SNC-Lavalin claims seizure before judgment against one former employee

SNC-Lavalin claims seizure before judgment against one former employee 
MONTREAL, July 11, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - SNC-Lavalin (TSX: SNC) has filed a 
motion for damages against its former Executive Vice-President, Riadh Ben 
Aissa, a former consultant, Cynthia Vanier and her company, Vanier 
Consulting Ltd. 
The motion filed by SNC-Lavalin against Ben Aissa, Vanier and Vanier 
Consulting Ltd., allege that these parties conspired with SNC-Lavalin's former 
Vice-President, Stephane Roy, to commit illegal acts for funds belonging to 
SNC-Lavalin Inc. were diverted and used without permission. Among other 
evidence to support this claim, the company has alleged emails exchanged 
between Vanier, Roy and Ben Aissa during 2011. 
The court granted the company's request for a seizure before judgment of Riadh 
Ben Aissa's shares in SNC-Lavalin Inc. currently held by the Computershare 
Trust Company of Canada. The company is seeking that these shares be used to 
satisfy a portion of the damages incurred. The company is also seeking further 
damages from Ben Aissa, Vanier and her consulting company. A separate claim 
was previously made against Stephane Roy in April 2013.
