Lawmakers Frustrated in Wal-Mart Corruption Probe
U.S. lawmakers are frustrated by the lack of cooperation they've received from Wal-Mart in the investigation of the retailer for alleged bribery in Mexico, a committee staffer familiar with the investigation said. Attorneys for Wal-Mart briefed the committee earlier on Monday about the company's anti-corruption compliance program, the person said. But Wal-Mart hasn't committed to briefing the panel on the substantive allegations raised by a New York Times report, a key request of the committee, said the staffer, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. A Wal-Mart spokesman didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
