World Bank Integrity Investigation Department

Dear Sir

Thank you for your letter below, but quite frankly, I do not believe you have taken my allegations of widespread fraud seriously, never mind investigated thoroughly as you claim. You didn't even have the common courtesy to sign your letter.

It beggars belief how you can now claim the World Bank have investigated my fraud claims "thorougly", when you have not asked me one single question, you have not contacted me by telephone or in person and you now claim a thorough investigations took place.

At best, your letter is unadulterated hogwash or it is part of wider conspiracy to pervert the course of justice and cover up serious economical crimes within the World Bank/IFC, I suggest the latter.

My allegations of such widespread fraud are not isolated to the Chad/Cameroon Pipeline; they were directed to the Philippines also. However, the World Bank banned contractors list of 500 plus would suggest your procurement department might be seen by some people to be guilty of dubious behaviour.

I now wish my complaint to be elevated to the President of the World Bank please.

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield

Integrity Communication #32

Dear Mr. Dransfield,

We acknowledge receipt of your recent emails of May 8, May 12 and May 13, 2014 regarding your longstanding concerns on the Chad/Cameroon pipeline project. The allegations you previously raised in 2002 were thoroughly reviewed by INT at the time and the matter was closed. We again reviewed your report in February 2014 and found no basis to open an investigation as IBRD and IFC funds are no longer involved in the Chad/Cameroon project at this time, and the statute of limitations has expired. The information you provide here now is neither new nor directly related to the Chad/Cameroon project. We consider the matter closed and will not reopen the review.

Please do not "reply" to this message. If you have questions or further information regarding this matter, please send us a report referencing the Integrity Communication number you previously received. The additional information can be sent via the Online Integrity Complaint Form here. This form can also be found on the Integrity Vice Presidency website at:
