Fraud Spotlight on Hollywood
By Matthew Garrahan in Los Angeles and Brooke
Masters in New York
Published: August 9 2009 18:59
Hollywood studios and film producers are set to face increasing scrutiny from anti-fraud officials, as a result of a trial involving incidents in Bangkok that could have repercussions across the entertainment sector. Gerald Green, an American film producer, and his wife, Patricia, are alleged to have violated the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) by paying bribes to a Thai tourism official. It is claimed that the alleged bribes were offered to obtain contracts to run an international film festival in Bangkok. Mr Green and his wife have pleaded not guilty to bribery charges. The Green‘s trial in Los Angeles, which is entering its second week, is the first FCPA case to involve the entertainment industry. The case suggests that Hollywood has joined the pharmaceuticals and energy industries as a target of anti-fraud enforcers at the US department of justice. The new interest of FCPA in Hollywood could become a severe headache for studios and producers that shoot films in international locations. The Green‘s trial is likely to be followed by more FCPA investigations in Hollywood, Jonathan Drimmer, a former DoJ lawyer, said. “The
justice department identifies a practice [in a particular industry] and then suddenly they go across that industry in a lateral manner. They did it with the medical device industry and they did it with oil and gas companies.”
