INKERMAN INVESTIGATIONS CASE STUDIES

Case Study 1.

PROBLEM

A global manufacturer required The Inkerman Group to investigate suspicions of racketeering within one of its European manufacturing sites.

SOLUTION

The Inkerman Group was retained by the client to investigate these suspicions.

Inkerman Group experienced investigators analysed a vast array of information provided by the client and various sources. This enabled them (in consultation with the client’s corporate legal team) to plan and then undertake additional extensive enquiries which included

  • Covert Intelligence Source handling
  • Surveillance
  • In-depth witness interviews in multiple languages.

This culminated in the production of a comprehensive and detailed file of evidence by The Inkerman Group investigations team which was then subsequently handed to the prosecuting authorities. This led to the arrest and prosecution of those responsible for the extortion.

Case Study 2.

PROBLEM

One of the world’s largest food-producing companies suspected that its product was being diverted at one of its European production plants.

SOLUTION

Through close examination of the process and procedures, The Inkerman Group investigators were able to identify those responsible for the ongoing theft, through

  • Additional CCTV monitoring and reporting
  • Surveillance
  • Complex interviews over a three-month period
  • Test purchasing

The results of this investigation enabled the client to review its production and distribution procedures in order to prevent a reoccurrence of a similar nature.
