The founder and former CEO of New York-based Global Sustainability Foundation, Shiwei Yan, admitted to bribing a United Nations official and “funding his lifestyle.” Yan pleaded guilty to bribery charges Friday and said she arranged $800,000 in illegal payments to former General Assembly President John Ashe.
