Grapevine-based Dallas Airmotive pays $14 million fine for bribing Latin American officials

Dallas Airmotive Inc. of Grapevine has admitted to federal prosecutors that it paid bribes to government officials in Argentina, Brazil and Peru in order to obtain lucrative airplane engine maintenance contracts.

As part of a deal struck with the U.S. Department of Justice, Dallas Airmotive agreed to pay $14 million in criminal penalties.

The bribes violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, according to records filed late Wednesday in federal court in Dallas.

Federal prosecutors said that Dallas Airmotive paid bribes to officials with the Brazilian Air Force, the Peruvian Air Force, the Office of the Governor of the Brazilian State of Roraima, and the Office of the Governor of the San Juan Province in Argentina.

1. Dallas Airmotive really has this act down, doesn't it? Probably been doing it a long, long time.

I have complete faith they've been hard at it for years, undoubtedly going after it hammer and tongs during the Bush administration while everyone looked the other way.

It would have taken a long time to get something this complex in motion.

Thanks for this O.P.

Wish more people would see it.
