Canada judge rules SNC Lavalin corruption case can go to trial

MONTREAL, May 29 (Reuters) - A judge in Montreal on Wednesday ruled there is enough evidence to send an SNC Lavalin corruption case to trial, as expected, following efforts by the Canadian construction company to reach a settlement which led to a political scandal engulfing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The major construction and engineering company is looking at ways to protect its business in the event it loses the case. SNC-Lavalin is facing fraud and corruption charges related to allegations that former executives paid bribes to win contracts in Libya under Muammar Gaddafi’s regime, which fell in 2011.
