Europlaw Group of South Africa and Menes Konsult of the United States recently unveiled a boutique of new services and business solutions in Africa. The two firms operate a joint-venture partnership out of their offices in Abuja, Nigeria.
Arrangements have been concluded to begin offering polygraph examinations (also known as lie detection tests) through a network of certified polygraph examiners. These services will be offered throughout Africa for pre-employment screenings, embezzlement detection, employee theft detection, fraud detection, corruption detection, infidelity, examination malpractices, drug/alcohol abuse, criminal investigations, business disputes, etc.
In a statement, the principal partner, Attorney N. Jude Menes (United States), remarked that polygraph examinations have been validated and backed by years of scientific research. They observed that accuracy rates of polygraph examinations are better than most common forms of identification/detection, including eye witness identifications and fingerprints.
Attorney Menes stated that polygraph examinations are routinely used in most advanced countries for pre-employment screenings of government employees, law enforcement and security personnel, pharmaceutical company employees, power generation company employees, retail employees, and other sensitive positions where theft, corruption/embezzlement, and abuse of power may occur. He observed that although there are a few polygraph examiners currently in Africa, most of them do not use scientifically validated techniques recognised by world-renowned organisations such as the American Polygraph Association. He stated that examiners within his firm's network were trained in American Polygraph Association-accredited schools and use only techniques recognised by the organisation.
In addition to polygraph examination services, Europlaw Group has signed a strategic partnership agreement with IFX (UK) Limited, an international foreign firm in England and Wales. IFX is approved by the Financial Conduct Authority as an Authorised Electronic Money Institution under the 2011 Electronic Money Regulations to issue electronic money (900517) in the United Kingdom.
