B) Summary of Fraud and Corruption Control Strategies:

  1. Scope of Internal Auditor’s Work:

The internal auditor of the MONA Relief Organization is responsible for continuously implementing and controlling this policy, coordinating investigations by the MONA Relief Organization when reporting fraud and corruption excessively.

  • Assistance to the Internal Auditor:

The management of the MONA Relief Organization and department managers provide all necessary assistance to the internal auditor, and the internal auditor reports directly to the administrative body head.

  • Fraud Risk Management:

The MONA Relief Organization must conduct periodic reviews and assessments of fraud risks and the strategies applied to confront and combat fraud, as per Article 3 below.

  • Fraud Awareness:

The MONA Relief Organization provides all employees with appropriate and relevant information to raise awareness about fraud, including a copy of this policy, when they commence their duties with the MONA Relief Organization or whenever possible thereafter.

  • Fraud Detection:

The MONA Relief Organization implements a system aimed at promptly identifying cases of fraud and corruption in the event that prevention strategies fail. This includes (1) examining administrative and operational processes and financial transactions conducted and (2) analyzing management accounts reports.

  • Reporting Fraud:

Cases of discovered fraud within or against the MONA Relief Organization are reported to senior management through appropriate channels. The organization is committed to providing alternative means for employees to report concerns related to behaviors contrary to ethics or illegal activities. This necessitates methods and channels through which employees or others with allegations can report their suspicions.

C) Procedures for Investigation and Prosecution of Fraud:

The final outcome is subject to disciplinary actions related to any fraud or corruption, and the decision rests with the disciplinary committee in coordination with the relevant manager. This may include issuing a warning to the employee or any other person within the organization, terminating their services, demoting them, imposing a penalty, or reducing their seniority.
