On March 24, leading whistleblower attorney Stephen M. Kohn of Kohn, Kohn & Colapinto will speak at the virtual web panel discussion “Avenues for Tackling the Corruption that Enables Environmental Crime.” The webinar, which is organized by the International Anti-Corruption Academy (IACA) and the Wildlife Justice Commission (WTC), features expert panelists presenting concrete avenues to tackle the nexus between environmental crime and corruption.

“Protecting whistleblowers is a cornerstone to stopping illegal deforestation, IUU fishing and wildlife trafficking,” says Kohn, an expert on both anti-corruption whistleblowing and environmental whistleblowing. “It is imperative that those fighting these crimes know how they can use whistleblower laws to be effective.”

Kohn will be joined on the panel by Maria Adomeit, Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice Officer for the Corruption and Economic Crime Branch at the UNODC, and Hendelene Prinsloo, Senior Intelligence Analyst at the Wildlife Justice Commission. The event will be moderated by Syeda Mehar Zehra, CAMS MLRO & Manager – AML/Sanctions Compliance at HBL Bank Pakistan.

The webinar will take place on March 24 at 9:00 am EDT. Register for the event here.
