p. 185 Clarification: In the chapter Central and Eastern Europe and the Baltic states, it was stated that:
"In August 2001, the Slovak finance ministry asked the public procurement office to stop the tender for an information system for the state treasury. The ministry filed a lawsuit because - according to the indictment - an employee of the firm Siemens had allegedly offered a bribe to the chairman of the commission deciding the bids. The employee allegedly offered the tender's chairman a bribe of 1.5 million crowns (US $30,000)."
The above information is correct, but subsequently, on 8 September 2003, the Criminal Court in Bratislava, Slovakia, announced a verdict acquitting the Siemens employee of the charges. The ministry did not appeal against the verdict.
