The DOJ Strikes Out, Again
"Wilbros Group, Inc., a Houston-based oil-services company, agreed to pay $32.3 million in criminal and civil penalties to settle charges that it bribed government officials in Nigeria and Ecuador to get contract, federal prosecutors said Wednesday. ... The Justice Department agreed to defer prosecution of the company under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act for three years, citing the company's cooperation and compliance efforts". WSJ, 15 May 2008.
Another DOJ triumph. Another deferred prosecution. Feh!
