One of the companies named in $20 million bribery scandal five years ago is currently jostling to grab another contract at the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA).
It was gathered that the company, Dredging International Services (Cyprus) Limited, and 21 others have been shortlisted by the authority for a new contract.
In 2012, Swiss authorities indicted the dredging firm in a $20 million bribery scam and the company was fined 1million Francs.
Also, the company was ordered to refund 36 million Swiss Francs as illegal profits. New Telegraph Investigation revealed that NPA has been “pressurised” by government officials to consider giving a new contract to the company.
