Miles Guo Got New May 20 Trial Date Wang Wants to Sever Her Case to Avoid Prejudice

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Feb 1 – After a circus-like civil case involving Guo Wengui in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, which Inner City Press closely covered, here, March 15, 2023 saw the unsealing of a twelve-count Indictment charging

HO WAN KWOK, a/k/a “Miles Guo,” a/k/a “Miles Kwok,” a/k/a “Guo Wengui,” a/k/a “Brother Seven,” a/k/a “The Principal,” and KIN MING JE, a/k/a “William Je,” with various wire fraud, securities fraud, bank fraud, and money laundering charges. "

Not mentioned was another, related arrest on March 15, of Guo's chief of staff Yangping Wang, aka Yvette Wang. Inner City Press, lone media in the Magistrates Court, live tweeted her presentment.

Jump cut to January 9, 2024 when Guo and Wang were arraigned on the superseding indictment. It was done on no notice; none of his supporters were there. Inner City Press was, and live tweeted, threadette here:

Guo: Good morning your Honor. Absolutely not guilty!

On January 12 Guo's lawyers filed that they want to move to dismiss the superseding indictment that added conspiracy, and so want to adjourn the trial to June 3. Letter on Patreon here.

On January 16, Judge Torres set a schedule and set the trial for May 20: "The trial scheduled for April 8, 2024, is ADJOURNED to May 20, 2024." Order on Patreon here

On February 1, Wang in arguing to sever her case noted DOJ arguments about her prior counsel (having worked on the prosecution of Guo) and noted she is not accused of buying "a $140,000 piano and $72,000 of mattresses." Wang's lawyer introduces three exhibits under seal, letter on Patreon here.
