WASHINGTON (Sputnik) —Joseph Sigelman, 44, of Miami and the Philippines, pleaded guilty today in the District of New Jersey to conspiracy to violate the FCPA, according to Department's press release. “His trial had commenced on June 1, 2015.”

Sigelman confessed to conspiring with the company’s co-CEO Knut Hammarskjold and former general counsel Gregory Weisman to make illegal payments to secure services contracts.

The three executives conspired to provide David Duran, an employee of Colombia’s national oil company Ecopetrol $333,500 in exchange for $45 million in oil services contract to PetroTiger.

Hammarskjold and Weisman also admitted to violating FCPA and committing wire fraud.

The Justice Department did not prosecute PetroTiger because the company voluntarily brought the case to the authorities, and fully cooperated in the investigation, the release read.

Sigelman will be sentenced on June 16, 2015.

PetroTiger Ltd. is an oil and gas company based in the British Virgin Islands that operates in Colombia, according to the release.
