FSG FORENSIC INVESTIGATORS & AUDITORS | TRACERS | RISK MANAGERS |
SA's national litigation, corporate & government private intelligence, private/forensic investigation/auditing, loss & risk management specialists.
We are honoured to announce that FSG has been appointed to the newly established PANEL OF INVESTIGATORS OF THE PUBLIC PROTECTOR, SOUTH AFRICA in the capacity of "investigative resource of The Public Protector". The appointment of FSG by The PUBLIC PROTECTOR marks the achievement a priority objective of FSG, namely to secure recognition at the level of national government of FSG's capacity and expertise to investigate the likes of corruption and abuse of power on the part of politicians and civil servants (usually in collusion with private business).
The second reason speaks to the culture of FSG. We are firmly of the opinion that corruption and the abuse of authority for personal gain by politicians and civil servants is a scourge that threatens the very foundation of our government and democracy. More significantly, corrupt practices defeat the objectives of black empowerment because it undermines the capacity of government to deliver services and to install infrastructure to the benefit of HDI groups.
