Libyan Sweetheart deals in Scotland?

This is an extract from Wikileaks #cablegate which suggests there exists a powerful Libyan expatriate community in Scotland and an unnamed energy company owned by Libyan Company 19 Petroleum.

“the internet-based publication Libya al-Yown distributed information tracing a large number of sweetheart deals to One-Nine’s Oil and Gas division XXXXXXXXXXXX in Scotland, home to a well-connected Libyan expatriate community. It is believed that millions of dollars are distributed to politically connected Libyans and Libyan expatriates via the XXXXXXXXXXXX”

Is a “sweetheart deal” a euphemism for corruption?
