Lithuania: Lithuania drops €5 mil bribery probe into Alstom deal

Lithuanian prosecutors said Monday that they had dropped an investigation into allegations that a former energy official took bribes from French engineering giant Alstom owing to a lack of evidence.

Alstom has faced corruption allegations over projects in a number of countries and was notably fined by the US in 2015 for bribing government officials in the Bahamas, Egypt, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan and elsewhere.

The Lithuanian investigation centred around claims the company had bribed officials between 2004 and 2009 to win contracts.
