There's lot's of things that just don't add up in the #DerbyCounty story (not just the balance sheet)!

#DCFC

Fortunes squandered
Rules bent/broken
Offshore
Financial Engineering
Fronts
Fraudsters

It's not the first time the poor DCFC fanbase have been exposed to these c*nts
I was reminded of this incredible story from the mid 2000's that had passed me by at the time... but could be instructive of things to come.

#DCFC #QPR
- MD Nissan
- Fraud/Financial Engineering
- Offshore
- Loans/Mortgages on the stadium
- Dodgy solicitors & administrators

⚽️💸
The story about #MichaelHunt the biggest (uncovered) theft in the UK from #Nissan

Money Laundering through Swiss Trusts & banked in #Panama then loaned back to #QPR and #DCFC is the stuff of Spy movies!

@david_conn Nissan don't come out of this well - Anyway, moving on...💸⚽️

#OperationTrojanShield

Wow! Big news!!

With this operation, #Encrochat #Sky #MPC & other encrypted networks being infiltrated, does this mean the end of #Drugs #Corruption #OrganisedCrime ?🤔

Hmmm!

It's a brilliant operation BUT may have unintended consequences

A #Thread
I got sucked into doing some amateur study of the economy of drug trafficking because of brilliant TV shows.

When you study the numbers, understand the geo-politics, social, criminal & financial elements behind the global industry... you realise just how powerful it really is!🎬
If you trace the industry from;
- Areas of production
- Transit routes
- End Markets

Then look at the money flows;
-Peso exchange
-Hawala networks
-Offshore
-Trade based money laundering
etc

Then the operational groups🧐

It's mind blowing in scale & influence @InSightCrime 🤯

This is the biggest story in World #Sport at the moment

The way the narrative is starting to play out is so reminiscent of the #Trump election - It's a scary template!

Regulated media V's Unregulated Media competing to tell the story 🤯#Boxing #Tribal

For any #boxing / #sport fan with no previous knowledge of these characters, we should be sceptical of simplistic caricatures that are served up by Online Fans OR stenographers masquerading as journalists!

There's a lot of sh*t out there! 🤳💻

Research & Critical thinking! 🤔
If we accept the @panorama programme #boxingandthemob then we have a situation whereby #OrganisedCrime has not only infiltrated BUT is dominating a Global/Professional Sport!

If that's the case, what's to stop these forces taking over #Football OR other major Sport next?

In the run up to the #USPresidentialElections2020 when the characters & stories seem more mind-boggling than ever, it can be difficult to discern...
'How the fuck did the world end up here'?

Some great answers/insight here #Kleptopia 👏📕

Uncivil & Outright Criminal Behaviour seems to have been normalised throughout societies everywhere;

- Politics
- Crony Capitalism
- Social Media
- Reality TV
... Even Sport 🧐

I've tried to get my head around it with the help of some good books & following smart journo's Image

To understand the rise of;
-Strongman leaders
-Autocrats
-Dictators
-Kleptocrats
-Crooks
-Spooks
-Shady financiers
-Conmen

& other maniacal actors worldwide, there's some good reading in the pics below & above👀

Some funny goings on in #Liverpool under the stewardship of #JoeAnderson 👀

My current viewpoint might be influenced by some of the TV shows I watched during lockdown #Subura #Gomorrah #GangsOfLondon #LineOfDuty

But, it has a whiff of a Mafia fiefdom🤯

kilfoyleonpolitics.wordpress.com/2020/09/10/a-t…
- Merseyside Police investigating City Council
- Lancashire Police - #OperationSheridan
- Serious Fraud Office, North West Serious Crimes Unit & GMP investigating property scams
- Council finances not being signed off by an auditor for the last 5 years

Something smells fishy🐟👀
Now, I realise it sounds bonkers to link TV shows about the Italian Mafia and how they infiltrate local councils and municipalities - I mean, that wouldn't happen in Lancashire or Merseyside... would it!?

Well, ye. It would...

Have a look 👀

June 2016, we were asked to open an investigation into global #dogfighting - it was time the horror was addressed. The aim was to reach a large international audience to explain what this barbarity was really about. This feed will explain what happened next... 🕵🏼‍♂️
We were already working on a separate project in Greece 🇬🇷 - but we had to find a new start point in the UK for this investigation. We trawled through all the existing information and tips for the best lead. Finding this is always CRITICAL to a successful investigation.
We identified a man who had strong links to Birmingham but also contacts within Eastern Europe, we know as a hot-bed for top level #dogfighting - the information had come from a tip-off and our experience and senses made us feel this was a great lead. The research began 💻

Yesterday, @officialEFCC charged 2 staff of @NigBarAssoc with 14 counts of digital fraud in connection with rigging #NBADecides2018, which produced Mr. Paul Usoro as the President of the Association.

His tenure ends next month. It's a long story... THREAD
punchng.com/efcc-to-arraig…
Leadership elections in @NigBarAssoc were always scandalous. Until 2016, they elections were through delegates.

The delegates began to make money through the process & it became a big deal to be selected as one. Once you were one, you became rich

premiumtimesng.com/opinion/column…
By 2014, the process had become too expensive. In #NBADecides2014, "money spoke very loudly. By some estimates, @NigBarAssoc's 2014 elections were the 1st in which the campaign expenditure easily crossed the One billion Naira mark."

1) #NicolasSarkozy was #France’s president 2007-2012, was arrested & is being questioned about his illegally financed campaign by #Gaddafi in #Libya, some backstory.

How did Sarkozy go from accepting #illegal cash to advocating overthrow?

#QAnon #Corruption @POTUS #FRA #LeMonde
2) A total of $50m was funneled. And it wasn't done via wire transfer. Franco-Lebanese businessman Ziad Takkiedine claims he carried suitcases full of cash in 2006 and 2007.

$50m is double the legal campaign limit in France.

3) This story is not new. Here is an article from it back in 2014.

#Sarkozy is a corrupt #swamp rat. He's been dogged by corruption claims forever. A simple search will show a laundry list.
