Former SNC-Lavalin Executive Sentenced To 8.5 Years In Prison

Sami Bebawi was found guilty of fraud and corruption.

Former SNC-Lavalin VP Sami Bebawi is heading to prison.

He was sentenced to 8.5 years in prison for fraud and corruption.

He had been found guilty of multiple crimes, including bribing officials in Libya, and taking millions for himself as he laundered the proceeds of crime.

A key part of the charges centered on SNC Lavalin’s interactions with the son of former Libyan dictator Saadi Gadhafi.

SNC-Lavalin was at the centre of one of Canada’s biggest political scandals, when Justin Trudeau fired Jody Wilson-Raybould after she pushed back on giving the company a sweetheart deal to avoid prosecution.
