Scaffidi decision

PERTH lord mayor Lisa Scaffidi has been suspended for seven months over her travel and gift declaration scandal.

SAT originally found her to have committed 45 breaches by not properly declaring gifts and travel contributions, but she appealed and the supreme court knocked out 26.

Her original punishment of 18 months disqualification was tossed out under appeal and she’ll now serve the seven month suspension starting Friday.

But she’s already suspended anyway as the state government inquiry into her council drags on, and the current punishment will be served concurrently.
