Rubis CEO Jean Bergeron has been deported from Kenya over Economic sabotage

The government approved deportation orders for Rubis Energie Kenya Managing Director Jean-Christian Bergeron on Wednesday, in retaliation for oil marketers accused of aiding a gasoline crisis by stockpiling and increasing exports despite shortages at domestic retail stores.

According to high-ranking government sources, the Managing Director is charged with economic sabotage, a serious allegation that carries a maximum sentence of ten years in jail and a fine of Sh1 million.
It was unclear whether Mr Bergeron was deported immediately as per the order.
According to sources, the government retaliated against Rubis, which it blames for fueling the problem because it controls such a large portion of the local market. The company is accused of blackmailing the government by demanding larger compensation, despite the fact that a major shipment of its fuel had been imported before world prices spiked.
This comes just one day after the state approved cuts to select oil companies’ import quota allocations as retaliation for aiding the fuel crisis through market distortion. The Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (Epra) was given permission by the Petroleum Ministry on Tuesday to punish some rogue dealers suspected of creating a fake shortage in the domestic market.
