SEC awards $3.5 million to whistleblower, denies two other claims

Nueva recompensa de la SEC, por 3,5 millones de dólares a un denunciante que ha proporcionado información sustancial para poder investigar un caso de fraude. En este artículo se comenta que la agencia protege la identidad del denunciante. Como en otras ocasiones, ponemos de manifiesto que el mejor instrumento para salvaguardar el anonimato de las denuncias es el Canal Ético.

The Securities and Exchange Commission Monday awarded a whistleblower about $3.5 million for original information that led to a successful enforcement action. Two other whistleblowers had their claims denied, and one of them appealed the decision.

Thirty-six SEC whistleblowers have now collected about $135 million since the first award in 2012.
