English term or phrase:corrupt payment
In a sentence such as:
XXX made a corrupt payment pf 5 million dollars to YYY.
XXX authorized a corrupt payment.
I am proofreading a text, and I am very reluctant to forgive the awkward الدفع الفاسد. I hate it whole-heartedly.
Now, my other option would be to simply replace with bribe رشوة. But things are not that easy, there is a a reason why the term "corrupt" appears in the English source. The text is an explication of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act" (FCPA) in the US. So, the word "corrupt" here is essential. That is why I am trying to come up with a workaround for the phrase that would salvage "corrupt", but still flow nicely.
On a different note, happy Ramadan to all friends and colleagues :)
