Maria Gifford knew what the company was promising it’s members. By February 2004, Kingston’s Assistant Head of Trading Standards Officer had received so many complaints that he called her in to explain IAP’s activities to him. He will give evidence in court.
As a chartered accountant, she perhaps more than the others knew precisely what the company was doing and how it would affect members.
The Secretary of State recently issued proceedings against her; it is highly likely that if Maria Gifford is banned as a company director she will be stripped of her professional qualifications and licence to practise as an accountant.
Last year Ms Gifford committed perjury in court, this is a serious offence that will have serious implications for her.
If you had any direct dealings with Maria Gifford during your time as a member it could be helpful if you contact me.
