Attorney General Merrick Garland on Thursday touted the U.S. Justice Department’s efforts to counter corporate crime, emphasizing prosecutions against individuals and a crackdown on pandemic relief fraud.

“As a defense attorney, prosecutor and judge, I have also seen the Justice Department’s interest in prosecuting corporate crime wax and wane over time,” Garland said in an address to the American Bar Associations’ White Collar Crime Institute. “Today, it is waxing again.”
