Johannesburg, 04 July 2019 – As was previously communicated, Mr. Anoj Singh was scheduled to appear before the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA)’s Disciplinary Committee for a hearing from 15 to 19 July 2019.
In the course of preparing for that hearing, SAICA became aware of information that has recently become available in the public domain that implicates Mr. Singh. In light of this, SAICA is considering the new information and will possibly be amending the charges against Mr. Singh.
This necessitates a postponement of the scheduled Disciplinary Committee hearing, in order to avoid a piecemeal hearing and to ensure that all allegations against Mr. Singh are fully investigated and dealt with at once.
A new date for the hearing will be announced shortly.
In the interim, SAICA has decided to suspend Mr. Singh’s membership pending the outcome of the disciplinary hearing. This decision was due to the Board not accepting Mr. Singh’s resignation as a SAICA member.
The South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA), South Africa’s pre-eminent accountancy body, is widely recognised as one of the world’s leading accounting institutes. The Institute provides a wide range of support services to more than 46 000 members and associates who are chartered accountants [CAs(SA)], as well as associate general accountants (AGAs(SA)) and accounting technicians (ATs(SA)), who hold positions as CEOs, MDs, board directors, business owners, chief financial officers, auditors and leaders in every sphere of commerce and industry, and who play a significant role in the nation’s highly dynamic business sector and economic development.
