Pirates, Bribery, and International Treachery
Transnational is an international company that arranges transportation for large cargo items and shipments of large orders. Transnational has a fleet of cargo ships. Each cargo ship has a crew of 25 employees.
Transnational's head of security, Jack Davis, is a retired U.S. Navy officer who, until January 2009, worked for the United States Department of Homeland Security. Since his hiring by Transnational, Davis has alerted senior management to the evolving issue of pirates. Despite an international incident involving a U.S. ship in the spring of 2009, the response of management to Davis's concerns has been one of postponement.
A group of pirates has boarded a Transnational ship that was, at the time of the takeover, sailing off the coast of Africa. The pirates have demanded payment of $25 million, or $1,000,000 for each crew member. The pirates have imposed a deadline of five hours for Transnational's decision and promise of payment. The pirates have also indicated that they will begin killing crew members one at a time if their deadline for the payment is not met. Davis advises Transnational to go ahead and pay the pirates because "Lives of employees are at stake and my job is protecting employees." However, a Transnational senior officer cautions in a meeting, "That's a bribe, and Transnational has a long-standing practice of not paying bribes."
The officers, the board, and Davis seek your advice.
