Atea Denmark investigated by police
(DENMARK) On June 9 2015, Atea Denmark was contacted by the Danish police investigating a bribery case. According to the police, two customers in the public sector might have received bribes in the shape of, for example, travels and hotel stays.
In connection to this, the police searched the workplaces of a few employees in Atea Denmark and have been given full access to Atea Denmark's data. It concerns a matter that primarily involves former Atea employees who are now employed in another IT company, and possibly one current Atea employee. No one in Atea's management are held in custody.
It is crucial for Atea to exhibit proper conduct of business and we do not accept bribery. In Atea Denmark, we do everything possible to help the Danish police with the investigation and make ourselves available with all the information we may hold.
The police investigation continues and we support it completely. We will inform further when we are able to do so.
