A strange scenario, scrutiny alert, and Odebrecht related. It’s all here in the Friday roundup.
A Strange Scenario
FCPA enforcement actions have concerned some interesting family relationships. Husband/Wife as co-defendants. Brother/Sister as co-defendants. Father/Son as co-defendants.
But a wife bribing a husband? To my knowledge, this has never occurred in an FCPA enforcement action.
Until, that is … this week’s FCPA (and related) enforcement action against various individuals in relation to Griffiths Energy International’s bribery scheme involving Chad. (See here for the prior post).
