Introduction Titan set up a joint venture with a government company in the West of Africa in Benin in 1998 to build a wireless telephone network The firm hired a man as its local agent who was known as a business adviser to Benins president Mathieu Kerekou From 1999 to December 2001 Titan paid more than 35 million to this agent including 2 million that was falsely billed as consulting services but actually was used for the presidents re-election campaign In 2000 Titan demanded an increase from 5 to 20 in the fees it charged for supervising the project but this was turned down by the state telecommunications office of Benin One year later during the preparations for the presidential elections held in March 2001 Titan began to make social payments in Benin Some of the money was used to reimburse the agents purchase of campaign T-shirts and to pay for a 1850 pair of earrings for the presidents wife Through out this paper we will try to understand why Titan was accused of bribery and what this accusation means In order to comprehend the situation it is necessary to explain what bribery and corruption are and why they are prohibited Thanks to these explanations we will able to analyze Titans case and expose the laws that the firm is confronted with Finally we will see how we can resolve or at least limit the problem of bribery throughout the world Scope of research In order to find a case that corresponded to a topic which was covered during the seminar I started out by looking for articles which talked about corruption When I came upon an article that seemed to cover international business law the Titian case I continued to search for related articles Most of the articles mentioned the Foreign Corruption Practices Law of 1977 so it became clear that this was the most relevant law to this case
