BRIBES, KICKBACKS AND INSIDER DEALING – INVESTIGATION ACCUSES BELGIAN BIOMETRIC DOCUMENTS COMPANY

On 9 September, an article from OCCRP accused Semlex, which supplies biometric documents such as passports and driving licenses to governments and international bodies of using bribes, kickbacks and insider dealing to secure contracts around the world, while inflating the cost of vital documents for ordinary citizens while lining the pockets of wealthy elites.  OCCRP is said to have obtained inside information taken from a leak of more than 160,000 internal documents.
