“Today’s charge represents the commitment of the Department of Justice and its law enforcement partners to uncovering and prosecuting cheaters who corrupt our financial and capital markets,” said Assistant Attorney General Makan Delrahim of the Justice Department’s Antitrust Division.  “Complex financial markets are not beyond the reach of the antitrust laws.  The Antitrust Division will aggressively pursue criminals in technically complicated markets, including those that some wrongly presume may be beyond detection or the reach of antitrust enforcement.”
