Ex-abattoir boss banned from being a director.
A DIRECTOR of the firm which ran the controversial Boosbeck abattoir has been banned for seven years for failing to keep proper books and records.
Meat wholesaler Nahim Mohammed Banaras has been disqualified, from June 12, from acting as a company director or from managing, or in any way controlling, a limited company until 2024.
Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Middlesbrough born Greg Clark, accepted the seven-year disqualification after hearing how North East Meats Limited (NEM), which traded from the Boosbeck abattoir site, went into liquidation on August 20, 2015 owing PS1,128,393.
Nahim Banaras An Insolvency Service investigation found that from at least March 12, 2014, Mr Banaras "failed to maintain, preserve and deliver up records that were adequate to explain the financial position of NEM."
Explaining 43-year-old Mr Banaras' directorship ban, The Insolvency Service said that without complete records, it was impossible to "determine the legitimacy of at least PS195,476 of credit stated to have been granted to a connected company for the destruction of purchased livestock."
Also, the service added, NEM's books and records had no evidence to verify the destruction of at least 2,827 animals.
Mr Banaras did not dispute the matter of unfitness in the disqualification undertaking.
