Defense News: “Despite Brexit, France Wants to Include UK in European Defense Efforts”

 
France is seeking a greater integrated European defense and has invited Britain to play a role, despite its plan to leave the European Union, said French President François Hollande, The Guardian daily reported Monday.
 
The U.K. has close bilateral defense ties with France, which explains the French invitation to take part in “a more integrated European defense policy” despite London’s EU departure, the report said.
 
  “In my mind, the U.K., even outside the E.U., should be associated with that,” Hollande was quoted as saying.
 
France is drawing on concerns over the Trump administration’s loosening of international ties to boost the move toward greater defense cooperation in Europe, the report said. 
 
  “As for his (U.S. President Donald Trump’s) ignorance of what the European Union is, that means we must prove to him the E.U.’s political cohesion, its economic weight and its strategic autonomy,” Hollande reportedly said. Europe must seek to avoid a “submissive” role arising from a dependence on outside powers, he added.
 
London has long resisted a drive from Paris for a stronger European military cooperation, as NATO and Washington’s leading role in the transatlantic alliance have been the reference point for British policy.
 
Hollande spoke to The Guardian and four other European papers – Le Monde, La Vanguardia, La Stampa and Süddeutsche Zeitung – ahead of a mini-summit Monday with the leaders of Germany, Italy and Spain at Versailles, just west of the capital. 
 
Britain and France, seen as the leading military powers in Europe, signed in 2010 the Lancaster House defense treaty, seeking to boost bilateral cooperation in operations and industrial efforts, including nuclear weapons research.
 
Meanwhile, Germany opposes a French and Italian proposal to use government-backed bonds in the capital markets to fund a planned €5 billion (U.S. $5.3 billion) EU defense research fund, Reuters reported.
 
Such funding would “violate the basic principles of good budget practices and therefore is not a viable option for financing European defense efforts,” Handelsblatt reported, quoting a German government paper, according to Reuters. 
 
Germany also objected to national contributions to the EU defense fund to be exempt from the European stability and growth requirements, which seek to reduce the national debt to 3 percent of gross domestic product, Reuters reported. The European Commission proposed the fund in November as a cost-cutting measure, allowing European states to buy together helicopters and planes. 
 

France and Italy backed the commission proposal to allow the fund to be raised by government-backed issuance on capital markets, Reuters reported.

Defense News: “UN Report Shows North Korea Using Africa to Slip Sanctions”

(Source:
Defense News) [Excerpts.]
 
North Korean weapons barred by U.N. sanctions ended up in the hands of U.N. peacekeepers in Africa, a confidential report says. That incident and others in more than a half-dozen African nations show how North Korea, despite facing its toughest sanctions in decades, continues to avoid them on the world’s most impoverished continent with few repercussions.
 
The annual report by a U.N. panel of experts on North Korea, obtained by The Associated Press, illustrates how Pyongyang evades sanctions imposed for its nuclear and ballistic missile programs to cooperate “on a large scale,” including military training and construction, in countries from Angola to Uganda.  . . . .

The Salt Lake Tribute: “Man Put on Probation For Trying to Export Rifles to Belarus”

 
A United Arab Emirates man who admitted he conspired to export sniper rifles from the United States to Belarus has been sentenced by a federal judge in Utah to five years of probation.
 
U.S. District Judge Dee Benson also ordered Kolar Rahman Anees Ur Rahman to forfeit more than $13,000 he sent to an undercover Department of Homeland Security agent as payment for the unlawful shipment of the weapons to the eastern European country.
 
Rahman, 47, was indicted in December 2015 with conspiracy to commit an offense against the United States, violating the Arms Export Control Act, smuggling goods from the United States and money laundering. He pleaded guilty to the four counts and was sentenced Jan. 30. …

ST&R Trade Report: “Trade Policy Agenda Vows to Defend U.S. Sovereignty, Open Export Markets”

 
The Trump administration intends to pursue “a new trade policy” that defends U.S. sovereignty, enforces U.S. trade laws, uses leverage to open foreign markets, and negotiates new trade agreements that are fairer and more effective for both the U.S. and the world trading system, according to the annual trade policy agenda the White House submitted to Congress March 2. The agenda contrasts this approach with that of the past 20+ years, which focused on “trade policies that emphasized multilateral and other agreements designed to promote incremental change in foreign trade practices, as well as deference to international dispute settlement mechanisms” but too often put the U.S. “at an unfair disadvantage in global markets.” The “overarching purpose” of this new policy, the agenda states, will be to “increase [U.S.] economic growth, promote job creation in the United States, promote reciprocity with our trading partners, strengthen our manufacturing base and our ability to defend ourselves, and expand our agricultural and services industry exports.” 
 
Asserting U.S. Sovereignty. The administration is committed to “aggressively defend U.S. national sovereignty over trade policy” by resisting efforts by other countries or international bodies like the World Trade Organization to “advance interpretations that would weaken the rights and benefits of, or increase the obligations under, the various trade agreements to which the United States is a party.” The agenda highlights the “clear and express legal limitation” in the WTO’s Dispute Settlement Understanding that WTO dispute settlement findings or recommendations may not add to or diminish U.S. rights or obligations under the WTO agreements. It also points out that adverse WTO decisions do not automatically lead to a change in U.S. law or practice.
 
Addressing Unfair Trade Practices. Proclaiming it “essential to both the United States and the world trading system that all U.S. trade laws be strictly and effectively enforced,” the administration pledges to “act aggressively as needed” against the unfair trade practices that have distorted important sectors of the global economy and significant markets around the world, including foreign government subsidies, theft of intellectual property, currency manipulation, unfair competitive behavior by state-owned enterprises, violations of labor laws, and use of forced labor. Tools that may be used in this effort include the following.
 
  – Antidumping and countervailing duty laws, noting that the Department of Commerce has the right to self-initiate AD/CV cases if circumstances warrant;
  – Section 201 safeguards that may be imposed if increasing imports are a substantial cause of serious injury to a domestic industry; and
  – Section 301 actions in response to foreign actions that violate an international trade agreement or are unjustifiable, unreasonable, or discriminatory and burden or restrict U.S. commerce, which when “properly used … can be a powerful lever to encourage foreign countries to adopt more market-friendly policies”
 
Opening Foreign Markets. The agenda states that exports of manufactured goods, agricultural products, and services are “an important and essential aspect of the U.S. economy” and that the administration will “use all possible leverage to encourage other countries to give U.S. producers fair, reciprocal access to their markets.” Among the challenges the administration will seek to address as part of this effort are lack of adherence to free-market principles and insufficiently transparent legal and regulatory systems.
 
The agenda also pledges a “major review of how we approach trade agreements” because the results of existing agreements “have often not lived up to expectations.” For example, the U.S. has seen slower economic growth, lower median incomes, higher trade deficits, and a sharp net loss of manufacturing jobs. The administration’s new approach will focus on negotiating bilateral (rather than multilateral) trade agreements, particularly with countries committed to a market-based economy.

ST&R Trade Report: “CBP to Focus on Enforcement, Facilitation, Regulatory Burdens to Promote Economic Growth”

 
Federal officials said recently that the trade community can expect to see a continued emphasis on both enforcement and facilitation, including a renewed effort to lower regulatory burdens, as part of the Trump administration’s focus on promoting economic growth.
 
Acting U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan told a meeting of the Commercial Customs Operations Advisory Committee that new Department of Homeland Security John Kelly will be a major supporter of CBP’s dual roles of enforcing U.S. trade laws and facilitating legitimate trade. Both are needed to help U.S. companies be competitive in the global marketplace, which is vital to the president’s goals of increasing domestic economic growth and employment. Christa Brzozowski, deputy assistant secretary of homeland security, trade and transport, and Daniel Ragsdale, deputy director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said ensuring trade compliance will be a priority for their agencies as well.
 
Enforcement. McAleenan said CBP will continue to focus on implementation of the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act. In a recent blog post McAleenan reviewed CBP’s progress in this area over the past year, including electronic filing of allegations of evasion of antidumping and countervailing duty orders, utilizing enhanced authorities to protect intellectual property rights, and issuing withhold release orders on several commodities from China over concerns about forced labor.
 
Leaders of COAC’s Trade Enforcement and Revenue Collection Subcommittee noted that they have been considering a number of TFTEA-related items to ensure transparency and dialogue between CBP and the trade community. These include CBP’s joint strategic plan on trade enforcement, which is currently under review by DHS; the importer of record program, which is dependent on CBP’s new Form 5106 being discussed with the Office of Management and Budget; importer risk assessment, which a CBP internal working group is currently reviewing; and the establishment of a Trade Remedy Law Enforcement Directorate within CBP’s Office of Trade, which will assume the former Commercial Targeting & Enforcement responsibilities plus the newly established Enforce and Protect Act branch for AD/CV duty evasion allegations.
 
Facilitation. With respect to trade facilitation, McAleenan noted that 100 percent of all pre-release functionality within the Automated Commercial Environment has been deployed along with 85 percent of post-release functionality. CBP is still working to determine an effective date for the final deployment and will advise the trade community at least 30 days ahead of time through a Federal Register notice.
 
Both Brzozowski and Tim Skud, deputy assistant secretary of the treasury for tax, trade, and tariff policy, said one of the ways the new administration will actively seek to facilitate trade is by eliminating, simplifying, or streamlining regulations that make it difficult for importers and exporters to do business. President Trump recently directed the establishment of regulatory reform teams within federal agencies to focus on this task, and Brzozowski and Skud invited the trade community to submit their ideas to DHS and Treasury. COAC’s Trade Modernization Subcommittee, co-chaired by ST&R attorney Lenny Feldman, is also working on various ways to reduce trade-related regulation and cost, such as modernizing CBP’s revenue collection process and accelerating the agency’s issuance of rulings.

COMMCOMMENTARY

COMM_a111.

M. Volkov: “DOJ Compliance Expectations Concerning Training, Internal Investigations and Audits (Part IV of IV)”

(Source:
Volkov Law Group Blog. Reprinted by permission.)
 
* Author: Michael Volkov, Esq., Volkov Law Group,
mvolkov@volkovlaw.com, 240-505-1992.
 
[Editor’s note: This commentary is the final part of a series of items concerning this topic.  Part I, II and III were posted in The Daily Bugle of 1, 2 and 3 March 2017, respectively.]
 
DOJ’s Compliance Evaluation questions provide important indications of “new” trends and approaches to compliance functions and issues.
 
Training
 
In the area of training, DOJ’s Compliance Evaluation reiterates DOJ’s concern that companies tailor their training programs to their specific risk profile. In the FCPA Guidance issued in 2012, DOJ explained that training programs should be tailored to specific audiences.
 
DOJ has refined this requirement to focus on training “employees in relevant control functions”? This refinement is more significant than first appears. An accounts payable employee serves in a “relevant control function” involving the payment of money to vendors and suppliers. An employee responsible for third party due diligence checks serves in  a “relevant control function” responsible for third party risk management. The list continues with a large number of “relevant control parties.” Companies have to design a variety of training programs to address these specific risks and controls.
 
Companies have to ensure that they provide training in different languages, as needed, and they have to measure the overall effectiveness of their training programs. Similarly, companies have to make sure that employs can access guidance on legal and compliance issues.
 
Reporting Misconduct and Investigations
 
In a shot against legal and internal audit departments, DOJ’s Compliance Evaluation asks whether compliance has had full access to reporting and investigative information. Turf battles are often fought over these issues, and DOJ is clearly stating that the compliance function has to receive access to investigative information.
 
Companies often fall short on their internal investigation functions, failing to make sure they are conducted properly, fairly, independently, and consistently across the organization. DOJ’s questions reiterate the importance of meeting such standards when conducting internal investigations.
 
DOJ’s Compliance Evaluation reiterates the importance of sharing investigative findings with senior leadership, addressing compliance concerns raised by internal investigations and understanding senior management and supervisory lapses that may have occurred when investigating misconduct.
 
Discipline and Incentives
 
DOJ’s Compliance Evaluation requires careful evaluation of misconduct and accountability of managers and employees. In particular, DOJ emphasized the importance of disciplining supervisors for failures to exercise proper supervision. In this context, DOJ stated that it expects companies to keep track and weigh its overall disciplinary program to ensure consistent treatment and accountability for misconduct.
 
In addressing the discipline process, DOJ expects to see a broad range of functions (e.g. human resources, compliance, legal) involved in the review of discipline. In promoting the discipline and consequences functions, DOJ included questions concerning disclosure of disciplinary actions to communicate to managers and employees the importance of ethical conduct.
 
DOJ reiterated the importance of creating positive incentives for ethical behavior.
 
Audit Function
 
Interestingly, DOJ’s Compliance Evaluation includes a detailed set of questions concerning a company’s audit function. These questions show that DOJ is embracing a robust examination of the company’s audit function, in recognition of the growing importance of monitoring and auditing to the overall effectiveness of a company’s compliance program.
 
DOJ’s examination includes:
 
  – The number and type of audits, especially in high-risk areas;
  – The reporting of audit findings and remediation progress;
  – The involvement of board and senior management in follow up to audit findings and remediation;
  – The examination of potential misconduct and audit and testing of relevant controls, collection and analysis of compliance data and interviews of employees and third parties; and
  – The testing of controls.
 
DOJ’s analysis suggests that it is focusing on an important relationship – compliance and auditing/monitoring. While companies often coordinate these functions, DOJ is expecting increased collaboration and focus on compliance controls and auditing.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning (née Moulton-Barrett, 6 Mar 1806–29 Jun 1861, was one of the most prominent English poets of the Victorian era, popular in Britain and the United States during her lifetime.)

  – “But the child’s sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!”

 

*
Cyrano de Bergerac (Savinien de Cyrano de Bergerac, 6 Mar 1619 – 28 Jul 1655, was a French novelist, playwright, and epistolarian.)

  – “A large nose is the mark of a witty, courteous, affable, generous, and liberal man.”

Michelangelo (Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simonim; 6 Mar 1475 – 18 Feb 1564, was an Italian sculptor, painter, architect, and poet of the High Renaissance who exerted an unparalleled influence on the development of Western art, and is considered one of the greatest artists of all time. He is often considered the archetypal Renaissance man, along with his rival and fellow Florentine Medici client, Leonardo da Vinci.)

  – “Genius is eternal patience.”

Q. What did the cannibal say to the cannibal who arrived late for dinner?

A. “Where have you been? Everyone’s eaten.”
