05 September 2017
The Register received a complaint alleging that the Registrant had sent abusive and threatening emails to firm of solicitors after being offered a level of fees for a interpreting assignment that the Registrant viewed as derisory. 
The complaint was not upheld. The PCC did not regard the emails as abusive or threatening. The PCC advised the Registrant to be more temperate in his language with prospective Principals. The Complainant was advised to note the level of seriousness required before a regulator could make a finding of misconduct.
28 August 2017
The Register received a complaint alleging that the Registrant advised a client during a Police interview not to agree to be represented by the duty solicitor in court the following day, as the solicitor was not from a good firm. It was also alleged that the Registrant said to the client that he would arrange for an alternative solicitor to represent him.  
The complaint was not referred to the DC, as the allegations, which were denied by the Registrant, relied on hearsay evidence upon which little weight could be placed.
12 August 2017
The Register received a complaint alleging that the Registrant had failed to attend an interpreting assignment which had been booked by the Complainant through an agency, in breach of clauses 4.7 and 4.8 of the Code. 
The PCC noted that, after uncertainty about the date of the assignment, the agency had cancelled the booking with the Registrant. The Registrant then declined a re-booking. The PCC considered that there was no realistic prospect of the Disciplinary Committee (DC) finding the Registrant to be in breach of 4.7 and 4.8 of the Code, and did not refer the case to the DC.
11 August 2017
The Register received a complaint alleging that the Registrant breached clause 3.12 of the NRPSI Code of Professional Conduct.

The Complaint was not referred.

The PCC considered the complaint received and after careful consideration, has decided to take no further action in relation to any alleged breach of clause 3.12 of the NRPSI Code of Professional Conduct.

27 March 2017
The Register received a complaint alleging that the Registrant had failed to attend an interpreting assignment for a health visit, only given notice to the Principal of their being unable to attend due to another assignment overrunning ten minutes after the health visit was due to start, in breach of clauses 4.7 and 4.8 of the Code of Conduct.
The complaint was not referred to the Disciplinary Committee. The Registrant accepted an admonishment from the Professional Conduct Committee (PCC).
24 March 2017
The Register received a complaint alleging that the Registrant had failed to attend an interpreting assignment at a Prison, giving 1 hour 45 minutes notice to the Principal of their being unable to attend due to another assignment overrunning, in breach of clauses 4.7 and 4.8 of the Code of Conduct.
The complaint was not referred to the Disciplinary Committee. The Registrant accepted an admonishment from the Professional Conduct Committee (PCC).
23 March 2017
The Register received a complaint in respect of an insurance claim where the Registrant had interpreted an interview. It was alleged that the Registrant made contact with a third party following the interview and supported the interviewee's contention that she and the Registrant were coerced into signing statements by the insurance investigator; the Registrant signed a witness statement which was untrue, and he failed to respond to the complaint made to NRPSI, despite being invited to do so on several occasions.
The complaints were proven. 

Mr Salem Ramadan Almagalish (Reg. No. 16475) of London was found to be in breach of clauses 3.1, 3.2, 3.4, 3.11, 3.13 and 3.16 of the Code of Conduct by the Disciplinary Committee. The Registrant was expelled for a period of two years.
16 March 2017
The Register received a complaint alleging that the Registrant challenged the opinions of a Fertility Nurse Practitioner and stated their own views, contrary to clauses 3.1 and 3.2 of the Code.
The Disciplinary Committee panel failed to be satisfied that the allegation was proved and the case was dismissed.

25 January 2017
The Register received a complaint alleging that the Registrant failed to interpret all the information they were required to, and shared personal information about their health during the assignment.

Complaint was not referred. In the light of the evidence, the PCC found there was no realistic prospect of the allegations being proven.
