Webinar: Deferred Prosecution Agreements – a solution to prosecuting backlog?

27 July 2021 @ 12:00 pm 1:30 pm

FTI Consulting South Africa and Corruption Watch recently co-authored an article titled Addressing Corruption in South Africa in which we argued, inter alia, that consideration should be given to allowing criminal offenders to self-disclose and subject themselves to administrative penalties to avoid criminal prosecution through the mechanism of deferred prosecution agreements (DPAs).

Join us for a session hosted by Petrus Marais to hear more from experts on the possibility of using DPAs to tackle corruption:

Adv. Hermione Cronje, South African prosecutor and the head of the investigating directorate in the Office of the National Director of Public Prosecution
Adv. Kate Hofmeyr, evidence leader at the Zondo commission
Adv. Gilbert Swats, forensic consultant and former deputy director of public prosecutions
Karam Singh, head of Legal & Investigations at Corruption Watch
