The Department of Justice (DOJ) finally cried "uncle" in its long-sought, but repeatedly unsuccessful, prosecutions of military-equipment manufacturers for violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) by bribing officials in Gabon. After two unsuccessful trials, the DOJ moved for a dismissal of all indictments with prejudice. In granting the motion, the district judge noted, "This appears to be the end of a long and sad chapter in the annals of white collar criminal history." Meanwhile, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has issued a subpoena to Halliburton regarding alleged FCPA violations in Angola.
