According to the lawsuit, PetroChina issued materially false and misleading statements about the Company’s business and operations. The complaint alleges that: (a) the Company's senior officials were in non-compliance with the Company's corporate governance directives and code of ethics; (b) as a result, the Company was subject to investigation and disciplinary action by various governmental and regulatory authorities; (c) the Company's financial statements were materially false and misleading as they contained direct references to the Company's Code of Ethics, and statements regarding its compliance with regulations and internal governance policies; (d) the Company lacked adequate internal and financial controls; and (e), as a result of the foregoing, the Company's financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. As result of the wrongdoing, PetroChina shares declined in value, damaging investors.
