US: Oxfam America seeks court order to have Securities Exchange Commission implement transparency law

Details

Oxfam America has gone to court seeking court order to have Securities Exchange Commission implement transparency law which was passed by Congress five years ago and was supposed to be implemented within 270 days. Oxfam says that the delay in implementation allows secrecy under which international mining companies continue to bribe foreign governments and exploit mineral extraction. As a result, developing countries are losing about $ 1 trillion every year. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/raymond-c-offenheiser/secs-waiting-game-must-end-for-oil-mining-transparency_
