7 November 2018
The CAN International Board has received a number of serious complaints over the past few days. The Board takes these complaints extremely seriously and will commission an independent workplace investigation.
To facilitate the smooth execution of the investigation and to protect the confidentiality of all parties concerned, the Board has decided to put CAN’s Executive Director Wael Hmaidan on a period of leave, with effect from today, 7 November, 2018. During this time, Dr. Stephan Singer will be the focal point for leading operations within the CAN International Secretariat to ensure operations continue uninterrupted.
CAN will make no further comment publicly while this investigation is underway.
