Rome, February 15 - The chief executive officer of
Italian energy giant Eni, Paolo Scaroni, on Friday denied any
involvement in a bribery scandal related to energy contracts in
Algeria.
Earlier this month, Scaroni was placed under investigation
for suspected international corruption as part of a probe into
the Algerian contracts of an Eni subsidiary.
"Neither Eni nor I have any involvement in the practices
under investigation," Scaroni said during a conference call to
discuss the company's 2012 earnings.
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.
Earlier in the day, Eni posted a net profit of 7.79 billion
euros for the full year 2012, a 13.5% increase over the previous
year.
Net profit in the final quarter stood at 1.46 billion
euros.
