India, Libya bribes land US adviser 7-years’ jail in Oslo

An Oslo court on Tuesday sentenced the American chief legal adviser of Norwegian fertilizer giant Yara International to seven years in prison for aggravated bribery in India and Libya.

In December, an Oslo appeals court upheld a guilty verdict against Kendrick Wallace, but cleared three other former executives in the case: two Norwegians, including former CEO Thorleif Enger, and a Frenchman.

Wallace’s sentence, which the lower court had set at two-and-a-half years, was extended because the appeals court found he had played a “central” role in the bribery payments.
