Padma Bridge scam: Latest detail in Canadian paper
A Canadian paper has given a graphic detail on the Padma Bridge Project corruption conspiracy in a report published yesterday under headline, 'SNC-Lavalin in Bangladesh: World Bank sees 'conspiracy.' Before Syed Abdul Hossain would consider approving SNC-Lavalin as the official overseer, he demanded to meet a "sada," or white-skinned, executive. So a senior vice-president Kevin Wallace, flew to Dhaka with another SNC official, Ramesh Shah, where they sat down with the minister. After the meeting, World Bank investigators allege, two things happened: With the help of a code, Mr. Shah jotted down how much would go to the minister and to a senior bureaucrat as a bribe.
