The Anti-Corruption Report published the article “Aruba Telecom Sentencings Demonstrate Continued Panama Papers Repercussions” on July 11, which features commentary from Aisling O'Shea. “These are among the first public cases that appear to have stemmed from information uncovered in the Panama Papers,” Aisling said. In discussing how the two defendants received different charges but similar prison sentences, Aisling explained that “Parker and Koolman were charged with related conduct, but under different statutes…Parker was charged with conspiracy to violate the FCPA under the general conspiracy statute, 18 U.S.C. § 371, which carries a five-year statutory maximum, while Koolman was charged with conspiracy to commit money laundering under the money laundering statute, 18 U.S.C. § 1956, which carries a 20-year statutory maximum.”
