Drug Lord Robert Dawes appeals, again

Robert Dawes, 48, was sentenced by a French court to 22 years in jail for drug trafficking. He has appealed, again, this time accusing cops of using forged documents.

Known as "The Voice" the international drug baron was behind encrypted phones from a shuttered UK-registered company No1 Business Communication (No1BC).
He was miffed by the methods the anti-drugs task force used to seize 1.3 tonnes of cocaine at Charles de Gaulle Airport. There is no word on the outcome of his April 14 hearing. Robert Dawes was one of Europe’s biggest drug traffickers.
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. Dawes was arrested at his expansive villa in Spain and deported to France.
The cocaine had a street value of €240m.
From his base in Andalucía, Dawes imported huge 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 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.

India’s sand mafia


300 trucks a day take their fill of sand at a mine on the Sone River in Bihar state.
Sand is a lucrative commodity in India. It fuels a black market for the illegal strip-mining of waterways. Profits from India’s construction boom help keep the sand mining frontier lawless. Sand miners have killed those who oppose them. Our modern world is built on sand: concrete, paved roads, ceramics, metallurgy, petroleum fracking, even the glass on smart phones. River sand is best: desert sand is too rounded to serve as industrial binding agents, and marine sand is corrosive.
Sand has become so valuable that it is shipped huge distances. Australia sends sand to Arabia for land reclamation. China is a sand glutton. The world uses 50 billion tonnes of sand every year — more than any other natural resource, except water. India’s sand mafia is well established. It is said the police cut of royalties inflates the price of river sands from 15k rupees ($150) a truckload to between 40k and 80k rupees.
A scarcity of sand, and efforts to regulate sand mining, have spawned illegal trade and black markets. The demand for sand is so intense in some places that gangs have taken over the trade completely.

Ruben 'Menace' Reyes - Texas Mexican Mafia

Known as the 'Menace' Texas Mexican Mafia boss Ruben Reyes was a cold-blooded killer. If he had an order to kill you, you were dead. Reyes was a “Lieutenant of Lieutenants” in the Texas Mexican Mafia. Reyes admitted killing a fellow Texas Mexican Mafia member in front of his family. Reyes carried out the execution based on concerns he was talking to cops. His second sin was taking his wife with him on “dime” collection runs. The “dime” is a 10% tax imposed by the Texas Mexican Mafia on those who sell drugs in their territory. Reyes also admitted to killing three other Texas Mexican Mafia members. They were executed for their mishandling of $60k. Cop Julian Pesina was playing with his life by claiming membership in the Texas Mexican Mafia while dealing drugs. Reyes ordered his execution.
Reyes seemed to be a gangster's gangster, but for reasons unknown the gang hierarchy sanctioned his murder and he was shot in Nov 2014. Seeing no way out and with a fresh bullet wound he told police all he knew about the Texas Mexican Mafia’s rackets and dozens of murders. He admitted his involvement in 16 murders, but cops believe he is tied to at least 35. Ruben 'Menace' Reyes was sentenced to five consecutive life terms at the notorious ADX 'Supermax' facility in Florence, Colorado in 2016.

Turkish mobster Sedat Peker alleges 'Deep State' cocaine coverup

In May Panamanian cops seized 616kg of cocaine on its way from Ecuador to a port in Turkey’s southern Mersin provice.
The drugs were worth some $265m.The cocaine was hidden in cases of bananas. In June last year, Colombia seized 4.9 tons of cocaine, again destined for Turkey. No arrests were made in Turkey for either seizure. Turkish mafia boss Sedat Peker claims that a government loyalist clique (Pelicanists) and minister Mehmet Ağar were involved.
“The head of our deep state, Mr Mehmet Ağar, apparently doesn’t know where to send the narcotics police,” he said.

There were no arrests.
Turkey's trade minister, Mehmet Muş, recently announced that 1.1 tons of cocaine was seized at Mersin, dubbing it the largest seizure in Turkish history. As a result of international intelligence, the cocaine was discovered in a container of bananas aboard a ship arriving from Ecuador. The largest seizure was 800kg of cocaine in 2018 at Mersin, with no arrests. Sedat Peker
Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Berat Albayrak In 2019, Mersin police seized 615kg of cocaine at the port, with no arrests.

The group referred to as Pelicanists, named after the 1992 book the Pelican Brief, is a network focused mainly on slandering opponents of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. The group is believed to be led by Erdoğan’s son-in-law and former finance minister Berat Albayrak and his brother Serhat Albayrak, who heads Turkuvaz Media Group, one of the largest media conglomerates in the country.

Ukraine sanctions Dmytro Firtash

Ukraine announced sanctions against two businessmen with close ties to Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani. Dmytro Firtash and Pavel Fuks were named. Firtash received his sanctions for diverting titanium to the Russian military. Since posting a $174m bail bond in 2014, Dmytro Firtash has overseen his conglomerate Group DF in exile, living under house arrest in Vienna while he fights extradition to the US. The jewel of his business empire is a subsidiary called Ostchem, which has a monopoly on Ukraine's market for nitrogen fertilizer. Natural gas is the key input in the production of nitrogen fertilizer. Firtash’s push into fertilizers was built on corrupt deals with Putin associates.Pavel Fuks
Russian bank Gazprombank, tied to state-owned Russian gas giant Gazprom, extended Firtash a line of credit of $11.15b, which he used to buy fertilizer factories. Gazprom supplied gas at a huge discount. Ostchem companies made an operating profit of $3.7b in two years. At a huge cost to ordinary Russians and the Ukraine fertilizer market, Firtash's company made $2.2b in 2012 and 2013 alone.
Giuliani associates Victoria Toensing and Joe DiGenova represent Firtash. They met with ex-AG William Barr in July 2020 to argue against Firtash's charges. This at the height of Giuliani’s hunt for dirt on Biden. Despite being a conduit for millions, and accepting $500k, Giuliani claims to know nothing of Firtash.
“It’s none of my business.”
Trump's political dirt from Ukraine came from Dmytro Firtash. Dmytro Firtash was involved with disgraced Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. He is famous for supporting pro-Russia factions in Ukraine, military and political. Firtash’s close contact with top Russian mob boss Semion Mogilevich was exposed in 2010, when WikiLeaks posted a tranche of State Department cables. Firtash has been staying in Austria in relative freedom thanks to help from Russian billionaire Vasily Anisimov, who helped him post bond. Anisimov is on the Treasury Department’s 2018 “Putin List.”
Documents taken on TV and waved around by Giuliani came from Dmytro Firtash's legal team in Vienna. The debunked documents were presented as 'evidence' for his claims.

A-Hole Vancouver cop Neil Logan fired - no Thanks to VPD

Disgraced VPD Neil Logan has been dismissed. He was recently disciplined for assaulting a former girlfriend in 2017 and is facing multiple criminal charges. These include assault and uttering threats related to an incident in March 2014; theft, breach of trust and possession of a controlled substance over a May 2020 incident, and two drug trafficking charges. He was also accused of excessive use of force during a 'wellness check' in front of a stunned family in 2016. It was a whooping 8 day suspension for that crime.
A Vancouver police disciplinary proceeding substantiated a finding of misconduct and proposed Logan be suspended for 15 days without pay. A retired judge found Logan had shown an “enduring denial of his misconduct and a complete lack of remorse” and referred to the VPD's disciplinary process as 'the fox guarding the henhouse.'
