HKICPA fines Baker Tilly and Mr Au Yiu Kwan over 2006 Egana audit
| Our article, 26-Jul-2007
At last, 11 years after Webb-site blew the whistle on the Egana fraud in our article of 26-Jul-2007, Baker Tilly and its former director get a slap on the wrist and fines of HK$250k and HK$100k respectively for their duff audit. BT even tries to claim that it wasn't responsible for its directors' failings. The audit fee for that year alone was HK$1.47m, far more than the fines. Egana had a market value of HK$7.76bn (US$1bn) on the day of our article, all of which was lost in the collapse.
