Montreal, Canada based Ultra Electronics Forensic Technology provides technology and solutions that help law enforcement and border security agencies around the world prevent and solve crime.
One of the companies customers is Canada’s Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).
Recently, the RCMP announced that Ultra Electronics Forensic Technology Inc. (UEFTI) and former four executives (Robert Andrew Walsh, Philip Timothy Heaney, René Bélanger, and Michael McLean) were each charged with bribery and fraud under the Corruption of Foreign Public Officials Act (CFPOA) and the Criminal Code in connection with an investigation by the RCMP into international corruption.
According to the release, “it is alleged that the corporation and the accused individuals directed local agents in the Philippines to bribe foreign public officials to influence and expedite a multi-million-dollar contract.”
The CFPOA is Canada’s version of the FCPA.
