Recognizing a "billion-dollar opportunity", in early 2009 a bunch of Texas legal professionals hatched the most diabolical con jobs in U.S. historical past. utilising a "legal procedure" provided to them via financially-desperate monetary advisors, this ancient 'grand robbery' all started with the U.S. Marshal's dramatic seizure of the Stanford monetary staff workplaces in Houston, Texas.
The 'breaking information' tale broadcast live to tell the tale CNN...billionaire financier Robert Allen Stanford, accused of operating an enormous fraud from his offshore, Stanford foreign financial institution, and during his U. S. dependent broker-dealer, Stanford workforce corporation - a multi-billion greenback "Ponzi scheme".
It used to be all a Texas-sized lie.
With real trial transcripts and different documentation, Brutal Takeover exposes the genuine Stanford tale - how with out a unmarried shopper loss or grievance, and with none valid authority, attorneys on the U.S. Securities and alternate fee and the U.S. division of Justice joined forces to fabricate and prosecute an imaginary case of "securities fraud". A headline-grabbing case that might serve to salvage the Madoff-damaged careers on the SEC, permit enormous quantities of Texas attorneys in deepest perform to siphon billions from the Stanford resources, be supported via the admittedly "selective and incomplete" findings and "Declarations" of a unmarried accountant with an unlicensed CPA enterprise, and...immediately increase an no doubt corrupt DOJ prosecutor (Gregg Costa) to a pass judgement on within the 5th Circuit court docket of Appeals.
On March 6, 2012, after an severe propagandizing crusade vilifying him as a "Ponzi schemer", a failed try on his lifestyles, and maybe the main outrageously corrupt trial in smooth U.S. heritage, Robert Allen Stanford was once convicted of this totally synthetic fraud and sentenced via a federal pass judgement on to a dazzling a hundred and ten years in felony. just like the jurors who sat via his trial and have been (strategically) swayed through the pictures of his yacht, deepest planes and sprawling Caribbean property, for the prior seven years Stanford's U.S. and foreign consumers had believed strongly within the government's allegations opposed to him. yet now not anymore.
Written contained in the greatest protection legal the place Stanford has been held considering the fact that his conviction, Brutal Takeover finds a deception of epic percentage - an mind-blowing conspiracy to snatch his worldwide businesses and resources, and use his sensationalized arrest to redeem the reputations broken via the Madoff scandal...and make all of it appear like righteous, American justice.
"A really extraordinary tale written in a frank, finished and completely soaking up kind, with such a lot of layers and encompassing monumentally epic issues. A plethora of key questions raised in a pertinent and intensely hard-
hitting fashion." - British Broadcasting corporation (BBC)
