Hollywood Power Couple Charged With Bribery

Hollywood producer GERALD GREEN and his wife PATRICIA are each facing up to 10 years in prison for attempting to bribe Thai officials to secure a contract to run a Bangkok film festival. Gerald Green, who has more than a dozen producer credits in films including Salvador and the critically-acclaimed Rescue Dawn, was arrested at Los Angeles International airport on Tuesday (18Dec07) after arriving on a flight from Thailand, an FBI spokeswoman confirmed. The 75-year-old and his wife, 52, are charged with paying more than $1.7 million (GBP850,000) in bribes to an unnamed senior Thai government official, to secure the lucrative festival contract and others worth more than $10 million (GBP5 million), according to a statement from the U.S. Justice Department. The Greens own Film Festival Management, a Los Angeles-based company formed in 2003 to bid for the contract to run Bangkok's annual film festival.
