[SINGAPORE] An overwhelming majority of shareholders of Noble Group Ltd, which has denied allegations of improper accounting, approved the company's financial statements for last year.

The resolution was backed by 99.92 per cent of votes at Noble's annual shareholders' meeting in Singapore on Friday, which Reuters attended.

Before the vote, Noble's chairman Richard Elman said he rejected all allegations made by previously unknown firm Iceberg Research as inaccurate, unreliable and misleading, in his first public comments on the issue.
