Ex-ICC Prosecutor Targets Foreign Fraud
The former chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court is teaming with a New York law firm to build a global whistle-blower practice, Reuters reported this week.
Luis Moreno-Ocampo, 60, who left the ICC in June after nine years, will be working with Getnick & Getnick to bring whistle-blower cases that originate in foreign countries. A provision of the Dodd-Frank Act allows such actions to be tried in U.S. courts so long as there is a basis for jurisdiction.
“I don’t think there will be a global court for (attacking fraud),” Moreno-Ocampo told Reuters. “That is why the idea to use this law could be a global approach using U.S. judges.”
