In nose133, noseweek said Stephen (also called Steven) Powell had been the lead prosecutor in the prosecution of former Investec employee Laetitia Peyper. We also published that his ENS Forensic falls under Leonard Katz’s liquidation division. Both statements were wrong. While it’s true that Mr Powell was a prosecutor with the Department of Justice for many years, he in fact left the department in 1998 (long before the Peyper case) to work for Deloitte & Touche from where he was recruited by Sonnenberg Hoffman Galombik (now Edward Nathan & Sonnenberg) to establish ENS Forensic, of which he is managing director. He does not answer to Mr Katz.
While noseweek does everything in its power and resources to research facts, this time we stuffed up – for which we offer Mr Powell our sincere apologies; also our thanks for the polite way in which he brought the matter to our attention.
