"Operation Velvet Glove" reconstructs an OLAF investigation in the field of external aid. The idea is to use a (fictional) OLAF case to explain OLAF's work and added value to partners and interested stakeholders. An EU NGO active in developing countries has a world-wide scam in place. It is seeking funds from several donors (double-funding) to carry out work which is not in fact being implemented. Thanks to co-operation with local partners and Member States, OLAF has identified the bosses responsible for implementing the fraud. Today they will be brought to justice. The investigator in charge reminisces about her role uncovering the case.
