Robert Gordon University probes conflict of interest claim
Aberdeen's Robert Gordon University has said said it will "robustly" investigate claims of a possible conflict of interest over the appointment of a new vice-principal.
It is understood the inquiry will look at business interests shared by Gordon McConnell and Prof Ferdinand von Prondzynski, RGU's principal.
Mr McConnell is vice-principal for commercial and regional innovation.
RGU said it was following its "public interest review policy procedure".
The university said it was not in a position to comment further at this stage.
