Accused of Forgery in Angola While Working For GE Detained Man Will Move to Dismiss

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 26 – A former GE executive now detained on wire fraud and aggravated identity theft charges appeared on March 26 before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge P. Kevin Castel. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the courtroom.  

Wilson Daniel Freita Da Costa was in the green jail jumpsuit of the Hudson County Correctional Facility.

His lawyer said he intends to move to dismiss the indictment in the next week, on grounds of the extraterritorial application of the wire fraud statute to conduct in Angola, and apparently the statute of limitations. 

  The lawyer said the PhotoShop / forgery charged took place long ago. If the motion to dismiss fails, he said, he will ask for release on bail pending trial. 

 The case is US v. Freita Da Costa, 23-cr-610 (Castel)
