Kuwait linked OneCoin & Ruja Ignatova to “terrorist groups”
A report from Kuwait’s Ministry of Interior alleges ties between OneCoin, Ruja Ignatova and “terrorist groups”.
The leaked 2015 report, put together by the MOI’s Criminal Investigation General Department and marked “extremely confidential”, identifies Ignatova as
originally Russian, born in 1980 and holding several passports from several European countries.
The report goes on to detail Ignatova’s recent movements and activity in the UAE.
(Ignatova) entered the United Arab Emirates some time ago using the diplomatic passport through Dubai International Airport by a private plane and in possession of a large sum of money.
Ignatova obtained diplomatic documents through iCAFE, a New York non-profit run by Sheikh Saoud bin Sultan Al Qassimi.
(Ignatova) purchased a license for a bank in the UAE with an amount of approximately 16 million US dollars, to be used in the issuance of bonds and banking transactions and to facilitate the movement of funds in her possession.
We confirm that the information currently available to us through confidential sources indicates that the aforementioned may be an element in an international organization for money laundering of terrorist groups.
Specific countries Kuwaiti authorities link Ruja Ignatova’s banking transactions to include terrorist organizations in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen.
Kuwaiti authorities claimed to be in possession of several checks issued by Ignatova to undisclosed recipients.
Citing issues with “control and oversight by Emirati authorities regarding the movement of funds”, the CIGD claimed Ignatova
decided to start trying to transfer her illegal activity to the State of Kuwait and open companies and accounts that enable her to remit funds and transfer them back to other destinations.
We believe that these illegal operations are being run by a country with strong and active intelligence activities in support of terrorist groups.
The report was hand-delivered by the CIGD to the Chief of Dubai Police by two Kuwaiti lieutenant colonels.
There is talk of “coordination” between Kuwait and the UAE “in this regard”, however nothing seems to have come of it.
Whether Ruja Ignatova’s ties to Sheikh Saoud, part of a ruling family who run the United Arab Bank, was behind authorities in the UAE doing nothing is unclear.
Thus far Sheikh Saoud and ICAFE have faced no consequences for aiding and abetting Ignatova and OneCoin.
The leaked Kuwaiti report has been made available by attorney John Levy.
Levy is currently engaged in litigation against OneCoin through the British Indian Ocean Territory Supreme Court.
Writes Levi in a May 17th update;
As to the Cryptoqueen’s whereabouts Dr. Levy explains: “She is under possible protection of a state sponsor of terror and also has been found not to have committed any crime in Dubai despite volumes of evidence of money laundering. Ignatova is almost certainly in the UAE possibly in one of the emirates controlled by the Al Qassimi royal family.
Based on Ignatova’s ties to the Al Qassimi family, I’m inclined to agree but I haven’t ruled out Russia yet.
Frank Schneider’s stonks keep going up. He has to be the key to all of this, or at the very least knows who is.
Well …good times! Right!?!?
I mean …. not sure some of us plebs would’ve been so vocal about Onecoin misdoings should we’ve known a multi 10X freaking BILLIONAIRE was having her fun playing in the same sandbox with literally some of the most affluent terrorist organizations on the planet, apparently :/ …errrmmm.
Former *U-Fun*/ Onecoin promoter, Joby Boughey, once taunted (us) that (we “haters”) were nothing more than flies on the wall, by comparison and observance to the power of “ONE” and its control of World Dominance and influence in the market, due to its massive Power and Network.
I wonder if that petty enabling scammer and serial criminal ever knew how close he was to the now apparent truth!?!?!
I wonder how Ken Labine,who’s otherwise seemingly fallen off the face of the planet (at least digitally speaking), could’ve ever imagined the magnitude of international corruption and crime complicency, which he helped perpetuate with his almost daily excuses, including up to four-and-a-half-hour-long “Explainer videos” exonerating Onecoin of being involved in any “illegal activity” (and that all the international warnings and government prohibitions were simply misunderstandings brought in by “the haters” trying to attack the *philanthropic work* of the “200+ IQ” #KleptoQueen)?
” If anyone is stupid enough to trust Google over me, then you’re too stupid to be on my Team!” (Does anyone remember or can reference/ quote exactly what he stated in that video recording of him preaching to the lemmings at the U.K. “leadership event” which we later “memed”?
HERE’S his dickhead (quite literally looking) buddy, *Joby*, pretending to illustrate exactly “how #FAKE Onecoin transactions work”, by demonstrating the use of a REAL blockchain transaction (wallet-to-wallet) over the bitcoin network:
Biggest white froude in the world only dream high promise big conversation trust is sell after 6 years no and never trust onecoin.
big froud high chitting nice fullish dealshaker all items is very big price and backwards areas of Shop lands and house and no need no use no branded items always sell.
indian all leaders is stop and close onecoin work and no reply no work no answer no way no trust no value no prestige no image no honestly no guide only make money and fullish for members.
Wow, another incredible plot twist!
Let’s spare a thought for OneCoin CEO Pierre Arens, who began his 2017 Japan event presentation by having a minute of silence for victims of terrorist attacks:
Perhaps this gesture was born out of his guilty conscience. Or not, because he offers OneCoin as a solution to prevent terrorist financing.
He sold her not just any bank but the Emirates Investment Malaysian Bank: jlevy.co/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/Bank-Sale.pdf
Which was used in this Ponzi:
I’ve been trying to digest this bombshell.
The Kuwaiti police document itself is almost certainly real, backed by surrounding evidence like the diplomatic credentials and the bank license sale document, and it was mentioned in the Mashreq STR as one of the reasons for the freezing OneCoin bank accounts.
Which make the allegations very serious and believable. But the claims are so wild, that some additional independent corroboration would be needed in order to dispel any doubts (the unknown sub-source of the Kuwaiti official might unreliable, etc.).
Anyway, for fun and sport, here is my grand speculation trying to make sense what going on, assuming that the allegations about Ruja’s role in terrorist financing are true. Don’t take this too seriously. 😉
What caught my eye was this remark from police report:
This suggests to me that Ruja is a pawn in the dealings between organized crime and (state sponsored) terrorism.
Coming from Saudi-ally Kuwaiti authorities, this could refer to Iran, because it surely has “strong and active intelligence services” working in the region — which is less true for any Arab state.
Mention of “terrorist groups in Yemen” could mean the Iran-supported Houthi rebels. The Afgan and Pakistani terrorist groups are harder to explain by Iran connection.
Although there are some allegations that Iran has supported Sunni terrorist groups like Taleban to harm US troops, the Kuwaiti authorities may be referring to Iran recruiting Shia fighters from Afganistan and Pakistan to serve as Bashar al-Assad’s cannon fodder in Syria (apnews.com/4731b95dae684f77b27d83c26e72a276).
Given that one of the major background figures of OneCoin — its “head of security” according to DoJ — and Ruja’s close affiliates is Bulgarian mafia boss Hristoforos Nicos Amanatidis (aka Taki) known for cocaine trafficking, this might point to his VIS-2 group having some partnership with Lebanese Iran-backed Hezbollah, who are known to be also active in cocaine smuggling in funding their operations.
Court transcript suggest Ruja tried to arrange massive oil (smuggling?) deals in Venezuela (–> https://behindmlm.com/companies/onecoin/onecoin-lawyers-bullied-uk-authorities-into-cowardice/#comment-427394).
Venezela is also alleged to be a key link for Iranian/Hezbollah’s crime empire in pursuit fund it operations (–> atlanticcouncil.org/in-depth-research-reports/issue-brief/the-maduro-hezbollah-nexus-how-iran-backed-networks-prop-up-the-venezuelan-regime/)
(One of Ruja’s key money launderers was a guy called Najib Kassis, and the name suggest Lebanese origin, I think…)
The intelligence services angle might be also where Frank Schneider comes in.
Frank surely knew lots of dodgy people from MENA. Hell, owner of Frank’s firm “Sandstone SRL” is Iraqi billionaire Nadhmi Auchi, of Assyrian background, who is described in 2004 secret Pentagon report as follows:
So, as veterans in big-time shady schemes and persons posessing great connections and know-how in “dark arts”, not impossible to imagine that Frank and Nahdmi would have entagled themselves –and Ruja — afain in some very questionable “endeovors”…
I’m glad you’re keeping track of things.
Ruja’s extended criminal activities are giving me a headache. This is getting too complicated.
The state sponsors of terror would be either Syria or Iran.
Crypto transactions or even pseudo crypto like OneCoin are good fronts for money laundering the proceeds of cartels and sanctioned entities.
Dubai investigated 5 years and had 14 volumes of evidence. Ruja, Greenwood, Cully, Kauser, and the German attorney all refused to testify but suffered no consequences.
Then Dubai finds in June 2020 no crimes were committed and the blocked funds are unblocked and that Greenwood, Ignaatova, Madani, and Sheikh are free to fight over hundreds of millions and likely more in real estate.
By June 2020, no one would have exhonerated Ignatova and Greenwood save a commission consisting of the Dubai Public Prosecutor, Dubai Police and UAE Central Bank.
They must really like OneCoin or bigger players are involved.
My bet is on “bigger players” are involved. This level of corruption has to be sanctioned at the very top.
I have said all along that the major players in OneCoin were behind the scenes and not known to the general population. Frank Schneider was one of the people I designated as more important than Ruja.
You also have to look at the attorneys involved with OneCoin, both those in the home office and in other countries doing Ruja’s bidding.
If Frank spills the beans, so to speak, he is going to need a lot of protection or he is a dead man, and he knows it; as well as the authorities.
I can see this being movie sequels like the Mission Impossible series, Godfather series, Harry Potter, you get the drift.
It will be interesting to see if the movie studios do decide to make this an ongoing series due to more and more information coming out now; and will come out in the future. Just my 2 cents worth.
I also remember when the Gerlach Report came out with a story about Ruja being tied to the Mafia and OC immediately called it a rag and an untrue story put out by haters.
Due to other things they reported like her arrest in Germany that didn’t happen, it tainted their veracity. Ironically they got it right on Ruja and the Mafia.
Now the question is how long before Veska does a runner and disappears?
Which again begs the question of what was the London Office “RavenR” doing in all of this? How was it funded?
How many so-called investment “professionals” worked there and what did it do that so important that it had to be separate from “corporate” in Sofia or Dubai?
Was Gary Gilford connected to Mark Scott? Did Gilford or Scott know about terror links? What did or does Dilskinsky know and where is she?
Plain and simple. Money Laundering.
