839. Report Of Violations

It is immaterial, when prosecuting an offender under any of the criminal provisions, whether the procedure set forth in 18 U.S.C. §  3057(a) has or has not been followed. Dean v. United States, 51 F.2d 481 (9th Cir. 1931). This section does not confer any procedural rights upon a defendant relating to Speedy Trial or pre-indictment delay. United States v. Filiberti, 353 F. Supp. 252 (D.Conn. 1973).

To facilitate the investigations required by § 3057(a) the court in In re Stockbridge Funding Company, 153 B.R. 654 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. 1993), extended a "bankruptcy crimes investigatory privilege" to a Chapter 11 trustee who had reported a suspected crime. The full extent of coverage of this privilege has been left open.
