Details on new report on SEC from Probes Reporter
The report is titled A Failure of Transparency: The Securities and Exchange Commission and a Pattern and Practice of FOIA Violation and details the methods by which the SEC intentionally hides important information regarding investigations of publicly traded companies under its purview. The report highlights:
- “The SEC’s refusal to disclose “Case Closing Recommendations,” which are government documents that summarize why an SEC investigation was opened, the investigator’s factual findings and the conclusions reached.
- Repeatedly making false or incomplete statements regarding the existence of documents related to SEC investigations.
- Blatant disregard for the President’s instruction to federal agencies to disclose documents that are within the agency’s discretion to do so.”
