The cofounder of infamous UK PR firm Bell Pottinger, Lord Timothy Bell, apparently warned the agency’s CEO, James Henderson, to not work with Gupta-owned Oakbay.
He referred to the account as “smelly”.
Lord Bell left the agency last year following health issues, but he reportedly claims the Oakbay account also played a role.
He rubbished the statement put out by Bell Pottinger which claims management had been misled about the work done for Oakbay.
Henderson denies that Bell warned him.
