p.160 Pre Puzey Act

Note: Recently immunities has been expanded globally without In Country approvals to include violent crimes. This can also lead to not reported crimes being put in both the US federal system and the In Country courts with restricted reporting. The reporter is anonymous and immune. This is mainly done in pursuit of health benefits and FECA benefits that don't require criminal incident police reporting to pay out, sometimes for the life time of the reporter (e.g. PTSD).

See also: Puzey Act and PC worker reporting of HCN persons suspected of crimes by the PC worker and PC worker reporting of suspect to US government via Peace Corps In Country Offices.
