Dominic Chappell, the former owner of BHS, has denied failing to hand over information to the Pensions Regulator, The Telegraph has reported.
The newspaper said Chappell had been summoned to appear after the regulator accused him of neglecting or refusing to provide information and documents. However, Chappell claimed he had not seen the summons because he was “offshore” on a boat, without internet access.
Chappell appeared at Brighton Magistrates Court yesterday to respond to the accusation, and asked the regulator to adjourn the case because of is inability to read the documentation, The Telegraph said
The Pensions Regulator is currently investigating Chappell over the collapse of BHS last year.
