A KPMG Hong Kong employee has been charged with bribing a colleague over the
IPO of a Chinese fabric maker.
The Independent Commission Against Corruption claims that Leung Sze-chit, a
32 year-old senior manager at the firm offered a subordinate HK$100,000 over the
floatation of Hontex International, which raised HK$1bn in December last year.
The firm uncovered the alleged payment through its internal hotline,
suspended the staff member and reported the matter to the authorities. KPMG is
co-operating fully with the subsequent inquiries, reports the
HMRC breaches client confidentiality; and partner profits fall at EY. These stories and more discussed in Friday Afternoon Live
