US WITHDRAWS CORRUPTION CHARGE AGAINST FORMER BARBADOS MINISTER

On 28th December, Caribbean 360 reported that the US DoJ has withdrawn one of the charges under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act that was brought against Donville Innis.  This is in light of a recent US court decision that a non-resident foreign national cannot be held criminally liable for aiding or abetting, or conspiring to violate, the FCPA, unless the Government can show he acted as an agent of a domestic concern, or while physically present in the US.
