UK Fraud whistleblowers need bounties, lawyers say
November 16, 2011
Jordan A. Thomas explains the importance of providing incentives for whistleblowers, particularly in the UK.
"The problem that law enforcement agencies in the UK and the US have traditionally struggled with is the lack of actionable intelligence," he says. "The whistleblower provisions, and specifically the bounty provisions, provide a meaningful incentive that will make individuals speak up when in the past they've been silent."
