AUSTRALIAN FORMER EXECUTIVE CHARGED WITH BRIBERY OFFENCES OVER AFRICAN PLOT

On 23 February, the Brisbane Times reported that Russell Waugh, a former senior executive of infrastructure giant Leighton Holdings, has been charged with conspiring to pay up to $4 million in bribes to high-ranking Tanzanian officials to win an $84 million contract for the Australian company.  The businessman was charged in November over separate allegations that he masterminded a bribery plot on behalf of Leighton in Iraq.  The latest charges are the result of the Australian Federal Police’s longest running and most important corporate bribery probe and which, since 2011, has been targeting Leighton’s offshore business and its suspected payment of multimillion-dollar bribes in the Middle East and Africa.
