Letter from the Editor, February 2015
In this issue, Carlos Rivas examines developments in El Salvador mark a new era for the country. Changes to the Money Laundering and Assets Act, as demanded by the Millennium Challenge Corporation in return for a potential US$277 million in project funding, and the country taking on the presidency of the Caribbean Financial Action Task Force are positive steps towards redressing the country’s poor image.
We are delighted to be able to offer you a 15% discount on Momentum’s annual Anti-Corruption & Export Controls Summit (ACES Summit) on 21 and 22 April 2015 in McLean, Virginia, USA. The Summit will be of value to leaders and practitioners within the international trade community who specialise in anti-corruption, export controls or sanctions management.
In addition to plenary and track sessions, interactive round table discussions and opportunities to network, the Summit also includes an exclusive session in which former FCPA prosecutor Billy Jacobson will interview Richard Bistrong, who he targeted for prosecution in a 2007 FCPA investigation. Mr Bistrong will reflect on how he “rationalised” bribery on the front lines of international business, which ultimately led to 14 months imprisonment. The discussion will cover the process of “flipping” Mr Bistrong and convincing him to cooperate undercover.
