The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists is not releasing the leaked documents in full. We will publish only excerpts from the documents for source-protection and to safeguard the innocent. In excerpts, we name only people and companies that have been contacted for comment. The internal review examined evidence of bribery and corruption through the lens of Ericsson’s internal “code of conduct.” Throughout the documents, the review identifies “breaches” of that code. Here are nine notable cases described by internal investigators in the leaked files ranging from cash payments to militant groups to gifts and travel costs for high ranking officials:Potential code of conduct breaches: Corruption and Financial Irregularities – Facilitation payments – Bribes and Kickbacks; Compliance with Laws, Rules, and Regulations – Trade compliance What the payment was for: Safe passage for trucks carrying Ericsson equipment through ISIS areas. The route, nicknamed the “Speedway,” avoided Iraqi customs. An Ericsson contractor arranged the payments, which were in cash, according to the internal review. Potential code of conduct breaches: Corruption and Financial Irregularities – Facilitation payments; Compliance with Laws, Rules, and Regulations What the money was for: Embezzled by Roger Antoun, a former Ericsson employee, from funds intended for an Ericsson supplier in Iraq.
