It has been 2 weeks now going to 3 weeks since the incident happened and yet I have not been informed about the result. A concerned person, who is also working in the company and does not want to reveal his identity, informed me how and when the said incident happened and told me about the gender and the position of the suspect. This concerned person also told me that he has been told not to speak to anyone about it. They were hindered from talking about the incident, although they already know who the suspect is. What's worse is, they allow the suspect to come to work every day as if nothing happened. I was deeply disappointed by the fact how things are going on and whenever I followed it up, they would just tell me the same thing - that I just have to wait for the result. And, whenever I was asking them to provide me a copy of the recorded incident, they would discourage me by telling me if the company would allow me to grant a copy of the recorded incident. What keeps me irritated is the fact that they are treating me like a fool as if I don't know what my rights are. I am the victim here and yet they treat me like I am the villain. There were previous incidents of stealing that were not resolved and instead the victims were the ones to blame and were being told that it’s a negligence on their part. They were being convinced that they may have just forgot where they placed it or they may have just lost it somewhere else. The poor victims cannot react anymore since there was no hard evidence for them to present.
My questions are, how long does it usually take for the company to investigate the said incident? Is there a turnaround time considering the time and date of the said incident? What if they refuse to give me a copy of the recorded incident. Given the fact that they have already enough time to investigate the said incident because of the presence of a recorded video which is considered as hard evidence (prima facie), would they still require more time to resolve the case? Do you find any legal implications about this scenario? I am hoping that you could help me enlighten about this matter. Also, am I right about the prima facie thing. I hope you could give me samples about it. I could give you my email if you want me to just discuss it in private. Thank you. God Bless.
