HKICPA bans Henry Chui Che Hung for 7 years and fines him HK$50kReasons
HKICPA, 31-Mar-2011
Comment: it is debatable what relevance sexual offences, however disgusting, have to one's skills as an accountant. Is it really the role of self-regulatory organisations to act as a second court, or would their time be better spent disciplining their members for bad professional work? Is it realistic for professional bodies to claim that their reputation is damaged by the behaviour of their members, thereby implying that members of such bodies are less likely than the general public to commit such offences?
