12-02-08 IBM, ESD, and corruption of governments // IBM, EDS y la corrupción de los gobiernos // IBM,ESD 和政府的腐败 // IBM, EDS, и коррупция правительства

Emacs!    Emacs! Over the past decade, US corporations IBM and EDS have been involved in development of the electronic record systems of the courts of the State of Israel.

According to the State Ombudsman 2010 report (60b): [1]-         The corporations were awarded contracts with no bidding;
-         Development was initiated with no written specifications;
-         No state employees were involved in core supervision, only individuals on personal special consulting contracts;
-         The state customer did not perform any independent examination of the systems prior to implementation;
-         The servers are located on corporate grounds, not under the courts administration;
-         Unknown number of persons issued double smart ID cards.

Previous reports documented that the systems, developed by these corporations undermined the integrity of court records in Israel.  [2]
Below are search results regarding involvement of IBM, EDS in other cases of corruption of governments. 

As is often the case with high level corruption, one can assume that most cases are never exposed.

Although the systems implemented in the Israeli courts and the US courts are very different, the nature of the fraud in their systems is similar, and the end results are identical: conduct of simulated litigation and publication of simulated court decisions and judgments, and refusal of the offices of the Clerks of the courts to certify the courts' decision. [3-5]
"A court, which refuses to certify its own decisions, is certified corrupt," concludes Joseph Zernik, PhD, of Human Rights Alert (NGO).
