More exciting counter-kleptocracy news, folks! Three strong counter-kleptocracy bills have been put forward as two amendments to the must-pass national defense bill – the TRAP Act, the Combating Global Corruption Act, and the CROOK Act!…
Amendment 259 sponsored by @RepCohen includes both the TRAP Act to curb INTERPOL abuse and the Combating Global Corruption, which would generate public country-by-country anti-corruption compliance reports
Amendment 422 sponsored by @USRepKeating would create an anti-corruption rapid response fund financed by the worst corporate bribery offenders – the bill would also streamline U.S. work to build the rule of law abroad
Already, the Foreign Corruption Accountability Act – public visa bans against corrupt officials – and the Justice for Victims of Kleptocracy Act – transparency in asset recovery – have been added to the national defense bill
This national defense bill is shaping up to be one of the strongest counter-kleptocracy initiatives ever – and coming immediately on the heels of Congress’s and the President’s declarations that corruption is a national security threat
