Lindsey Mitchell has told Fairfax Media, The Huffington Post and the BBC’s Panorama program that he bribed senior officials in the Gaddafi regime on behalf of, and while working for, Unaoil in mid 2009.
He has also confessed to the FBI and British authorities, saying he will testify against Unaoil.
Mitchell further says he worked alongside a Libyan businessman who was involved in the security contract to guard the US consulate in Benghazi. In September 2012, the embassy was attacked by members of extremist group Ansar al-Sharia, resulting in the death of US ambassador Christopher Stevens and one other diplomat.
Mitchell claims the Libyan businessman was corrupt. The businessman denies the claim.
