Italy’s tax police have searched the offices of oil major, Eni, as part of a probe into alleged corruption in the Republic of Congo, two sources familiar with the matter said on Friday.

The sources said the searches had occurred in past days.

Eni was not immediately available for a comment. The oil company said last year it was being investigated by Milan prosecutors for international corruption relating to agreements signed by its Congo subsidiary with the Congo Republic’s Ministry of Hydrocarbons in 2013 to 2015.
