The Polish power and telecommunications company Elektrim SA has been in bankruptcy proceedings since 2007. It still controls, (and owns an estimated 47% of), Zespol Elektrowni Patnow-Adamow-Konin SA (“ZE PAK”). ZE PAK generates about 8.5% of all of Poland’s electricity, as was just mentioned by “Enea, ‘Several’ Others Bid for Polish Power Group PAK (Update2)“.
Elektrim is also the subject of a criminal investigation by Warsaw prosecutors who have uncovered alleged irregularities believed to have occurred between 1999 and 2002. They claim that Elektrim may have failed to perform trade agreements and conceivably caused property loss in violation of Article 296 paragraphs 1 & 3 of Poland’s Criminal Code.
These same prosecutors additionally appear to be focused on U.S. businesswoman Barbara J. Lundberg, who had been Elektrim’s president from 1999 until she was fired in 2001. Time Magazine’s “Mrs. Big’s Big Deals” published in 2000, had characterized Ms. Lundberg as “one of Warsaw’s most influential executives“. The Warsaw prosecutors meanwhile claimed via their March 21, 2006 letter rogatory pictured below, that there were “changes in the existing profile of the company’s business” after Ms. Lundberg became Elektrim’s president:
