Amjid Wazir did not break Stoke-on-Trent City Council's code of conduct
LABOUR councillor Amjid Wazir has been cleared of breaching a council's code of conduct.
Mr Wazir, who represents Hanley Park and Shelton, was accused of failing to declare an interest before a vote to reinstate the taxi licence of Azan Ahmed.
Mr Ahmed was convicted of assaulting fellow driver Mohammed Bashir.
But Stoke-on-Trent City Council's standards committee agreed that no breach had occurred after Mr Wazir admitted phoning a friend of Bashir's before the court case in an attempt to broker a resolution.

Councillor Majid Khan was cleared of a similar offence last month.
