Specifically, the Court of Appeal of Milan today pronounced its appeal judgement fully upholding the appeal of Saipem S.p.A. and of the individuals charged (including some former managers of Saipem who all left the Company between 2008 and 2012), stating, among other things, the absence of the administrative offence of Saipem SpA because of the inexistence of the alleged facts, revoking the confiscation of the price of the offence that was pronounced in the First Instance by the Court of Milan, pursuant to article 19 of Legislative Decree 231/2001.
The Court of Milan of First Instance had convicted, amongst others, the Company to pay the pecuniary sanction of 400,000 euro, as it is held liable for the administrative offence pursuant to Articles 5, 6, 7 and 25 paragraphs 3 and 4 of Legislative Decree 231/2001, with reference to the offence of international corruption.
