Robert Danino, the former general counsel of the World Bank, said bank chief Paul Wolfowitz “acted incorrectly” in arranging a hefty salary increase for his girlfriend, Shaha Riza. He also stated that he “did not learn of these actions prior to my departure from the bank in January 2006.” On Monday, Wolfowitz said that that he assumed Danino was aware of the package he put together for Riza.
