HKICPA, 26-Apr-2012
As usual, the HKICPA fails to name the listed company. Mr Chan was Financial Controller of Fu Cheong International Holdings Ltd which listed in 2002 and faked its accounts. Ernst & Young was the reporting accountant in the IPO and auditor for 2001. With good behaviour Mr Chan probably served 50 months and was paroled last year.

Suitability in a disclosure-based market
SEHK has announced possible waivers of the profit criteria. We don't object, but the profit test should be scrapped. It has no place in a disclosure-based market, and is no substitute for better accounting disclosure requirements and effective legal remedies and deterrents, all of which HK still sorely lacks. We make proposals for those. (8-Jun-2009)
