Gerald James launches appeal against JDS decision

The former chairman of Astra Holdings, Gerald James, is this morning due to launch an appeal against a Joint Disciplinary Scheme decision to exclude him from the accountancy profession.

In December, the JDS found James guilty of three offences relating to the controversial arms to Iraq affair.

The three counts were falling below the standard expected of an English ICA member by creating a false invoice for £240,000 in March 1986 to cover a shortfall in forecast pre-tax profits, failing to co-operate with DTI inspectors and failing to co-operate with the executive counsel of the JDS.

In a judgement the JDS ordered James excluded from the profession and imposed costs of £200,000.

The JDS appeal tribunal will take place at Hulton House on Fleet Street, London.
