The hunt began for over $7 Billion Dollars several years ago for the money stolen by Babak Zanjani, Reza Zarrab and Alireza Monfared all three from Iran who operated Middle East Islamic Bank registered in Malaysia and with corresponding banks in USA, Dominica, Malta and in Turkey. The scam was trading gold for oil and steal as much as possible from the Government of Iran before the detection was exposed. Alireza obtained a Diplomatic Passport from the Caribbean State of Dominica, which he thought would give him immunity from sexual assault in Malaysia and carrying money undetected anywhere in the world.
Babak Zanjani was arrested in Iran and awaiting execution unless he returned about $3 Billion Dollars and Reza Zarrab was under indictment in the USA trying to make a reasonable deal not to spend the rest of his life in a Federal Prison in the USA. Zarrab did offer to become an informant and assist in getting Mehmet Atilla the banker from Turkey entrapped who was convicted several weeks ago by the US Court.
To Anthony Astaphan a noted attorney in Dominica and to Roosevelt Skerrit who is the Prime Minister of Dominica Monfared was too good to be true until the Iran Secret Service kidnapped him because the Government of Dominica protected Monfared even when Interpol had a Red Alert. Dominica and Skerrit never conducted an Enhanced Due Diligence Intel and the background check on Monfared prior to making him a diplomat. Citizen By Investments countries are more interested in obtaining high fees for diplomat passports especially knowing the applicant has a shady past and is wanted, as we have exposed in the past two years in the East Caribbean States and posted on the Wanted SA web site.
Last week two more Iran Bankers associated with Monfared, Zanjani and Zarrab working in the United Kingdom and Iran were indicted and exposed to have also a passport for St. Kitts and from Dominica. The same bankers were involved in the assassination of a well noted and respected journalist whose automobile was blown up by hired killers and the conspiracy continues. Are the East Caribbean countries involved in all the crimes, because their passports were used to assist in the crimes? Several respected lawyers in the USA and Europe are considering in filling a "class action suit" against the countries and their leaders, but more so placing sanctions on these countries and holding them monetarily responsible for their actions by not allowing anyone with a passport whether purchased or obtained entry to the countries for the plaintiffs.
The crimes implemented by the East Caribbean Countries with their bogus passports without any form of thorough transparency must be exposed and the individuals punished according to the laws of the International Criminal Court.
