"The lawsuit claims that China North East's auditor Baker Tilly Hong Kong Limited, fraudulently issued clean audit reports for China North East's financial statements," said Rosen attorney Phillip Kim. "This appears to be another audit firm that has conducted fraudulent audits of a Chinese company, causing investors to lose nearly the entire value of their investment," added Kim.
