Programa Petróleo por Alimentos - Novos Desenvolvimentos
O Instapundit tem seguido as investigações sobre a corrupção no programa "Petróleo por Alimentos". Eis os ultimos desenvolvimentos:
[E]vidence suggests U.N. officials abused the program, enriching themselves, Saddam and favored foreign companies. The Iraqi Governing Council has hired accountants and lawyers to investigate Iraqi documents it says provide proof of corruption and fraud in the oil-for-food program.
Iraq's media have cited at least 270 suspects, including French and Russian firms, a senior U.N. official and a company linked to the son of U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan. Last month, a U.S. congressional investigation estimated that Saddam siphoned $10 billion or more from the program in kickbacks and bribes.
