Cuban Whistleblowers and International Professionals Can Earn Large Financial Rewards For Properly and Confidentially Exposing Illegal Bribes by Cuba Whistleblower Reward Lawyer

Cuban Whistleblowers and International Professionals With Original Knowledge of Illegal Bribes Can Earn Large Rewards For Properly and Confidentially Exposing Illegal Bribes Paid To Government Officials by Cuba Whistleblower Reward Lawyer and International Bribe Whistleblower Reward Lawyer Jason S. Coomer

The recent lifting of the United States' embargo on Cuba has and is creating an immense opportunity for large multinational corporations to conduct business in Cuba.  This opportunity will create increased competition between businesses for hotel construction contracts, pharmacy contract, public works contracts, procurement contracts, and other lucrative business contracts.  Unfortunately, some multinational corporations will attempt to bribe Cuban government officials in an attempt to obtain some of these lucrative Cuban contracts.  These illegal bribes are against Cuban law as well as the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and be the basis for large financial rewards for Cuban whistleblowers, international professionals, or other individuals who have original first hand knowledge and/or evidence of the bribes.  Under new laws, these whistleblowers can confidentially expose these illegal actions through a lawyer and if filed properly can receive large financial rewards.  For more information on this topic, please read below or click on the following link: Cuba Whistleblower Reward Lawyer.

The SEC Can Award Large Financial Rewards to Whistleblowers Who Properly Expose Significant Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Violations and SEC Violations
Multinational corporations that are registered with the SEC and pay illegal kickbacks and bribes to government officials and former government officials in exchange for contracts including large building projects can be brought to justice and made to pay large penalties under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.  Moreover, whistleblowers that properly expose these bribes and help bring these corporations to justice may be able to collect large economic rewards under the  Securities Exchange Act (SEC Whistleblower Bounty Actions) and the Commodity Exchange Act (CFTC Whisteblower Bounty Actions).

The whistleblower may be entitled to not only the amount of the illegal bribe or kickback, but the benefit of the illegal bribe or kickback.  In cases where $100,000.00 bribe is made to obtain a $100 million building project, the whistleblower may be entitled to 10 to 30% of the $100,000,000.00 and the $100,000.00 translating into an over $10 million to $30 million award.  The laws are set up so that the first person to properly file and expose the illegal bribery scheme is the person that can collect the reward.  For this reason whistleblowers with original information regarding a large bribery scheme are encouraged to move forward in exposing the illegal action.

To obtain a reward the bribe and the benefit of the bribe must be over $1,000,000.00 and the whistleblower must have original information of the illegal actions which helps the SEC.  For more information, please go to the following web site: International Whistleblower Rewards, Exposing International Bribery Schemes, and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
