Official Reinforces DOJ’s Commitment to Rigorous Enforcement of the FCPA
In a speech at the Global Anti-Corruption Compliance Congress, then acting Assistant Attorney General Mythili Raman offered a complete endorsement of the Department of Justice’s (“DOJ’s”) rigorous enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”). She set forth DOJ’s rationale for its robust prosecution of FCPA cases and clearly indicated DOJ’s intent to continue its vigorous prosecution. Characterizing FCPA enforcement not just as a “priority,” but as a “baseline imperative,” Assistant Attorney General Raman promised that DOJ will continue to employ a “multi-faceted approach” in fighting global corruption.
