The London trial of former Alcoa super-agent Victor Dahdaleh ended Tuesday in a complete acquittal after two witnesses from a U.S. law firm involved in the investigation refused to testify and another witness changed his evidence, dealing a huge blow to the already embattled U.K. Serious Fraud Office.
Victor Dahdaleh, the London-based billionaire and former agent for Alcoa, went on trial Tuesday for making ‘corrupt payments’ of more than $65 million to the ex-chairman and chief executive of a Bahrain state-owned aluminum smelter.
Alcoa said Tuesday it has reached a settlement with Aluminium Bahrain B.S.C. ('Alba') to end a civil lawsuit that accused Alcoa of bribing Alba officials and overcharging for the supply of raw materials.
