Robert Targ, Diaz Reus International Law Firm & Alliance founding partner, moderated the 20th Annual FIBA AML Compliance Conference panel about Recent investigative trends and enforcement actions with respect to international corruption.
There have been an increasing number of federal criminal investigations, criminal prosecutions, and significant asset seizures in the United States, and particularly in South Florida, arising out of complex international corruption schemes that have involved banks and financial institutions doing business in the U.S., Latin America and the Caribbean. The panelists were composed of representatives of Homeland Security (HSI), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and the Department of Justice (DOJ), sharing their unique and very timely insight into recent anti-corruption enforcement actions and the latest investigative trends that potentially impact the banks and financial institutions globally:
