Outcome

The Disciplinary Committee made the following order:

  1. The charges that had been proffered against Mr Swirsky which are contained at pages A001 to A005 of the bundle are dismissed;
  2. The fact that such charges have been dismissed together with the Committees Ruling in respect thereof is to be published in Accounting SA and that is to include the name of Mr Swirsky so as to make clear to the Institute membership that the charges against Mr Swirsky have been dismissed; and
  3. In light of the fact that the Institute electronically communicated with its members to ascertain the whereabouts of Mr Swirsky prior to the commencement of these disciplinary proceedings, the Institute is to, with the same prominence, electronically communicate to all of its members informing them that the charges against Mr Swirsky have been dismissed.
