During OneCoin Trial Fraud Continued In Norway But No Answers From Mona Juul at UN

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 24 –  As Inner City Press covered the OneCoin trial this month, a number of names of indicted co-conspirators emerged on which we are now following up.

  But OneCoin operations continue in a number of countries, on which we are also following up. One of the countries is Norway, where Aftenposten's intrepid reporter Carl Alfred Dahl and photographer Morton Uglum on November 15 bought cash (not OneCoin) tickets to a OneCoin event and went undercover.

On November 23 they published their story, and reached out including to Inner City Press to say that the OneCoin even did not mention the SDNY trial and Konstantin Ignatov's testimony, and that "top leaders in the Norway refuse to comment."

  While the top leaders referred to might be OneCoin / OneLife / DealShaker "leaders," Inner City Press is asking, What about Norway's governmental leaders: regulators, police, prosecutors? What is their duty?

   Inner City Press has closely covered the United Nations, until current Secretary General Antonio Guterres had it roughed up and banned, now 509 days, for inside asking just such corruption questions including about him. This now prevents Inner City Press from entering to put the OneCoin Norway question to the Norwegian Mission to the UN - about to join the UN Security Council - and its ambassador Mona Juul.

  Juul who head the UN Economic and Social Council this year, has refused to answer in any way two e-mails from Inner City Press. Likewise, here is Inner City Press' post-verdict questions to the UN, sent to Guterres and his spokesmen and others, unanswered: "November 22-4:  Now that the OneCoin trial in SDNY has ended with a guilty verdict, while UN has refused to answer on it and on UN-linked World Sports Alliance IgoBit and even Carlos Garcia's use of the UN for a fraudulent coin, now immediately answer this Inner City Press two week old questions: November 8-5: Again, given the increase about of fraud with which the UN is surrounded / involved in under SG Guterres, now belatedly answer this Inner City Press question now that UN-linked World Sports Alliance Saint Clair has been formally indicted in the SDNY, and belatedly comment on the global implications of the related OneCoin fraud being shown in SDNY trial: "October 24-1: On corruption and the UN, please immediate disclose all UN connections of the "World Sports Alliance" with offices at 845 UN Plaza and a website replete with UN-like symbols whose Asa St Clair was presented last night in SDNY Magistrates Court and detained on wire fraud charges for a fraudulent crypto-currency. Also please now on UN Day response to the use of the UN for a fraudulent coin sale by Carlos Garcia, shown in SDNY to be money launderer for UN bribes." We'll have more on this.

  One of the OneCoin money launderers named in the SDNY trial 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.
