PARIS (Reuters) – A Paris court on Friday fined French oil group Total (TOTF.PA) 500,000 euros for bribing foreign public officials in a case related to contracts in Iran in 1997.
Total was accused of paying some $30 million in briberies under the cover of a consultancy contract to facilitate a deal for the South Pars gas field.
