US investigation into Mirror Trading International confirmed
Mirror Trading International’s liquidators have confirmed the existence of a US investigation into Mirror Trading International.
The news follows months of inaction by South African authorities.
Heading up the US investigation are the FBI. US authorities purportedly began to look into MTI after being contacted by US victims.
As reported by Bloomberg, quoting an email statement;
The firm’s liquidators “had meetings with international law enforcement agencies like the Federal Bureau of Investigation, after being approached by them,” the grouping, made up of five trustees, said in an emailed statement on Tuesday.
“The FBI is joining forces with the liquidators of Mirror Trading International in the interest of several U.S. and local investors.”
It is the policy of US authorities to neither confirm or deny the existence of active investigations.
This unfortunately means that, until they’re ready to pull the trigger (or we get more leaks out of South Africa), we won’t know the extent of the FBI’s investigation.
Imagine being so garbage at your job that the FBI has to come into your country and do it for you. And not only that, they bypass you and go straight to the civil proceedings because you’re just that useless.
The least the Hawks and whoever else has been stalling could do is just get out of the way at this point.
Might be some time off but if the DOJ files charges let’s get some extraditions going.
Cheri Marks throwing tantrums in a US courtroom would be beyond epic.
