There are Indian allegations that Walmart has been engaged in bribery over fees it paid to lobbyists to access the Indian market. They may not hold water. Corporate lobbying is banned in India. But Walmart paid for the services in the US, where lobbying is legal. The supermarket disclosed the fees it paid. It also hired firms that lobbied the US government over access to the Asian nation, not the Indian government. The case raises interesting questions over how multinationals navigate clashing legislation in different countries where they operate.
