determined to hear it good person if you can are no one to bug had achieved an incredible act of sheer force he had transformed the general electric else dumb pairing into a tripartite partnership with the french state in the areas of renewable energy and nuclear power it appeared that french interest and sovereignty had been preserved so it was it that going to play morning was that they often are not discuss the music they play out on a manual that. and you look at shows. on them oh a clean way yonder of said tell us where you go and it hasn't caught on it's an equal cookies giveaway still false he saw ruefully there exists levy you don't you will no more difficult not not that i don't you care to conclusion do not have almost an hour early next you'll move lobbies don't see to not use their own tam's of people these any on june twenty first twenty fourteen the agreement is signed by general electric and the french state the sale has become an alliance at this
moment the battle file storm appears to have been won however we have to go back a few years to understand the stakes. were. looked up to fourteen months fourteen months in a foreign prison fourteen months of never seeing a familiar face. bend and by all still management ignored by patrick crone and forgotten by his country. fourteen months of wondering when it will all end. how did one hundred ranking alstom executive lose everything overnight. why is he. these men who question him so insistently. want to confessions about his company do they want from him.
join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to get off of the world of politics small business i'm show business i'll see that. i'm not. wild give easy wild fun this us. war union said one slide yes solves. the rational assaults in their. possession of the need the feel. good when you go cause i'm not.
dumb the pull me at the ball up my pizza in the. scheme of them shows slips that he had ceased to. exist small fortune in the beginning to your. fortune for the automobile of a boat is more than enough to show that you. believe . the thing about saudi arabia is they is the oil as a weapon you know if they get too close to investigating what's going on over there they push the price of oil up now on the last ten years because of fracking in america america position to stop us energy independent and no longer subject to the political pressures that can be borne upon them from opec and the saudis so we're
going to see a real test of this because. all of these a litany of horrors coming out of saudi arabia is making people feel. i've been saying the numbers mean something they matter you have to do with one trillion dollars and. more than ten point zero or prime stamping each. eighty five percent of all well you want to be rich eight point six percent market stock thirty percent from last year some with four hundred to five hundred three per second per second and one rose to twenty thousand dollars. china is building a two point one billion dollar. mark but don't let the numbers overwhelm. the only numbers you need to remember one one. for the mid one and only boom.
in twenty years a u.s. department of justice launches an extensive investigation and they suspect the french company of using corrupt practices for more than ten years to will contracts in many countries initial suspicions concern bribes allegedly made to members of the indonesian government in return for the contract to build a power station refuses to cooperate with the u.s. department of justice but the investigation continues regardless and extends to other suspected cases in taiwan saudi arabia egypt and the bahamas systematic and deliberately corrupt practices are revealed across the globe. and then. do not. let us finish off that.
difficult. for difficult. then i think. that you will go although already condemned abroad it's surprising that alstom should simply brush the u.s. prosecution aside corporate leaders are convinced that the u.s. department of justice has no jurisdiction. for events that occurred outside the u.s. territory. i did it early to do i mean i can. tell you i'm one of these . pop dogs. that if you use it as you need it will be able when you take it be a pleasurable u.s. law or is the foreign corrupt practices act. you have sepia this allows the d.o.j. or department of justice to prosecute a foreign company for corrupt practices not on u.s. soil provided that the company has an identifiable connection to the united states
after the moves it. was that. it was a welcome back to limo was it easy example system to communicate. america . nor was it easy. example a sat phone. doorstep and it would be modeled america if you. take it if you cannot will please keep boss. as it is unique. but on this one can do i mean again it's links was. with tom's refusal to cooperate with the d.o.j. as prosecution intensified in april twenty first team while traveling to the united states. a one time alstom executive was arrested. you won't
believe. as you more evaded. the increase on duty security do you forgive i think did. the navy don't learn quickly don't tell more but we. don't need to become almost. designed to take over you. it's not just for the record ruchi who is under arrest three other former elst. employees some of whom have been retired for years before american courts they plead guilty to corruption judges and the case against becomes overwhelming. as you. do. in paris on
february the ninth twenty fourteen at the lugs derrius bristol hotel patrick crone meets the general electric c this is the first encounter the first face to face meeting between the two men. tends. to sell for a company he hopes to free. himself from the clutches of the american justice system therefore places a condition on the sale general a big drink will settle any fine for. the general electric c.e.o. excepts and commits to the condition having killed two birds with one stone patrick pop the champagne. has been sold and its economic and legal difficulties are evaporating into the american sky perhaps the department of justice will even defer the payment of the five patrick crown this is the exact moment when irrevocably became america.
the idea put in to. devolve. that's what he did johnny treat it be a that. and also. so you could call it if you see deval in the late people forget it it's and they don't think once it just kind of a new if you heath ask you know you know mom didn't have parted in about these are doing to me if only to get off and see who else on today's date on this you know solo up the army do i don't see the book is already doing these i want it more for the show to general sickly delusional talk is already a problem another country under circuity zero it is you need to create died to me
and please always he said by the way in question because they were devoted to. develop some of these it only differences but google more. exceptional play need the absolutely most. people and only had to take a look at all the folks that they have it is a daily daemon again. within days it is unique despite several alstom executives being arrested from twenty fourteen on would patrick cronin his team went to the united states several times never arrested nor concerned they could proceed with the sale to general electric and peace it's hard to imagine that at the same time very has been imprisoned for a year from executives are detained by the f.b.i. the moment they set foot on american soil so much so that dom's director of legal affairs urges company managers not to travel to the united states strangely patrick cronin remains welcome tonight to news is false and use
a simple ordeal look like tomorrow in france however patrick runs astonishing ability to enter and leave the united states on hindered is raising eyebrows he's questioned by m.p. jack at the french national assembly. hall. yeah. it could last fifty years. sure saturn on the earth just cements be. a tank it surely sure sure sure sure like this joan sure. sure nuff she says it isn't like question i think it is a for the more they. do something more that afic works as well as i can see blood pressure pretty to. spec when it but no proof i'm going to switch by committee imported you surely can ship. and on your own do do do but other commodity today

and this isn't general electric's first attempt over ten years the american company has bought five companies that were being prosecuted by the department of justice for corruption the pattern is always the same an investigation is conducted and an acquisition unfolds under the threat of conviction and a severe fine which is avoided have been american british and french companies a twenty six million dollars fine was paid by the gray company in two thousand and seven after it was bought by general electric this was described as the biggest fine ever imposed under the foreign corrupt practices act eight years later that record is beaten by these lawsuits have systematically put pressure on the
companies concerned facilitating a purchase by general electric for patrick cronin admitting a connection between any corruption prosecution against him and the acquisition of storm is out of the question according to the c.e.o. the reasons were purely financial some experts and journalists even said the same thing at the time of the sale. if you don't. explain. don't. worry. this is a monkey just yet if you do it. if you don't he takes the top should fall to those on the bubble the i'm less sure looks like he doesn't know yet it is a major was elected sure wish sure not all places can lead to point b. short used to shoot it is a quite a silly show me
