FRANKFURT, Sept 16 (Reuters) - Germany’s accounting watchdog is scrutinising the accounts of German financial services provider Grenke following a critical report by a short-seller, the body’s president said on Wednesday.
Edgar Ernst, president of the privately-owned Financial Reporting Enforcement Panel (FREP), told Reuters: “We are looking at Grenke and are in close cooperation with BaFin.”
