Case Study

Investigation into corruption in Iraq

Services involved:
Due Diligence
Human Source Intelligence


Our teams led a highly sensitive investigation into potential wrongdoing in Iraq involving government agencies, local contractors and non-state actors to inform a strategic-level decision by one of our clients.

We utilised local human sources to gather useful information on the tactics being used by the groups in question, down to the level of specific individuals and locations, which was then corroborated by our access to other databases and use of specialist open source techniques.

This provided our client with an in-depth investigatory report, supported by a range of raw information materials, covering places, people, activities and wrongdoing at a level of specificity that was actually useful.
