Apr 8, 2018-

Italy’s scandal-hit energy giant Eni said on Friday it was being probed by the Italian authorities for suspected corruption in Republic of Congo. The daily Corriere Della Sera reported that Eni was being investigated over payment of suspected bribes when oil licences in Congo-Brazzaville were being renewed. Eni confirmed to AFP that on Thursday the Milan prosecutor’s office requested “documents related to certain activities in the Congo in 2009 and 2014”. “The request follows two others received in 2017,” its spokesman said, adding that the firm had already handed over the documents and was innocent of any misconduct.
