U.S. exec jailed for bribery.
Schemed to pay hundreds of thousands in bribes to Haitian firm

ReutersOctober 27, 2011

The former president of a U.S.-based telecommunications company has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for a scheme to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes to officials of a Haitian stateowned phone company.

The sentence given on Tuesday to Joel Esquenazi, 52, former head of Florida-based Terra Telecommunications Corp., was the longest ever imposed in a prosecution involving the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida said on Wednesday.

In the same sentencing ruling, U.S. District Judge Jose Martinez handed down a seven-year jail term to Terra's former executive vice president, Carlos Rodriguez, 55.

Esquenazi and Rodriguez were convicted in August of a scheme to commit bribery and money laundering. They were also ordered by Martinez to forfeit $3.09 million.

Prosecutors said that from November 2001 through March 2005, their company paid more than $890,000 to shell companies to be used for bribes to Haitian government officials at Télécommunications d'Haïti S.A.M. (Haïti Téléco).

Haïti Téléco, which was privatized in 2010 and is now controlled by a Vietnamese military-run company Viettel, was the sole provider of land line telephone service. Terra held contracts with Téléco that allowed the company's customers to place calls to Haiti.

"This sentence ... is a stark reminder to executives that bribing government officials to secure business advantages is a serious crime with serious consequences," U.S. Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer said in a statement.

Four other individuals, including a former director for international affairs for Haïti Téléco, were previously convicted and sentenced for their roles in the bribery scheme.
