A Diebold Inc. automated teller machine
4 August 2012. Diebold Inc., a security systems and automated-teller machine company, said on Friday that it has begun initial talks with U.S. authorities to resolve a probe into possible breaches of foreign bribery law. Diebold disclosed in July 2010 that it was investigating payments by its Russian subsidiary that may have been in breach of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. At the end of October 2010, it revealed that the SEC issued a subpoena and the Justice Department requested documents. In November, the company fired its Russian leadership amid the probe, and by February 2011, Diebold discovered possible violations in the Asia-Pacific region as well. By July of 2011, it appeared the probe was winding down.
