SEC v. Stanley (Nigeria LNG Contracts Bribery)

The Securities and Exchange Commission charged former KBR executive Albert Jackson Stanley with violating the anti-bribery provisions of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and related provisions of the federal securities laws. The SEC alleges that over a 10-year period, Stanley and other members of a four-company joint venture participated in a scheme to bribe Nigerian government officials in order to obtain construction contracts worth more than $6 billion to build liquefied natural gas facilities in Bonny Island, Nigeria. Without admitting or denying the SEC’s allegations, Stanley consented to the entry of a final judgment that permanently enjoins him from violating the anti-bribery, record-keeping and internal control provisions of Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and also agreed to cooperate with the SEC’s ongoing investigation. See related Halliburton instance, “U.S. v. Stanley (Nigeria LNG Contracts Bribery)” and pending instance, “Bribery to Win International Government Contracts.”
