Member’s name: NAME NOT DISCLOSED
Date of Hearing: 9 June 2011
Division: Western Australia
Tribunal: Disciplinary Tribunal
On 9 June 2011 the Disciplinary Tribunal found a Member breached Article 39(a)(ii)E of the Constitution in that the Member became "Insolvent”.
The Tribunal accepted the Members resignation effective that day for the period of the bankruptcy. In doing so, the Tribunal took into account the fact that the Member had self disclosed the bankruptcy to CPA Australia at the earliest period on more than one occasion, the bankruptcy was of a personal nature and unrelated to the Member's practice.
In the circumstances, CPA Australia waived its costs.
The Tribunal also ordered that should the Member apply for readmission at the expiration of the bankruptcy period, the Member must first provide proof to CPA Australia that in the prior 12 months the requisite number of structured CPD hours have been undertaken.
The Tribunal also took into account "exceptional circumstances”, including that damage may result to a third party (namely, the Member’s employer) and ordered that the Members name not be disclosed.
