Bribery charges added in Green case
Couple accused of paying kickbacks to Thai officialThe federal government has added bribery charges to its growing investigation into the dealings of Film Festival Management executives Gerald and Patricia Green.
The U.S. Attorney's Office said Friday the Greens are accused of paying kickbacks to a former governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand in exchange for receiving lucrative contracts. The Greens have previously denied the charges that they bribed a senior Thai government official to run the Bangkok International Film Fest.
The couple formed FFM in 2003 to bid for festival management contracts.
