A 'Whistle Blower' is an employee who submits a good faith complaint or concern to Hafary Group regarding
the detection of any unethical or illegal conduct within Hafary Group. Such conduct includes but is not limited to the following:
A wilful and unauthorised conduct which may cause financial or non-financial loss or damage to the Group, including loss of reputation;
A person abusing his official Hafary position in connection with unauthorised activity for financial or non-financial gain;
A failure to comply with a legal obligation (e.g. breach of a contractual or other common law obligation, statutory duty or requirement, malpractice or breach of a code of conduct); and
A criminal offence (e.g. corruption, fraud, theft).
To achieve and maintain high standards with regard to behaviour at work, Hafary Group's employees are expected
to conduct themselves with integrity, impartiality and honesty. Among other measures to raise standards of
work ethics, Hafary seeks to develop a culture that encourages staff to challenge inappropriate behaviour at
all levels. The objective of this Policy is to provide a process for employees to raise, in confidence and
without fear of retaliation, occurrences of possible wrongdoing or breach of applicable laws, regulations or
policies, for appropriate investigation and action subject to applicable laws. In order to achieve this aim,
Hafary Board will use its best endeavours to ensure that any whistle blower who, in good faith report genuine
concerns about unethical or illegal conduct shall not, to the maximum extent possible, suffer from retaliation,
victimisation, harassment or adverse employment consequences. Hafary does not tolerate any retaliation,
victimisation or harassment (including informal pressure) of a genuine whistle blower and will treat such conduct
as one of misconduct, which if proven, may lead to a dismissal of the parties who carried out such misconduct.
2. PROCEDURES FOR WHISTLE BLOWING
Raising a Concern
Currently, staff can raise their concerns to their immediate supervisor for his attention and where necessary,
escalate their concerns, to their next level supervisors based on the internal organisational hierarchical level i.e.
the Supervisor, the Department Head and CEO.
In general, a whistle blower can raise his concern(s) in confidence using the existing internal
escalation channel i.e Financial Controller or Human Resources Manager. The members of the internal
channel should then raise the concern(s) to CEO (unless it is inappropriate).
Where there is concern that any members of the internal channel might be implicated or if staff deemed
it more appropriate, he can skip the internal escalation channel and raise his concern(s) directly to
the Audit Committee of Hafary Holdings Limited via firstname.lastname@example.org
Manners of Reporting and Investigations
A whistle blower is required to provide specific relevant details and factual information to support his concern(s)
expressed. This is to facilitate meaningful investigation. If insufficient
All submissions will be kept in strict confidence. Depending on the need, CEO or Chairman of the Audit
Committee may commission investigations to be conducted by independent persons, including board
directors, senior management, internal or external auditors or consultants as deem appropriate.
The members of the channel shall also determine the methods and procedures appropriate to investigate,
verify and act in relation to each submission received.
Confidentiality of the identity of the whistle blower will, to the maximum extent allowed by law,
be maintained. In the event where the identity of the whistle blower is to be revealed, Hafary will
discuss this with the whistle blower before revealing the same.
Appropriate action, including disciplinary action may be taken against staff who retaliate against the whistle blower
If, however, a whistle blower makes an allegation frivolously, in bad faith, maliciously or for personal gain, Hafary Board may similarly take appropriate action, including disciplinary action against him.
