Glencore says Swiss Attorney General has opened probe over its DRC dealings

The Attorney General of Switzerland has begun criminal investigations into Glencore’s business practices in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), the company said on Friday June 19.

Baar, Switzerland-headquartered Glencore said it had been informed today that the investigation had commenced due to “failure to have the organizational measures in place to prevent alleged corruption,” it said.
