One man who will not be rolling in the deep with KPMG is Muhyiddin Yassin. He is Prime Minister today because he has better sence than KPMG.
I believe, the Muhyiddin factor ensured, we will not be in a state of flux, as in the SC probe where much is known on Deloitte but very little on the fate of KPMG.
The lyrics then;
Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep
I have no story to be told
But I've heard one on you
and I'm gonna make your head burn
I am glad, that we will soon discover the superior techniques KPMG used to complete the IMDB audit in three weeks, as well as why it makes perfect sence not demand financial records from a company to measure if they have the muscle to stomach a US$1 billion murabaha-loan, in case of default.
Looking at back, I realise on the nobleness of KPMG ; Falsifying audit report: 'It's a treacherous act' .
I am beginning to have a better understanding , why a story on Petronas , Malaysia's only Fortune 500 company not distancing itself from KPMG when its ultimate shareholder is suing 44 KPMG partners is a NON story.
The story instead is on providence with a little help from the superb investigative reporting skills of the Edge , exposing Serba Dinamik.
And in one fell swoop, relief was extended to KPMG, the bullied victim who merely wanted to tell the truth.
For sure was an act of God that what followed was the Malaysian lawsuit and then ; KPMG settles lawsuit with $84m payout to liquodators who alleged that the Audit firm not only did not detect fraud, but also KPMG's staff had falsified papers themselves during the audit.
Who tipped the edge off? We will never know, but what we do know is for an investigative team, their research skills were at best below sub par, which is why not even a single paragraph was devoted that something strikingly similar happend in Singapore.
This was a story on how a company audited by KPMG suddenly found itself in the eye of the storm. READ ; ACRA keeping a close watch on Hyflux and its scandal-ridden audit firm accused of fraud and corruption by govts around the world.
We should believe in the new normal, fraud normally happens in just a mere reporting season and not over time.
In this normal, the odd man out who was never on record reported to have been intimidated for standing up to IMDB, though there are enough reports on them defending IMDB, is the knight and shining armour.
The alternate to the above scene, would be to plant an evil seed in the minds of minority shareholders ; probe deeper to learn how to kill a Mockingbird.
