It is interesting to note that some of the really corrupt African countries, like Nigeria, Ghana and Gabon have not been mentioned. Hmmm...out of sight, out of mind. Makes you wonder if its going to be business as usual.

Can we get the details of the companies in each country. I would be interested in knowing the 8 companies in India that are under investigation as mentioned in the list above. Thanks!
