Rio Tinto is seeking to further postpone the payment of Sam Walsh’s last short and long-term incentive bonuses until an investigation into a scandal associated with the Simandou iron ore project is completed. The former CEO was due to receive half of his remaining incentive bonuses at the end of 2018; Rio Tinto had advised in February 2017 that payment of the final bonuses would be deferred. International agencies are investigating Rio Tinto’s payment of $US10.5 million ($15m) to a French consultant in 2011.
