A hearing by the British Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA) into the conduct of the British PR company Bell Pottinger is underway.
Bell Pottinger has admitted to conducting a PR campaign on behalf of the Guptas that was found to be offensive. The company is accused of using issues around race to defend the Gupta family.
EWN UK Correspondent, Gavin Grey, says the hearing which is significant to the company's future, is being held behind closed doors.
