Irish Kickbacks

The Gardai (Irish police) have confirmed that they are continuing investigations into claims that three Irish companies paid illegal kickbacks to Saddam Hussein in 2001.

The companies were named by a UN investigative committee, in a report published in 2005.

The Irish chapter of anti-corruption group, Transparency International, said it welcomed the Gardai investigation. However, it accused the Irish government of not doing enough to enforce or raise awareness of the crime of bribing foreign public officials.
