Statement regarding Chief Executive Officer - Events have taken a shocking turn at Israeli internet of things group, Telit Communications (LON:TCM) . Hopefully readers listened to my repeated warnings over several years here, about this company's red-flag laden accounts. Also that its profits are essentially fictitious, the way I look at things.

Telit shares are down a further 30% today, to 127p. A bombshell announcement came out today. Here is the full text;

A wife who amusingly, seems to be on the payroll at Telit's "Art curator"!

So the big question is, what happens next? I expect the CEO is toast now. With him gone (probably permanently), then who knows what else could come out of the woodwork. Today's announcement makes this stock completely uninvestable now, in my view. So…
