Milan, February 7 - The chief executive officer of
Italian energy company ENI, Paolo Scaroni, has been placed under
investigation for suspected international corruption as part of
a probe into alleged bribery in relation to energy contracts in
Algeria.
Investigators are looking into an alleged 200-million-euro
backhander given in exchange for contracts for ENI subsidiary
Saipem, Europe's largest oil contractor by market value.
Judicial sources claim Scaroni met with an intermediary for
a Hong Kong company charged with collecting the bribes on behalf
of Algerian officials.
The company chief has denied any wrongdoing, saying ENI had
"nothing to do" with the affair.
Seven other people are being investigated in relation to
the probe, including numerous current and former Saipem
managers.
ENI shares closed down 4.62% on the Milan exchange on
Thursday as a result of the revelations.
