Washington, DC | November 5, 2019 – Stephen M. Kohn, the board chairman and co-founder of The National Whistleblower Center and partner at whistleblower rights law firm of Kohn, Kohn & Colapinto, will join the 8th Annual Offshore Alert Conference on November 11th in London, United Kingdom to speak on the panel: “How Non-U.S. Citizens Can Participate in U.S. Whistleblower Rewards Programs.” The OffShore Alert Conference Europe will be held at Leonardo Royal London St. Paul’s from November 11-12, 2019 in London.
Kohn, a leading whistleblower attorney, will speak at 2:45PM GMT (10:45AM ET) leading discussion on U.S. whistleblower programs that have awarded non-U.S. citizens millions of dollars in compensation for reporting overseas violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and other major anti-corruption laws, including securities and commodities violations, money laundering, bank secrecy, and tax evasion, according to a press release from Kohn, Kohn, & Colapinto. Key U.S. anti-corruption laws allow non-U.S. citizens to receive monetary rewards for blowing the whistle and providing original information about fraud. Financial awards are critical in incentivizing whistleblowers to come forward and expose corruption and misconduct.
On international whistleblower law, Stephen Kohn said: “It is absolutely essential that international whistleblowers understand how they can use U.S. laws to safely report corruption, protect themselves and qualify for large financial rewards.”
Kohn continued, saying: “European whistleblower laws are behind the times. The modern whistleblower reward laws have transnational application and can result in non-US citizens obtaining large financial compensation for reporting frauds, including violation of the FCPA, money laundering, and bank secrecy. To fight corruption effectively, the circulation of information regarding the transnational impact of U.S. reward laws is imperative.”
