American oil tycoon Oscar Wyatt has been sentenced to one year and a day in prison for conspiracy in the UN oil-for-food programme scandal.


The Texas oilman, aged 83, had agreed last month to plead guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud.


He admitted he agreed to pay $200,000 (£97,000) into an Iraqi bank account.
Under the oil-for-food programme, some companies paid bribes to officials in Saddam Hussein's Iraq in order to secure contracts to buy oil.

Ni vizuri sana kama watu wanakiri “wizi” wao.Serikali ya Tanzania sasa inapaswa kumpeleka Rais Mtaafu Mkapa na Waziri wake wa Nishati na Madini katika mahakama ya UN yaliopo Dodoma kwa wizi wa mgodi wa Kiwira. Mkapa na Yona waliibia Taifa la Tanzania mgodi huo wakati yeye mwenyewe Mkapa ikiwa ni Rais wa Jamhuri ya Tanzania.
