Jail for Suffolk businessman who ran Glo Brite company despite being banned
A 79-year-old Suffolk man who ignored court orders banning him from being involved in the running of his businesses has been jailed for four months.
George Ormes, who had premises in Woodbridge Road, Ipswich, “buried his head in the sand” and continued being involved in the running of Glo Brite Ltd and Glo Brite Photoluminescent Products Ltd despite being banned from acting as a company director under the Insolvency Act.
Ormes, of Norwich Road, Creeting St Mary, admitted acting as director of a company without leave, being involved in the management of a company without leave, taking part in the management of a company while disqualified and breach of a suspended prison sentence imposed by Ipswich Crown Court in 2013.
He also denied an offence of fraud but was found guilty after a trial. The offences were committed between 2011 and 2016.
Sentencing Ormes at Ipswich Crown Court Judge John Devaux said there had been a complete lack of compliance with court orders in relation to his businesses and the only way to stop him was to send him to prison.
