Dear Clients,

After the expansion of the criminal complaint against the RCM platform, we received inquiries from victims regarding the jurisdiction of courts when filing a collective criminal complaint or a civil lawsuit.

Yes, it is possible to file a collective lawsuit in one country if multiple individuals from different countries have been affected. This is often referred to as a “transnational collective lawsuit” or “class action lawsuit”.

In some countries, there are specific regulations that govern this type of lawsuit. For example, in the United States, there is a Federal law on class actions that enables affected parties to join together and file a lawsuit against a common adversary.

It is important to note that there are several factors that influence the success of a class action lawsuit, including evidence of the harm or loss suffered by the affected parties, relevant laws, and rules of procedure in the states where the lawsuit is filed.

However, it should be noted that resolving transnational class action lawsuits is a highly complex issue that requires specific knowledge and experience in international law and procedural rules. In addition, different countries have different laws and regulations on this issue, which further complicates the process.

This is one of the reasons why these proceedings often take a long time. In the end, the outcome is important because after the conclusion of the proceedings, the victims are compensated and the costs are reimbursed.
