“Ericsson’s corrupt conduct involved high-level executives and spanned 17 years and at least five countries, all in a misguided effort to increase profits,”
This next part is rich…
Ericsson “agreed to the imposition of an independent compliance monitor.”
Investigation or Coverup?
The $1B in total charges include a criminal penalty of more than $520 million, plus $540 million to be paid to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in a related matter.

The SEC to Ericsson on September 29th, 2010…
“As you know, Cuba, Iran, Sudan, and Syria are countries that are identified by the U.S. Department of State as state sponsors of terrorism, and are subject to U.S. economic sanctions and export controls.”
In 2009-10, Ericsson was in hot water w Hillary Clinton’s State Department for trading with an enemy state in Iran.
“We are not going to broaden sanctions on Iran to include Technologies like Telecom.
We’re going to rely and expect companies like Ericsson to police themselves.”

ISIS faded into obscurity for several years after the surge of U.S. troops to Iraq in 2007.
It began to reemerge in 2011. Over the next few years, it took advantage of growing instability in Iraq & Syria to carry out attacks & bolster its ranks.
With Ericsson’s help of course!

Executive Order — Blocking the Property and Suspending Entry into the United States of Certain Persons with Respect to Grave Human Rights Abuses by the Governments of Iran and Syria via Information TechnologyEricsson avoids sanctions…
The Government knew what Ericsson was up to and they chose to ignore it or defer action.
AND THE FCC DID NOT INCLUDE NATIONAL SECURITY REQUIREMENTS in the initial bid process?!
“Evidence emerged several months ago that Telcordia had improperly used a small number of foreign nationals, including one Chinese citizen, to do computer coding for early work on the system after Telcordia was given preliminary approval for the job.”

See my notes on that star studded cast of misfits…
The Clinton Email investigation started in the EDNY where Telcordia is… Then was moved to the SDNY.
So how corrupt is the SDNY?
SDNY – Weiner evidence collection
SDNY – Clinton Foundation Investigation
SDNY – Epstein evidence collection
SDNY – Ghislaine Maxwell Case
SDNY – Trump Tax Returns
SDNY – SEC v Ripple LabsObama made the appointment of Allison Nathan upon the recommendation of sen. Chuck Schumer
