Audit committe boss sacked after 'naked' complaints

Head of mining company's audit committee sacked after midnight streak

Donald Kinsella, the deputy chairman and audit committee head of Irish mining
business Kenmare
Resources
, was sacked from the company’s audit committee after
walking around naked following a boozy dinner at an African mining site.

Kinsella, 64, was dropped following a complaint from Kenmare’s company
secretary and financial comptroller Deirdre Corcoran,
the FT
reports.

Speaking to an internal inquiry following the meal, held to mark the mine’s
formal opening in May, Corcoran said that on three occasions Kinsella appeared
naked at her door before he was eventually escorted to his room by Michael
Carvill, Kenmare’s MD.

Kinsella told the FT that he had been sleepwalking and said the
incident had been seized upon to reduce his standing within the company.
Kinsella worked for Kenmare for 20 years.
