US Charges Against Former Hong Kong and Senegalese Officials Focus on Extraterritorial Jurisdiction

December 6, 2017

O’Melveny partner Ron Cheng’s latest column for Forbes.com discusses recent charges against former Hong Kong Secretary for Home Affairs Chi Ping “Patrick” Ho and Cheikh Gadio, a former Senegalese official, alleging international money laundering and violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

“The case is notable, not only given its unusual facts, but because it raises new issues and echoes themes familiar to those who follow anti-corruption enforcement,” Cheng writes in the December 6, 2017,  column.

Cheng handles both anti-corruption and data security and privacy matters, and is co-located in Hong Kong and Los Angeles.
