Former liquidator Geoffrey Smith has been convicted on six charges, including stealing $130,000 from two companies to which he had been appointed liquidator. Mr Smith was also convicted of perjury in connection with the same liquidations. In our December 2018 newsletter we reported on the charges brought against Smith. He represented himself at the trial before Judge Collins. Smith is reported already to be serving a prison sentence on drug related charges. The convictions are timely in the context of the commencement of the Insolvency Practitioner licensing regime.
