What Happened In Oslo Shouldn’t Stay In Oslo

Last week I had the pleasure and honor of participating in the Oslo, 2015 Anti-Corruption Conference, at the invitation of Helge Kvamme, Partner, Investigations and Compliance, Selmer Law Firm, Norway, and a member of the Organizing Committee as well as a speaker during the Conference. It was during the Conference that I engaged, via live video feed, in an interview with Robert “Bob” Appleton, Partner, Day Pitney, who from Norway, interviewed me in a one hour session titled “Bribery from the sharp end.” During this session, Bob launched into a discussion which started from our first intersection in 2006, when he targeted me as Chairman of the UN Procurement Task Force, as a subject of a UN investigation on contract fraud.
