“to an employee at government-owned airline”

Shouldn’t there be an “a” in there?

Another Japanese company involved in a fraud and bribery scandal. It's getting to the point where it is no longer news.

Japan Inc. engaged in bribery? Say it ain't so!

The SEC, fined parent company

As there is no ‘a’ in the first sentence, there need not be a ‘,’ in this sentence.

Everybody knows the American companies pay thousands of millions of dollars to lobbyists, Panasonic did the same. It's time for Japan to set up your intelligence agency.

The Justice Department fined Panasonic Avionics $137.4 million for charges of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and entered into a deferred prosecution agreement with the company.

In fact, the US was international police and have license to blackmail International Corporation.
