Paul Burr Contracting Ltd

Liquidators of the forestry company report that after almost a year the process has stalled due to a lack of funds and lack of cooperation by the company's director, Paul Burr, who was found not guilty of manslaughter after his employee Lincoln Kidd was killed in 2013 by a tree felled by Burr.

Both Burr and the company were prosecuted under the HSE Act. The company pleaded guilty but was not fined due to having been placed in liquidation five days earlier. Burr was fined $25,000 and ordered to pay $75,000 in reparation.
