Deloitte losing their Touche

Deloitte losing their Touche

The South African arm of one of the world’s biggest audit firms, Deloitte and Touche, is under scrutiny for failing to report financial irregularities involving JSE-listed Advtech Ltd. Apparently the matter has been forwarded to the National Prosecution Authority by shareholders who don’t want to be caught up in claims of fraud and financial impropriety.

Sorry, can't find the link to the Forensic Report. Is it the "Genesis SLA" link? When I do click on here it comes up with "address not found". Anyone else having this problem?

Editor's Note
Denver, there must be something wrong with your connection. There are four documents provided. One of the documents proving impropriety Genesis SLA, The Finding, and two sets of the Transcript to the hearing.

This is once again irrefutable proof why the IRBA only allows members if SAICA to be registered as Registered Auditors as well. Can you imagine the chaos if members of the South Afircan Institute of Professional Accountants, (SAIPA) the other full member of IFAC in South Africa were also allowed to register as Auditors. The 2 bodies will compete and the levels of assurance will improve to such an extent that the hanky panky of the financial world will stop overnight. Normal people will start sharing in the wealth of the various listed and unlisted companies and not only a few politically connected oxygen thieves. I know quite few SAIPA members that are very well equipped to tackle projects such as the Arms Deal, the Reserve bank / ABSA theft etc.

Johnathan Jansen, please resign now before your naive credibility disintegrates completely.

Our bet is, he won't do anything like that; the pie is quite sweet on both sides, public and private educational sectors.
