Thomas Fox

In an article published in the August 30, 2011 Wall Street Journal, entitled “Iran’s Hong Kong Shipping Shell Game”, Claudia Rosett reported on efforts by Iran to reflag ships to companies with Hong Kong registries. While the focus of the article seemed to point to the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) sanctions against US companies doing business with Iran, and other trade sanctions issues, there was one paragraph that spoke to issue of due diligence under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). The FCPA issue raised is that of continued due diligence of an agent after a contract is signed and the relationship established.
