World Bank official sentenced for lying
A World Bank economist living in Falls Church will spend one day in jail and two years on supervised release after pleading guilty to lying to the FBI during a human trafficking investigation.
The FBI investigated Anne Bakilana's treatment of her domestic servant.
Bakilana pleaded guilty to charges of making fictitious and fraudulent statements earlier this year. She has agreed to pay the domestic servant $41,000 in restitution after failing to pay her a prevailing wage and overtime.
Prosecutors say the victim has been granted a temporary visa.
A World Bank spokesman says the bank's rules call for termination of staff members convicted of felonies, but says each case is reviewed individually to ensure due process was followed.
