Section 34 of the Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities Act, 12 of 2004, obliges a person in authority (accounting officer, municipal manager, etc.) “who knows or ought reasonably to have known or suspected that
any other person has committed an offence … of R100 000 or more, must report such knowledge or suspicion … to any police official”. In addition, that section states that any person who fails to comply
with this requirement is guilty of an offence and may be found criminally accountable and may be fined or imprisoned.
We have developed a service enabling such persons in authority to satisfy this legal requirement. Towards this, we will review the suspicious transactions (or report, as applicable), draft an affidavit in the required format,
report the matter to the SAPS, and assist in any other matter related thereto. If required, our office, on specific instruction,
will fully investigate the matter and take it to its logical conclusion.
In cases where our office is involved in an investigation (which does not require expert testimony in court), we offer to assist with the lodging of complainant's statements on behalf of the client.
