In Trio Arrested For $14 Million PPP Fraud Man With Fake IDs and Asylum Status Is Released

BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 18 –   Amos Mundendi is charged in connection with a $14 million defrauding of the US Paycheck Protection Program meant to help business amid COVID-19.

 But there's more to the story.  

  On May 18, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Paul A. Engelmayer held a bond hearing. Inner City Press covered it.  

 The Assistant US Attorney emphasized the Mundendi uses other names and IDs, and says he is "Moorish" citizen. The defense said he is a refugee from the DR Congo, and has a child in Dallas. 

 Judge Engelmayer, noting that it was not a case with a presumption of detention, affaired Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn's release of the defendant on conditions including a $200,000 bond.

He is still in custody, pending interview of the suretors by the US Attorney's Office. There are co-defendants.

The overall case is US v. Bella, 21-cr-247 (Engelmayer)
