After OneCoin Trial Tweets Named Amer Abdulaziz As Launderer Farrington Quits Horse Thieving

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.

  One of them was Amer Abdulaziz Salman. From his Phoenix Thoroughbred's, Inner City Press is informed that Dermot Farrington has left.

    As Inner City Press exclusively reported on November 6, surprise cooperating witness Konstantin Ignatov brought up Amer Abdulaziz during his testimony, live-tweeted @InnerCityPress, and see here.

  Now those tweets are used without any credit in a derivative article by the Racing Post's Peter Scargill - apparently dodginess pervades the part of the industry; we'll have more on this.

    As we've previously noted, through his Phoenix fund, Amer Abdulaziz has been buying up thoroughbred horses. Among those he's worked with, and with whom authorities may wish to speak and even play lets-make-a-deal are Tom Ludt and, having broken with Phoenix Thoroughbreds, Kerri Radcliffe.

  Phoenix Thoroughbred's horses have included "Advertise," the son of Showcasing, set to begin a stallion career projected to be lucrative at the National Stud in New Market in 2020.

  But is it all based on money laundering for OneCoin? And what of the royals who have been linked in, not only Queen Elizabeth through the Jockey Club but also the al Thani family of Qatar, the Maktoum family of Dubai and the Saudi royals, whom some sources tell Inner City Press have harbored Ruja Ignatova herself . We'll have more on this. More on Patreon here.

 "It's the perfect front for money laundering," one horse-breeding industry participant 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 third in an Inner City Press series. More on Patreon here.
