The admission comes after sources close to the case said in January that the French government had filed a legal complaint against Lafarge for buying oil in Syria to power the now-closed Jalabiya factory, in violation of sanctions. …
The complaint, which was filed in late September 2016, follows a report in French daily Le Monde saying Lafarge entered into deals with armed groups in Syria, including the Islamic State [ISIS] group, to protect its business interests there, the sources said.
From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

FRENCH-SWISS cement giant LafargeHolcim admitted yesterday its Syrian operation made “unacceptable” deals with armed extremists.
The group said in a statement that an internal investigation had established that Lafarge’s local branch in Syria provided funds to armed groups in 2013 and 2014 to guarantee safe passage for company employees and supply the plant it operated.
French authorities launched a probe into the world’s largest cement maker last year after the Finance Ministry filed a complaint.
French NGO Sherpa also accused Lafarge of financing terrorism and having commercial relations with Isis.
The company said its local subsidiary had paid “third parties” to make deals with a number of armed groups, including some “targeted by sanctions.”
But it claimed its investigation could not establish “with certainty” which groups ultimately received the funds.
“In hindsight, the measures taken in order to continue the plant’s activity were unacceptable,” it said.
