Allegations of nepotism and other ethical lapses in the Navajo Nation presidency were referred to the tribe's ethics office, The Gallup Independent reported.

The Navajo Nation Government Services Committee planned a series of public hearings to address charges that President Joe Shirley Jr. and Vice President Frank Dayish Jr. hired close relatives. But after a closed-door session on Monday, the issue was referred to the Ethics-Rules Office, which can keep the information secret.
