Prosecutors said three former senior executives at PKN Orlen, Poland’s biggest refiner, were detained on Tuesday, including its former CEO, on suspicion of mismanaging resources.
The former CEO, named only as Jacek K. under Polish privacy laws, was the head of state-run refiner from 2008 to 2015.
Prosecutors said the three were detained after an extensive probe that included checks of decision-making processes at Orlen by Poland’s Central Anti-Corruption Bureau (CBA) in 2017.
Anti-corruption investigators last month detained four people suspected of orchestrating a deal harming state-owned oil refiner Lotos.
Lotos said at the time that the detentions by CBA officers concerned a case dating back to 2011.
