Corruption corrodes the public trust in countries rich and poor. Under the leadership of Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer, the Justice Department’s Criminal Division has made the fight against corruption, at home and abroad, a top priority – through the prosecution of federal, state, and local public officials, and those engaged in international commercial bribery; by assisting foreign countries to increase their ability to build cases and prosecute them; and by working to identify and forfeit the proceeds of foreign officials who engage in corruption in their home countries. Assistant Attorney General Breuer shares the DOJ perspective on American anticorruption efforts.
