Tsamota undertakes investigations from a holistic perspective. For us, investigating is not just characterised by getting out there, picking up some information and drawing a conclusion from it. Tsamota uses multi-disciplined teams, including lawyers, analysts and specialist staff to ensure the full process is properly implemented when it is required. The staff have long experience of conducting successful complex investigations that were challenged in the adversarial systems of the international law courts, and also adjudicated therein.
Tsamota’s staff have investigated the most heinous and egregious crimes that can be committed, including genocide, terrorism, multiple widespread murders and sexual crimes, financial misdemeanours and environmental violations. These investigations have often been undertaken in the most complex of hostile, semi-hostile, conflict and post-conflict environments.
Tsamota’s work ethic in investigations is that they must be thorough, discreet, objective and balanced, professionally executed within a relevant legal framework, and transparently developed from a client’s perspective. Tsamota staff understand what constitutes information and evidence, and their differences, for its investigative work, and insists that all product, results and reports be created as if they would stand the test of judicial scrutiny, whether or not that would be the case for any one project.
