A statement released on their website read: ‘The Guernsey Party has concluded an internal code of conduct investigation into recent public allegations of misconduct by Deputy Le Tissier.

‘Although Deputy Le Tissier’s activities were personal and did not involve or represent the Party, the Committee has concluded that his conduct fell below the standard expected by The Guernsey Party and brought the Party into disrepute.

‘Deputy Le Tissier has been suspended from the Party for six months with immediate effect. Deputy Le Tissier has made a public apology and submitted himself for review by the States’ Code of Conduct Panel.

‘He has also volunteered to undertake social media use training.’

The investigation came about after allegations were made that Deputy Le Tissier had used a pseudonym to troll former politicians and members of the public on social media.

Official code of conduct complaints have also been lodged against Deputy Le Tissier with the secretary to the States Members’ Conduct Panel confirming on Friday afternoon that it had received two complaints and that Deputy Le Tissier had been informed.
