Ernst & Young Hua Ming LLP

China Longyuan Power (0916): we appointed the wrong auditor
Company announcement, 18-May-2018
Following a Webb-site complaint to HKEX, it emerges that instead of appointing Ernst & Young Hua Ming LLP (of mainland China) at last year's AGM, they meant to appoint Ernst & Young (HK), which signed the 2017 audit report. We have also filed complaints with the HKICPA and Financial Reporting Council, because a HK firm shouldn’t sign an audit report when it hasn't been appointed. The two firms are legally separate.

Closely following the SFC's suspension of China High Precision (0591) comes news of another case, this time involving an auditor which claims that China's law on "state secrets" prevents it from handing over its paperwork on an aborted IPO. This is a real test of one country two systems - will the HK courts enforce a mainland law on secrecy?
