Tribunal's final assessment
Code 12 para 4.8.2g - Prohibition all PRS
Breaches raised

The Tribunal was asked to consider a prohibition against Mr Roger Cheung pursuant to paragraph 4.8.2(g) of the 12th Edition of the PhonepayPlus Code of Practice (the “Code”).

The case related to an adjudication against the Level 2 provider (the “Level 2 provider”) Clarium Telecom Limited  (16 October 2014, case reference: 50967), which concerned a breach of the sanctions imposed by an earlier Tribunal (26 June 2014, case reference 29242) and non-payment of the associated administrative charges. The case on 26 June 2014 concerned a virtual chat service (the “Service”). 

On 16 October 2014, the Tribunal instructed the Executive to initiate the process which may lead to the prohibition of Mr Roger Cheung, (an associated individual) pursuant to paragraph 4.8.2(g) of the Code. 

The Tribunal concluded that Mr Cheung was an associated individual and had been knowingly involved in a series of serious and very serious breaches of the Code. 

Taking into account all the circumstances, the Tribunal prohibited Mr Cheung from providing, or having any involvement in, any premium rate service for a period of three years from the date of publication of this decision.
