This is an FCPA related action against Jean Duperval, the former director of international relations for Telecommnications D’Haiti S.A.M. or Haiti Teleco. Following a jury trial Mr. Duperval was convicted on two counts of conspiracy to commit money laundering and 19 counts of money laundering. The charges stem from the period 2003 to 2006 during which about $500,000 was paid to two shell companies for bribes for Mr. Duperval in connection with the issuance of preferred telecommunication rates, a continued telecommunications connection with Haiti and the continuation of a favorable contract with Haiti Telco. The payments were documented with invoices for consulting services although no real services were rendered. Previously, seven other individuals have been convicted on charges related to the scheme.
