Tribunal's final assessment
4.8.3 (g) Sanctions
Breaches raised

This case was brought against the named individual under paragraph 4.8.6 of the Code of Practice.  The Tribunal was asked to consider imposing a prohibition against Mr Eliad Shenar pursuant to paragraph 4.8.3(g) of the 14th edition of the Phone-paid Services Authority (“PSA”) Code of Practice (the “Code”).  

The case related to two previous adjudications against the Level 2 provider, Halak Online Limited, one dated 07 June 2018 (case reference: 137924) that involved an Information, Connection and Signposting Service (ICSS) and one dated 23 January 2019 (case reference: 157189). The decision of the Tribunal on 23 January 2019 related to a failure to comply with the financial sanctions and administrative charges imposed by the Tribunal on 07 June 2018. On 23 January 2019, the Tribunal recommended that the Executive consider initiating the process which may lead to the prohibition of Mr Shenar pursuant to paragraph 4.8.3(g) of the Code. 

The Tribunal decided to prohibit Mr Shenar from providing, or having any involvement in, any premium rate service in the UK for a period of 5 years from the date of publication of this decision. The Tribunal considered that this was a proportionate sanction, having considered all the facts of the case and the nature of the series of eight breaches of the Code that had been upheld by the earlier Tribunals.
