Cape Town – A UK body has reportedly found that Bell Pottinger did breach the code of conduct of the Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA) with its work for the Guptas in South Africa, a report has claimed.

“PRWeek can confirm that the PRCA's Professional Practices Committee (PPC) has concluded that Bell Pottinger has breached the trade body's code of conduct in its work for controversial South African client Oakbay Investments,” the online PR publication reported on Thursday.

"The PRCA said ahead of that hearing that if the PPC were to reject the complaint, then this would be announced by the end of yesterday (August 23)," it said. "No such announcement has been made."
