Scott Merrillees, the chief financial officer at embattled mining group Bumi, is to step down from the board after the scandal-hit company has twice been forced to delay its financial results.
Merrillees will now focus on his role running the finance department at Bumi subsidiary Berau Coal and will not seek re-election at the group's annual meeting in June.
Bumi has been rocked by allegations made by a whistleblower of irregular payments made in its Indonesian mines.
Nick von Schirnding, chief executive of Bumi, said: "I thank Scott for his contribution as CFO to the company."
