28 June 2019
The Register received a complaint that, following a hearing in Magistrates Court, the Registrant spoke to the prosecutor in a hostile tone and was overbearing and aggressive, contrary to Sections 3.1 and 3.4 of the NRPSI Code of Professional Conduct. Furthermore, the Registrant had not planned for overrunning of the assignment, which is contrary to clause 4.7 and 4.8 of the same code.
Having listened carefully to the Registrant's version of events, and in view of the fact that neither the complainant nor any witnesses attended the hearing, the Disciplinary Committee found unanimously that these allegations were unproven.
28 June 2019

The Disciplinary Committee found that these allegations were unproven.
16 June 2019

14 May 2019

The Register received a complaint alleging that the Registrant had intervened and corrected the interpreting of another interpreter.

 

The complaint was not referred to the DC. 

The Registrant was advised that, in the event that they are concerned about the performance of another interpreter, to advise the Principal, rather than making a direct intervention and correcting that interpretation themselves.
03 February 2019
The Register received a complaint alleging that the Registrant failed to attend an assignment.
The complaint was not referred to the DC.

Whilst it was not disputed that the Registrant failed to attend an assignment, in the light of the explanations given by the Registrant, and that this was a one-off act, the PCC considered it was not sufficiently serious to warrant referral to the DC.
01 February 2019

The complaint was not upheld.
