In a statement released on Friday, Mr Sargeant said: 'I met with the First Minister today and he informed me allegations had been made about my personal conduct, which was shocking and distressing to me.'The details of the allegations have yet to be disclosed to me.
I have written to the General Secretary of Welsh Labour requesting an urgent independent investigation into these allegations in order to allow me to clear my name.'Given the nature of the allegations, I agreed with the First Minister that it was right that I stand aside from cabinet.'I look forward to returning to Government once my name has been cleared.
Former minister Carl Sargeant, 48, was found dead at home in Connah's Quay, North Wales, at 11.30am today.
Mr Sargeant was sacked by Carwyn Jones on Friday after three women contacted the First Minister's office and made allegations of sexual misconduct.
A keen football fan, Mr Sargeant was president of FC Nomads of Connah's Quay, the town where he lived all his life and where he was found dead.
Father-of-two Mr Sargeant returned from his family US break to be called into the office of the Labour First Minister Carwyn Jones, who sacked him.
