Hold Corrupt Bankers Accountable for Fraud

BARNIER

Target: European Parliament

Goal: Hold corrupt bankers accountable for their fraudulent actions

Big banks have been caught rigging global interest rates and ripping millions of people off, but they still have not been held responsible. Now, the EU finance regulator is standing up to big banks and taking action to bring much-needed reform. Urge the EU to stand up to the powerful bank lobby and hold corrupt bankers accountable.

It is public knowledge that big banks such as Barclays have tweaked global interest rates to receive more money from people paying their mortgages, student loans and other debts. This behavior should be punishable by jail, but Barclays only got fined a small fraction of its profits due to the powerful bank lobby. Considering the waves of banking crises that continue to affect our economies and livelihoods, a small fine is simply unacceptable.

As global outrage mounts, there is a better chance of ensuring justice. The EU finance regulator, Michel Barnier, is taking the lead by championing reform that would put corrupt bankers in jail for the fraud they’ve committed. If the EU Parliament supports Barnier, its influence would surely spread accountability measures to other countries. The EU Parliament has the power to introduce strong legislation against market abuse, including criminal sanctions for bankers who have committed fraud. But banks are lobbying strongly and Barnier needs citizens of the world to stand with him.

Sign the petition below to urge the EU Parliament to support Barnier and lead the world in bringing about much-needed banking reform.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Member of the EU Parliament,

As a citizen concerned with the waves of banking crises that continue to affect our economies and livelihoods, I am calling on you to take the necessary action to ensure that corrupt bankers are held responsible for their actions by introducing strong legislation against market abuse, including criminal sanctions for bankers who have committed fraud.

The EU finance regulator, Michel Barnier, is taking the lead by championing reform that would put corrupt bankers in jail for the fraud they’ve committed. If the EU Parliament supports Barnier, accountability measures would surely spread to other countries. The EU Parliament has the power to introduce the needed legislation. As global outrage continues to mount, this is the time to ensure justice for all the people affected by the actions of corrupt bankers.

I urge you to stand up to the unscrupulous bank lobby and support Barnier in bringing about much-needed reform against market abuse.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
