Well isn't this breaking news. There are countries in the world were bribery is common. Isn't that unbelievable? Can you imagine having to payoff some bureaucrat to get something done. Duh! Americans are so naive.
Russia, India, Mexico, that's part of the business world. Wake up and smell the coffee.
I'm not saying it's right or wrong, but it surely exists.
I am still not sure it was illegal, there are cases where it's legal to pay for the ease of getting certain things done, but you know the press when it comes to Wall Mart. The very reason I never invested in this company that always had good numbers.
