Volvo and DCX paid illegal kickbacks to Saddam

Recommended Posts

Germany-based automaker DaimlerChrysler, meanwhile, appears to have paid just $7,000 on a contract worth $70,000. DaimlerChrysler AG didn't immediately return a call seeking comment from its offices in Stuttgart, Germany.

The report said, for example, that Brussels-based Volvo Construction Equipment paid $317,000 in extra fees to the Iraqi government on a $6.4 million contract. Volvo Construction is part of Swedish-based Volvo Group, which referred all questions to Volvo Construction Equipment's headquarters in Brussels. The group is separate from Volvo automobiles, which is owned by Ford.

And what's the problem here? We muddy the waters for two American companies over a) 7k; B ) totally unrelated company??? Ford doesn't even belong in this scandal. DCX doesn't even seem like they did something wrong. Edited by SingleStylish

Compared to the rampant corruption and graft members of the United Nations were part of, this is nothing
