Late on Friday afternoon, news broke that Lotus CEO Dany Bahar (pictured right) had been suspended, with Lotus confirming earlier rumours but stopping short of saying exactly why. It's the latest in a string of bizarre and/or controversial things to come out of Lotus recently.

But according to a report in The Telegraph, expenses are at the centre of Mr Bahar's suspension. Lotus owner DRB-Hicom hasn't confirmed this, but has said Mr Bahar has had his laptop and mobile phone confiscated.
