The U.S. government has launched a formal criminal and civil investigation into the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday.

Holder said during a trip to New Orleans that the government was reviewing whether BP and federal regulators had violated federal laws in the lead-up to the explosion of a BP-leased rig in April, which triggered the massive, ongoing oil spill.

“We will make certain that those responsible clean up the mess they have made and restore or replace the natural resources lost or injured in this tragedy,” Holder said in his remarks. “And we will prosecute to the full extent any violations of the law.”

Holder delivered his remarks following a meeting in Louisiana with prosecutors from Gulf Coast regions, which have been affected by the aftermath of the ecological disaster.

“[A]s we have said all along, we must also ensure that anyone found responsible for this spill is held accountable,” Holder said. “That means enforcing the appropriate civil — and if warranted, criminal — authorities to the full extent of the law.”
