Abstract: 

On December 18, 2019, SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. settled criminal charges concerning the work it did in Libya with its construction division, pleading guilty to one count of fraud and ending a long-standing scandal that harmed its reputation and involved Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his cabinet.[1] The plea agreement required the construction division to plead guilty to a charge of fraud over $5,000 and pay a $280 million penalty over a five-year period.  The division is also subject to a three-year probation order.
