As highlighted in this prior post, in connection with the May 2022 Glencore FCPA enforcement action, the majority owners of Crusader Health (Ian and Laureth Hagen) petitioned the court in the underlying enforcement action to file a restitution claim under the Mandatory Victims Restitution Act (MVRA) and the Crime Victims Act on the basis that the entity was a victim of Glencore’s conduct in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The court granted the petition.
As highlighted in this prior post, Glencore acknowledged “that Crusader—and by extension, the Hagens—was harmed by the offense to which Glencore has pled guilty, and it is prepared to pay restitution in the amount of any loss directly and proximately caused by that offense.” However, Glencore disputed the amount of restitution properly owed.
Recently, the court awarded Crusader restitution of approximately $29.7 million (an amount less than the approximate $48.4 – $50.3 million Crusader sought). See U.S. v. Glencore International 2023 WL 2242469.
