PARIS — Legal wrangling continues in the accounting scandal involving French retailer Marionnaud Parfumeries.

The auditing company KPMG has appeared before the French High Counsel for Statutory Auditors, accused of not alerting authorities when Marionnaud executives trumped up the company’s accounts in 2002 and 2003.

Marcel Frydman, former chief executive officer of the French beauty chain, was found guilty of falsifying accounts in July this year. He was given an 18-month suspended sentence and fined 300,000 euros, or $472,000, at the time.

The High Counsel will announce its decision regarding KPMG on Nov. 20.
