Research firm Intellidex on Thursday released a report, accusing controversial short-seller Viceroy of “substantially plagiarising” its report on Steinhoff and adding “negligible” original content.
Viceroy calls the allegations “ridiculous”, but failed to address the plagiarism accusation directly.
Fraser Perring, the founder of Viceroy, was disbarred as social in the UK four years ago for misconduct and dishonesty, according to Intellidex Chairperson Stuart Theobald.
BLSA commissioned the report into Viceroy.
