Issuance of Sanctions Board Decision No. 60

Pursuant to Sanctions Board Decision No. 60  issued in Sanctions Case No. 170, the Sanctions Board imposes (i) a debarment with conditional release on Development and Relief Corporation b.v. (also known as DRC b.v.) (the “Respondent Firm”), Development and Relief Corporation International b.v. (also known as DRC International b.v.) (the “Respondent Firm International”), and Mr. Frank Rozestraten (the “Respondent  Director”); (ii) a debarment on Mr. Dennis van Vogelpoel (the “Respondent Commercial Manager”); and (iii) a reprimand, by means of a letter of reprimand to be publicly posted for a six-month period, on a fifth respondent (the “Respondent Co-Owner”). These sanctions are imposed for corrupt, fraudulent, and obstructive practices in connection with procurement processes in multiple Bank-financed projects. Pursuant to the same decision, the Sanctions Board finds insufficient evidence to conclude that it is more likely than not that the sixth respondent in this case (the “Respondent Project Manager”) engaged in the alleged obstructive practices, and therefore declares that the sanctions proceedings against the Respondent Project Manager are terminated.
