Koch Brothers Guilty of Dealings With Iran

Those dear Koch brothers, funders of Scott Walker and the Tea Party, have proven themselves to be lying, cheating swine! Behold their crimes!

Koch Brothers Flout Law Getting Richer With Secret Iran Sales

In May 2008, a unit of Koch Industries Inc., one of the world’s largest privately held companies, sent Ludmila Egorova-Farines, its newly hired compliance officer and ethics manager, to investigate the management of a subsidiary in Arles in southern France. In less than a week, she discovered that the company had paid bribes to win contracts.

“I uncovered the practices within a few days,” Egorova- Farines says. “They were not hidden at all.”

She immediately notified her supervisors in the U.S. A week later, Wichita, Kansas-based Koch Industries dispatched an investigative team to look into her findings, Bloomberg Markets magazine reports in its November issue.

By September of that year, the researchers had found evidence of improper payments to secure contracts in six countries dating back to 2002, authorized by the business director of the company’s Koch-Glitsch affiliate in France.

“Those activities constitute violations of criminal law,” Koch Industries wrote in a Dec. 8, 2008, letter giving details of its findings. The letter was made public in a civil court ruling in France in September 2010; the document has never before been reported by the media.

Egorova-Farines wasn’t rewarded for bringing the illicit payments to the company’s attention. Her superiors removed her from the inquiry in August 2008 and fired her in June 2009, calling her incompetent, even after Koch’s investigators substantiated her findings. She sued Koch-Glitsch in France for wrongful termination.

Thus proving that violence must be used. Truthfully the only thing that gets the attention of the sheep is when violence begins happening all around them. Trust me all it would take is these guys having their heads split open. Life made difficult for them to walk anywheres or appear in public anywheres.

Doing buisness with Iran just like G.E.....both doing whatever the hell they want. Despite ongoing sanctions. Get a copy of the report and keep putting it into these assholes faces. I mean personally I would tell them to their face that after I am done with them their name is going down as a Traitor to the country. That I am personally going to make the rest of their days on this planet. Very difficult indeed.
