Statement from FBI Assistant Director Janice Fedarcyk on the Conviction of Doug Whitman

FBI New York August 20, 2012
  • FBI Public Information Office (212) 384-2100

FBI Assistant Director Janice Fedarcyk issued the following statement:

“Mr. Whitman’s conviction today on all counts is another victory in the FBI’s efforts to clean up corruption and insider trading on Wall Street. Those who break the law should be on notice: It’s not that we haven’t arrested you; it’s that we haven’t arrested you yet. I want to thank our dedicated partners at the Manhattan United States Attorney’s Office for their unwavering commitment to prosecuting these cases. Operation Perfect Hedge and our Galleon probe should continue to serve as a deterrent to anyone who would exploit insider information.”
