Middle East
Services involved:

Our team supported a client in relation to an ongoing investigation into allegations of government level corruption in the Middle East.

This was to support a whistleblowing allegation that was made, into allegations that illicit payments had been made to obtain products and services, involving high level government officials. Our local network of investigators and on the ground enquiries mapped out the companies, identifying familial and business links between individuals, using social media analytics to map out connections and other potential links.

Covert human enquiries then corroborated the information found, to highlight where corruption was taking place and how to mitigate this in future.
