DOJ: Atlanta City Councilman Antonio Brown has been Indicted for Attempting to Defraud Several Financial Institutions

This seems to be the transposable model to go after the Trump Organization network and Detroit.

I love transposable models.

#perkinscoiesucks

So does JonesDay, but we shall continue to wait for the rest of humanity to catch up before addressing these Detroit "Legal Geniuses" (trademark pending).



ATLANTA – Atlanta City Councilman Antonio Brown has been indicted on multiple fraud charges in connection with Brown’s attempts to defraud several financial institutions by taking out loans and making credit card purchases – and then falsely claiming that he was the victim of identity theft and was not responsible for the charges or repaying the loans.
"For years, Antonio Brown allegedly sought to defraud a number of banks and credit card companies by falsely claiming that he was the victim of identity theft," said U.S. Attorney Byung J. "BJay" Pak. "Brown’s scheme was eventually brought to light, resulting in his indictment by the grand jury."       
"This investigation is another example of the power of partnerships in combating financial fraud and identity theft," said Tommy D. Coke, Postal Inspector in Charge of the Atlanta Division. “Postal Inspectors are dedicated to pursuing individuals who seek to defraud for their own financial gain.”
"We are committed to working with our Federal law enforcement partners to aggressively pursue those who falsely claim their identity was stolen in an attempt to defraud financial institutions," said Gail S. Ennis, Inspector General of Social Security.  "I thank the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and IRS Criminal Investigation for their efforts in this case, and the United States Attorney’s Office for bringing these charges."
According to U.S. Attorney Pak, the charges, and other information presented in court: Beginning in 2012, Antonio Brown opened a number of credit cards, which he then used to make thousands of dollars’ worth of purchases for his own personal benefit.  Brown also obtained over $60,000 in automobile loans to finance the purchases of a Mercedes C300 and a Range Rover.  Despite opening and using these credit cards and despite taking the money for the two automobile loans, Brown allegedly falsely claimed that his identity had been stolen and that someone else had made the credit card purchases or had taken out these loans. 
The indictment further alleges that Brown provided false information to Signature Bank when applying for a $75,000 loan in August 2017.  During the loan application process, Brown provided a personal financial statement falsely claiming that he earned $325,000 per year and had $200,000 in available cash or assets.  Brown allegedly knew this information was false because he had recently submitted other loan applications reporting far less income and available cash or assets.  For instance, in a July 2017 loan application to another bank, Brown submitted a 2016 federal income tax return reporting that he earned $125,000 per year (which was $200,000 less than what he represented that his income was to Signature Bank). Further, in an August 2017 loan application to yet another bank, Brown claimed he had an annual salary of $175,000 (which was $150,000 less than what he told Signature Bank), and only had $25,000 in available cash and assets (which was $175,000 less than what he told Signature Bank).
U.S. Attorney Pak noted that the charges in the indictment all relate to conduct that occurred before Brown was elected to the Atlanta City Council.
On July 29, 2020, the Grand Jury charged Antonio Brown, 35, of Atlanta, Georgia, with wire fraud, mail fraud, bank fraud, and making false statements on a bank loan application. 
Members of the public are reminded that the indictment only contains charges.  The defendant is presumed innocent of the charges and it will be the government’s burden to prove the defendant’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt at trial.
The U.S. Postal Inspection Service, the Social Security Administration Office of Inspector General, and the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation Division are investigating this case.
Assistant U.S. Attorneys Thomas J. Krepp and Jeffrey W. Davis, Chief of the Public Corruption and Special Matters Section, are prosecuting the case.

Tales Of The New Crown: Ohio Governor Mike DeWine Got The Cooties & Can Not Campaign With Trump

Mike DeWine got the cooties.

I wonder if it had anything to do with gerrymandering?

There is lost of stealin' of Ohio, too.

Since DeWine will be self-quarantining, I have provided an interesting read, below, so that he can get on Zoom broadcasts to discuss with the public on what exactly all this Corporate Shape Shifting is and what is going on when it comes to all this banking drama of Corporate Parental Rights.

Gov. Mike DeWine tests positive for coronavirus



CLEVELAND, Ohio (WJW) – Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has tested positive for coronavirus.

That news comes from the governor’s office Thursday.

Tales Of The New Crown: United Shores Got The Cooties

Helicopters all day.

Sirens all night.

I am being serenaded.

53 coronavirus cases linked to mortgage company United Shore

Fifty-three employees of Pontiac-based mortgage company United Shore have contracted coronavirus since June 29, and among them are some who worked in the company's headquarters when face masks weren't worn in violation of the governor's executive orders, according to Oakland County's top public health official.

County Health Officer Leigh-Anne Stafford slapped United Shore with an "Emergency Order" Wednesday afternoon, demanding the company enforce social distancing rules, require face coverings and begin daily illness screenings at the office. The order also tells the company to encourage employees to work from home, when possible.

United Shore promises no layoffs during COVID-19 pandemic
https://unitedshore.com/
Failure to obey the order is a misdemeanor, punishable by up to six months prison time and $200-per-day in fines.

United Shore is believed to be the first business in Oakland County to have more than 50 employees get COVID-19, according to Stafford.

A company spokesperson said United Shore has  reviewed Stafford's order and believes the company  is in full compliance with its requests.

The order says that Oakland County Health Division received numerous complaints about the mortgage company violating Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's executive orders that mandate face coverings when indoors and require "minimal activities for business operations."

In an interview, Stafford said some of the employees who fell ill had been working from home, a circumstance that suggests that not all 53 COVID-19 cases may be connected to United Shore's headquarters office on South Boulevard in Pontiac.

“It is not necessarily United Shore; they just reported as being employed by United Shore," she said. "There's a lot of graduation parties going on right now ... there’s lots of activities that people are doing with groups of people."

The United Shore spokesperson issued a statement saying the company's office is operating at less than 50% capacity, and all workers who have returned have done so voluntarily or have a job that requires in-person attendance.

For those working from home, returning to the office is optional until January 2021.

"We have also taken additional precautions to keep team members safe, such as placing acrylic shields between desks, enforcing mandatory masks and providing free masks, making gloves available, installing extra hand sanitizer stations throughout the building, closing the gym and more," the company's statement said.






It continued, "If at any time a team member is exhibiting COVID symptoms, feeling ill, or we are notified of a positive COVID test, the team member along with anyone they have been in close contact with is sent to work from home immediately until a doctor’s note is provided allowing them to return."

The spokesperson said the sickened employees appear to be doing well and are anticipating full recoveries.

United Shore employs about 6,500 people and is one of the fastest-growing companies in Michigan, even hiring 1,500 new employees this spring and summer amid the coronavirus pandemic and recession. United Shore CEO Mat Ishbia has attributed his company's latest growth spurt to exceptionally low mortgage rates that have spurred refinancings and home purchases.

The company's primary business is wholesale mortgage lending, which is borrowing money to underwrite the loans of mortgage brokers. It is ranked No. 1 nationwide in that category by industry publications.

It competes with Detroit-based Quicken Loans in wholesale lending, although the majority of Quicken's business involves direct-to-consumer mortgage lending, which United Shore doesn't do.

Ivanka Trump & Bill "Boo Boo" Barr Discussion On DOJ Human Trafficking Grants & Its New Silent Sub-recipient Grant Management - The Beginning To The End Of CAPTA & ASFA

Bill "Boo Boo" Barr was not very comfortable in discussing the transfer of funding and oversight of human trafficking grants to the DOJ Office of Victim Assistance, nor did he seem very excited about DHS escalating their activities in stopping the trafficking of tiny humans.

DOJ now has subrecipient grant management over the human trafficking grants, which means there is direct guidance and communication, unlike what goes on behind the iron curtain of child welfare, today.
Alternatives For Girls | LinkedIn
https://alternativesforgirls.org/

I think the reason why Boo Boo had the Saddy Face was because it makes his job of covering up for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops robust activities of trying to restructure their activities of trafficking tiny humans, simply for the fact that they are losing their hegemonic status over the administration of the residuals of the peculiar institution, most notably known as Foster Care and Adoption, which is the industry of human trafficking, because slavery was never abolished, due to the 13th Exception.

I wonder why Callista Gingrich was not in attendance?


But, I digress.

TRUMP Celebrates The End Of Trafficking Tiny Humans Month With A Summit - Meet The Human Traffickers


How is Boo Boo supposed to contemporaneously advise and advocate in the capacity of U.S. Attorney General, when it comes to his promulgating Corporate Parental Rights to foreign nations while, in the same breath, advising these same foreign nations on how to maximize revenues in the trafficking of tiny humans?

Newt Gingrich, PRWORA, ASFA & The Christians - The U.S. History Of Trafficking Tiny Humans - Happy Child Abuse Propaganda Month


Boo Boo has no excuse anymore to claim he did not know Detroit is the epicenter of human trafficking, thanks to Alternative For Girls testimony.

I am quite sure Boo Boo is catching heat because these DOJ grants are not going to his foreign interests - these DOJ grants are going to the people who are actually being trafficked - humans.

Those foreign corporations for which Boo Boo promulgates Corporate Parental Rights are losing their sustainability because they are not human.

There is life after foster care, but it is no longer a life of human trafficking.

Praise the lord.

On a side note, longer hair on Ivanka is very flattering.

MS-13 Members and Associates Arrested for Sex Trafficking a Minor

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Eleven members or close associates of the MS-13 gang were arrested this week relating to the sexual exploitation and physical abuse of a minor in northern Virginia and Maryland.
“Sex traffickers often prey upon the most vulnerable victims in our society, and when combined with the horrific abuses of a gang like MS-13, the effects can be devastating,” said G. Zachary Terwilliger, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia. “I have personally handled the prosecution of MS-13 members in northern Virginia for over a decade, including for gang-controlled sex trafficking, and I have led meaningful outreach efforts with the Hispanic community in order to raise public awareness of these serious threats. As I’ve noted before, no one suffers more at the hands of MS-13 than other individuals of Central American birth or ancestry, and cases like this are proof of the need for community leaders to step up, acknowledge this reality, and work together to be part of the solution. I want to thank our law enforcement partners for conducting this complex investigation and arrest operation in a diligent and professional manner, and for their sustained commitment to eradicating MS-13 from our communities. These defendants are charged with heinous offenses, but are appropriately presumed innocent unless or until proven otherwise.”
According to court documents, in Aug. 2018, a 13-year-old identified as MINOR 2 ran away from a youth home in northern Virginia. Shortly after running away, MINOR 2 was introduced to members of MS-13. Members of the gang beat MINOR 2 26 times with a baseball bat as part of a gang initiation. Gang members then sex trafficked MINOR 2 in Virginia and Maryland using the currency of cash and drugs. While in Virginia, men lined up to have sex with her in a wooded area behind one target’s apartment complex. The men gave her drugs in exchange for sex. She also was harbored in various apartments in northern Virginia where men paid her and her handlers cash for sex.
“MS-13 is known for their violence and intimidation, but the horrific crimes alleged in this case show how their cruelty and depravity know no bounds,” said Robert E. Bornstein, Acting Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Washington Field Office Criminal Division. “The FBI and our community will not stand by while children are beaten, plied with drugs, and trafficked for sex. We will continue to work tirelessly with our law enforcement partners to disrupt violent gang activity and bring justice on behalf of the innocent victims on whom they prey.”
According to court documents, MINOR 2 was later beaten again with a bat 26 times. After the second bat beating, MINOR 2 was transported to Maryland, where she was sold to numerous gang members and other customers in exchange for cash. Law enforcement recovered photographs and videos of MINOR 2 while being sexually exploited, along with numerous social media messages regarding the trafficking and sexual exploitation of MINOR 2.
“Today’s arrests are a prime example of the commitment and dedication of local police officers and federal agents to safeguard northern Virginia against crime and violence,” said Edwin C. Roessler Jr., Chief of Fairfax County Police. “The Fairfax County police department will continue to use every resource and leverage the full weight of our agency and our federal partners to prevent violence by interdicting organized crime and holding alleged criminal street gangs accountable.”

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer & Garland Gilchrist Launch BLAC OP - Covert Ops To Cover Up The Stealin' The Children, Land & Vote

BLAC OP
Racism is a public health crisis because if they do not come up with a new #coloredrevolution psyoptic legal defense hybrid campaign election strategy, the health of the "Elected Ones", including their rogue ass cohorts, may quickly wane, allowing them all to fall victim to the cooties.

Gov. retchen Whitmer creates Black Leadership Advisory Council and declares racism a public health crisis

LANSING, Mich. (FOX 2) - Michigan Governor Gretchen announced on Wednesday the creation of the Black Leadership Advisory Council and declared racism as a public health crisis while detailing plans to address it within state government.

Gov. Whitmer spoke on Wednesday about COVID-19 in Michigan, saying that Black people were more likely to die from the virus than white people.

"This pandemic has confirmed and highlighted the deadly nature of these pre-existing inequities caused by racism. COVID-19 is four times as likely to take the life of Black Michigander than a white one," Whitmer said.

The governor said her executive directive to create the Black Leadership Advisory Council will confront systemic racism in the state.

No. The creation of BLAC is just the administrative continuance of Black Lives Matter Phase II cover up for the Detroit Land Bank Authority. Gretchen will not say Detroit Land Bank Authority nor will she say my Sweetie's name. This is what Operation BLAC is all about because she has all the Blue Cross Blue Shield- Detroit Economic Club - Campaign & Election Fraud to deal with. The plan is to let their newly appointed spokestokens on center stage to chant the "white-man-hate-black-man-hate-yellow-man-hate-rainbow-man-hate-white-man...." around a midnight funeral pyre of their fellow co-conspirators who have died of the cooties, under a full moon, of course, as a legal vehicle to go to court, and drag out their public health crisis in hopes of cudgeling any superseding protracted litigation still sealed in those Detroit Grand Juries information.

I should fill out an application...in the spirit of fuchsia, of course.

“Since I was sworn in as governor, I have made it a top priority to include more people of color, more women, and more members of the LGBTQ+ community at the table. We’ve been able to build a more inclusive state government, but there is more work to do. That’s why today, I am proud to create the Black Leadership Advisory Council of Michigan,” said Governor Whitmer. “We must confront systemic racism head-on so we can create a more equitable and just Michigan. This is not about one party or person. I hope we can continue to work towards building a more inclusive and unbiased state that works for everyone.”

How about we start with your activities with the Michigan Catholic Conference and the Archdiocese of Detroit? If that is not pleasurable subject matter to broach in your BLAC OP, how about we start off with something simple, like the child trafficking industry of Foster Care and Adoption in Michigan?  Let's invite MARE because they just refuse to stop selling kids online. 

https://www.mare.org/For-Families/View-Waiting-Children

The Black Leadership Advisory Council will be within the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity and will consist of 16 voting members representing Black leadership in economics, public policy, health and wellness, technology, the environment, agriculture, arts and culture, and more.

BLAC OP is put in LEO. I just love the mnemonics.  I see hashtags, t-shirts and other catchy logos to internationally i-beg.

The Black Leadership Advisory council will be included among a set of diverse ethnic commissions within the state of Michigan. Although African Americans are the largest racial minority in the state, this Council is the first of its kind in Michigan to elevate Black leaders and representatives.

Now, you know they are going to use Garland as the anchor scale for color tolling membership into this elite club, oops, I mean BLAC OP.

The council will work in an advisory capacity to the governor and develop, review, and recommend policies and actions designed to eradicate and prevent discrimination and racial inequity in Michigan. The council will take on this challenge by doing the following:

Identifying state laws, or gaps in state law, that create or perpetuate inequities, with the goal of promoting economic growth and wealth equity for the Black community.

How about starting with the Emergency Manager Law? I sit clutching my pearls to see if anyone is going to invite anyone from JonesDay, like Don McGahn.

Collaborating with the governor’s office and the Black community to promote legislation and regulation that ensures equitable treatment of all Michiganders, and seeks to remedy structural inequities in this state.

I am impressed that they actually pitched justification to fund their co-conspiratorial operations. Wow.

Serving as a resource for community groups on issues, programs, sources of funding, and compliance requirements within state government in order to benefit and advance the interests of the Black community.

Promoting the cultural arts within the Black community through coordinated efforts, advocacy, and collaboration with state government. This is called one of those Public Private Partnerships utilizing the interests of foreign interests in the best interest of the child, starting with bleachbitting education to make us dumber.

Providing other information or advice or taking other actions as requested by the governor. 
The other directive, declaring racism a public health crisis, requires data documenting differences in health outcomes among racial and ethnic groups in Michigan to be collected, analyzed, and made publicly available to help leaders implement equitable policies. Additionally, departments must understand how racial disparities in societal, environmental, and behavioral factors intersect to affect access to resources like good jobs, access to healthy and affordable food and housing, equitable transportation options, and quality public education. 

The Michigan Coronavirus Task Force on Racial Disparities will work in partnership with departments to develop a plan that details how Michigan will eliminate the root causes of the inequities that cause disparities in health outcomes for our residents.

“These past several months have been difficult for all of us, but they have been especially tough for Black and Brown people who for generations have battled the harms caused by a system steeped in persistent inequalities. These are the same inequities that have motivated so many Americans of every background to confront the legacy of systemic racism that has been a stain on our state and nation from the beginning,” said Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist II. “That is why, today, we take the much-needed and long-overdue step of recognizing racism as a public health crisis. It is only after we have fully defined the injustice that we can begin to take steps to replace it with a greater system of justice that enables all Michiganders to pursue their fullest dreams and potential.”

Garlin should really step back and take a look at himself in the mirror because he is part and parcel of the reason why the "system is steeped in persistent inequities" because he got Detroit Land Bank Authority properties for dropping his election challenge in election fraud, probably, then, probably, someone whispered in his ear that if he just forgot everything about absentee ballot fraud in Detroit, that he would magically be crowned governor, as there is already a plan in place to replace Gretchen Whitmer, long before any of his elections were certified, but, hey, what do I know?

To apply to the Black Leadership Advisory Council visit Michigan.gov/appointments and click “Black Leaders Advisory Council” from the drop menu of the application. Applications are due by Wednesday, August 19th. 

I wonder if anyone from the Congressional Black Caucus is providing "Legal Genius" (trademark pending) advice and consent to engage in financial transactions by and through foreign operations called "reparations", that I like to call more stealin', just like they did with TARP.

The speech comes one day after Whitmer issued a directive ordering state departments and agencies to take necessary steps to enforce all COVID-19 executive orders to slow or stop the spread of the virus.

Just this week, Michigan State Senator Tom Barrett tested positive for the virus, prompting the cancellation of Senate sessions this week and concerns about who could have been exposed.

On Tuesday, 150 COVID-19 cases were linked to teens who were attending parties in South Lyon and Fenton in Southeast Michigan.

The clusters are around at least six parties held in July and include the 150 cases - and counting - among 15- to 19-year-olds, according to health officials in Oakland, Genesee and Livingston counties. They're linked to indoor and outdoor graduation parties and prom-type parties.

Prelude To Detroit: What Do IMF, Beirut, Ohio & Ukraine Have In Common?

Q: What do IMF, Beirut, Ohio & Ukraine have in common?

A: Stealin' the children, land & vote. (or, you could just say gerrymandering).

Someone should check on Jim Jordan.

He may need some emotional support right about now.

First, this happened...

Senior Lebanese finance official resigns amid crisis

Alain Bifani, the director general of Lebanon’s Finance Ministry and a member of the country’s team negotiating with the International Monetary Fund, speaks during a press conference, at the Press Club, in Beirut, Lebanon, Monday, June 29, 2020. Bifani who had held the post for 20 years resigned on Monday amid a worsening economic and financial crisis, the ministry said. (AP Photo/Hassan Ammar)
BEIRUT (AP) — The director general of Lebanon’s Finance Ministry, who was on the team negotiating an emergency bailout from the International Monetary Fund, resigned from his post on Monday amid a rapidly worsening economic and financial crisis.

Alain Bifani, a veteran civil servant who held his post for two decades, said he was protesting the way leaders were handling the crisis and that he refuses to be a partner in what is happening.

Bifani’s resignation was the second in two weeks by a member of Lebanon’s negotiating team with the IMF — an indication of the gravity of the crisis and the difficulties facing those talks. Lebanon, one of the most indebted nations in the world, has asked the IMF for a bailout after defaulting on its sovereign debt, but the talks appear to be faltering, with hardly any progress made after more than 15 sessions.

A one-sentence statement by the Finance Ministry gave no details about Bifani’s resignation Monday other than to say that it was received by Finance Minister Ghazi Wazni.

The resignation came two weeks after Henri Chaoul, a financial adviser to the Lebanese government in the talks with the IMF, resigned, saying there is “no real will” for reforms in the country. Experts say Lebanon must crack down on corruption, overhaul its public service sector and improve tax collection, among other long-delayed reforms.

The resignations are a clear indication of the lack of faith in any serious reforms being adopted by the political class amid paralysis and infighting, despite the gravity of the crisis.

“I decided to resign because I refuse to be a partner or a witness to what is happening,” Bifani said during a news conference later Monday. “Everyone should take a clear stance and my decision came after all efforts for the rescue have run out.”

Bifani added that Lebanon will not be able to get any more international funding unless it carries out serious reforms. He added that a different performance is needed in the negotiations with the IMF in order for the talks to have a chance.

The small country is going through an unprecedented economic meltdown that has seen the local currency lose more than 80% of its value against the U.S. dollar in recent months amid soaring prices and popular unrest.

Chaoul, the financial adviser, later tweeted that with Bifani’s “resignation today, he proves that there is no space in the Lebanese landscape for reforms at all levels, including the financial sector.”

Last week, IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva said that discussions with the Lebanese side have so far not led to a breakthrough on a financial assistance program.

“The core of the issue is whether there can be unity of purpose in the country that can then carry forward a set of very tough, but necessary measures,” Georgieva said.

Even as the spiraling crisis has significantly weakened Lebanon’s government, it has refused taken any concrete steps in fighting corruption or launching the badly needed reforms that the IMF and donor countries are demanding to help get the country back on track.

Bifani told the local Al-Jadeed TV earlier that his resignation is an expression of rejection to the way the ruling elite is dealing with the crisis. He added that the route taken in the country is “reckless” and this will badly hurt the public.

Then, this happened...

FBI raids offices at downtown One Cleveland Center building tied to Ukrainian oligarch


CLEVELAND, Ohio — The FBI on Tuesday raided the Cleveland offices of a company with ties to a Ukrainian oligarch that owns several downtown buildings.

FBI spokeswoman Vicki Anderson said agents searched the offices of Optima Management Group in One Cleveland Center at East 9th Street and St. Clair Avenue. A spokesman for the IRS also said his agency’s investigators were present.

Fderal Bureau of Investigation's evidence response team removes boxes of evidence and computer hard drives from the Cleveland offices of Optima Management Group, August 4, 2020, at the One Cleveland Center building.
"Doesn't this just remind you of Detroit?"
Optima is a conglomerate of companies across the United States that has interests in real estate in Cleveland, including One Cleveland Center, the 55 Public Square building and the Westin Cleveland Downtown. Its offices are visible from an entrance and windows on the side of One Cleveland Center, and on Tuesday multiple agents were seen carrying and moving computers, boxes and other items both inside the office and later as they loaded materials into a van.

Anderson said agents also executed search warrants at an office in Miami.

Federal authorities in Cleveland have been conducting a wide-ranging probe involving Ukrainian oligarch Igor Kolomoisky that has been ongoing for quite some time. Kolomoisky is a principal of the Privat Group, a large Ukrainian business company, and principals of the company are also part of Optima.

Optima had a much larger presence in Cleveland about a decade ago when it bought several buildings under the leadership of executive Chaim Schochet. Its presence in Northeast Ohio has dwindled in recent years.

Optima also controlled Warren Steel Holdings, a mill northwest of Youngstown that closed in 2016.

Kolomoisky and a fellow Ukrainian billionaire formed PrivatBank in the early 1990s. It became one of the Ukraine’s key financial institutions, according to Forbes. The Ukrainian government nationalized the bank in 2016 after an investigation suggested there was large-scale fraud over a decade-long period, Forbes reported.

The financial news outlet places Kolomoisky’s net worth at about $1 billion. He remains a complicated political figure in his home country. He is a former governor of Ukraine’s Dnipropetrovsk region.

Published reports said that Kolomoisky had refused to set up a meeting with President Donald Trump’s ally Rudy Giuliani and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in an attempt to dig up dirt against Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden last year.

Kolomoisky’s attorney Michael Sullivan declined comment.

Moscow – The US Embassy in Moscow said Tuesday it had no information on the whereabouts of an American convicted in June of espionage, despite reports that he is being transferred to a prison colony in central Russia.

Paul Whelan’s brother David said Tuesday on Twitter that he “appears to now be in Mordovia, on his way to prison camp IK-17.” The republic of Mordovia, about 350 kilometers (210 miles) east of Moscow, is home to several prison camps.

The Interfax news agency cited David Whelan as saying he received the information from the British Embassy. Paul Whelan holds US, British, Irish and Canadian citizenship.

US Embassy spokeswoman Rebecca Ross said on Twitter: “We have not received official notification from Russian authorities of any such move, despite our repeated recent attempts to gain consular access to Paul.”

Whelan, a former corporate security executive from Michigan, was arrested in Moscow in December 2018; he was convicted in June and sentenced to 16 years in prison. Whelan’s lawyer has said his client was handed a flash drive that had classified information on it that he didn’t know about.
