in the court case against directors, Justice Middleton found the directors had failed to take the required step of applying their own minds to the task of examining the accounts - he said directors, who had been repeatedly warned about the level of Centro's short-term debt for several weeks, failed to read, understand and focus on that critical issue when examining the accounts - the group's former chief financial officer, Romana Nenna, has been barred from serving as a manager or director of companies for a two year period beginning October 10 - the non-executive directors were: Centro's current chairman, Paul Cooper; former chairman Brian Healey; the former head of the audit committee, Sam Kavourakis; current Centro non-executive director, Jim Hall; former non-executive directors Peter Wilkinson and Graham Goldie - the six non-executive directors avoided any penalty other than court declarations after a judge said to levy anything more would be unfair
