According to the Department of Justice, the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) "requires certain agents of foreign principals who are engaged in political activities or other activities specified under the statute to make periodic public disclosure of their relationship with the foreign principal, as well as activities, receipts and disbursements in support of those activities." A person who willfully violates any provision of FARA or a FARA regulation is subject to criminal and civil penalties.
