AfDB and SNC-Lavalin settle corruption allegations
“The sanctions imposed under the settlement agreement reflect the level of cooperation provided by the company in the investigation of the matter,” says Anna Bossman, Director of IACD. “SNC-Lavalin has demonstrated that it has undergone significant changes in the past two years, continuously improving ethics and compliance in its operations under a new management. IACD believes in crediting such dedication to ethical business and is at all times willing to resolve amicably instances of sanctionable practices with companies that show a sincere commitment to integrity by collaborating in the resolution of allegations and enhancing their compliance regimes.”
SNCLI was contracted in October 2008 to supervise the construction of the 66-kilometre road and bridge construction project between Marrupa and Litunde in Niassa Province, Mozambique. In December 2010, the company was awarded another contract by the Uganda National Roads Authority to supervise the upgrading of the 75-km Kazo-Kamwenge road running from Nyakahita to Kamwenge in Uganda.
