The Audit Bureau has stated that in 2015 it had referred 102 cases involving 483 people . . .[restrict]for various infringements and irregularities for further action by other competent bodies such as the Public Prosecutor’s Office (PPO). This included a case involving Norwegian company Yara.
The information was revealed in the Audit Bureau’s 565-page 2015 Annual Report released last week.
The Audit Bureau reported that some of the actions it took included the suspension of personnel from work, removal from work positions, the recovery of illegally gained assets and referral to the Administrative Control Authority.
As an example of such actions, the Audit Bureau report cited, amongst others, the case of the relative of a former Libyan Oil Minister (which the report did not name) involved in an investment project that involved Norwegian company Yara. It cited the case for abuse of position and manipulation.
The report said that the case had been referred to PPO in coordination with the Libyan Foreign Ministry and the Norwegian judicial authorities for further action. [/restrict]
