Sudhir Sesungkur is still under an interim order issued by Rehana Mungly-Gulbul on 30 November 2015. He is accused of having claimed money from clients of Mazars when he was expelled as a partner of this organization.
Prohibition in force until March 7
He is therefore prohibited from claiming fees for professional services from customers of Mazars. This order will remain in force until 7 March 2017, when the case will be heard in summary proceedings.
In the case that will be called this morning, Kriti Taukoordass states in his complaint that he reached an agreement with Sudhir Sesungkur on 18 July 2008 to set up a firm under the name of Corporate Financial Services. It was to provide services and advice in the areas of audit, tax and accounting. The two partners had to each hold 50% of the shares and share the profits.
On 5 December 2009, the two men were co-opted as partners of Mazars. In April 2015, Mazars informed Sudhir Sesungkur of the decision taken by the Executive Committee on 17 March 2015 to expel him as a partner of that organization.
Kriti Taukoordass points out in his complaint that on 1 April 2015 Sudhir Sesungkur illegally transferred the sum of $ 150,000 to the bank account held by him and his wife. He accuses Sudhir Sesungkur of not having disclosed the existence of this account.
The complainant asked the Supreme Court to order the current Minister of Financial Services and good governance and his wife to pay him 219,250 dollars (Rs 7 million) and damages of Rs 25 million. Kriti Taukoordass retained the services of Imtihaz Mamoojee, lawyer, and of Mr. Omar Bahemia, lawyer.
