Ex-SNC-Lavalin exec sues
A former SNC-Lavalin executive who says he was fired because of his whistle-blowing is now suing the firm.
Joseph Salim says SNC-Lavalin let him go because he denounced secret commissions paid to secure a government contract in Angola. Salim is seeking 1.2 million dollars in compensation.
Meantime, The Globe and Mail is reporting that the Mounties have searched the Montreal home of another former SNC-Lavalin executive, Sami Bebawi. He oversaw the company's rapid expansion in North Africa and the Middle East from 1998 to 2006.
The time frame suggests the corruption investigation is going further back than previously thought.
