In OneCoin Case Now David Pike Charged With Bank Fraud For Scrubbing Ruja Ignatova Name

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Feb 7 – David Pike was repeatedly mentioned during the November 2019 trial which culminated in a jury convicting Mark Scott of money laundering for OneCoin, before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Edgardo Ramos.  

  But Pike did not appear in the trial as a cooperating witness, as did OneCoin's now disappeared founder Ruja Ignatova's brother Konstantin Ignatov. See Inner City Press' first coverage here, and pick-ups here and here (BBC). Pike was not a defendant, or even in the same indictment as Scott and the OneCoin siblings.  

 Now on February 7 there's been the filing of a superseding indictment against Pike, after his waiver of indictment. Pike is indicted for Conspiracy to Commit Bank Fraud, with a quote from his email about "scrubbing" Ruja Ignatova from documents. More on Patreon here.

Inner City Press has requested more information from the US Attorney's office - watch this site.

    Meanwhile, Scott has asked to have his conviction overturned, or a new trial.  Inner City Press will be there. Pike's case is now US v. Pike, 17-cr-630 (Ramos).
