Attorneys Guided Madoff's Tax Havens

Madoff probe focuses on tax havens
The Observer by James Doran in New York - December 28, 2008 (United Kingdom)

The hunt for funds allegedly cheated out of investors by Bernard Madoff, who faces fraud charges in New York, has turned to offshore tax havens where investigators believe he may have salted away hundreds of millions of dollars. Stephen Harbeck, chief executive of America's Securities Investor Protection Corporation (Sipc) and official receiver of Madoff's now defunct brokerage business, said the hunt for funds was likely to spread all over the world. "We will trace funds wherever the trail goes," he said on the steps of the US Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York.

Sources close to the investigation said forensic accountants examining Madoff's books believed he had regularly sent large sums of money to offshore accounts in the Caribbean and Europe. "There are accounts at New York Mellon Bank that we have been looking at that appear to have sent and received money from offshore locations," a senior source said. Tracking down the money investors entrusted to Madoff is likely to be one of the longest and most complicated financial investigations on record. Harbeck said investigators were dealing with a "highly complex hybrid fraud", adding each individual investment account operated by Madoff could be its own self-contained fraud. "But it is still too early to say with any certainty what was going on inside Madoff's business." The scandal took a chilling turn last week when Rene-Thierry Magon de la Villehuchet, the co-founder of a firm that lost millions investing with Madoff, was found dead in his New York apartment. Access International Advisors - Magon de La Villehuchet's firm - is understood to have lost $1.5bn in the Madoff affair.

On the same day a New York judge ruled that Madoff's investors would receive no more than $100,000 in cash compensation, no matter how much they lost. The ruling was included in a series of court orders made on 23 December by US bankruptcy judge Burton Lifland. For the biggest losers in the Madoff scandal, the compensation is a drop in the ocean. Fairfield Greenwich, the investment firm run by Madoff chum Walter Noel, lost $7.5bn in the fraud while womenswear magnate and Madoff mentor Carl Shapiro lost $545m of his personal fortune. Claims for compensation will be restricted to those investors who can prove they sent money to Madoff in the 12 months prior to his arrest on 11 December. Judge Lifland invited Madoff investors to attend a meeting at the US Bankruptcy Court on 18 February.

Madof needed protection from federal oversight. Large off shore transactions mean taxes avoided and where was the bank reporting of such large cash transactions? Who was protecting Madof? Bush, possibly? Who was receiving money from Madof for his own campaigns and his take back the Senate campaigns, Schumer? Why no investigation of such transactions? Madof had high level protection.

than three years, or both.
I hereby charge you and Ms. Tellem with MISPRISION OF FELONY and

Can anyone explain why this guy is out on bail?

How and why did the judge reduce the bail requirements?

Why aren't the 'investors' up in arms that he is living off their dime?

How could the judge make any rulings concerning the money before there has been any sort of investigation into what this scam was all about?

I believe Schumer is a male and so he's not a madam; just a pimp protecting the whore, Madof. This pimp protected his whore and was rewarded.

If Maddog fleeced anyone where the death penalty is in affect in this country...I say it is warranted!
I also believe that his wife and all family members supporting him now should be included, since they must have had knowledge of his massive fortune and the means he used to obtain it, or they would be too outraged now, to support this loser.
The real question is...why isn't the biggest shister in American history in jail.....when those that have stolen less than a HUNDRED DOLLARS, lanquish in the filth of NY state or county prisons for months!?
This is why people must continue to expose all the many non-judicial acts the state and federal judicial systems employ against the unaware taxpayer.
What is the name of the judge that allowed this scumhead to be released on some signature bail that was less than 50 billion dollars?
We are not from NYC and this information is not always reported in the areas where this pariah was not invested.
Many Americans can still be appalled that this went on and appears to be protected by influential individuals.
Exposure of the scum involved is desired, even by those outside of the groups he targeted using ethnic trust, because in the end this will affect all of us...in some severely negative and detrimental way.

MISPRISION OF FELONY:

I have asked the U.S.Attorney in the Southern District of Florida to investigate that same crime of a Suffolk County Court Judge.

After shuffling it off, I wrote back to the US attorney and they said they will send it on to the FBI for investigation. I doubt if anything will come of it, but at least I tried. You never know what can happen when you file a case that appears to have merit.

The basis for my complaint is this: The judge sentenced a witness, a known felon, and a felon that was proven to have lied in his court - see post under thread: Ethics Attorney disbarred......comment #15)to 5 years probation for his 'truthful testimony' I informed the judge before sentencing this nefarious scoundrel that the witness had been actively engaged in a widespread mortgage fraud in Boca Raton, FL. That letter of advisement was about 25 pages long and with examples of what I believed to be mortgage and bank fraud. The very idea that the witness pled out to 38 violent felonies seemed not to pique the interest of the judge that such a person could be selling mortgages, without a license and with a felony conviction. The information I gave him should have at least sparked an inquiry by the Judge and the DA. It appears that the Judge and the DA never bothered to advise the Florida authorities that this miscreant they sent to them to administer his suffolk probation that he may be involved in serious crimes in their state, and charges that are usually charged on a federal level.

That felon has been now discharged from his probation in Florida, and sent back to Suffolk County with a don't let the door hit you in the ass fella.

that, IMHO, is Misprision of Felony. A lawful authority had become aware of such a crime, or at least had cause to investigate it for accuracy, and they failed to do so. The good people were made to suffer for their corruptive practices.

In addition, I filed charges against the DA for having information that his two 'truthful' witnesses did an arson for hire in another county, and the DA withheld that information from the other county in furtherence of a plot to convict an innocent man. The DA had signed and sealed confessions, which I produced for the SIC, and the DA conferred immunity for those crimes in his county for a crime committed in another county. He did so after having this information for more than 18 months. It was only after I uncovered this travesty of justice and reported it to the Yonkers, NY PD and the Westchester DA was this matter investigated by the SIC, an investigation that I requested AG Cuomo to conduct.

The SIC ****canned it on July 2 2008, and said so in a letter they sent to me explaining their reasons. They also sent that same letter to DA Spota and he promptly posted it on his website that he was investigated by the SIC and was found of no wrongdoing by the SIC. That letter that he posted was the letter sent to me, and it had my name, and more importantly, my address.

The CJC was equally non responsive to the complaint of three instances of misconduct I said the trial judge committed in the underlying case. One of those charges was a very serious one. It concerned itself with altering the trial transcript of a very embarassing situation to the judge. The judge explicity warned the DA that he would call a mistrial if he ventured into a forbidden area, and the ADA responded that he understood and would do it anyway - and he did just that only moments later. The judge didn't call the mistrial. That portion of that exchange was given to the defense in the daily sheets, but somehow disappeared from the official transcripts offered to the appellate court on appeal. The CJC never bothered to ask if I had any proof of that accusation. They just ignored this very serious charge I made against the judge.

the entire criminal justice system is now at risk and his a Clear and Present Danger to democracy in this nation.
