U.S. DoJ Indicts Four Israelis in African Bribery Case in FBI Sting
Quote:U.S. indicts four Israelis in international bribery case

Last Update: 20/01/2010

The United States Justice Department indicted four Israeli businessmen Tuesday for allegedly attempting to bribe the defense minister of an African country in order to secure a multimillion-dollar contract to supply his country with military equipment. 18 other businessmen were indicted in the same case.

The U.S. Department of Justice identified the Israelis as Ofer Paz, 50 - the president and chief executive officer of an Israeli company, Paz Logistics, that acts as sales agent for companies in the law enforcement and military products industries; Haim Geri, 50 - the president of a North Miami Beach, Fla., company that serves as a sales agent for companies in the law enforcement and military products industries; Yochanan R. Cohen, aka Yochi Cohen, 47 - the chief executive officer of a San Francisco company that manufactures security equipment, including body armor and ballistic plates; and Israel Wissler, former CEO of the company Ayit which sold equipment to the Israeli Defense Forces.

Twenty-one of the businessmen, including the Israelis, were arrested in Las Vegas on the eve of a major annual military equipment sales show, following a two-and-a-half-year FBI undercover sting operation.

The defendants allegedly agreed to pay a 20 percent commission to an undercover FBI agent who posed as the African minister.

The indictments allege conspiracy and substantive violations of the corrupt practices act and conspiracy to engage in money laundering.

The charges relating to the corrupt practices act carry a maximum five-year prison sentence on conviction. The maximum sentence for money laundering conspiracy is 20 years.

The case is the largest single investigation and prosecution of individuals in the history of the 1977 U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, which bars bribery of foreign government officials. It is also the first large-scale use of an undercover operation in enforcing the corrupt practices act.

I think this line is possibly more significant than the line you emphasized. Wonder what the accompanying fines are for that statute? I bet Israeli merc firms have deep pockets! I predict little to no jail time.

The entire article bears highlighting.

This is probably a case of some lower level zionists not playing ball and getting thrown under the bus. Another possibility (however unlikely) is that some just individuals in the FBI and the DoJ were thrown a bone or actually were persistent enough to bring this about. But maybe this is a sign of faction wars within the elite structure, there is division and they are not as united as a lot of the material in alt media makes them out to be. We are talking about egotistical maniacs here and a few dick measuring contests are bound to break out from time to time.
