On Sept. 7, 2005 it was revealed by the Independent Inquiry into the Oil-for-Food scandal that Strong had received a $1-million cheque from North Korean lobbyist Tongsun Park for the acquisition of shares in Cordex...

Annan came under fresh scrutiny a day after The Associated Press reported that two senior investigators with the Independent Inquiry Committee...

Shareholders in Cordex Petroleums Inc. also included CSL Group Inc., the holding company owned by Prime...
