David Cameron quits Afiniti role after founder accused of sexual assault
The Guardian says David Cameron has quit his role at the software company Afiniti after a 23-year-old former employee accused the firm’s multimillionaire founder of sexual assault.
The former UK prime minister announced on Wednesday that he was immediately standing down from his position as Afiniti’s advisory chair after Tatiana Spottiswoode detailed a string of allegations against the chief executive, Zia Chishti, to members of Congress in the US on Tuesday.
Cameron, whose post political career was previously tarnished by his role at the collapsed bank Greensill, said he had “absolutely no knowledge” of the allegations against Chishti before the hearing and he had “resigned as chairman of the company’s advisory board with immediate effect”.
