Dismissal, etc

31. The

Governor may in the case of misconduct, neglect of duty, inefficiency or of conduct which appear to the Governor to be prejudicial to the interests of education, religion, good government or social order in the Δημοκρατία, order the dismissal, withholding of salary or suspension of any teacher from employment as a teacher for such period as may seem just and may revoke any such order:

Provided that in every such case where the teacher has not been convicted on a criminal charge the grounds of intended dismissal, withholding of salary or suspension are stated in writing and communicated to the teacher in order that he may have full opportunity of exculpating himself, and that the matter is investigated by the Governor with the aid of the Director.
