...CASE ANALYSIS QUESTION 1 From the legal perspective, were there any abuses of power by the management and breach of fiduciary on the part of the directors? In our opinion, there are abuses of power by the management in the company of Delima Enterprise Sdn Bhd. The management should act in the best interest of the company not the best interest of the director. For example in this case, the management uses their power to withdrawals several money from the company without proper documentation. It is illegal because management is not allowed to take money without authorization. Another abuse of power use by management is they claimed the personal vehicle expenses charged to the company. The management should be aware of separate legal entity. All this problem occurs because lack of internal control and no segregation of duties among staff in the Delima Enterprise Sdn Bhd. Director plays an important role in the management of the company and adopting policy decisions to the company. Therefore the directors have certain important duties while conducting company business. There are three types of fiduciary duties of company director which are duty of reasonable care, skill and diligent, duty to act in good faith in the best interest of the company and duty to avoid conflict interest. Director is responsibilities to fulfill their fiduciary duty and owes a corporation duty of trust and is bound to act in the best interest of its shareholders. The first duties that the directors must......
