Berry is being investigated over alleged corrupt payments to secure contracts for a different company in another African country, Nigeria.
The Serious Fraud Office (SFO), in collaboration with Australian police, has made a series of arrests and raids during their inquiry into alleged multimillion bribes to Nigerians. Berry rejects the allegations, saying he is a \”businessman of good reputation and standing\”.
I wouldn\’t state this categorically, but I\’d certainly float the siggestion that there\’s not been a contract awarded in Nigeria without bribery in, oooh, 30 years?
As with working in Russia, it\’s simply part of the cost of doing business there.
