Security forces in Hassi Messaoud (south of Algeria) opened an investigation on a $45-million-deal won by an Italian company led by “Jews”. Algerian Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal received a report from a number of executives at the national energy group Sonatrach.
The report says wrongdoings were committed in the implementation of a recent ministerial instruction. The executives accused Sonatrach of smuggling currency to Israeli investment-related sides.
A few months ago, geological surveillance equipments were bought from an Italian company with the mediation of its representative who comes from Tunisia and manages the money of businessmen in Djerba (Tunisia) who have Jewish origins.
More than $32 million was transferred to the Italian company’s banking account in return for the equipments.
Earlier in November, a similar deal was won by a Tunisian company. Sellal Monday assigned inspectors to work on it.
Sonatrach’s executives also said the Prime Minister’s instructions were not implemented and social equivalence was not created in economic environment.
A human resources director was appointed without conducting an administrative inquiry and salaries were fixed for people who do not exercise any job at Sonatrach.
