SNC-Lavalin, subsidiaries charged with corruption, fraud in Libyan business probe

Written By doni icha on Kamis, 19 Februari 2015 | 22.39

SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. says it will enter a plea of not guilty after the RCMP announced today that the Montreal-based company and two of its divisions have been charged with corruption and fraud.

The divisions are SNC-Lavalin Construction Inc. and its subsidiary, SNC-Lavalin International Inc., police said.

"The alleged criminal acts surfaced as part of the ongoing criminal investigation into the company's business dealings in Libya," the RCMP said in a release.

RCMP allege that between August 2001 and September 2011, the company and its subsidiaries gave almost $47.9 million to Libyan government officials to use their positions to influence government decisions.

Police also allege that during the same time period, the company defrauded the Libyan government and other entities of "property, money or valuable security or service" worth almost $129.8 million.

Three former SNC-Lavalin employees previously were charged by the RCMP in the probe, which began in 2011.

SNC-Lavalin responded to Thursday's police announcement by saying the charges laid against the businesses are without merit, and it will plead not guilty in the interest of its employees, client, investors and stakeholders.

"The charges stem from the same alleged activities of former employees from over three years ago in Libya, which are publicly known, and that the company has co-operated on with authorities since then," SNC-Lavalin Group president and CEO Robert Card said in a release.

RCMP Assistant Commissioner Gilles Michaud said corruption of foreign officials undermines good governance and sustainable economic development.

"The charges laid today demonstrate how the RCMP continues to support Canada's international commitments and safeguard its integrity and reputation," Michaud said in a release.
