SNC-Lavalin will pay $1.5 million and accept certain conditions to settle a corruption case brought against the company by the African Development Bank Group.
The regional development bank says the settlement resolves allegations, which SNC didn’t contest, that former employees of SNC-Lavalin International Inc. ordered illicit payments to public officials to secure two contracts in two African countries.
The development bank said one of the contracts was awarded to SNC in October 2008 to supervise construction of a road and bridge in Mozambique. The other contract was awarded in 2010 to supervise a road upgrade in Uganda.
