The office of Switzerland’s attorney general is helping authorities in Oman investigate alleged corruption in the Gulf sultanate’s national oil company and oil ministry, a Swiss law enforcement source familiar with the matter said.
Swiss authorities are involved because transactions related to the probe involved Swiss financial institutions, the source said without identifying any of the institutions.
