Extensive research and asset tracing on two rogue employees in the UAE
12 January 2021
On behalf of a UAE government agency, we supported an extensive and long-running internal investigation in which two rogue employees were suspected of having diverted funds and de-frauded the institution.
This involved undertaking detailed research into the subjects’ backgrounds, family relationships, any and all associated business interests, as well as asset tracing of land / properties and vehicles across the country. Subsequently this expanded to a regional focus, speaking to a range of sources to look at their travel patterns and whether assets may have been owned in other jurisdictions.
We were successful in identifying a number of tangible assets such as a fleet of heavy goods vehicles, and properties registered under one of their associated businesses, which allowed the client to take legal action against the employees and some of their associates.
