Britain-ALSHARQIYA June 18: The convicted British court obligated Basil Al-Jarrah, the former director of Una Oil in Iraq, to pay a fine of "560,000 dollars" after he was sentenced to prison last year for three years and four months for paying a bribe to Iraqi officials.
The Serious Fraud Office in Britain said that the prosecutor in the case confirmed that Basil Al-Jarrah must pay the fine within three months, or else he will face an additional three years in prison.
The former director of Unaoil operations in Iraq admitted paying $17 million in bribes to win contracts to build oil pipelines and build an oil platform and floating platforms in the Gulf.
The court said he profited by obtaining more than three million and 350 thousand pounds from that scheme.
Al-Jarrah is one of four executives convicted in London after a five-year investigation by the Serious Fraud Office.
