The former owner of BHS, Dominic Chappell, has been found guilty of failing to hand over information to The Pensions Regulator.
Chappell, who bought the ailing retailer from Arcadia boss Sir Philip Green for £1 in 2015, was charged with refusing to respond to three section 72 notices demanding he provide documents and information relating to the purchase of BHS.
He was found guilty of all three counts yesterday at Brighton Magistrates Court and now faces an unlimited fine for failing to comply.
Nicola Parish, The Pensions Regulator’s (TPR) executive director of frontline regulation, said: “We are satisfied with the outcome of this case, the latest in a series of successful prosecutions by TPR for offences of this kind.
“Dominic Chappell failed to provide us with information we had requested in connection with our investigation into the sale and ultimate collapse of BHS, despite numerous requests.”
