Another trader in Florida who is now working alongside the government in trying to bring the larger naked short selling cartels to justice had a similar experience. The man will have to remain anonymous here, but this is his story. He brought down Elgindy by having his secretaries copy every page on Elgindy's private site for years. He has been planted in Red Sea Management seminars and recorded the manager of the company stating that he uses naked short selling to kill small companies and would kill anyone in the room who ever spread the news. That manager is Jonathan Curshen, an American who was trained as a broker in Vancouver before eventually seeking diplomatic status in Costa Rica - which he has been granted. His offices are on the top two floors of the Israeli embassy in Costa Rica and his body guard is the head of security for the embassy. He has risked his life to help government agencies gather evidence on the cartels, this is another consequence of naked short selling. source
Pair accused of fraud in short-selling scheme
NEW YORK - Stock picker Anthony Elgindy was convicted of racketeering and fraud yesterday for parlaying illegal tips from an FBI agent into trading profits by short-selling stocks of companies under government investigation. Elgindy, 36, who also went by the name Anthony Pacific, was convicted by a federal jury in Brooklyn, N.Y., after four days of deliberations in a trial that began in November. The former agent, Jeffrey Royer, 41, also was convicted. The two men could face 10 to 20 years in prison. ...After his arrest in May 2002, federal prosecutors suggested that Elgindy may have had advance knowledge of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks because he had predicted beforehand that the stock market would collapse and had tried to sell stock in his children's trust funds. Royer was accused of tipping Elgindy to an FBI probe into whether the Egyptian-born trader knew about the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks before they occurred. That investigation did not result in charges against Elgindy, but jurors heard references to it throughout the trial. Elgindy's attorneys said they would examine the issue as they began to plan an appeal. source

"It is clear that apartment explosions in Moscow would not have happened if
somebody in the Russian political elite did not want them," Novaya Gazeta
opined on January 24, 2000. "One by one, pieces of puzzle were put together.
But there were a few details that were lacking. They began to clear in
January, when Zhirinovsky and Chubais finally broke up. And at the same
time, some of the participants started to tell their version of events. In
the Versiya newspaper, there was an article about the meeting of [Alexander]
Voloshin with [Shamil] Basayev in France." Basayev was the radical Muslim
leader who planned the violence on Dagestan. "This did not happen in Paris,
as some of the newspapers reported later, but on the villa of Adnan
Khashoggi, Arabic millionaire, on the Mediterranean."
French intelligence agents monitored the meeting and details surfaced in
the public print. Khashoggi denied that he had attended the meeting. But Its
main participants - Anton Surikov, "formerly" of Army special forces, and
Aleksandr Voloshin, Yeltsin's Chief of Staff - offered no comment. When
reporters asked Surikov, he claimed that he hadn't travelled abroad in
years, especially not to France. This did not quite square with the public
record, however, Just a few months before, he was in Washington, D.C. to
meet with Yuri Maslukov, Russia's deputy prime minister, and Michel
Camdessus, managing director of the IMF. Surikov had also flown to France on
a couple of occasions - once in December 1994, and again in the summer of
1999. He had departed on June 23 aboard an Aeroflot bound for Paris, in
fact, and returned from Nice on July 21, nearly a month later.
Khashoggi professes to be amused by the activities of Perle and Hillman as members of the policy board. As Khashoggi saw it, Trireme’s business potential depended on a war in Iraq taking place. “If there is no war,” he told me, “why is there a need for security? If there is a war, of course, billions of dollars will have to be spent.” He commented, “You Americans blind yourself with your high integrity and your democratic morality against peddling influence, but they were peddling influence.”
