Jersey has been given $2.5m from the United States government for its help in prosecuting a fraudster who ran a multi-million dollar illegal betting business.
Officials from the US embassy in London visited the island earlier this month to hand a cheque to Attorney General Tim Le Cocq. Jersey assisted an international investigation into the activities of American Gary Kaplan, who was sent to prison for four years in November 2009 and ordered to hand over $50m to the US authorities.
The funds given to Jersey will be paid into the island's Criminal Offences Confiscation Fund, which pays for projects to fight crime.
Kaplan founded the now-defunct internet gambling company BetOnSports, which broke numerous US anti-corruption laws.
