The movement to use anticorruption enforcement proceeds for the benefit of corruption's true victims is gaining ever more momentum.
I’ve previously argued -- following the DOJ’s lead -- that the governments in developing countries are usually better understood as the co-conspirators in a bribery scheme than as the victims. So if we want to remedy the harms that resulted from particular bribes, we can’t go through them.
Last post, I discussed the proposal from Nigeria’s Social-Economic Rights and Accountability Project to establish a mechanism for using the proceeds of FCPA settlements to help bribery victims.
