"...innocent untill proven guilty." - this is defense lawyer talk for the criminals. A criminal (person or enterprise) is one that broke the law. A criminal is not innocent - it is just that the criminal is not found guilty yet. Alcatel-Lucent knowingly engaged in criminal behavior in this case. Please don't call this innocent behavior until proven guilty. Anyoone who does so contributes to merely meeting legal (lowest/minimum expected) requirement, and not ethical (higher) business conduct.

Sheetal I disagree. Bribing and relation development are two faces of coin. If you have a competitive product at competitive price, you do not need to bribe. Yes, you need strong customer relationship offcourse. Just my opinion.

Well bribing to win contracts is one of the way of doing business. In business everything is give and take. And everyone is innocent untill proven guilty.

Thanks SEC. You are the last hope for MNCs having sanity in the developing world. At least they fear you before they act recklessly.
