In OneCoin Criminal Case Greenwood Court Date Pushed Back Again to Aug 5 Still No Exhibits

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 19 -- For money laundering for scam crypto currency OneCoin, lawyer Mark Scott was convicted by a jury after testimony by Konstantin Ignatov and others but was allowed to remain free on bail pending sentencing. Sebastian Greenwood has now been charged, see below. But his court date was pushed back, Inner City Press first reported: "ORDER as to Karl Sebastian Greenwood: The conference scheduled for June 3, 2020, is hereby RESCHEDULED to occur as a videoconference using the CourtCall platform on June 24, 2020 (Signed by Judge Edgardo Ramos on 6/5/2020)."

  Now it's pushed back into August: "MEMO ENDORSEMENT as to Karl Sebastian Greenwood (5) on [293] LETTER MOTION addressed to Judge Edgardo Ramos from Bruce Barket dated June 17, 2020 re: Request to adjourn conference. ENDORSEMENT: The June 24 pretrial conference is adjourned to August 5, 2020, at 9:00 AM. (Signed by Judge Edgardo Ramos on 6/19/2020) (ap)."

The basis of the request?  "On the government’s consent, we are writing to request an adjournment of next week’s court conference from June 24, 2020 to August 5, 2020. The reason for this request is that while we are still navigating the voluminous and complex discovery, our ability to confer with our client remains substantially limited. Under normal circumstances we would have been able to meet with our client for several hours per day, several days per week, to discuss and prepare the case as necessary. But under current restrictions we are limited to a single thirty-minute phone call per week. The requested adjournment will thus account for these restrictions, and it will allow us sufficient time to communicate with Mr. Greenwood before our next appearance in Court." When is justice delayed, justice denied? Watch this site.

 In a parallel world on March 12 the US Attorney's Office belatedly moved to revoke Scott's bail, citing Scott's continue use of OneCoin derived funds and, explicitly, Inner City Press' "blog post" about Scott dining out in Florida while on home incarceration. 

 Assistant US Attorney Chris Demase said they have first read out it in the blog post and couldn't believe it - but that it was proved by GPS information from Scott's location monitoring ankle bracelet.  

  Mark Scott's Florida based lawyer David M. Garvin sputtered over the telephone from Florida, with Scott next to him, that the dinner had involved lawyers. He tried to explain Scott's use of OneCoin funds. But Scott was ordered to turn himself in to the US Bureau of Prisons on March 13. And on that day, Konstantin Ignatov was released. Strange symmetry.

Another of his lawyers, when Inner City Press left the courtroom, was arranging to pay for a transcript, perhaps to appeal. Inner City Press on March 13 asked the US Attorney's Office Press Office for its filings not yet in the public docket.  Here is Inner City Press' Periscope video upon leaving the courthouse. The case is US v. Scott, 17-cr-630 (Ramos).
