The US/DOJ reached a settlement to recover over $60 Million in asset civil forfeitures from Wolf of Wall Street Producer Riza Aziz for his role in the #1MDB embezzlement from Malaysia.
The DOJ is looking to forfeit another $300 Million in assets traceable to the #1MDB scandal, including 4 dozen promotional movie posters worth $4 million from Riza Aziz and $300 million being held in a UK escrow account.
The money in the escrow account is traceable back to a line of credit that Venezuela’s PDVSA extended to PetroSaudi, whose CEO is Tarek Obaid. Image

McKinsey & Co. tried to help corrupt fintech company Wirecard purchase Deutsche Bank in an effort that Wirecard hoped would be able to use the chaos of the merger to hide the billions of dollars it had skimmed off from the company! #ButNothingsHappening
ft.com/content/6a660a…
Concealing Wirecard's fraud by gaining €1.4 trillion in Deutsche Bank's assets so that the couple of billion in fraud might get lost on the balance sheet. Wonder how much more fraud they could have pulled off after gaining control of the bank? ImageImage
Only problem was a KPMG audit as a prelude to arranging the financing for the deal showed that €3.2bn in debt raised since 2015 has been “lost”. Including a billion given out as loans to shady shell companies in Asia. ImageImage

Ready to start another thread on the main character here in this case-

Nickie Mali Lum Davis

Actually, she was once called

Nickie Mali Lum Shapira

Yes, you guessed it.

So, she was once married to a guy called Joe Shapira.

Who is Joe Shapira? Joe Shapira & Nickie Mali L...
Joe (Yoav) Shapira is a digital media entrepreneur who was born Israel, enlisted in the Israeli Air Force and immigrated to the US in 1979.

Shapira found his fame and fortune from an online dating site, Jdate.com, which focuses on matching Jewish. ImageImage
When Nickie carried the last name Shapira, her husband Joe Shapira had generously donated to the Reputation Party and its candidates,

including $43,100 to the McCain Victory California Committee in August 2008.

The evil network of Najib, Jho Low and China Government in one pic. The victims are us, who were looted blind. #1MDB
The characters described in the Criminal Indictment are very familiar. The emphasis in red is not in the original indictment by DOJ but it is very clear it refers to those people mentioned in red.
And DOJ gives clear indication that Jho Low lives in East Asia, where China and its extended territory Macau lies.

Ambrin Buang, who was supposed to retire in Feb 2015 was not retired. Gani Patail who was not supposed to retire got retired in July 2015. Tan Sri Hamid Bador got transferred to a desk job in PMO and was not given a desk. #1MDB
Constitutionally, Ambrin Buang supposed to report to Parliament. In practice, he reported to Ali Hamsa. That’s how they screw up a British inherited Check-and-Balance system.
Jan 2015: Ambrin Buang taiching to Deloitte despite the strong suspicion that 1MDB was into something very scandalous...

Don’t forget. The mainstream media thrusted us with nonsense and called it as news. If we were to tell the truth, they would catch us with fake news act designed to catch people who expose official lies. #1MDB
How could we forget the lies told by BN regarding 1MDB? Here Arul Kanda singing the same song. “No money lost by 1MDB.” freemalaysiatoday.com/category/natio…
“Last week, 1MDB said it could not claim the 104 million Swiss francs (RM430 million) that Swiss lawmakers were deliberating returning to the rightful owners simply because the money did not belong to it or even the government of Malaysia.” See the level of BN thieves?

DOJ seeks to seize $96M in assets to recover from #1MDB fraud. Fine artwork this time including paintings by Monet & Warhol, real estate in Paris, & bank accounts in Luxembourg & Switzerland. #ButNothingsHappening HT: @MuseScry
justice.gov/opa/pr/us-seek…
This brings the total up to $1.8 Billion of money stolen from #1MDB that DOJ has attempted to secure.
They don't identify the paintings, but it is probably in addition to the Van Gogh & 3 other Monet's seized in 2016.

Laundered money converted into real estate held in a shell company trust in the suspect's wife's name. Seems about right, wonder where that NYC luxury penthouse was located? Did he get a free Trump FBI financial colonoscopy with the condo?
#ButNothingsHappening
Looks like the property was in Walker Tower Condominiums. The owner was working for Abu Dhabi's sovereign oil wealth fund while his #1MDB money was used to purchase the real estate. malaysiakini.com/news/481235
Seems the purchase of the property was enough to get coverage in the @nytimes but not enough to get through the lawyers representing the shell company to know who the purchasers were!

Foreign governments paying for lawyers & PR firms to undermine the 1MDB case!

How about a Chinese state company, taking kickbacks from a Malaysian firm that was laundered to be used to oppose the investigation!
#ButNothingsHappening fcced.com/how-china-kuwa…
Jho Low was allowed to keep $15M of his pilfered money to pay his lawyers, but I bet his lawyers will be in trouble for allowing that deal when they were being paid through laundered bribe money from his co-conspirators.

I think that would be a no-no in any court!
Some of the money was laundered as invoices or payments paid through a "respectable middle eastern concern in which the politically connected individual held some shares" That was a Kuwaiti oligarch paying that money behind the company he owned shares in...

Arrest warrants issued for 2 Petrosaudi directors & Jho Low in #1MDB scandal.

Wonder when media is going to notice Jho Lho lead a group that is going to prison for illegal donations to Obama & Hillary?
Obaid & Mahony were also involvedin paying security & pr firms to run cover & harass journalists into not coving the stories. One of their contractors handles ‘financial security’ for the Vatican.

Obaid is the Kevin Bacon of global corruption, he’s within a few degrees of separation & connected to every Swampy player on the planet.

@OfficialIIUM, Maszlee sangat rajin menulis status-status & memberi ucapan-ucapan yang memperlekeh dan memperbodohkan pemimpin @barisanasional @NajibRazak
& @ahmadmaslan adalah merupakan mangsa kegemaran dia.
Maszlee Malik juga pernah ketawa menghina para penerima #BR1M ketika bual bicara bersama seorang Cina. Dia kata Melayu miskin dan tak boleh hidup tanpa BR1M.

Here’s another point from Nunes’ interview that I completely forgot about. H/t to @DawsonSField who never seems to forget anything.

Nunes mentioned there were Mifsud links to Saudi Arabia floating around, but then discounted those links.

However.......
Well, look at this. I had no idea that MCCabe also worked on the #1MDB scandal.
