In 2015, the RCMP charged the company, along with its international division, with corruption and fraud in relation with business dealings in Libya.
The RCMP said officials at the company attempted to bribe several public officials in the country, including dictator Moammar Gadhafi, as well as other businesses in Libya. Police also alleged the SNC-Lavalin also lied to Libyan companies to defraud them of nearly $130 million.
If convicted, the company would be barred from bidding on federal projects for 10 years, and current federal contracts would be jeopardized.
