ACFE to host talk on investigation and interrogations

Muscat: A talk on investigation interviewing and interrogation will be conducted by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) Oman Chapter at the College of Banking and Financial Studies (CBFS) on Wednesday. Abdul Hakeem Al Ojaili, CEO of Bank Dhofar will be the guest of honour at the event.
“In every workplace investigations, interviewing and interrogation are the most important means to obtain needed information to establish facts and findings. Successful resolution of a fraud investigation requires getting confessions the correct and legal way,” said Jose Chacko, partner, Forensic Technology Services at Crowe Horwath Oman.
Jose is also the vice-president of ACFE Oman Chapter and will be delivering the talk at the CBFS.
The ACFE is the world’s largest anti-fraud organisation incorporated in the United States and headquartered in Austin, Texas and is the premier provider of anti-fraud training and education. Together with more than 80,000 members the ACFE is reducing business fraud worldwide and inspiring public confidence in the integrity and objectivity within the profession. ACFE Oman is sponsored by College of Banking and Financial Studies.
“Occupational fraud is a significant threat to any organisation and those organisations which employ fewer anti-fraud controls are more vulnerable to fraud. Forensic auditing provides an investigation methodology and accounting analysis that is both suitable for the courts and will form the basis for discussion, debate and ultimately dispute resolution. Interviewing and interrogations are the principal methods to collect relevant information,” said Davis Kallukaran, President of ACFE Oman.
