Linda Walker white-washes Cllr Sohail Munawar

Surprising verdict before council investigation starts

Report: Paul Janik

Contract solicitor at Slough Council, Linda Walker, Harrow Council's business development manager, has white-washed Cllr Sohail Munawar.

Despite Slough Council's own investigations into Cllr Munawar have not started, Mrs Walker has pronouncing Cllr Munawar innocent.

Sources say Mrs Walker has swallowed Cllr Munawar's contradictory explanation that a computer virus pressed the buttons on his mobile phone and forwarded the porn to a vast amount of people using WhatsApp.

Cllr Munawar's long-time loyal friend Cllr Madhuri Bedi, told the Slough Express the porn was not really porn but a doctor removing a cucumber from someone's anus.

Mr Munawar told the Slough Observer it was definitely porn. Mrs Walker said it was "obscene video". A woman councillor described it as disgusting pornography, but Mrs Bedi, the council's children's services executive councillor, says she watched it and it was not porn.

Mrs Walker's decision to exonerate Mr Munawar, before the council's formal investigation has started, is likely to provoke fury, derision and disbelief within the council and in the general community.
