A PwC forensics expert has been specially chosen to help educate and train Nigerian law enforcement teams in the country’s ongoing battle against bribery, corruption and money laundering.Keith McCarthy has held some of the most senior positions combating fraud and economic crimes in the UK and is now regarded as one of the most experienced experts here and abroad in a career spanning over 30 years.
“It isn’t every day that the opportunity to support a fellow nation in its fight against corruption, money laundering and terrorist financing presents itself. The Commonwealth Secretariat approached PwC and I’m very pleased to have been able to work with them in developing the workshop,” he said. “A key part to any training is to educate, inform and share best practice methods, which I will hopefully have the opportunity to do and look forward to assisting the Nigerian authorities in their determination to fight these transnational crimes head on.”
