In OneCoin Trial Amer Abdulaziz Named As Money Launderer Who Stole 100M Euro Still Horsing Around

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive Patreon
BBC - The Times UK - Honduras - The Source 

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 23 –  As Inner City Press covered the OneCoin trial this month, a number of names of indicted co-conspirators emerged on which we will now follow up.

  One of them was Amer Abdulaziz Salman.

    As Inner City Press exclusively reported on November 6, surprise cooperating witness Konstantin Ignatov brought up Amer Abdulaziz during his testimony, live-tweeted @InnerCityPress:

AUSA: Who did Gilbert Armenta work with on money laundering?

Konstantin: Mark Scott, Amer Abdulaziz...

   After a sidebar discussion, the Assistant US Attorney said "We'll come back to Mr. Aziz who stole at least 100 million Euros from OneCoin.

AUSA: Who was this Mr. Aziz? 

Konstantin: One of the main money launderers for Ruja.

AUSA: Did you ever report to the police any of these theft? 

Konstantin: No. The money came from a criminal activity." See here.

    So in this US Federal trial, under oath and not contradicted by any of the cross-examination, Amer Abdulaziz was named as a launderer of money from criminal activity, who went beyond that and stole $100 million Euro from OneCoin and Ruja.

    Meanwhile, through his Phoenix fund, Amer Abdulaziz has been buying up thoroughbred horses, but industry participants tell Inner City Press, not selling them. "It's the perfect front for money laundering," one of them told Inner City Press on condition of anonymity.

     During the trial, Inner City Press tweeted its surprise the Amer Abdulaziz was, unlike Ruja Ignatova, living in plain sight. It has continued: he has re-tweeted as recently as November 20.

   While some say he is going into hiding, it would seem that the US FBI or its overseas partners could easily bring him in.   So why haven't they? This is the first in an Inner City Press series. More on Patreon here.
