Recognizing a "billion-dollar opportunity", in early 2009 a bunch of Texas legal professionals hatched essentially the most diabolical con jobs in U.S. historical past. utilising a "legal process" provided to them through financially-desperate monetary advisors, this historical 'grand robbery' started with the U.S. Marshal's dramatic seizure of the Stanford monetary staff workplaces in Houston, Texas.
The 'breaking information' tale broadcast survive CNN...billionaire financier Robert Allen Stanford, accused of working a major fraud from his offshore, Stanford overseas financial institution, and during his U. S. established broker-dealer, Stanford team corporation - a multi-billion buck "Ponzi scheme".
It used to be all a Texas-sized lie.
With genuine trial transcripts and different documentation, Brutal Takeover exposes the true Stanford tale - how with no unmarried client loss or grievance, and with none valid authority, legal professionals 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 will serve to salvage the Madoff-damaged careers on the SEC, let enormous quantities of Texas attorneys in inner most perform to siphon billions from the Stanford resources, be supported through the admittedly "selective and incomplete" findings and "Declarations" of a unmarried accountant with an unlicensed CPA enterprise, and...immediately raise an unquestionably corrupt DOJ prosecutor (Gregg Costa) to a pass judgement on within the 5th Circuit courtroom of Appeals.
On March 6, 2012, after an excessive propagandizing crusade vilifying him as a "Ponzi schemer", a failed try on his lifestyles, and maybe the main outrageously corrupt trial in glossy U.S. historical past, Robert Allen Stanford used to be convicted of this totally synthetic fraud and sentenced by means of a federal pass judgement on to a extraordinary one hundred ten years in criminal. just like the jurors who sat via his trial and have been (strategically) swayed via the photographs of his yacht, deepest planes and sprawling Caribbean property, for the prior seven years Stanford's U.S. and overseas consumers had believed strongly within the government's allegations opposed to him. yet now not anymore.
Written contained in the greatest defense felony the place Stanford has been held due to the fact his conviction, Brutal Takeover finds a deception of epic share - an fabulous conspiracy to snatch his international businesses and resources, and use his sensationalized arrest to redeem the reputations broken by means of the Madoff scandal...and make all of it seem like righteous, American justice.
"A really notable tale written in a frank, finished and totally soaking up sort, with such a lot of layers and encompassing monumentally epic topics. A plethora of key questions raised in a pertinent and intensely hard-
hitting fashion." - British Broadcasting corporation (BBC)
