Illinois Trucking Company Owner Pleads Guilty to Attempting to Bribe FMCSA Safety Investigator
Dejan Zlatkovic, owner of KGB-ATA Trucking, pleaded guilty to bribery charges in U.S. District Court in Chicago, Illinois. In July 2002, a FMCSA Safety Investigator notified OIG that Zlatkovic offered him a $10,000 bribe after he conducted a safety compliance review at KGB-ATA and identified numerous violations of FMCSA safety regulations. Zlatkovic wanted the safety investigator to alter the compliance review to reflect a conditional rating. Zlatkovic was subsequently arrested by OIG special agents on July 31, 2002 and indicted on bribery charges in October 2002.
