has voted to suspend National Chief RoseAnne Archibald.
AFN’s executive committee and board of directors said in a statement Friday that his suspension is effective immediately pending the outcome of investigations into four complaints against him.
It says Archibald’s suspension was prompted by public statements he made on Thursday that breached his obligations to the AFN and are contrary to his oath of office, the AFN’s code of conduct and its Whistleblower Policy.
The AFN says Archibald has been ordered not to discuss the investigation publicly and is banned from attending its annual general meeting and assembly of chiefs meeting next month.
In a statement on Thursday, Archibald said she was being “undermined, discredited and attacked” for trying to clean up corruption in the AFN.
In his statement, Archibald called for a forensic audit and independent investigation into the AFN’s conduct over the past eight years.
