Why was Siemens let off so easy? This is just a slap on the wrist to a company as large as Siemens. They should have had to pay back the entire cost of the contract PLUS 10x that much in punitive damages and the Siemens officials should have gone to jail and done some hard time. This is pure and simple bribery and fraud. Siemens got off too easy and they still made money on the deal. Siemens will learn nothing from this and there is therefore a good possibility that it will again, since no one from Siemens ended up going to jail. There should be a follow up story to this regarding charges of massive corruption and bribing by Siemens around the world.
