When Canadian engineering company SNC-Lavalin was named in a bribery investigation in Brazil, it suggested that the company had failed to put its governance failures behind it. The probe by Brazilian federal prosecutors into corruption allegations involving the country’s state-owned nuclear plant is likely to add to the Montreal-based company’s woes back in Canada, where prosecutors have accused SNC-Lavalin of funneling millions of dollars to corrupt Libyan officials. The Brazilian probe is now likely to create a new headache for the company back in Canada.
