Job losses after recycling charity faces investigation
A recycling charity which received millions of pounds of public money said it is making its staff redundant after a regulator launched an investigation.
It follows allegations of a potential conflict of interest involving the chief executive of Cardiff-based charity Cylch, Mal Williams.
Mr Williams also chaired a company called Plastics Sorting Ltd.
The Charity Commission has opened an investigation following a nine-month audit by the Welsh government.
According to a statement on Cylch's website, a number of allegations about the charity were made to the Welsh government and to the charity commission last year.
The Welsh government has given Cylch more than £3m since the start of the last decade.
Mr Williams said no one from Cylch would comment until the commission's investigation was completed.
The Welsh government said: "We are aware of today's announcement by Cylch and that the Charity Commission has opened a Section 46 inquiry into Cylch. It would not be appropriate for us to comment further on these developments until the Charity Commission's inquiry has concluded."
