Former Unaoil managers convicted in Britain of Iraq bribery

LONDON, July 13 (Reuters) - Two former managers of Monaco-based energy consultancy Unaoil have been convicted of bribing Iraqi officials to clinch lucrative oil projects as the war-ravaged country tried to boost exports after the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003.

A London jury found British-Lebanese Ziad Akle, Unaoil's former Iraq territory manager, and Stephen Whiteley, a British former manager for Iraq, Kazakhstan and Angola, guilty after a marathon 19 days of deliberations. (Reporting by Kirstin Ridley; Editing by Jon Boyle)
