Notice of Decision of Disciplinary Committee Notice is hereby given by the Disciplinary Committee of the New Zealand Society of Accountants, that at a conjoint hearing held on the 15th day of August 1994, the committee heard charges against Colin Hugh Pratt of Balclutha, that he had: A. Been guilty of grave impropriety in a professional respect. B. Been guilty of defaults discreditable to an accountant. C. Conducted himself in such a manner as to render the exercise of the powers of the disciplinary committee expedient in the interests of the public or of the society. In that he had failed to respond to continued requests for information regarding a complaint concerning professional services. Colin Hugh Pratt did not appear before the disciplinary committee, therefore a plea of not guilty was taken. The disciplinary committee found the charges proved based on evidence that was heard and received at the hearing on the 15th day of August 1994. Pursuant to section 24 (3) (d) of the New Zealand Society of Accountants Act 1958, the disciplinary committee ordered that Colin Hugh Pratt be censured. Colin Hugh Pratt was ordered to pay to the society the sum of $2,015.22 (incl. G.S.T.) in respect of costs and expenses of and incidental to the inquiry by the disciplinary committee and the investigation by the investigation committee. The disciplinary committee ordered that its decision be published in the Chartered Accountant's Journal of New Zealand, the New Zealand Gazette, and Otago Daily Times newspaper with mention of the member's name and locality. Dated this 14th day of September 1994.
