Boohoo’s largest external shareholder, Jupiter Fund Management, has rejected MPs’ call for Mahmud Kamani to step down as an executive director. This follows an independent review which revealed illegally low pay and life-threatening conditions for the factory workers making its clothes. PricewaterhouseCooper LLP (PwC) also stepped down as auditor this month after six years of working with the fashion retailer. PwC declined to comment on its motive for ending its relationship with the family run business.
