The YCCC Whistleblowing Hotline has to date received 130 Complaints.
Every Complainant has been contacted by the Sethi Investigation team.
Of the 50 Complaints falling within the Terms of Reference, 21 complaints are being actively investigated (the remaining 29 having been either resolved, redirected or voluntarily discontinued).
Of the active Complaints falling within the Terms of Reference, every single Complainant has attended an investigation meeting with the Sethi Investigation Team.
The Investigation meetings with each of those Complainants clarified the Complaints and identified the further steps necessary to progress the Investigation, from which the Sethi Investigation Team made a series of requests for further information to YCCC.
Initial responses to those information requests were received from YCCC, following which a forensic IT search of YCCC’s internal IT systems – at the request of the Sethi Investigation – was conducted. The documents produced by those searches – which have been received by the Sethi Investigation Team and have been reviewed in detail – have fed into the Sethi Investigation Team’s ongoing work.
The Sethi Investigation is now predominantly engaged in conducting its remaining interviews with witnesses (i.e. persons other than the complainants) to the matters raised in the active Complaints. On the assumption that the number of complaints being received via the YCCC Whistleblowing Hotline remains at relatively low levels (and subject to any further information being received in respect of the active Complaints) the Sethi Investigation intends soon to begin making final determinations in respect of the active Complaints it is investigating.
The outcomes of those Complaints will be notified to YCCC once finalised.
