Beam Suntory settles with DOJ for $19.6 million

Beam Suntory Inc. agreed to pay a penalty of $19.6 million for bribery and other violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).[1] The company had paid bribes to officials in India and then went to great lengths to conceal the bribes and foil investigations into the FCPA violations. The agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) also includes a deferred prosecution agreement that puts the DOJ in an oversight role over changes to the company’s internal ethics and compliance controls.[2]
