GHL Systems said the panel would also look into the possibility of taking any legal action or recovery and also a review of internal control procedures in the group to avert further irregularities.

It said GHL Beijing's posted after tax losses of RM1.29 million in 2008 and RM1.63 million in 2009 but it made net profit of RM109,410 in 2010.
