CALGARY - A Calgary energy firm is to appear in court on a charge of corrupting a foreign official.
Griffiths Energy International revealed last week that it had been charged over its activities in the African country of Chad.
The charges stemmed from an internal investigation the company conducted last fall into consulting contracts it had issued in the country.
Those contracts were with two entities owned and controlled by a foreign public official and his spouse.
Griffiths turned over the results of its investigation to the RCMP.
The company has said it expects a negotiated settlement to the matter.
