A money laundering investigation and a Turkish letter rogatory:
- The Wall Street Journal article “Sands Probed in Money Moves”, gives a glimpse into the money laundering investigation of the Las Vegas Sands Corp. The investigation reportedly started because of large casino deposits by former high rollers Zhenli Ye Gon and Ausaf Umar Siddiqui. Mr. Ye Gon’s July 23, 2007 arrest in Maryland, (on methamphetamine drug and money laundering charges), is discussed at “Forfeiture & The DEA’s Asset Search”. “Financial Fraud Via Shell Companies In Nevada, Delaware, Etc.”, meanwhile, referred to Mr. Siddiqui.
- “Warsaw Prosecutors Eye Possible Money Laundering At 50 Platowcowa Street” revealed how criminal prosecutors handling a suspected money laundering case, utilized a letter rogatory in their effort to collect evidence from foreign witnesses. Prosecutors are, of course, not the only ones who employ letters rogatory. The letter rogatory¹ below for example, was issued on April 12, 2012 by the Delaware Federal Court. It seeks evidence from a witness in Delaware, with regard to alimony in a Turkish Family Court case.
¹The letter rogatory has been sanitized for privacy reasons.
