Australian police probe Sundance over Congo corruption allegations

Sundance Resources said on Thursday Australian police are investigating allegations that the company may have bribed politicians in Congo Republic to win permits to pursue a major iron-ore project.

Sundance said the allegations dated back to meetings held between 2006 and 2008, as reported by Fairfax Media, and had been mainly raised in a case last year where Perth geologist David Porter successfully sued Sundance for failing to pay him for helping the company obtain its mining permits.
