Mark Scott wants to hide OneCoin evidence from grand jury
On February 8th Mark Scott was served a grand jury subpoena, requesting “a wide variety of documents” related to OneCoin.
Whatever evidence is in those documents, Mark Scott doesn’t want a grand jury seeing them.
We don’t know the specifics of what information the grand jury has requested from Scott, but we do know it was requested from Scott in his capacity as custodian of MSS International Consultants.
MSS International Consultants is one of the many shell companies OneCoin used to launder investor funds.
Through MSS International Consultants and other shell companies, the DOJ allege that Scott helped OneCoin launder over $400 million dollars.
On February 15th Scott’s attorney informed the DOJ that ‘Scott would assert his Fifth Amendment privilege in response to the subpoena‘.
Subsequently Scott’s attorney asked he be released from the subpoena.
The DOJ refused, on the grounds Scott doesn’t ‘have a Fifth Amendment privilege as custodian‘.
Scott has now turned to the District Court to resolve the matter.
If the District Court rules in his favor, Scott won’t have to provide the grand jury with the requested evidence – presumably on the grounds of self-incrimination.
Bear with me here, because things get a little complicated and I’m just thinking out loud… (updates below if anyone can point out something I’ve missed).
Mark Scott was indicted by a federal grand jury last August.
As I understand it he can’t be indicted again on the same charges, so that means this new grand jury pertains to someone else.
Supporting this is Scott being subpoenaed as a custodian, rather than as a defendant.
Apologies if my legal terminology is off, but what I’m getting at is Scott isn’t the subject of this unknown grand jury proceeding. He’s merely been compelled to provide evidence as custodian of MSS International Consultants.
So who is the subject of the current grand jury proceedings?
In Scott’s attorney’s filing, he states;
The subpoena calls for Mr. Scott to determine which if any documents “pertain to” the listed individuals and companies.
The documents referenced is the evidence Scott has been compelled to provide. The unknown individuals and companies referred to are related to OneCoin.
The obvious suspect is Sebastian Greenwood, who was arrested in Thailand and extradited to the US last November.
Greenwood’s status since extradition is unknown. But if it’s not him, then I don’t have any idea who the DOJ are currently going after.
Scott’s attorney’s filing is accompanied by a sealed copy of Scott’s subpoena. I can only assume the reason for the sealing is that the subpoena would give away who the current grand jury proceedings pertains to.
We’ll keep you updated on any developments but either way, looks like the prosecution of OneCoin executives has begun in earnest.
<3 finally! Irina Dilkinska, Onecoin "Head of Legal and Compliance" (ROFL) isn't as high profile a public name as Ruja and Sebastian. So, her potential capture would likely fly below the radar, if it were the case; but she was always one of the Top 5 in the company from a Corporate ladder perspective.
Add to that her being listed as a Director in at least 2 of the Ireland based shell companies in which Mark Scott was also listed in (but allegedly didn't voluntarily disclose), and I think she would be the next obvious choice, outside of Ruja, herself.
Could be Dilkinska. I’m still curious about the extradition black hole Greenwood fell into though.
The statement is, and I quote:
means there is more than 1. Thus Sebastian, Irina and Ruja are my choices.
Usually the rule of thumb in these type of cases is go after the body of the snake to see if you can flip them before going after the head of the snake.
If they can flip Sebastian, then Ruja is toast. He knows where all the dead bodies are buried (It’s a figure of speech folks).
Maybe Greenwood’s in Bang Kwang somewhere and the Thai prison authorities have forgotten which half-starved, filth-encrusted wreck is Greenwood.
I know he’s supposed to have been “extradited to the US” but the Bangkok Post article that was the original source of the story only said that he’d been arrested on an international arrest warrant, not that he’d been put on the plane.
Igor Krnic claims Irina Dilkinska has left OneCoin. Could be true.
After Ruja going awohl, Dilkinska must have felt it’s not very safe anymore, as Dilkinska is/was one of the known corporate names in the company.
If someone wants dig deeper, here is some info on Irina Andreeva Dilinska.
She was born 1981, her maiden name is Teneva.
Here are the Bulgarian companies she is associated with:
Info on her law credentials:
When investigating Irina’s companies from, I found that the LEONgrup7 in which she was the owner and manager, goes also by the name “BlockWave Tech Ltd”,
LEONgrup/Blockwave Tech was sold to One Network Services in 07.12.2018! You can even see the documents here, signed by manager of One Network Services, Kristyan Manolov:
Too bad they are in form that can’t be machine translated.
So a couple of months ago OneCoin bought a company from Irina, who is the co-director with Mark S Scott’s in FENERO TRADENEXT HOLDING LIMITED, even after the news that broke that feds are after Scott.
Asia Times – OneCoin ‘Ponzi’ at last heading to US courts
I private messaged your findings to Capital Weekly journalist Nickolay Stoyanov, just in case. 🙂
I am beginning to wonder if Frank Ricketts, Ed Ludbrook, Pierre Ahrens and Pablo Munoz are starting to sweat about now with this news Mark is being asked to turn over information on “others” being investigated by the Grand Jury.
I meant to also add Kari Wahlroos and Konstantin to my above list so mentioning them now.
Frank Ricketts is now in new schema ponzi (pyramid) CLUB HORIZON.
he is PDG AULIVES also… Very bad man !!!!
