Swedish telecom Ericsson agrees to pay $1 billion over U.S. bribery allegations | The Japan Times


Prosecutors say that between 2000 and 2016, the company engaged in a scheme to pay bribes, falsify its books and records and ensure company officials turned a blind eye to the corruption, according to the Justice Department statement. […] Alleged corruption occurred in Djibouti, China, Vietnam, Indonesia and Kuwait.

That’s quite a fine America is levying on a Swedish company for actions in areas that are not part of the United States. Who gets the money?
