|By:, SA News Editor

LafargeHolcim (OTCPK:HCMLY) is close to announcing that CEO Eric Olsen will step down following an internal investigation into a plant the firm operated in Syria until September 2014, FT reports.

Human rights groups have alleged the company helped finance terrorism.

The latest blow? LafargeHolcim's chairman stepped down last year amid an integration drive following its merger in 2015.
