New scandal:

KPMG is “suing £723m” over botched audits of a US-listed Chinese biotech that collapsed in 2012

Scandal-plagued KPMG is being sued for an alleged £723million over its audit of a US-listed Chinese biotechnology company that collapsed in 2012.

The auditor’s “appalling” work allegedly enabled China Medical Technologies to commit a “brazen” £348million accounting fraud, a Hong Kong court has been told.

Liquidators at restructuring firm Borrelli Walsh said KPMG failed to ask “obvious” questions that “easily” uncovered the fraud, according to the Financial Times.

A KPMG spokesman said: “We are unable to comment while the hearing is ongoing.”
