Under the statutes of Christ Church, where a complaint is referred to a Tribunal, the Senior ex-Censor may choose to suspend the Dean from his or her duties without loss of salary.</p><p>The statutes of Christ Church Oxford may be read here: <a href="https://emea01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.chch.ox.ac.uk%2Fsites%2Fdefault%2Ffiles%2FStatutesofChristChurchOxford.27.4.16.pdf&amp;data=02%7C01%7Csimon.stanley%40churchofengland.org%7Cc460da4ba1d44ed1bf2108d6591c835f%7C95e2463b3ab047b49ac1587c77ee84f0%7C0%7C0%7C636794376331365011&amp;sdata=fnFtCHdfidpqBVelc9bCx0%2FbOMF2v%2BM5V93H0gq0b9s%3D&amp;reserved=0" target="_blank">https://www.chch.ox.ac.uk/sites/default/files/StatutesofChristChurchOxford.27.4.16.pdf</a></p> more like this
