Former recruitment healthcare CEO charged with assault

Tawhid Juneja, the former CEO of UK healthcare recruitment agency Primary Care Professionals (PCP), has been charged with two counts of assault. He has pleaded not guilty.

Hertfordshire newspaper The Comet reports Juneja was charged with two counts of assaulting his wife by beating, and also charged with coercive and controlling behaviour towards his wife.

Juneja pleaded not guilty to all counts at St Albans Magistrates’ Court and has been bailed pending trial.

In August 2017, multi-discipline recruiter McGinley Group acquired the trade assets of the healthcare recruiter after PCP (formerly known as Primary Care People) fell into administration.

When contacted by Recruiter, McGinley Group confirmed Juneja left the business in July.

Juneja’s solicitors pointed out there is no connection whatsoever between the proceedings and his role as a director of PCP or any other business that he has been previously involved with.

In a statement, sent over to Recruiter this morning, his solicitors added: “My client deeply regrets that these allegations, which he strongly refutes, have been made by his ex-wife. Mr Juneja denies that he has acted unlawfully and will vigorously defend these matters at trial. He looks forward to the opportunity to disprove the allegations in court and to clearing his name. While the case is ongoing he asks that his privacy, and that of his family and children, is respected.”
