Well, in theory, auditors and accountants are supposed to be professional and reputable people.

 

Good theory.  When you see retiring members of an accounting firm showing up as members of a BOD of a company they used to audit, it's a potential conflict of interest & cause for concern.  Much like the low ownership % of TRE by those running the company.  Or the fact that there was no Chinese website for a company operating in China and constantly looking for new money.  Or the fact that a Canadian was running a Chinese company, in China, but spent most of his time in Canada.  Or the strange subsidiary structure of the company where money only went out to the subs for purchases of inventory, but never returned to the parent when sales were made.  Lots of that stuff isn't supposed to happen.
