Defendant, president of a construction company which had a government contract, on his own initiative went to the FBI and stated that he had been required to pay bribes to government officials in the course of completing his contract. Defendant declined to make a further statement, and said that if questioned about the bribery, he would deny it. Acting on this statement, the FBI initiated an investigation to determine whether any of the officials connected with defendant's contract had, in fact, solicited or received bribes. The defendant then stated that the bribery accusation was false.
