Francis Ingham responds to criticism over the PRCA’s handling of Bell Pottinger’s expulsion

12th September 2017

In a not unexpected move, the The Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA) announced last week that it had imposed its most serious sanction on Bell Pottinger, following its investigation into Bell Pottinger’s work for Oakbay Capital in South Africa. The investigation followed a complaint from South Africa’s Democratic Alliance.

Bell Pottinger will not be eligible to reapply for corporate membership of the PRCA for a minimum period of five years. On the face of it, the PRCA had little choice but to expel Bell Pottinger; if they had not, its own credibility would have been on the line.

But the PRCA has been criticised over its handling over a number of issues resulting from Bell Pott Gate and here Francis Ingham covers these.
