The Committee of Companies of the British Parliament, which opened a few weeks ago an investigation into the bankruptcy of Thomas Cook, will question on October 15 the former directors of the group, on issues such as the remuneration of the dome and the accounting of the firm.
As reported by the British Parliament, five executives from Thomas Cook, including CEO, Peter Fankhauser, will appear Tuesday at the first session of the investigation.
In addition to Fankhauser, the former Chairman of the Group, Frank Meysman, will also have to face the Commission’s questions next week.
Other managers who will have to appear will be the chief financial officer of Thomas Cook, Sten Daugaard, the head of the audit committee, Martine Verluyten, and the head of the Thomas Cook compensation committee, Warren Tucker.
In the coming weeks, the Committee will also question the auditors of Thomas Cook, PwC and EY – specifically, on Tuesday, October 22 -, the Financial Information Council and the Insolvency Service.
In addition, they will have to appear the former chief financial officer of Thomas Cook, Bill Scott, as well as former CEOs Harriet Green and Manny Fontenla-Novoa, although for them it is necessary to confirm the date, according to the British Parliament.
Days after the bankruptcy of the tour operator, the president of the Committee on Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy of the British Government, Rachel Reeves, said that the «main protagonists» of the disappearance of the company «should face public scrutiny and account for their actions before the collapse of the company. «
