A frequent complaint from companies is that while they are held to account for corruption issues, some of them minor or remote, the bribe-takers are rarely punished. A recent conviction of a former foreign official shows that the DOJ has heard these concerns and is putting resources – including the three international corruption squads at the FBI – to work targeting corrupt foreign officials. Mahmoud Thiam, a former Minister of Mines and Geology of the Republic of Guinea, was recently found guilty of one count of transacting in criminally derived property and one count of money-laundering. We analyze the case and its implications for future enforcement. See “DOJ Seeks to Reassure on FCPA Enforcement” (Apr. 26, 2017).
