Tokyo executive questioned about Vietnam bribe

An executive of a Tokyo-based consultancy firm, which is accused of bribery involving a Japanese-funded project in Vietnam, says a high-ranking Vietnamese official demanded the bribe.

Sources say the executive told Tokyo prosecutors that the Vietnamese official asked him to give about 10 percent of the amount of the project, or about 2.8 million dollars.

In one instance, the consultancy firm, Pacific Consultants International, allegedly handed over about 840,000 dollars to a senior official of Ho Chi Minh City. The official was responsible for a highway construction project financed by Japan’s official development assistance.

The executive of the consultancy firm says he could not refuse the official’s demand, as it was a large project worth about 28 million dollars.

The negotiations on the amount of the bribe were allegedly held in the office of the Ho Chi Minh City official and the consultancy firm reportedly agreed to the proposed amount at the end.

Prosecutors suspect that under the deal the consultancy firm may have paid bribes annually over 5 years until 2006, worth about 2.5 million dollars.
