Giuliani to Advise Japan: Former Manhattan U.S. Attorney Rudolph Giuliani, who led a crackdown on white-collar crime during his five-year tenure, says he will travel to Japan next month to offer advice on prosecuting insider trading and other securities fraud. The Japanese government is embroiled in a stock scandal of its own that has implicated government officials and is putting pressure on Prime Minister Noboru Takeshita. Giuliani, whose office brought about 50 securities fraud indictments in his term that ended in January, said he was contacted by private attorneys in Japan and will lecture to officials in Tokyo April 13-14. “I think it’s very, very important for the United States that in other countries that are part of the world market that we have a similar set of rules,” he said. “Otherwise we’re at a competitive disadvantage.” Japan has the world’s biggest stock market.
