A tribunal of the Joint Disciplinary Scheme will hear formal complaints against James on 2 December. The evidence used includes the DTI report that examined Astra's accounts for the year ended 31 March 1986 and uncovered an alleged 'false invoice for approximately £240,000 against an off-shore company'. The report also found the 'invoice contributed approximately 70% to the Astra group's reported pre-tax profit of £340,024 for the year ended 31 March 1986. The invoice was therefore crucial to the achievement of the profit forecast of £300,000 which had been made and repeated by the directors during the year'. James began his own case against the DTI for malicious prosecution in January and is now threatening to include the English ICA in the action. 'Their intention has been to smear and rubbish me and I am outraged that they have been hammering away at me for ten years,' he said. The JDS issued a £750,000 penalty against the company's auditors BDO Stoy Hayward last year.
