Carleschi was the 12th candidate on the SNP's list for the forthcoming vote for MSPs at Holyrood.
“I will be a dedicated, energetic and enthusiastic candidate who will fight the issues that matter in Holyrood," he tweeted in September.
The SNP told the Daily Record that Carleschi has "stepped aside from all SNP positions until the matter is resolved".
i100 has contacted the SNP and Steven Carleschi for further comment.
