IDB chief sacked for affair with employee

Claver-Carone has denied the allegations and pointed to serious flaws in the investigation.

The board of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) has approved the dismissal of its president, Mauricio Claver-Caron, over allegations that he had an affair with a subordinate, a person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press.

Board members had until Tuesday to vote electronically on whether to fire Claver-Caron, but enough votes had been cast by Monday afternoon to remove the first American to lead the bank, the person said.

An investigation at the bank’s board’s request determined that Claver-Carron violated ethics rules by increasing the salary of her chief of staff, with whom she had been romantically involved since at least 2019 when they both worked in the White House. According to a copy of the report obtained by AP.

Claver-Caron has denied the relationship and said the investigation was seriously flawed.

Last week, the bank’s board of directors voted unanimously to urge the board to fire Claver-Caron.

Under banking rules, Claver-Caron will be replaced by Executive Vice President Reina Mejia, a Honduran national who spent most of her career at Citibank in Central America.
