The American investigation (very light investigation) was closed due to
the slope of the Italian trials and the Dutch proceedings on
investigations into the deals. But the DOJ moved correctly.
Eni wrote something else entirely in the statement, which they then
modified hours later and It’s obvious not everyone plays fair, says Olanrewaju Suraju
Chairman of HEDA
The decision of DoJ is tantamount to suspension of investigation pending
the conclusion of prosecution in Milan. The DoJ could ultimately
prosecute the company if dissatisfied with decision of Milan trial or
permanently closed the case if the company is convicted on same
indictments as established by the DoJ.
The celebration purported in the statement is misleading and premature.
