Ex-City Link directors cleared in Coventry court case

Ex-City Link directors cleared in Coventry court case

Three former directors of failed parcel delivery firm City Link have been cleared of the charge that they failed to inform the UK government they were planning to make staff redundant. David Smith, Robert Peto and Thomas Wright were found not guilty at the Coventry Magistrates’ Court today (13 November).

City Link called in the administrators on Christmas Eve (24 December) last year and the company’s 2,700 employees were later made redundant.

The three men were represented by law firm White & Case LLP, which issued a statement on behalf of its clients saying “their overwhelming feelings are sadness and regret that, despite their very best efforts in dreadful circumstances, they could not save City Link from insolvency and that so many people lost their jobs at the end of last year.”
