Notice of Decision of Disciplinary Committee Notice is hereby given by the Disciplinary Committee of the New Zealand Society of Accountants, that at a conjoint hearing held on the 15th day of August 1994, the Committee heard charges against Mohammed Rafiq Sahib of Fiji, that he had: A. Been guilty of grave impropriety in a professional respect. B. Been guilty of defaults discreditable to an accountant. C. Conducted himself in such a manner as to render the exercise of the powers of the disciplinary committee expedient in the interests of the public or of the society. In that he had taken sums of money between $3,000 and $5,000 from his employer without his employer's consent. Mohammed Rafiq Sahib did not appear before the disciplinary committee, therefore a plea of not guilty was taken. The disciplinary committee found the charges proved based on evidence that was heard and received at the hearing on the 15th day of August 1994. Pursuant to section 24 (3) (a) of the New Zealand Society of Accountants Act 1958, the disciplinary committee ordered that the name of Mohammed Rafiq Sahib be removed from the Register of Members of the society and fixed the date of the 15th day of August 1999, after which Mohammed Rafiq Sahib may apply for re-registration under this Act. Mohammed Rafiq Sahib was ordered to pay to the society the sum of $2,552.97 (incl. G.S.T.) in respect of costs and expenses of and incidental to the inquiry by the disciplinary committee and the investigation by the investigation committee. The disciplinary committee ordered that its decision be published in the Chartered Accountant's Journal of New Zealand, and the New Zealand Gazette with mention of the member's name and locality. Dated this 14th day of September 1994.
