Foreign Corrupt Practice Act issues can be the tip of the iceberg with a company and its executives also engaging in other improper conduct. Such was the case in an enforcement action American Bank Note Holographics and its executive Joshua Cantor.
This 2001 criminal information against Joshua Cantor (during the relevant time period President or Executive Vice President and General Manager of American Bank Note Holographics, Inc. (ABNH), a subsidiary of American Banknote Corporation) is primarily a securities / accounting fraud matter.
However, Cantor was also charged with count of conspiracy to violate the FCPA’s anti-bribery provisions.
