U.S.’s new fraud chief will enforce laws he was paid to blunt
Bloomberg - 02/27/2015
Dan Danielsen, a Northeastern University law professor, co-authored a paper for the Open Society Foundations that took issue with the Weissmann report. It concluded that the proposals would “set back decades of progress in the global struggle against corruption.”
Danielsen said in an interview that his review of cases brought under the foreign bribery law showed scant evidence to prove the contention that prosecutors were going overboard.
“We just didn’t see the DOJ being crazy zealous or unreasonable in these cases,” he said.
