On 15th of April 2011 at the District Council, there was the board meeting for renewal of existing employees working contract. Tom was the President of Board together with other four (4) members. Richard, the son of President of the Board was among one of employees and his contract was renewed.
Stephanie whose contract wasn’t renewed wishes to challenge the renewal of Richard’s contract but also wishes that her complaint remain anonymous as she fears for her safety.
On the other hand, Audrey who works at District Council was aware of the relationship between Tom and Richard but wasn’t sure whether she should refer the matter to ICAC.
Norbert who was very nervous and angry on the day of the interview, as he was made to wait for nearly four hours before being interviewed has made certain threatening remarks to one of members of the board in the hope of affecting the decision of the members.
Anil the lawful husband of Sunita, was approached by Sunil, a extremely good friend who gave him the sum of Rs3, 000. Anil accepted the said sum and reassured Sunil that he will get the renewal of his contract as his wife Sunita is a member of Board.
