Gwent's Police and Crime Commissioner, Ian Johnston, will be questioned by the Welsh Affairs Select Committee today. A one-off session is being held with all four Welsh PCCs, but the spotlight is likely to fall Mr Johnston following revelations over the departure of Chief Constable, Carmel Napier.
Carmel Napier suddenly left her post as Gwent's Chief Constable last month. Later it emerged that Ian Johnston had suggested she should retire or face being removed from her post.
Giving evidence to the Home Affairs Committee last week, the ex-Chief Constable said that Ian Johnston was 'bullying and menacing' when he told her she should retire or be sacked. Mr Johnston defended his decision, saying it was clear she was "hostile" to his role as Gwent's PCC.
It later emerged that the taxpayer footed the bill of £16,000 in legal fees over the removal of the Chief Constable.
