Whistleblowers have been the key to ending financial crimes worldwide. Recently we have seen Russian criminals use their money, and the profits of their crimes, to fuel conflict and fund illicit activities in an attempt to invade Ukraine. Money Laundering is a serious financial crime, and currently whistleblowers who report these violations are not adequately protected or provided for.
On June 22, the House Committee on Financial Services unanimously approved HR. 7195 to go to a House vote. This important move represents major progress on a bill which would create huge wins for Anti-Money Laundering whistleblowers in two key-ways: it establishes a mandatory minimum for whistleblower awards and establishes a fund specifically for paying out these awards. Both of these elements are essential for a successful whistleblower program.
These critical amendments would increase the likelihood that whistleblowers would come forward about serious crimes that undermine our democracy.
The House Committee on Financial Services Approved this Bill Unanimously, and Now is the Time to Celebrate!
Take action today! Thank your representatives for their of support H.R. 7195 and the Anti-Money Laundering whistleblower program, and encourage them to continue that support until this bill becomes law!
It's critical these changes are implemented as soon as possible, and your action is needed today.
Recognition and appreciation are critical to incentivize continued support for whistleblower protections - and it feels good!
Whistleblowers who know about financial violations that fund the war in Ukraine have already made a huge impact on the success of U.S. sanctions, and these amendments would encourage even more whistleblowers to come forward. Show your representatives that their decisions matter, by saying thank you!
