I’m neither Core Team, nor NEM Foundation however can give answers to some of these for you, not all:
- Was the community who participated in electing and funding this NEM Foundation Executive Council betrayed by concealed misapropriation of funds?
Not to my knowledge. There is a legal requirement for Audited Accounts to be filed with the Singpore regulator/company register (ACRA). They can be downloaded by anyone and are publicly available. The past couple of years are already there and signed off by an auditor. The last financial year are not yet due but will be in a few months. It takes time to produce both the accounts and have them audited, its not uncommon for this to be 6-9 months after the financial year end as it takes the accountant/auditors time to do it. This is a legal requirement placed on both the company and its directors as individuals.
- Why can’t an audit of transactions be brought forward that proves what the funds were spent on?
See above, I think it covers this question as well
- Is the ROI report issued by the NEM Foundation a fabricated report and backed by no tangible evidence at all?
Not to my knowledge but the numbers provided should be able to be cross referenced with those from point 1 for the community to confirm
- Is misapropriation of funds systemic across all entities asociated with the NEM Foundation?
I’m not sure which entities you mean. If you mean NEM Ventures and NEM Studios, no there is no systemic misappropriation of funds. If you have evidence to the contrary, please feel free to share it with the community in an open forum, it should be if it is exists.
- Are wallets associated with NEM Foundation salaries and buisness transactions kept anonymous to conceal embezzelment?
Not to my knowledge. They will be part of the information that should be checked by auditors.
This reads such that there was no oversight in place of Alexandra Tinsman’s spending of community approved funds.
It reads as the Core Team not being those responsible for that role, which is correct.
The accounts and most strategic/board level decisions are ratified at a formal meeting (AGM/EGM), as per the structure of a Company Limited by Guarantee. As @Jaguar0625 mentions that is not Core’s role; either in the project or legally. The legal structure is (and has been since it was created) that the Members of the foundation, who attend the meetings, vote to approve/reject those points so the community (specifically the Members of the NEM Foundation) provide that legal oversight and governance, similarly to how shareholders might. If those members are not happy with the information or answers provided (or other decisions), they could vote to not ratify the accounts, call additional votes, ask questions etc at an AGM/EGM.
This is not a process I have been involved in personally with NF but it is how Companies Limited By Guarantee work generally and specifically in Singapore it applies. So in short, the NF Members (200+ people in the community) that are responsible for that oversight.
