UFS orders forensic investigation at computer services division
2005-11-11

(Statement by Prof Frederick Fourie, Rector and Vice-Chancellor of the UFS)

Two Deputy Directors from the University of the Free State’s (UFS) Computer Services Division have been put on compulsory leave pending a further investigation.  This was announced today by the UFS senior management.

This action is related to an earlier internal investigation ordered by the UFS senior management after possible irregularities at the division were brought under their attention.

The findings of this internal investigation were handed to the Commercial Branch of the South African Police Services (SAPS) and a group of forensic auditors for further investigation.

The SAPS confiscated equipment and documentation from the offices of the Computer Services Division. 

Equipment and documentation were also confiscated from two companies in Bloemfontein which are related to the case.

This process arouse out of the commitment of the UFS to good and transparent corporate management.  Any irregularities are thoroughly investigated.  Strict action will be taken against any staff or students who are found guilty of wrongful behaviour.
