The report said in the investigation and prosecution of specific cases of suspected or alleged cases of corruption and corruption-related offences, the Office first engages in intelligence gathering or “pre-investigation” to determine whether it should open an investigation into a matter.
The Special Prosecutor then directs the opening of a preliminary investigation after determining that the matter falls within the scope of the Office’s mandate.

Where it is determined that the Office has probative evidence to meet the standard of proof beyond a reasonable doubt, the Special Prosecutor or an authorised officer directs the institution of criminal proceedings.
