Chérif Chekatt: ‘gangster-jihadist’

French police call them “gangster-jihadists” – young men, often from poor immigrant backgrounds, who start with petty crime, drug dealing and robbery and graduate to terrorism. The profile of Strasbourg attacker Chérif Chekatt is familiar in France. Chekatt was born in Strasbourg in 1989, into a Moroccan family.

He first fell into into petty crime, then gangster circles. He moved into Islamic extremism during a spell in prison between 2013 and 2015.
Like many youths growing up in outer-city housing projects in France, Chekatt was poor and unemployed.
“He seemed normal. Just a normal guy.”Saïd and Chérif Kouachi, responsible for the attacks on the newspaper Charlie Hebdo in 2015 when 12 people were killed, came from suburban housing projects. Residents in the housing block at Les Poteries where Chekatt lived were stunned – as were neighbours of all of the previous terror suspects.

Former Credit Suisse bankers charged in $2 billion loan fraud

At least $200 million of the proceeds were used as bribes and kickbacks.Three former Credit Suisse bankers have been charged by the United States over their role in a fraudulent loan scheme that prosecutors allege included at least $200 million in bribes and kickbacks. Andrew Pearse, Surjan Singh and Detelina Subeva have been indicted in New York for helping to arrange over $2 billion in loans that were guaranteed by the government of Mozambique.

The arrests came five days after former Mozambique Finance Minister Manuel Chang was arrested in South Africa as part of the same criminal case. A fifth man, Jean Boustani, was arrested at New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport as he tried to flee.

The state-owned companies missed more than $700m in loan payments after defaulting in 2016 and 2017. In a statement, Credit Suisse made clear that no action had been taken against the bank itself.

Deliveryman beaten after parking in front of NY Hells Angels clubhouse

A deliveryman was beaten by 3 men when he parked his car in front of motorcycles outside the Hells Angels’ East Village clubhouse. The victim suffered minor facial injuries but did not need to be taken to the hospital. Hells Angels zealously protect the parking spaces outside their clubhouse. In December 2016, a prospective Hells Angels member shot a man in the gut after he moved an orange traffic cone that was holding a parking spot outside the clubhouse. The assault case against Anthony Iovenitti, 52, was dismissed after he died of an aneurysm in 2017.

Preveceutical (PREV.c) files civil suit against BridgeMark

Preveceutical Medical Inc. filed a notice of civil claim against Aly Babu Mawji, Justin Liu, BridgeMark Financial Corp., Rockshore Advisors Ltd. (Cam Paddock Enterprises Inc.), Detona Capital Corp., Escher Invest SA, Essos Corporate Services Inc., Jarman Capital Inc., JCN Capital Corp., Kendl Capital Ltd., Lukor Capital, Northwest Marketing and Management Inc., Sway Capital Corp. and Tryton Financial Corp.

Preveceutical Medical made claims against the BridgeMark group for fraudulent misrepresentation, breach of contract, conspiracy, unjust enrichment and breach of duty of honest performance in connection with services that the BridgeMark group has failed to provide.
The relief sought by Preveceutical includes: (i) rescission of the consulting agreements and the subscription agreements; (ii) all necessary actions to effect such recession, including an order that the relevant members of the BridgeMark group return the securities issued to them by Preveceutical Medical under the subscription agreements and refund the consulting fees paid to them by Preveceutical Medical under the consulting agreements.
Upshot? Not much to see here. It will very likely take years to obtain judgement and by then for certain nothing will be left. All the crooks will be needing to file lawsuits moving forward. This protects their own grossly dirty anuses. What IS interesting is if Provincial civil forfeiture offices get involved ... which some are suggesting is already happening. Jackson's $ 16m home/palace is ripe for the plucking.

Florida Keys fisherman’s cocaine catch worth $500,000

A fisherman spotted 25 plastic-wrapped packages which turned out to be high purity cocaine. DEA Miami office said in 2017 that pure cocaine goes for $26,000 to $28,000 per kilogram. Using that price range and the weight range given, the bales are worth $473,000 to $761,600, wholesale.
In February a 32-year-old Florida Panhandle fisherman was sentenced to 6 years in prison after finding a bale of cocaine in the Gulf of Mexico and setting up a distribution network to sell the drugs.

Thomas Zachary Breeding is warning others not to do what he did.

El Chapo Trial - Juan Carlos Ramirez Abadia

Among those who have testified against Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, the face of former Colombian drug lord Juan Carlos Ramirez Abadia stands out. Ramirez, known as "Chupeta," or lollipop, is notorious for having multiple plastic surgeries to alter his face to evade authorities.

The pair worked together for nearly 18 years. Ramirez's associates would grow and process cocaine and fly it to Mexico. Then, Guzman's cartel smuggled the drugs into the US.
Ramirez believes his North Valley Cartel moved some 400,000 kilos of cocaine into the US.
It could take other traffickers a month or more to move drugs from Mexico into the US -- the first shipment El Chapo trafficked for him took less than a week.

For this El Chapo's cut was 40% of the shipment's value, up from the usual 37%. Corruption in Ramirez's cartel, like Guzman's, involved murder. Ramirez admitted to ordering the killing of about 150 people.

Abattis Bioceuticals Corp. - Scott Jason Jarman

"Due to an oversight, the company did not timely disseminate a news release or file a Form 9 with the Canadian Securities Exchange respecting the closing. The company confirms that it has now filed the required Form 9 and apologizes to its shareholders for the delay in informing them of the closing."
Named and disgraced securities mutt Mr. Scott Jason Jarman CONTINUES to abuse the 'consultant exemption.'

"Abattis has recently unveiled its new marketing and branding materials, developed in conjunction with media company Canada One Communications."

Robert Abenante
And that's the level of respect of open career securities criminals. The BCSC is a global joke and the main reason career criminal scum come to Vancouver to globally and gleefully rip stupid folks off. A massive bust and it slows these types down not at all. Amazing.

Man linked to Hells Angels shot dead in Saint-Leonard - Update

David Lefebvre, Sébastien Beauchamps Sébastien Beauchamps, 44, was considered a close associate of David Lefebvre, one of Montreal's most influential bikers. The Mascouche man was intimate enough to accompany him to a boxing gala in Quebec City in July 2016, and to console him after the death of HA Kenny Bédard. Lefebvre quickly rose after SharQc and is considered the godfather of the violent Minotaurs, a puppet club. This relationship with the upper echelons has led several sources to say that the murder of Sébastien Beauchamps was "authorized in high places".
44-year-old Sebastien Beauchamps has died after a shooting in broad daylight in Saint-Leonard. He has ties to the Hells Angels. His body was found next to a Jeep Cherokee at an Ultramar gas station. He had been shot multiple times.

Cocaine Kingpin Robert Dawes guilty - 22 years

Robert Dawes was given 22 years for a record cocaine bust. He was one of Europe’s biggest drug traffickers. Convicted in Paris, he was caught importing 1.3 tonnes of cocaine into France. Robert Dawes was arrested two years after the drugs were discovered inside 30 unregistered suitcases, transported on an Air France plane from Caracas to Charles de Gaulle airport. The cocaine had a street value of €240m.
Dawes was arrested at his expansive villa in Spain and deported to France. From his base in Andalucía, Dawes imported vast quantities of cocaine. Dawes mainly used shipping containers to move drugs, but also leisure boats and commercial flights such as the Air France flight.

The discovery of the Air France shipment caused a major stir in Venezuela, where the interior minister admitted the suitcases had gone through security scanners that had clearly shown the presence of drugs. Venezuelan police arrested 25 people, including members of the military and an Air France manager.
Dawes’ criminal empire is said to have stretched from Portugal, France and Belgium to Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, Pakistan, Venezuela and Mexico.

Dawes met regularly with representatives of South American cartels at hotels in Madrid. He also dealt with ‘Ndrangheta mafia.

His network spanned the globe, enabling him to orchestrate the movements of huge amounts of drugs and money.
The son of criminal, he got his first conviction in 1983, aged 11, and went on to collect 16 more, for robbery, drugs, and assault. Fearing arrest, Dawes fled to Spain in 2001 and built a massive drug empire.

He could be free in 12 years, with much of his loot intact.

TV Finance "Guru" charged in $1.2b Ponzi Scheme

Jordan E. Goodman marketed himself as "America's Money Answers Man." He appeared regularly on Fox News, CNN, CNBC, CBS, and ABC. The SEC announced fraud charges against Goodman in Miami. The SEC says that from 2014 to 2017, Goodman told the public to invest in California real-estate companies called the Woodbridge Group, "a massive Ponzi scheme".
In November, the SEC whacked the CEO of Woodbridge, Robert Shapiro, with a $120 million fine.
Goodman made a substantial sum by telling people to send money to what the government says was a massive scam. In 2014 he started telling people to dump money into Woodbridge. He touted Woodbridge's investments as "safe and secure." or "super safe." He even told people to dump their retirement accounts into Woodbridge.

Goodman helped Woodbridge raise $147 million from 1,200 investors in 28 states. In return Goodman earned over $2.3 million in kickbacks.
