More execs charged in Nortel fraud case

Four finance executives charged by SEC

The SEC has charged four former finance
executives at Nortel Networks Corp with
engaging in accounting fraud.

Those charged are Douglas Hamilton, Craig Johnson, James Kinney and Kenneth
Taylor, who served as vice presidents of finance for Nortel’s Optical, Wireline,
Wireless and Enterprise business units, respectively.

This brings to seven the number of senior executives charged – in 2003 the US
watchdog charged Nortel’s former chief executive, chief financial officer and
controller with directing the earnings management fraud in 2003 that manipulated
the Toronto-based company’s reserves.

Nortel made no comment on proceedings against former company officers, but
said it will continue to cooperate fully with the SEC.
