Congress continues probe into Compass

Congress continues probe into Compass

Internal investigation not enough to satisfy House of Representatives

Probes into the relationship between under-fire caterer Compass and the
United Nations are to continue after the US Congress refused to accept the
findings of the company’s own internal investigation.

Compass called in Ernst & Young and law firm Freshfields Bruckhaus
Deringer last year to look into allegations of bribery at subsidiary Eurest
Support Services, accompany that supplied UN peacekeepers and is accused of
using leaked details of UN tenders to win contracts.

That investigation is now complete and though it uncovered ‘serious
irregularities, in the dealings at Eurest, the group said the problems were
limited to just three employees including the former head of the subsidiary,
Peter Harris.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Congress was not yet ready to
confirm the accuracy of the internal report and wanted to know if anyone else at
Compass was knew about what was happening at Eurest.
