Ex-Deloitte auditor Stephen Ives is due to face a private hearing this week, over the circumstances in which he acquired a luxury vehicle from a company that he audited.

Due to take place 17-19 December, the independent tribunal will finally bring to close just one aspect of a saga that has been running since 1996.

Ives worked as an auditor for Deloitte on Capital Corporation, the company that owned the high-society casino Crockfords. He was due to face an independent tribunal at the International Disputes Resolution Centre.

Chris Dickson, executive counsel to the JDS, brought issue to the ‘circumstances in which Capital Corporation plc was paid for the Range Rover’, the ‘circumstances in which other partners at Deloitte were misled about the facts’ and Ives’ and his accountant Dineshkumar Patel’s ‘obstruction of the executive counsel’s investigation’.

The Ives case is just part of a much wider investigation in progress by the JDS into Deloitte’s role in the audit of Capital Corporation. Dickson is expected to rule on its role sometime in the New Year.
