STATEMENT BY FinCEN REGARDING UNLAWFULLY DISCLOSED SAR

A news release from FinCEN on 1 September says that the agency is aware that various media outlets intend to publish a series of articles based on unlawfully disclosed SAR, as well as other sensitive government documents, from several years ago.  It warns that the unauthorised disclosure of SAR is a crime that can impact the national security of the US, compromise law enforcement investigations, and threaten the safety and security of the institutions and individuals who file such reports.  FinCEN has referred the matter to the DoJ and the US Treasury’s Office of Inspector General.
