Este es un "casito" de unos $350.000, pero demuestra que la corrupción en PDVSA es generalizada. Sobornos y extorsión, porque la empresa pagó porque los gerentes de la empresa se lo exigieron.
Y Nicolás sigue hablando paja sobre la lucha contra la corrupción. Que miseria de gente!
In re Oil States International, Inc.
In the Matter of Oil States International, Inc. (D.D.C., April 27, 2006): On April 27, 2006, the Commission instituted settled administrative proceedings against Oil States International, Inc. for violations of the record keeping and internal controls provisions of the FCPA. The Commission Order arises from certain payments made through its Hydraulic Well Control, LLC (HWC) subsidiary. Oil States, through certain employees of HWC, provided approximately $348,350 in improper payments to employees of Petróleos de Venezuela, S.A. (PdVSA), an energy company owned by the government of Venezuela. The employees were asked to participate in the scheme by a consultant for HWC, after he was requested to do so by the PdVSA employees. HWC improperly recorded the payments in its accounting books and records as ordinary business expenses, which were consolidated into those of its parent, Oil States.
