Recently, some Chinese media reports that “FBI Raid Los Angeles City Hall and LA Department of Water and Power (DWP), Greenland and Oceanwide are both involved of bribing”. The report alleges that “Greenland is being suspected of bribing the Los Angeles City government officials”. Such allegation is false which is entirely inconsistent with the facts of this investigation. It causes severe damages to the reputation of Greenland USA and our projects and huge financial loss. Therefore, we make the following statement:
1. The “FBI raids at DWP, L.A. City Hall” reported on LA Times on July 22 and 23 were not related to Greenland USA and its projects.
2. As for the FBI’s investigation of certain government officials at the City of Los Angeles including Jose Huizar, council member of the 14th District of the City of Los Angeles, Greenland USA is not a target of that investigation. No one is alleging that Greenland USA or any of our employees has done anything illegal or improper.
We will take all appropriate legal action against the organizations and individuals who release and disseminate such false and misrepresenting reports or mislead the public about our company or our projects. We will also reserve our rights to pursue legal remedies and take further legal actions to protect our rights and interests.
