MAHMUT ÖVÜR : JİM CAN VE ABD ADALETİ

ABD’nin Zarrab davasındaki
duyarlılığı göz yaşartıyor. Başta CHP olmak üzere umudunu ABD’ye bağlayan
muhalefet de ellerini ovuşturarak bu kirli tezgâhı izliyor. Dahası
ambargo meselesini “yolsuzluk” gibi sunarak
işin içine eski bakanı ve Halkbank’ı da katması iç siyaset açısından tadından
yenilmez oluyor. Bu kirli tuzağın piyonu FETÖ ise boş durmuyor.

Enver Altaylı üzerinden MİT’in İran masasında görevli eski MİT mensubu Mehmet Barıner‘in kaçırılmasından Türkiye-Mike Flynn ilişkisinden
gerilim çıkartmaya kadar her yola başvuruyor. Perdenin önünde bunlar
olurken arka planında daha bilmediğimiz ne tezgâhlar var Allah bilir.

Şu günlerde
İstanbul’un para ve borsayla ilişkili gayrimeşru dünyasında ilginç bir isimden
söz ediliyor. Adı 
Cem
Can
, Amerikalılar ona Jim
Can 
diyor. Almanya’yla da ilişkili ve aynı zamanda Kanada
vatandaşı… Adamı FBI üç yıldır “500
milyon dolarlık kara para aklama,
 dolandırıcılık
ve vergi kaçakçılığı
” suçundan arıyor. Hakkında 
New York savcılığınca
açılan soruşturma da sürüyor.

Cem Can bu işi yaparken yalnız değil tabii, Kanadalı Brian De Wit, ABD’li Robert Bondfild, Belize’li Andrew Godfrey, Bahamalı Kelvin Leach ve Rohn Knowles‘le birlikte
yargılanıyor. Duruşmada mağdurların avukatı Loretta Lynch sanıkları şöyle suçluyor: “Bandfield ve işbirlikçileri sadece dolandırıcılık tertip etmekle kalmamış aynı zamanda vergi yasalarımızı çiğneyen yalan ve hileye dayalı son derece ayrıntılı ve kolektif bir
yapılanmatasarlamışlardır.
” Bu sistemle ABD’de, 4-5 milyar dolarlık bir
dolandırıcılık yapıldığından söz ediliyor. ABD vatandaşı Robert Bandfield mahkemeye de
çıkarıldı ama diğer sanıklar kaçak. ABD hükümeti, ilgili ülkeler Belize, Bahama
ve Kanada’dan onların iadesi talebinde bulundu.

Ve bu olay çok
geniş biçimde CBC News’te haber oldu.
Şimdi gelelim bu olayın Türkiye
ile ilgisine…

ABD mahkemeleri
veya FBI “
Jim” Can‘ı Kanada’dan talep ediyor ama o Türkiye’de yaşıyor. Ve iki
vahim iddia dikkat çekiyor: Bu iddialara yol açan da Cem Can‘ın Türkiye’de
yaptıkları ve ilişkileri.

Can‘ın sevgilisi olduğu iddia edilen Daira Stachura isimli kadın
üzerinden hâlâ eski işini yürüttüğü
söyleniyor. Hatta bazı özel bankalardaki hesabına gelen
yüklü miktarlardaki para, o bankaların
bile dikkatini çekip şüphe” oluşturuyor.

Ama daha vahimi, FETÖ ile ilişkili olduğu iddiası. Can, FETÖ’nün kirli para dünyasının bir parçası mı? Cem Can‘ı Türkiye’de koruduğu iddia edilen kişinin, FETÖ’cü savcı Zekeriya Öz‘ün Sabah’ta
yayınlanan “bedava tatil” olayında, Ali Ağaoğlu‘nu tehdit etmeye
giden kişiler arasında yer alan iş adamı Osman
Ağca 
olması bu soruyu akla getiriyor.

O olayı Ağaoğlu şöyle anlatmıştı:

“Aytaç
Ocaklı benim yanımda 
Halil İbrahim Demirhan‘ı hatırladığım
kadarıyla, ‘Bu iş burada kalmaz, bunun hesabını sizden sorarız, sayın savcımı size yedirmeyiz’ sözleriyle
tehdit etti. Ben de Ocaklı’yı ofisimden kovdum. Bu arada Tayfun Aktaş ve Osman Ağca da geldi.” Tüm
bunlar ilk bakışta ABD’yi ilgilendiriyor görünse de perdenin arkasında neler
döndüğü tam bilinmiyor. Acaba hâlâ FETÖ’nün finans ayağı Türkiye’de iş yapmaya
devam ediyor mu? Şu soru da önemli: Uydurma iddialarla bir bakanı ve
Türkiye’nin en önemli bankasını dava konusu yaparak Türkiye’yi sıkıştırmaya
çalışan ABD yargısı ve FBI, nasıl oluyor da Jim Can‘ın Türkiye’de olduğunu bilmiyor?

Yoksa birileri
ABD’de bunu engelliyor mu?

Six Corporate
Executives and Six Corporate Entities Indicted for Orchestrating a $500 Million
Offshore Asset Protection, Securities Fraud, and Money Laundering Scheme

A
multi-count indictment was unsealed this morning in federal court in Brooklyn,
New York, against six individual defendants: Robert Bandfield, a U.S. citizen;
Andrew Godfrey, a citizen of Belize; Kelvin Leach, a citizen of the Bahamas;
Rohn Knowles, a citizen of the Bahamas; Brian De Wit, a citizen of Canada; and
Cem Can, a citizen of Canada; and six corporate defendants: IPC Management
Services, LLC; IPC Corporate Services Inc.; IPC Corporate Services LLC
(collectively, IPC Corp); Titan International Securities, Inc. (Titan); Legacy
Global Markets S.A. (Legacy); and Unicorn International Securities LLC
(Unicorn).1 The charges include conspiracy to commit securities fraud, tax
fraud, and money laundering. Bandfield’s initial appearance for removal
proceedings to the Eastern District of New York is scheduled for tomorrow at
the Wilkie D. Ferguson Jr. United States Courthouse, 400 North Miami Avenue,
Miami, Florida. The government will seek extradition for the other individual
defendants.

The indictment was announced by Loretta E. Lynch, United States Attorney
for the Eastern District of New York; George Venizelos, Assistant Director-in-Charge,
Federal Bureau of Investigation, New York Field Office (FBI); Shantelle P.
Kitchen, Acting Special Agent-in-Charge, United States Internal Revenue
Service, Criminal Investigation, New York (IRS-CI); and James T. Hayes, Jr.,
Special Agent-in-Charge, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE),
Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), New York.

“As alleged, Bandfield and his co-conspirators devised not only a
fraudulent scheme but an elaborate corporate structure based on lies and deceit
designed to enable U.S. citizens to evade and circumvent our securities and tax
laws. They set up sham companies with figureheads at the helm in an attempt to
deceive U.S. law enforcement and regulators and bragged about their scheme to
their clients,” stated United States Attorney Lynch. “Today’s sweeping
indictment, charging the individuals and companies responsible for this $500
million scheme, closes this fraudulent offshore safe haven and sends a strong
message to those who seek to abuse the financial markets in order to enrich
themselves that we will investigate and prosecute them no matter where they set
up shop.” Ms. Lynch expressed her grateful appreciation to the United States
Securities and Exchange Commission for its significant cooperation and
assistance in the investigation.

“As alleged, the defendants concocted an intricate scheme using sham
companies to make money while repeatedly evading and violating U.S. securities
and tax laws. The indictment of these defendants should serve as a stern
reminder that such greed-based behavior comes at a cost. The FBI will continue
to use its investigative expertise in working with law enforcement partners to
identify, disrupt, and dismantle sophisticated fraud schemes to ensure the
integrity and transparency of our financial markets,” stated FBI Assistant
Director-in-Charge Venizelos.

“The investigation of offshore tax evasion and money laundering are top
priorities for IRS-Criminal Investigation, and we are committed to using all of
our enforcement tools to stop this abuse. The enactment of the Foreign Account
Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) is yet another example of how it is becoming more
and more risky for U.S. taxpayers to hide their money globally. Moreover, this
partnership of IRS-CI, the FBI, HSI, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office
demonstrates the government’s resolve to combat international crime,” stated
IRS-CI Acting Special Agent-in-Charge Kitchen.

“Today’s arrests and charges disrupt an illicit offshore operation that
was allegedly laundering money for corrupt clients and cheating the U.S.
government out of half a billion dollars in tax revenue,” said HSI New York
Special Agent-in-Charge Hayes. “The collaboration between HSI and its federal
law enforcement partners serves as an example of law enforcement’s global reach
to dismantle criminal organizations.”

As alleged in the indictment, between January 2009 and September 2014,
this group of conspirators, masquerading as financial professionals, concocted
three interrelated schemes to: (a) defraud new investors in various U.S.
publicly traded companies through, among other things, fraudulent concealment
of the defendants’ corrupt clients’ ownership interests in the U.S. publicly
traded companies and their fraudulent manipulation of artificial price
movements and trading volume in the stocks of those companies; (b) aid the
corrupt clients to circumvent the IRS’s reporting requirements under, among
other statutes, the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA); and (c) launder
money for the corrupt clients through financial transactions to and from the
United States involving proceeds of fraud in the sale of securities. As part of
this fraudulent offshore scheme, the defendants laundered approximately $500
million for the corrupt clients—who included more than 100 U.S. citizens and
residents.

To facilitate these interrelated schemes, the defendants created shell
companies in Belize and Nevis, West Indies, for the corrupt clients and placed
nominees at the helm of these companies. This structure was designed to conceal
the corrupt clients’ ownership interest in the stock of U.S. public companies,
in violation of U.S. securities laws, and enable the corrupt investors to
engage in trading under the nominee’s names through brokerage firms also set up
in Belize. For example, this structure enabled the defendant De Wit and a U.S.
corrupt client to manipulate the stock of Cannabis-Rx, Inc., a microcap or
penny stock company which traded under the ticker symbol CANA, through a series
of orchestrated transactions between March 27, 2014 and April 16, 2014. On
March 28, 2014 alone, De Wit received at least five telephone calls from the
corrupt client with specific instructions to fraudulently orchestrate the
trading of CANA’s stock. That day, CANA’s stock, which had not traded since
July 2, 2013, had a trading volume of 189,800 shares. Ultimately, CANA’s stock
price plummeted from $13.77 per share on March 27, 2014 to $0.50 per share on
April 16, 2014.

The defendants’ scheme also enabled the U.S. corrupt clients evade
reporting requirements to the IRS by concealing the proceeds generated by the
manipulated stock transactions through the shell companies and their nominees.
For example, in response to a request received by a U.S. corrupt client from a
U.S. transfer agent who had to determine whether the proceeds from manipulative
stock trading transaction were taxable under U.S. law, the defendant Bandfield
forwarded an IRS Form signed by co-defendant Godfrey as the nominee for the
shell company which had been set up at the request of the client. At one point
during the government’s investigation, Bandfield boasted to an undercover law
enforcement agent that he had specifically designed this “slick” corporate
structure to counter President Barack Obama’s new laws, a reference to FATCA.

An example of how the defendants’ scheme enabled U.S. corrupt clients to
launder the proceeds from their fraudulent trading in U.S. public companies was
the production of unidentifiable debit cards for the clients allowing them to
freely transfer their proceeds back into the United States.

The government’s case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States
Attorneys Jacquelyn M. Kasulis, Winston M. Paes, and Brian D. Morris.

Today’s announcement is part of efforts underway by President Obama’s
Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force (FFETF) which was created in November
2009 to wage an aggressive, coordinated and proactive effort to investigate and
prosecute financial crimes. With more than 20 federal agencies, 94 U.S.
attorneys’ offices, and state and local partners, it is the broadest coalition
of law enforcement, investigatory, and regulatory agencies ever assembled to
combat fraud. Since its formation, the task force has made great strides in
facilitating increased investigation and prosecution of financial crimes;
enhancing coordination and cooperation among federal, state, and local
authorities; addressing discrimination in the lending and financial markets;
and conducting outreach to the public, victims, financial institutions and
other organizations. Over the past three fiscal years, the Justice Department
has filed more than 10,000 financial fraud cases against nearly 15,000
defendants. For more information on the task force, visit www.stopfraud.gov.
