European Central Bank: idiots or criminals?

It’s been a big week for money laundering news from Latvia.  The US’s FinCEN blacklisted AB.LV Bank.  And, KNAB raided the home of Latvian central bank governor Ilmars Rimsevics.

The Media has missed a larger story however.  What is going on at the European Central Bank (ECB)???

After the bailout of Parex Bank, which has been confirmed fraudulent, guess who started buying Latvian bonds?  The ECB did!  The ECB had full knowledge that the Parex bailout was a fraud and that therefore Latvia was also a fraud, and at the same time became the biggest ‘investor’ in the fraudulent bonds issued by Latvia.

And, to make matters even worse, the ECB allowed Latvia to enter the euro currency with full knowledge that Latvia was a fraud.

Now this week we can add two new embarrassments.  Everyone in Latvia has known for many years that Parex used to and ABLV still does launder Russian Mafia money.  But somehow the ECB doesn’t know, even though the ECB is the regulator for ABLV.  How can two million Latvians know something however the regulator doesn’t?

Also, the ECB must know that Rimsevics is corrupt and working in the interests of Parex and ABLV.  For example, after Rimsevics organized the fraudulent Parex bailout, he was caught by whistleblower ‘Neo’ paying a large secret bonus for himself using the small bit of Latvian taxpayer money that hadn’t already been stolen.  And then, prosecution commenced against ‘Neo’ instead of against Rimsevics, at the request of ABLV.

Rimsevics is on the council of the ECB, making important decisions for all of Europe.  And somehow the ECB doesn’t know he is corrupt?  The ‘Neo’ information has been in the newspapers for years.  We have been sending letters to the ECB for years and they never woke up.

The fact that the US had to take action against ABLV because the ECB was sound asleep is a huge embarrassment to the Europe and especially the ECB and we hope the Media will publicize this problem.

Documented: Parex Bank and Tambovskaya Mafia

Attached below is a document dated 29 May 2015 by the “Fiscalia Especial Contra la Corrupcion y la Criminalidad Organizada.”  It is the case prepared by Spain against Vladimir Putin’s Tambovskaya Mafia.  The Tambovskaya are involved in looting governments, international heroin trafficking, and murdering informants.  The wars in Chechnya and Ukraine in which tens of thousands of people were killed could also be blamed on Tambovskaya.

It was already known that Mikhail Rebo (sometimes spelled Rabo) was the main money launderer for Tambovskaya and his wife Tatiana Rebo was manager of the Parex Bank office in Berlin.  Now we have more details.

Parex Bank is mentioned in the document on pages 130, 137, 276, 277, 278, 379, 380, and 392.  Parex sister company International Overseas Services is mentioned on page 130.  Several other notorious Latvian banks are mentioned throughout.

Parex is mentioned again on pages 404, 405, and 406 including specific mention of Tatiana Rebo.  Throughout the document there are references of money going through Latvia and Germany, with Germany sometimes used to mean Parex Bank Berlin.

Page 429 mentions “Rabinovich” who owns a store in Riga.  This could be a reference to Parex shareholder Grigory Rabinovich who was a close friend of the Parex oligarchs.  When Parex was looted prior to the handover of Parex liabilities to European taxpayers, the bank made a fake unrecoverable loan to Rabinovich which seemed to be a refund of the money he paid to purchase Parex shares.  The other minority shareholders including Americans and Swedes didn’t get refunds.  Obviously this was illegal however nobody got punished except taxpayers.

On page 429 starts a discussion of “Chaika” who seems to be Russian General Prosecutor Yuri Chaika who is known to have laundered money through Latvia, and “Vova” who is Vladimir Putin.

The Latvian government and European Bank for Reconstruction and Development have been running a propaganda and disinformation campaign since 2009 to blame the disappearance of the assets of Parex on the United States and Sweden.  Even though it was already revealed in 2014 that the Latvia/EBRD/Parex bailout of 2009 was a cover-up fraud, most newspapers refuse to publish truthful articles and are still sticking with the United States/Sweden story.

The signer of the fraud, Valdis Dombrovskis, is now European Commission Vice President responsible for the integrity of the euro.  Another fraud organizer, Bank of Latvia Governor Ilmars Rimsevics, is on the council of the European Central Bank.  The ECB is the largest investor in Latvian bonds and Rimsevics knows that the bonds were issued fraudulently to bailout a Russian Mafia bank.  The only person Latvia prosecuted in connection with the fraud bailout was whistleblower Ilmars Poikans who exposed Rimsevics for paying a huge bonus to himself after organizing the fraud.

Declaration by John Christmas, Parex Bank whistleblower

John Christmas was the whistleblower from Parex Bank.  He gave fraud information to Ernst & Young in 2004.  He gave fraud information to the Latvian government in 2005.  He was terrorized with threats and fled from Latvia.  Ernst & Young and the Latvian government ignored the information.

The Parex fraud grew much larger and caused the Latvian Financial Crisis in 2008.

Now in 2012, there still has never been any investigation of the whistleblowing by Latvian (or European) authorities even though the fraud occurred in Latvia (and Europe).

This is a declaration written by John Christmas in January 2010.  The declaration was written at the request of Varu Tautai.  A translation (with a few errors) used to be online at VaruTautai.lv.  Most of the information in the declaration has been censored in the Latvian media.

One note:  In January 2010 when the declaration was written, it appeared that the FBI and United States Department of Justice were not going to use the information that they received from Christmas in October 2007.  However, in April 2010 it was revealed that the information was used in the USA versus Daimler settlement.  The FBI was back in communication with Christmas immediately after the announcement of the settlement.

Declaration

Krisjanis Karins, Einars Repse, Ilmars Rimsevics, Janis Maizitis, Janis Kazocins

Krisjanis Karins was Latvian Minister of the Economy at the time John Christmas blew the whistle on Parex Bank.  Karins was one of the recipients of the original whistleblowing letter from 2005, together with Einars Repse (Minister of Defense), Ilmars Rimsevics (Governor of the Bank of Latvia), and Janis Maizitis (General Prosecutor).

All of these gentlemen ignored the whistleblowing and therefore hold reponsibility for causing the Latvian Financial Crisis.  However, Latvian newspapers refuse to inform the Latvian people and therefore the same men are still running Latvia in 2012.

When Christmas began receiving murder threats from Parex, Karins told Christmas to report the problem to Janis Kazocins at the Latvian Constitutional Protection Bureau.  Kazocins also ignored the problem and sat and watched while the national economy was destroyed.  He also remains in power today.
