The Paul Volcker Report made public a list of corporations and politicians across the world who benefited from an elaborate scam devised by now deposed Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein to make money for his regime and presumably himself from the United Nations' Oil For Food Programme.

The Volcker Committee -- set up by the United Nations to inquire into the Oil For Food Programme -- named K Natwar Singh, who resigned from the Manmohan Singh Cabinet on December 6, the Congress party and several Indian companies as beneficiaries of the scandal.
