Top U.S. prosecutor, Mythili Raman, leaving Justice Department

Acting Assistant Attorney General Mythili Raman of the Department of Justice’s Criminal Division announced on Wednesday that she is leaving the agency, effective March 21, 2014.

Under her leadership for the past year, the Criminal Division charged or convicted more than a dozen individuals for FCPA-related violations, and secured three of the ten of the biggest corporate FCPA resolutions ever involving a unit of Alcoa, France’s Total SA, and Weatherford International.

Attorney General Eric Holder said, “From combating financial and health care fraud, to fighting foreign and domestic corruption, and safeguarding the American people from crime and drug-fueled violence, Mythili’s tenure as head of the Criminal Division has been defined by extraordinary achievements.”

The 17-year Justice Department veteran served for a year as the acting chief after her predecessor, Lanny Breuer, left the agency last year.

A Senate panel Thursday will consider President Obama’s nominee to head the Criminal Division, Leslie Caldwell, a former federal prosecutor who led the DOJ’s Task Force that investigated and prosecuted Enron Corp.

Raman told Reuters that she has not decided what her next career move will be, but she anticipates returning to the agency down the line.

The DOJ’s press release announcing Mythili Raman’s departure can be found here.
