French telecom equipment maker Alcatel-Lucent will pay USD10 million to settle a corruption case that involved former Costa Rican government officials, according to BNamericas, which cites Alca-Lu's communications director for Latin America Marco Malfavon.

The payment is related to a scandal in which Alcatel-Lucent was accused of bribing officials including former Costa Rican President Miguel Angel Rodriguez to win a USD149 million contract to install 400,000 GSM lines. Malfavon said the payment would be made to the attorney general who brought a lawsuit in 2004 against Alcatel accusing it of ‘social damage’.
