JOHANNESBURG – Both Steinhoff and accounting firm Deloitte are set to face a huge class action suit from one of Europe's mass litigation firms.

The Barents-Krans firm says people who acquired Steinhoff shares between June 2013 and the 6th of December 2017 can register online to participate.

In December, the retail giant's shares plummeted over 80-percent after accounting irregularities were revealed.
