Swedish Prosecutors To Charge Bombardier Employee With Bribery
Swedish prosecutors said on Friday they would charge a worker of Canadian aircraft and train maker Bombardier on suspicion that he and a few others at the company had bribed an Azerbaijani official to secure an agreement worth around $340-million.
The majority of the funding for the undertaking originates from the World Bank, which is directing an audit on the project.
Pavlov, a Bombardier Transportation Sweden AB worker who is on paid leave, was held in March in pre-trial custody to keep him from escaping or messing with evidence.
The Prosecutors said they had acquired evidence in the form of emails after a raid of Bombardier’s operations in Sweden last October.
The Montreal-based company said it is assessing the legitimate filings and supports a total bookkeeping of the facts and circumstances encompassing the project.
Forsberg alleges the Azerbaijan authorities got rewards for having favored the Bombardier contract.
