Frontier and varied investigation methods
CCAC will design a comprehensive investigation plan based on the specific circumstances of the case, combining different investigation methods thoroughly. The investigation methods include electronic forensics (recovering electronic information such as documents, mails, online chat records, system operation logs, trajectories and behavior paths, etc.), financial audits, documentary analysis, due diligence checking (online, offline) and troubleshooting, personnel interviews as well as other professional investigation skills.
Compared with the traditional anti-corruption methods, CCAC focuses more on proactive evidence-collecting than merely passively sorting out the clues that clients have already mastered. In the initial stage of anti-corruption, the above-mentioned investigation skills can often be used to obtain critical evidence and clues.
Comprehensive and effective solution
In the handling of anti-corruption criminal cases, CCAC’s solutions comprehensively cover investigation and evidence collection, criminal charges, criminal claims, and improvement of corporate compliance etc. For those senior management personnel who do not constitute a criminal offence, but meet the unfulfilled loyalty and diligence and cause damage to company's interests, CCAC collects evidence and provides clients with civil litigation claims. At the same time, CCAC can also provide professional labor dispute solutions for clients.
Electronic data compiles an employee’s various activities, not only in documentary and files, but also in electronic traces such as data logs. The extraction and analysis of the data can recover fraudulent emails, documents, pictures and other files. It can also confirm the traces of USB device, application installation and use. Through electronic data, the behavior of fraudulent employees can be restored, and case evidence and clues can be sought.
Due diligence check
To the extent prescribed by law, we investigate into personal life records and suspicious leads available and obtained on public channels by the fraudulent persons, as well as their parents, spouses, children and any other relatives. We also perform background checks on relevant affiliates, and investigate into the situation of the company, including business conditions, employee on-the-job status, etc., to obtain related information.
For cases involving complicated financial information, judicial audit institutions with rich experience are introduced to conduct comprehensive verification on financial information such as account statements, bank receipts, finance related mails and software records, and accounting vouchers, searching for abnormal transactions.
The relevant written materials provided by clients, such as project contracts, settlement documents, approval documents which are suspected of illegal operations by fraudulent personnel, will be investigated. The relevant personnel are investigated for fraudulent leads from the perspective of the public security department.
Using police interrogation skills, a conversation strategy will be formulated based on the case and the personality of the relevant personnel. Conversations are conducted with relevant informed personnel and suspected fraud personnel, in order to obtain and verify information as well as fix evidence.
