LEIGH SALES, PRESENTER: An Australian construction manager has been arrested in India on corruption
charges.

Sixty-year-old Neil Campbell allegedly asked for a bribe of US $190,000 while working for the
International Organisation for Migration in Afghanistan.

The US Justice Department says he sought the money from an undercover agent.

The IOM says it will fully cooperate with the investigation.

officials working for the organisation or by consultants who are in fact working for other
organisations.

confirm the man's identity but is seeking consular access.
