Former Brixton chief executive Tim Wheeler is due to give evidence today at an industrial tribunal over claims that he was unfairly dismissed, after a year of silence.

The second part of Wheeler’s tribunal will start today at the London Central Employment Tribunal, following a January hearing in which Wheeler was castigated by former colleagues giving evidence.

It will see Wheeler deliver a 38-page witness statement, giving the case against his dismissal and calling for a revision to his pension settlement.

In January, evidence was heard from chairwoman Lady Louise Patten, deputy chief executive and finance director, Steve Owen, and director Steve Lee over what was at the heart of a breakdown in relations with the board when Wheeler was dismissed this time last year.

Their criticisms related to his alleged hampering of a rescue rights issue, an inability to work with the board, and focus on extracting up to £1.88m from the company.

This week, the short-lived successor of Wheeler as CEO, Peter Dawson, will give evidence alongside his predecessor.
