FBI Creates Squads in 3 U.S. Cities to Tackle International Corruption

The FBI is increasing its arsenal against international corruption by creating three squads tasked with rooting out bribery cases that happen overseas but have repercussions for the U.S., the Associated Press report.

Corruption in foreign countries is becoming a bigger focus of the FBI’s because of the expansion of the global economy, where corruption can have a rippling effect.

The initiative calls for sending about 30 agents to squads based in New York, Washington and Los Angeles.

“Corruption leads to lack of confidence in government. Lack of confidence in government leads to failed states. Failed states lead to terror and national security issues,” said Jeffrey Sallet, chief of the FBI’s public corruption and civil rights section, in an interview with the AP.

The mission of the three squads is to enforce the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, which bars the bribery of foreign government officials.
