Julian Smith and Stephen Kohn

British Member of Parliament Julian Smith (left in photo) today visited Stephen Kohn (right in photo) the Executive Director of the National Whistleblowers Center. Mr. Smith asked for the meeting to discuss how the United Kingdom might benefit from improved laws for whistleblowers and from an advocacy organization like NWC. Mr. Kohn explained how the United States has benefited from the False Claims Act, and has even used that law as a model for reward programs in the Dodd-Frank Act and in the Internal Revenue Service.
