5. APPENDIX I
    SUMMARY OF WHISTLE BLOWING PROCEDURES

Making a disclosure

If you are aware or concerned about misconduct taking place within the Group, you should complete the prescribed form in Appendix II and confidentially forward it to your immediate superior or the management.

If you are unable to raise the matter with your superior or the management, you may make a report to the INED directly at leowincap@gmail.com.

Initial response to the disclosure

Your superior, the management or the Investigating Officer will determine the appropriate manner of investigation, having regard to all the circumstances, including the evidence available, and then inform the Whistle Blower of how the investigation will proceed.

The Whistle Blower shall extend his fullest cooperation in order to give full consideration to the complaint, to establish whether there is a case to answer or any further action is necessary.

Formal Investigation

Where the decision has been made to carry out an investigation, investigation will be carried out with complete independence and confidentiality, and shall be completed in the shortest possible time, given the resources available.

The INED will make a decision based on the findings reported and recommendations.

It should be noted that cases relating to suspected criminal activity, including but not limited to fraud, may be referred to the police at any stage of the investigation and will then be investigated by an external investigator.

Confirmation of the outcome

The Whistle Blower will be informed of the outcome of the investigation and any appropriate action that has been taken to resolve the complaint, subject to any confidentiality clause and/or legal constraints.
