the FCPA, and these involved GE company funds that were fraudulently disbursed through subcontractors for testing of jet engines that was never actually conducted. (Dotan was paid out of these funds to exercise his influence with the Israeli government to use GE in future contracts, but there was no evidence that GE was aware of this.) GE's settlement with the Justice Department thus pertained entirely to the embezzlement of US government funds and not to the FCPA. GE's internal response as a company to the scandal was to fire several senior level managers for their failure to ensure that the anti-corruption policies of the company were adhered to. In the intervening period, GE has become one of the strongest multinational corporate voices for the development of corporate, national, and international anti-corruption programs, policies, and laws.
