Vinge’s Forensic, Risk & Compliance Group assists Tele2

May 24, 2019

Tele2 has decided to leave Kazakhstan and has today published the terms and conditions governing the transaction.

In connection with the exit, Tele2 has issued the extensive report "Tele2 Kazakhstan - Exit Report on Ethics and Compliance". The Exit Report is part of Tele2’s obligation to act ethically, to fight corruption and be transparent to shareholders and the market. 
 
Vinge’s Forensic, Risk & Compliance Group has assisted Tele2 in conjunction with the company’s analysis and reporting of the anti‑corruption work which Tele2 has conducted since it arrived in Kazakhstan. In the Exit Report, Tele2 describes its method of identifying and addressing corruption risks. This method is based on Vinge’s formulated best practice – a compliance programme consisting of 10 steps which companies and organizations should implement in order to prevent bribery and corruption in their business operations. 

“It is very satisfying to work with a company which takes the risks of corruption seriously. It is not possible to prevent everything, although you can establish a framework and procedures which minimize the risk significantly”,

says Mia Falk, Head of Forensic, Risk & Compliance at Vinge.

Vinge’s team consisted of Mia Falk and Hayaat Ibrahim.
