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.
