Siemens Debarred in Italy : Corruption Case


In April 2004 an Italian judge barred German electronics group Siemens AG from conducting business relations with Italian public administration bodies for the period of one year.

The decision was taken in the framework of the investigation on suspected cases of corruption involving Siemens and Italy's Enelpower, a unit of local energy group Enel.

Later in May 2004, SIEMENS then reported that a judge's order banning it from dealing with Italy's state-owned firms and public bodies had been amended to apply only to gas turbines.
