The importance of knowing the responsibilities for fraud in a audit mission, both as concerns the financial audit mission carried out by the external
public auditors from the Court of Accounts, and the audit carried out by private audit companies, resides in the fact that the audit samples on which
the auditors should base their audit opinion, have to be sufficient and adequate.
