SEC never discloses details about whistleblowers.
At the same time, the Commission itself never discloses any details concerning whistleblowers. The SEC press release only says that without the insider's help in this particular case it was extremely difficult to identify a law violation on the securities market. Monsanto earlier this year was forced to pay a fine of $ 80 million to drop the charges of the wrong account of millions discounts for buyers of herbicides, which led to an overstatement of revenues.

Frank Act). This was told to the SW by Deputy managing director of the law enforcement of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Yury Zelinsky.
The law says that volunteers-whistleblowers, if their information about law violations is confirmed, should receive 10 - 30 %% of the amount of fines paid by the company-violator. Totally SEC received 14 thousand tips.
At the same time, in NSSMC is already working on development of a mechanism to receive reports of violations on the securities market. In July, this year, the press service of NSSMC clarified that in the fourth quarter it is planned to bring to discussion the relevant bill to combat market abuse. Now it is under construction.
