SNC-Lavalin has filed a motion for damages against its former executive vice-president, a former consultant and her company.

The motion against Riadh Ben Aissa, Cynthia Vanier and Vanier Consulting Ltd. alleges they conspired with SNC-Lavalin’s former vice-president, Stephane Roy, to divert and use funds belonging to the construction group without permission.

SNC-Lavalin says it has alleged emails exchanged between Vanier, Roy and Ben Aissa during 2011, in addition to other evidence that would support their claim.

Court granted the company’s request for a seizure before judgment of Ben Aissa’s shares in SNC-Lavalin Inc., which are currently held by the Computershare Trust Company of Canada.

The company wants those shares to be used to satisfy a portion of the damages incurred. It is also seeking additional damages from Ben Aissa, Vanier and her consulting company. A separate claim was previously made against Stephane Roy in April 2013.
