Secretary of State for Trade and Industry v Gee & Anor - directors' disqualification orders made - High Court 27.2.07

The DTI applied for an order under the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986 to disqualify Mr David Gee and Mr Kevin Smedley from acting as directors. This arose from their defrauding a finance company (GE Commercial Finance Ltd) of several million pounds, failing to make VAT returns and wilful and deliberate failure to pay PAYE payments, NICs and VAT.
