Federal prosecutors have brought foreign bribery charges against a record number of individuals in 2019, a top Justice Department official said Wednesday.
So far this year, the department has brought international corruption charges against 34 individuals and obtained a record 30 guilty pleas by individuals in similar cases, Brian Benczkowski, assistant attorney general for the criminal division, said. Both numbers are the highest on record.
The figures reflect the Justice Department's recent focus on targeting individuals in foreign bribery cases, while encouraging companies to report misconduct and cooperate with authorities in exchange for leniency.
