Inquiries: Charl Pretorius Fined

Inquiry – Mr Charl Pretorius

At an inquiry concluded in Johannesburg on 14 April 2011, a National Horseracing Authority Inquiry Board, chaired by Advocate Guy Hoffman SC, considered whether the article published by Mr Charl Pretorius on his website on 18 September 2010 had the effect of bringing into disrepute the good name of the NHA in contravention of Rule 72.1.26.

The Inquiry Board found that, despite the fact that Mr Charl Pretorius had surrendered his colours by the time the Inquiry commenced, he was still subject to the jurisdiction of the NHA at the time when he published the article forming the subject matter of the inquiry.  The Inquiry Board further found that Mr Charl Pretorius, by publishing the article, had contravened Rule 72.1.26 and imposed a fine of R10 000.

Mr Pretorius has the right of Appeal against the finding and the penalty imposed.
