Oscar Wyatt Trial to Begin Today

Oscar Wyatt's trial starts today.  The indictment against the 83 year old businessman comes out of an investigation of the U.N. oil-for-food program. Wyatt faces charges claiming that he paid kickbacks to individuals in "Saddam Hussein's regime to win contracts under the United Nations' oil-for-food program."   (See Houston Chronicle here and here)  For background on this case and other matters related to the oil-for-food program see here, here, and here. Tom Kirkendall at Houston Clearthinkers has a copy of the Indictment here and some background here.
