Wal-Mart fires India manager in bribery probe


New Delhi, India – The India unit of Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has reportedly fired a mid-level manager as part of a probe into alleged bribery violations. According to the Economic Times, Wal-Mart gave the manager a termination notice last week, two years after the company suspended its former India CEO and legal team due to possible violations of U.S. anti-bribery laws.

The fired manager will have to be available for questioning by the U.S. Justice Department for any inquiry into Wal-Mart violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), which outlaws U.S.-listed companies from bribing government officials of foreign countries, in the next five years. Wal-Mart declined comment.
