An international company operating across Afghanistan received telephone calls from an extortionist purporting to be representing a Taliban cell. He provided confidential details of the business and a threat to murder employees if an extortion payment was not made. The MS Risk team responded with an increased protective security capability and an investigation into who the extortionist could be, both conducted in parallel to negotiations. It became apparent that the incident could be linked to a recent termination of a local employee. The negotiation and investigation processes determined that the Taliban were not behind the threats and no payment was made.
