Crimes From Ukraine to Malaysia As the Bill Comes Due But Only Some Money Returned, Larry Ray's Drones

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPNReview

EDNY / SDNY, March 14 -- There were crimes all over but only some were being prosecuted. In Ukraine the talk was of war crimes and rightly so. But the UN kangaroo courts people cited too were intentionally toothless, and co-conspirators like Antonio Guterres were permitted to stand by microphones as if it were justice and not personal gain they were after.

   Atop the UN system, the one body that could authorize air strikes if you could still call it that, was run for the month by the United Arab Emirates, which engaged in extrajudicial detention and refoulement, and whose royals had stolen so much, from Malaysians and now, through Socotra, from Yemenis.

   In the world of only-in-New York, Larry Ray said he had exposed Bernie Kerik, even as he turned Sarah Lawrence College students into prostitutes and human drones. Kurt was covering the trial, shaking his head as Santos Rosario finished up with tales of diapers and a video he'd shot of Larry Ray getting smashed in the face by DiTommaso in the Hudson Hotel. Would any jurors see Ray as a victim, if only of insanity?

    In the Jho Low trial in Brooklyn finally the bill was coming due. Like so many things, it came down to numbers. Who stole the most? Who's Number One? Jho Low now laughing with the CCP in China was at the top, with $1.42 billion. How much was he having to give them, like MBS' shake down in the five-star jails in Saudi?

   Najib despite his clown-faced protests wracked up $756 million while his son in law, and Wolf of Wall Street backer, Riza Aziz stole $238 million.  Shifty Goldman Sachs' Tim Leissner stole $73.4 million, of which he's returned at most $43.7 million, while the subordinate he was cooperating against, Roger Ng, took at most $35.1 million.  A nice haul for sure. But the only defendant? 

On the much air-brushed, by many parties, front of the UAE, Khadem al-Qubaisi was said to have taken $472.8 million and an Aabar-ite on whom Kurt vowed to have more took $76.6 million. And the other UAE royals and diplomats? The UAE Mission of Lana Nusseibeh had yet to answer a single e-mail, and colluded with the UN of weasel of Sutton Place Antonio Guterres in banning all questions.

Aziz had to pay back $60 million he put into the Wolf of Wall Street. So why hadn't any of the money put into UN affiliates, including well documented and even publicized transactions by Jho Low (including to the UN Foundation and IRIN now re-named) been returned? This would be a public and ongoing project. #TheWeaselsOfWallSteet.

 Kurt had first heard of Jho Low while still in the UN, before he was thrown out. Jho Low appeared at a UN press conference in front of the ubiquitous and now defiled logo. #TheWeaselOfWallStreet, 1st in a new series
