Movement in the Lopag Trust Case

Latest information reveals on-going investigation with case number – Reference Number DY No: 5579/15-09-17

DALLAS, TX, UNITED STATES, September 19, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — As previously widely reported, The Panama Papers, consisting of 11.5 million leaked financial documents, cast a light on information of 214,488 offshore entities.[[i]][[ii]] The documentation was leaked from Mossack Fonseca, who provided legal and corporate services to clients. [[iii]] An unknown person leaked the documents to the German Journalist Bastian Obermayer and the information has provided new exposure.[[iv]] Previously, the Prime Minister of Pakistan was disqualified over prior revelations of the Panama Papers investigations. This incident remains critical in the fight against international money laundering. Sources close to the Pakistani government indicated that the possible investigation was of great importance with companies like Lopag Trust (Lichtenstein), which are being closely examined throughout a number of nations.

The latest investigation, Reference Number DY No: 5579/15-09-17, reveals that the Agency has an on-going investigation against Lopag Trust of Liechtenstein. Sources in Lahore, Pakistan were informed that the FIA Interpol, Pakistan is leading the investigation.

Is the Lopag Trust Reg one of the missing links to identifying who is really facilitating crime and terrorism by hiding their client's money? The Lopag Trust Reg. is important because it appears to expose how some trustees place ethics on hold in order to increase return on investments. The Lopag Trust Reg, based out of Liechtenstein, continues to raise suspicion, based on the number of known people of power connected to it. A partial list of the names of the individuals and groups that are connected to this trust: Russian Oligarchy, Qatar Royal Family and Hosni Mubarak.[[v]]

Various connections regarding any single entity have raised suspicion; therefore, all of the connections elevate it to a new level of concern, as seen in the investigation that the Indian Government opened on the Lopag Trust.[[vi]] [[vii]] The surprise raises where and what these individuals are doing with the money, hidden by the Lopag Trust Reg.[[viii]] According to numerous sources, money was allegedly used for a number of actions ranging from providing financial support to outright terrorism (Qatar Royal Family), facilitation of hiding funds while Russia was under sanctions (Russian Oligarchy), support to known Russian (Russian Oligarchy) criminal underground and weapons negotiations (Hosni Mubarak).

Are new revelations forthcoming? The Panama Papers continue to provide insight into the unknown of how money was and is being laundered for all types of individuals, companies, organization and governments.[[ix]] The Lopag Trust Reg. is one of many Trusts within the Panama Papers. Connecting the dots brings to light what is below the surface level of understanding on these topics.

Increased activity from the ICO in preparation for the EU GDPR

IT Governance, the global cybersecurity experts.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the authority for data protection in the UK, has increased enforcement activity compared to previous years.

ELY, UNITED KINGDOM, September 19, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the authority for data protection in the UK, has increased enforcement activity compared to previous years.

Currently this year, a record 79 enforcement actions have been issued, 47 of which are monetary penalties – already more than the amount in the whole of 2016 – including the largest fine on record in relation to excessive nuisance calls.

The list of ICO enforcement actions includes a number of public and private companies, charitable organisations, local councils and individuals that failed to comply with the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) through incorrect use or storage of personal data.

Incidents include:

• Office cabinets containing sensitive records of children were sent to a second-hand shop.
• DVDs containing interview footage of victims were lost in the post.
• Sharing data with other charities, ranking donors according to wealth and finding out their information that had not been disclosed.
• 99.5 million nuisance calls made using automated marketing messages.

The increased activity suggests the ICO is preparing for the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which imposes tougher requirements to improve the security of personal data for EU residents. With improved awareness of data privacy rights for the general public in recent years and the new Regulation giving individuals greater control of their information, it’s no surprise that enforcement actions are increasing against organisations where a potential breach has been reported.

The founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, Alan Calder, said: “Organisations have a responsibility to themselves and the general public to uphold the security of personal data in compliance with legislation.

“With the GDPR and Network and Information Security (NIS) Directive coming into effect, businesses should think about the necessary steps towards achieving clear organisational and technical policies to avoid the reputational and financial damage associated with data breaches.”

The ICO provides information for organisations and individuals seeking advice on data protection policy along with a platform for reporting concerns.

To help employee understanding, IT Governance offers the Security Awareness Programme, a bespoke training campaign tailored to each organisation’s needs that embeds a data security culture across the board.

Alabama Corporate Whistleblower Center Now Urges an Employee of a Road Builder in Alabama To Call about Rewards If Their Employer Is Falsely Claiming to be a Woman or Minority Owned

If you work for a company that is falsely claiming to be a minority or woman owned to business in Alabama to get an unfair competitive advantage on federal contract bidding-please call us anytime”

— Alabama Corporate Whistleblower Center

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, September 19, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — According to the Alabama Corporate Whistleblower Center, “We are urging an employee of an Alabama based highway contractor to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if their employer has falsely claimed to a minority or woman owned business. As we would like to discuss anytime the rewards for this type of information can be very significant in the event the contractor has misrepresented their ownership status to get preferential treatment on a federal contract." http://Alabama.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

The Alabama Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "Unfortunately, the system designed to assist minority or women owned businesses obtain federal work contracts is very easy to manipulate. As an example, a Caucasian male could appoint his female wife president/CEO of a concrete company in Birmingham, Montgomery, Mobile, Huntsville, Tuscaloosa Wilmington, Dover, Newark, Middletown or anywhere in Alabama and call the company a minority or woman owned business-even though his wife had nothing to do with the day to day operation or management of the business.

Aside from highway contractors falsely claiming to being-a minority or woman owned business the Alabama Corporate Whistleblower Center is interested in hearing about the same type of wrongdoing involving companies doing business with the following federal departments or agencies:

* Department of Defense
* Department of Energy
* Department of Agriculture
* General Services Administration
* Environmental Protection Agency

“If you work for a company that is falsely claiming to be a minority or woman owned to business in Alabama to get an unfair competitive advantage on federal jobs or federal contract bidding-please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 and let’s explore the reward possibilities. Why sit on a potentially winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it could have been worth?" http://Alabama.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Alabama Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a potential whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing. The Alabama Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Major whistleblowers frequently go to the government thinking they will help. It’s a huge mistake. Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower’s information could destroy any prospect for a reward. Do not try to force a company/employer or individual to come clean about significant Medicare fraud, overbilling the federal government for services never rendered, multi-million-dollar state or federal tax evasion, or an Alabama based company falsely claiming to be a minority owned business to get preferential treatment on federal or state projects. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it’s sufficient, we will help you with a focus on you getting rewarded.

Unlike any group in the US the Corporate Whistleblower Center can assist a potential whistleblower with packaging or building out their information to potentially increase the reward potential. They will also provide the whistleblower with access to some of the most skilled whistleblower attorneys in the nation. For more information a possible whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing in Alabama can contact the Whistleblower Center at 866-714-6466 or contact them via their website at http://Alabama.CorporateWhistleBlower.Com

Over 121,000 Investigated Cases of Child Abuse and Neglect in North Carolina

Children’s Home Society of NC – Photography by Suzanne Tucker

Rebecca Starnes, VP Programs and Quality Improvement, CHSNC

According to Children's Home Society of NC early data shows over 121,000 investigated cases of child abuse and neglect during fiscal year July 2016 – June 2017

Too many families are struggling and under severe stress”

— Rebecca Starnes, Children's Home Society of NC

GREENSBORO, NC, USA, September 19, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Early data shows there were over 121,000 investigated cases of child abuse and neglect in North Carolina during fiscal year July 2016 through June 2017. State law requires individuals or institutions suspecting child abuse or neglect to report cases to the Division of Social Services (DSS) for investigation (G.S. 7B-301).

“The high number of children impacted by neglect or abuse indicates too many families are struggling and under severe stress,” said Rebecca Starnes, Vice President of Children’s Home Society of North Carolina. “Abuse and neglect can be the product of a number of issues facing families, including poverty, working multiple jobs to make ends meet, high levels of stress, unrealistic expectations of children, mental health challenges, or substance abuse.”

“DSS is an advocate and fail-safe for the more than 2.2 million children and their families in our state,” said Starnes. “This vital service is provided by dedicated and hard working staff in all 100-counties across North Carolina.”

DSS staff investigates and assesses all suspected cases of child abuse and neglect; diagnoses the problem with the family; provides in-home services to help keep families together; coordinates community and agency services; or, petitions the court for removal of the child from the home, if necessary.

Nearly 70-percent of the abuse and neglect cases were reported by educational personnel, medical personnel, law courts, and human services. Approximately 30-percent were referred by relatives, non-relatives, parents, or care providers. Child victims reported fewer than one-percent of the cases.

“There are different reasons for and levels of abuse and neglect,” said Starnes. “The hopeful news is that families have support. Parents can learn about their children’s needs and learn new, better ways to react. Parents can change their behavior, and even if they’ve had problems or challenges in the past, the majority can provide a safe, loving, and permanent home for their child.”

Following the investigation of reported cases in 2016-17, around 45-percent of the findings indicated that services were needed, recommended, or have been provided. Services were not recommended for 40-percent of the cases, and about 16-percent were determined to be unsubstantiated.

“Depending on the specific needs of children and families,” said Starnes, “Children’s Home Society and other organizations partner with DSS and provide a variety of options including intensive family preservation services (support and education in the home), family education programs, foster care, and adoption services.”

Demographically, the male-female ratio of investigated cases was virtually even at 51 to 49-percent. Almost 40-percent of the cases were ages 0 to 5, with 39-percent ages 6 to 12. Roughly 20-percent of the children were ages 13-17.

“Most of our abuse and neglect cases require intensive family preservation services,” said Starnes. “Teaming with DSS, our specialists work with the child and family daily, providing the education and resources they need to understand and overcome their problems and develop healthier family relationships.”

“The success rate of the intensive family preservation program is remarkable,” said Starnes. “Over 95-percent of the families completed the program. Six months following completion, 98-percent of the children are still in the home in a situation deemed safe by DSS.”

According to Starnes, abuse and neglect impacts rural and urban areas, crosses all socio-economic lines and includes every race.

Approximately 51-percent of the investigated cases of abuse and neglect last year were Caucasian. African-Americans made up the second largest segment with about 36-percent, followed by Hispanic at around 11-percent. All other races combined, including American Indian and Alaskan, were roughly 13-percent of the investigated cases.

“Partnerships with the staff of DSS are critical to achieving success for the child. One organization could not do the work alone,” said Starnes. “We all want children to be in safe, loving, and permanent families, and we’re working together to do what we can to help make that happen.”

Children’s Home Society of North Carolina helps support more than 20,000 children and families annually through a diverse array of services including adoption, foster care, parenting education, teen pregnancy prevention, and family preservation programs.

FICO Professor Howe Highlights Fair Isaac Counter-Intuitive Modeling to Right Bloomberg, NBC, and Others Wrong

SubscriberWise's David Howe, the world’s top credit scoring achiever in human history, turns to FICO to prove small-balance benefits while correcting media

Moreover, there’s not an individual on the planet that today will achieve an 850 FICO (300 to 850 FICO models) score without utilization present at the moment a FICO score is generated.”

— FICO GOAT and US Credit Czar David Howe

SAN RAFAEL, CA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, September 17, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Watch SubscriberWise CEO and FICO grandmaster all-star triple-slam all-time greatest world champion David Howe prove media information incorrect: (YouTube) https://youtu.be/mgXOb-dq_4o

“Earlier in the year, I expanded and corrected oversimplified content from Liz Weston which appeared in publications including the LA Times, Bloomberg, and NBC,” commented David Howe, SubscriberWise founder, FICO Certified Pro, and the world’s most successful credit scoring achiever since the invention of the computer. “Specifically, the misinformation stated: ‘More than two in five (41 percent) mistakenly believed that carrying a small balance on a credit card month to month could help improve a person's credit scores’ (http://www.nbcnews.com/business/consumer/many-americans-are-still-totally-confused-about-credit-scores-n764121).

“Today I want the record to reflect that carrying a small balance, in fact, does improve a person’s credit score,” Howe emphasized.

“For the last several months I’ve been controlling specific trade accounts to demonstrate the positive impact that ‘carrying balances month to month’ actually has on the calculation of a FICO Score. And as I’ve reported – and proved in the past – there’s definitely a benefit in terms of the total number of points when obligations are indicated and credit-to-debt ratios are favorable at the very moment a FICO score is generated.

“In fact, with my particular credit profile the impact of not carrying any balances is 52 points from the max high of 850,” the FICO GOAT added. “Moreover, there’s not an individual on the planet that today will achieve an 850 FICO (300 to 850 FICO models) score without utilization present at the moment a FICO score is generated.

“I encourage anyone doubtful of the facts to view the YouTube video (https://youtu.be/mgXOb-dq_4o) ,” the Credit Czar concluded.

Lackawanna County Retains Marc J. Bern & Partners LLP For Opioid Litigation

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 16, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — MARC J. BERN & PARTNERS LLP is honored to represent Lackawanna County in such a meaningful litigation. We thank Commissioner Patrick O’Malley for his foresight and due diligence regarding this issue. As a former Corrections Officer Patrick understood what overdose meant to our community. The heart ache of losing a loved one. He also understands this from personal experience. No family is ever the same. According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse “Every day, more than 90 Americans die after overdosing on opioids. The misuse of and addiction to opioids-including prescription pain relievers, heroin, and synthetic opioids such as fentanyl – is a serious national crisis that affects public health as well as social and economic welfare. The Centers for Disease Control Prevention estimates that the total “economic burden” of prescription opioid misuse alone in the United States is $78.5 billion a year, including the costs of healthcare, lost productivity, addiction treatment, and criminal justice involvement.” The opioid manufacturer defendants must be held accountable to our society. These multinational corporations have once again placed profits over people and this time have exacted a toll on society that may take years to eradicate. Through false and misleading marketing campaigns, fraud and deception these companies have created nothing short of a human disaster. Counties such as Lackawanna, with their limited resources, are turning to nationally recognized and well-funded trial law firms like MARC J. BERN & PARTNERS LLP. Founding partner, MARC J. BERN has decades of experience and success taking on the pharmaceutical industry holding these goliaths accountable.

MARC J. BERN & PARTNERS LLP concentrates their practice in the handling of complex mass tort litigation. Marc J. Bern has a solid history of representing tens of thousands of individuals, as well as many governmental entities and municipalities throughout the country in various highly publicized mass tort litigations. Marc was a leader in the Fen-Phen diet drug litigation that recovered more than 1 billion dollars in money damages for his clients. In addition to being named co-liaison counsel for the State of New York in both the Diet Drug Litigation and Rezulin Litigation, Marc’s firm was also named to the Plaintiff’s Steering Committee by Federal Judge Schindlin for the MTBE MDL in Federal Court. Marc was also intimately involved in the Federal Litigation on behalf of 10,000 Rescue and Recovery Workers who suffered the harmful effects of the toxins due to their exposures as a result of the attacks on the World Trade Center. In the end, his former firm was successful in recovering over $800 million dollars for those brave men and women. Mr. Bern played a key role in lobbying for the James Zadroga Health and Compensation Act of 2010. His firm currently serves as the personal attorney’s to the Zadroga family. He is a member of the prestigious Million Dollar Advocates Forum and has been featured in Who’s Who in American Law. Martindale-Hubbell has awarded Mr. Bern its pre-eminent AV rating: “Highest Rating in Legal Ability and Ethical Standards,” for over 20 consecutive years.

MARC J BERN & PARTNERS LLP continues to be leaders in mass tort litigation nationwide. Currently, representing over 4000 victims in the Flint Water Crisis, 2000 victims of the WTC attacks and many thousands of others against the pharmaceutical industry nationwide.

TGTE Welcomes UN High Commissioner’s Call for International Prosecution of Sri Lanka

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND, September 14, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ —

The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Mr. ZeidRa’ad Al Hussein, in his opening statement before the 36th Session of the Human Rights Council,referred to the exercise of universal jurisdiction as necessary to ensure transitional justice in Sri Lanka, more so in the absence of credible action by the government of Sri Lanka.

From the beginning, Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam's (TGTE) position has always been that since it was the Sri Lankan State that committed the international crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes, the State itself could not lead the judicial process. The fundamental judicial maxim that the accused cannot be the judge has to be upheld in this instance. Thus, prosecution either in the International Criminal Court or through domestic tribunals in different countries under the universal jurisdiction,are the only ways to provide justice to the Tamil victims.

We call upon the UN member states to invoke universal jurisdiction and initiate criminal prosecution against the leaders of the Sri Lankan politico-military establishment when they set foot on their soil. The recent lawsuit filed against former Army Commander Jegath Jayasuriya is a step in the right direction. We trust that more will follow.

The fact that Sri Lanka’s leaders must seek sanctuary in Sri Lanka itself or must travel only in the shroud of darkness is in itself a victory for justice, even though a very small one.

While we note the High Commissioner’s call for the Sri Lankan government to swiftly operationalize the Office of Missing Persons (OMP) following the recent gazette notification, we beg to differ with him regarding the usefulness of the OMP.The entire OMP mechanism was established without any consultation with the victims, and the Sri Lankan authorities have ruled out the participation of foreign experts, which is the core of UNHRC Resolution 30/1. We urge the UN’s member states to refer Sri Lanka under Article 32 of the Convention on Enforced Disappearances to the Working Group.

As the High Commissioner noted, the mothers of the victims have continued their peaceful protest in the Tamil homeland for over 200 days highlighting the absence of any domestic or international remedy. The Sri Lankan Government is bent on dismantling this peaceful protest by overt and covert means. Recently, Mrs. Mariyasuresh Easwary, an activist and wife of one of the disappeared and a mother of three children, was beaten and sexually assaulted on her way home from the protest. We urge the High Commissioner to be cognizant of the above developments and to do all he can to ensure the safety of the mothers of the disappeared.

As we would like to discuss the rewards for this type of information can be substantial.” http://Colorado.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

* A Colorado based company providing transportation or logistics services to the US Department of Defense or any other federal agency.
* A Colorado based company providing any type of food, fuel or security services to the US Department of Defense.
* A Colorado based road builder or construction company providing services to the Department of Transportation or any other federal agency.

* Special note the business could be located anywhere in Colorado including Denver, Colorado Springs, Aurora, Fort Collins, Lakewood, Thronton, Pueblo, or Greeley.

According to the Colorado Corporate Whistleblower Center, “If you can prove your Colorado based employer has overbilled the US Government and the amount of overbilling is at least a million dollars please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 and let’s discuss how the whistleblower reward program works. Why sit on a potentially winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it might have been worth?” http://Colorado.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Colorado Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a potential whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing. The Colorado Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Major whistleblowers frequently go to the government thinking they will help. It’s a huge mistake. Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower’s information could destroy any prospect for a reward. Do not try to force a company/employer or individual to come clean about significant Medicare fraud, overbilling the federal government for services never rendered, multi-million-dollar state or federal tax evasion, or a Colorado based company falsely claiming to be a minority owned business to get preferential treatment on federal or state projects. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it’s sufficient, we will help you with a focus on you getting rewarded.”

Unlike any group in the US the Corporate Whistleblower Center can assist a potential whistleblower with packaging or building out their information to potentially increase the reward potential. They will also provide the whistleblower with access to some of the most skilled whistleblower attorneys in the nation.
