The firm and Mea were also fined RM123,000 and RM44,000 respectively, the SC said in a statement today.
“The actions were taken as the firm and its partners failed to comply with the International Standard on Quality Control and relevant International Standards on Auditing when auditing the financial statements of a public listed company for the financial year ended Dec 31, 2016,” it said.
The AOB took action against Mea in his capacity as the engagement partner and Wong in his capacity as the engagement quality control reviewer for the audit of the listed company, the SC said.
The regulator, however, did not disclose the name of the listed company.
The firm and Mea had appealed to the SC against the period of prohibition and quantum of monetary penalty imposed by the AOB but the appeal was dismissed.
