Sometimes the complainant has a case but due to nature of harassment,evidence may not be directly available.
Therefore additional inquiry with others in the work spot may bring out evidence or indications of harassment.
However it should not be a fishing expedition.
Possibility of complaint being false also cannot be ruled out.

The chances of complaint being fake also needs to be looked into in the absence of evidence.
While striving to make genuine equality and free of any harasment at job place,ICC is expected to do deep probes and try to elicit the truth,in cases where there is no direct evidence.Sexual harassment is at time done in private,but signs of the mindset and actions of perpetrator may be noticable or noticed by those who work in close proximity.s
