Abstract

Jimmy Gurulé was quoted in the Premium Times (Nigeria) article INVESTIGATION: Files Open New Window on $182-Million Halliburton Bribery Scandal in Nigeria on February 10.

“If a bank has reason to believe that funds are in any way related to criminal activity, then any transfers in and out of the account should be reported,” Jimmy Gurulé, a professor at Notre Dame University and a former assistant U.S. attorney, said in an interview with ICIJ.

“Banks should not permit their clients to benefit from dirty money,” Gurulé said, adding that the fact the account was later seized by authorities “raises some red flags over why the bank concluded the account wasn’t linked to criminal activity and authorized the sale.”
