UPDATED: Chris Gwilliam fled from Latvia

The Latvian government hired Chris Gwilliam to run Parex Bank and then Reverta resolution company.  His objective seems to have been covering-up the fact that Parex was a fraud and the bailout of Parex was also a fraud.  He claimed that his objective was to recover as much money as possible for taxpayers, but obviously he did not do that because the Latvian government did not sue and prosecute Valery Kargin, Viktor Krasovitsky, and Ernst & Young.  A contact informed LawlessLatvia of Gwilliam’s secret departure in December.  That contact was afraid for his life and refused to repeat the story when asked.  Gwilliam’s departure has been completely censored from the media.  Gwilliam is featured in the 2013 LatviavEBRD Youtube video.

UPDATE:  We are not certain why Gwilliam fled from Latvia, however we speculated it was because of massive money laundering and fraud at Parex.  Now, a credible source has given a different explanation.  The source claimed to know that Gwilliam was questioned by the United Nations Security Council about arms sales from Belarus through Latvia to Togo and Ivory Coast.  According to the source, Parex was “aiding and abetting the contraband.”  Remember: Parex (now named Citadele and Reverta) is fraudulently funded by the EBRD using your tax money.

Parex Bank, Ivory Coast, Laurent Gbagbo, Oleg Boiko

Below is the link to a Latvian news article about arms smuggling in Africa.

The article states that in 2004, the French peacekeeping force in Ivory Coast was assaulted by SU25 bombers and military helicopters from Belarus.  Nine French soldiers died.

The bombers and helicopters were discovered to have been ordered and paid for by “R. M. Holdings” of Latvia.

The article explains connections with Laurent Gbagbo and Oleg Boiko.

The article does not explain two connections with Parex Bank.  Oleg Boiko’s company Union Bancorp, Inc. is a minority shareholder in Parex Bank.  And, Robert Montoya Holdings is a minority shareholder in Parex Bank.

Oleg Boiko is well known in Latvia because after the assets disappeared from his bank in Russia, he moved to Latvia and immediately received a banking license for Baltic Transit Bank and a casino license for Vegas Casino.
