Rothschild calls for Bumi head

In the latest development in the bitter Bumi divorce, co-founder Nat Rothschild yesterday called on the miner’s chief executive Nick Von Schirnding to step down over claims that he misled the company and shareholders over alleged irregularities on his CV. Bumi has said that the accusations are “false”, and that Von Schirnding was hired for his “experience and competence”.
