Statement from the Chief Minister:
"The independent Commissioner for Standards has now cleared Senator Ozouf of having breached the Ministerial Code. He found that the Senator was an extremely busy individual, who made a genuine mistake with the administration of some expenses.
"The Commissioner noted that the public service is fortunate to have the participation of busy and committed people such as Senator Ozouf.
“A further analysis of Senator’s Ozouf’s expenses has been undertaken, as outlined in the FOI response provided in June 2017. This FOI data has now been reissued in a corrected form to take account of the reclassification of a number of items as legitimate business expenses.
“Now that Commissioner for Standards has finished his work, I will be implementing a new framework to support Ministers in the processing of their expenses."
