In 2022, allegations of bribery were added. In exchange for bribes, a Saudi prince would award the metro project, a contract worth 1 billion euros, to Strukton. Three years earlier, in 2019, Strukton was ordered by a Saudi court to pay compensation of 25 million euros to a local intermediary. He would receive that money if Strukton won the job in Riyadh. But the mediator could whistle at those pennies when the construction company was commissioned by the Saudi prince.
