Purpose and Scope
Hemus is committed to strong corporate governance and promotes an open and transparent culture, where both employees and external parties who have concern regarding any improprieties or malpractice, particularly in relation to fraud, control and ethics are provided an avenue to express concerns in good faith without fear of reprisal, discrimination or other adverse consequences.
Wrongdoings may include, but are not limited to, the following:
General malpractice such as immoral, illegal or unethical conduct
Fraud, bribery, corruption or theft;
Unlawful, unethical or improper conduct by Hemus employees;
Misuse of funds or assets of Hemus or undisclosed conflicts of interest;
Questionable accounting practices or disclosures;
Intentional error or fraud/misrepresentations in company statements or records;
Suppression or concealment of any information related to the above; and
Channels to Raise Concern
The individual can e-mail the concern to the Groupís Chairman of Audit Committee via email by clicking here. The Group encourages employees and outside parties to put their names to their allegations whenever possible. Concerns or irregularities expressed anonymously are more difficult to act upon effectively but they will be considered, taking into account the seriousness and credibility of the issues raised, and the likelihood of confirming the allegation from attributable sources and information provided.
All concerns or irregularities raised will be treated with confidence by the Audit Committee and every effort will be made to ensure that confidentiality is maintained throughout the process.
