2017 saw the first case of joint operations of the ICAC and the SFC by which the enforcement teams of both departments raided the offices of several listed companies as well as the homes of their senior executives. Although the ICAC and the SFC have a common goal to combat corporate fraud, their respective investigative powers are not identical and there are also vital differences in the way the search is conducted by each of them. Through this seminar the speaker will share his tips on handling the searches conducted by the ICAC and the SFC respectively with a view to affording maximum protection to the persons or companies subject to the searches.
In this seminar, the following elements will be addressed by speaker:
· What powers are conferred by a search warrant?
· How is a search conducted?
· Can objections be raised to the articles or documents being seized?
· Can the “suspects” be questioned on the spot?
· Are the persons on the premises bound to cooperate?
· What are the possible grounds to challenge a search warrant?
· How are interviews conducted following the search?
