This outcome was reached by SRA decision.
Mr Roger Allanson's practising certificate for 2017/2018 is subject to the following conditions:
With effect from three months of the date of this decision, Mr Allanson may not act as a manager or owner of any authorised body.
With effect from three months of the date of this decision, Mr Allanson may not act as a compliance officer for legal practice (COLP) or compliance officer for finance and administration (COFA) for any authorised body.
With effect from three months of the date of this decision, Mr Allanson does not hold, receive, or have access to the client money, or act as a signatory to any client account, or have the power to authorise electronic transfers from any client or office account.
Any defined terms used in the conditions are contained in the SRA Handbook Glossary 2012.
The SRA publishes regulatory decisions when it considers it to be in the public interest. I consider, in accordance with the SRA’s guidance on publishing regulatory and disciplinary decisions, to be transparent and to maintain public confidence in the regulatory system, that it is necessary to publish these conditions. I further consider that none of the factors that would make publication inappropriate applies in this case.
The above conditions are considered to be necessary in the public interest and reasonable and proportionate having regard to the purposes set out in Regulation 7 of the SRA Practising Regulations 2011 and the regulatory objectives and principles governing regulatory activities as contained in section 28 of the Legal Services Act 2007.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Probably relating to what he's consequently been fined for - but there is also this which is in respect of Allanson but for a separate incident -[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
It's a complicated read but someone summarised it on Wanderes Ways -
Debt management firm that has shit systems and controls in place and is poor at reconciling money.
The firm took money off vulnerable folk in debt and only 51% was used to pay off their actual debt.
Sound like nice folk. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The ST issued this just two days later the links were made on ww -
The Trust has seen recent comments on social media about a coopted member of the Board.
We are looking into the situation and will take whatever steps are necessary once we have established the facts. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
and within two weeks announced an 'all clear' over the matter -
Following our statement of 16 January ’19 regarding some social media comments about a co-opted board member, the BWFCST board have looked at the facts in full detail and have unanimously decided that no further action is required. This now concludes the matter. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Iles of course - and even after being contacted directly several times on twitter, as yet to make any comment - let alone write an article on it - even though he's reported on Allanson every time he has been in the news recently, expressing his/the ST's views on the club ownership!
He also hasn't made any comment about Holdsworth leaving Palermo and threatening court action (sound familiar anyone?) even though he wrote a glowing article about him going there just a few weeks back.
Amazing how he can bury the news when it suits his agenda!
