On March 30, the FBI announced that it was establishing three dedicated international corruption squads—based in its New York City, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C. offices—to prosecute both individuals paying bribes and foreign officials that accept them.  The squads will consist of agents, analysts, and other professional staff with experience investigating white-collar crimes and will use court-authorized wiretaps, undercover operations, and informants in order to gather and develop evidence.  The newly announced squads will work in conjunction with DOJ’s Fraud Section, the SEC’s FCPA Unit, and overseas law-enforcement counterparts.
