Ponzi-accused Centaur man Scott Williams - Duane McGaw, David Wotherspoon

Investigators reckon Australian fraudster Scott Williams made at least $28 million out of global Ponzi scheme called Centaur Litigation. Williams, a man of many, many names who has been convicted for running a boiler room scam in Thailand, is at the centre of a two-year chase for assets that’s circled the globe from the Cayman Islands to Thailand and has now reached its climax in a Sydney courtroom.

At stake is the chance of any recovery for investors who pumped £80 million ($128m) into the Centaur fraud. One of Centaur’s arms, Buttonwood, ran out of a Hong Kong office, while another, Orion Litigation, worked from Singapore. Williams lived for many years in Thailand. Two other key Centaur players, Briton Brendan Terrill, who ran the Hong Kong office, and Canadian Duane McGaw, have scattered across the globe. Terrill was sentenced to three years’ jail in Britain for child porn. McGaw is in Vancouver running a Japanese restaurant and investing millions in real estate.

Duane McGaw
Vancouver restaurant owner Duane McGaw has won an injunction in the Supreme Court of British Columbia against OffshoreAlert, the Florida publication that he says defamed him by calling him a con man. The injunction, handed down on January 19, 2016 orders the site to refrain from printing statements that link Mr. McGaw to his offshore investment fraud. It also orders the site's operator to pay damages in an amount that the court still must assess.

The order has zero effect however and OffshoreAlert entirely ignored the lawsuit. Its only response to the matter has been to put up a web page that it says will be a permanent entry detailing Mr. McGaw's crooked actions. The site's operator, David Marchant, has also made it clear that he will not comply with any of the demands from Mr. McGaw or his expert lawyer Mr. David Wotherspoon. "The information complained about will not be removed from our site and no apology will be forthcoming"

Defamation lawsuits in foreign countries are not enforceable in the US ... something lawyer David Wotherspoon is apparently ignorant of.


As an aside is this not yet ANOTHER stinging indictment of the dead crooked lawyertards ruling the Supreme Court in British Columbia? Take another bow useless as chit B.C. Law Society. I complained and got told to fuk right off, in the first week, as per usual.

There is ZERO doubt whatever that the OPEN criminal McGaw stole something around $ 10m (pounds), mostly from retirees, and saying this truth is defamatory in British Columbia and it will result in crooked scum using that stolen dough ALONG WITH TAXPAYER SUPPLIED FUNDS to sue.
I say again citizens. Its the B.C. taxpayer that pays the greatest freight for BCSC abuse. McGaw picked British Columbia to live for a reason. That reason is the province is chock full of crooks, most of them lawyers.

UNREAL is the size of the joke that is the administration of law in B.C.

Duane McGaw
"Duane McGaw was a principal of the onshore/offshore-based Argentum Capital Group, whose litigation funding scheme was exposed as a fraud by OffshoreAlert on February 18th, 2014, quickly causing its collapse. Investors were offered double-digit annual "fixed returns" as high as 15%, with both returns and principal purportedly "protected" by insurance policies and other financial safety nets to ensure payment even if funded lawsuits were unsuccessful. They were shown charts indicating that all 20 asset classes issued from April, 2010 to July, 2013 had achieved substantial total returns, ranging from 27% in 27 months to 89% in two years. It was all lies"
The Centaur/Buttonwood Litigation Funding Ponzi Scheme involved:

Buttonwood Legal Capital
Centaur Litigation
Orion Litigation
Argentum Investment Management.
Total Fund Amount : 90 Million GBP
Launch date of Investment: 2010, scheme was uncovered by OffShoreAlert report: March 2014
Payment to investors since Ponzi exposure: $0
More than £27 million of the £90 million raised from investors by the Cayman Islands-domiciled Centaur Group may have been misappropriated by insiders, according to the Joint Provisional Liquidators.

Duane McGaw
The "key beneficiaries" of "irregular transactions" from August, 2011 to March, 2014 were Scott Williams, Duane McGaw, and Brendan Terrill

Cop chief who once said legal pot was like murder now running pot company

Two former high-ranking police officers have launched a new company that connects patients with medical pot.

Former OPP commissioner, MP and federal Conservative cabinet minister Julian Fantino and former RCMP deputy commissioner Raf Souccar officially launched their new business on Tuesday. Both men spent decades battling illegal drug use in their law enforcement careers, with Fantino going as far as equating legalizing marijuana to legalizing murder while serving as Toronto's chief of police in 2004.
Fantino, who took a notoriously hard line against marijuana legalization in his past roles, and Souccar, who served as member of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's marijuana legalization task force, have faced some criticism for their new venture.

"We're not in the marijuana business. We're a health delivery system."

Houston Cop busted in elaborate Cocaine Sting

Houston patrol officer Julissa Guzman Diaz, 37, was accused of trying to steal a duffel bag with 8 kilos of cocaine during a traffic stop in an elaborate internal affairs sting. Diaz was arrested after pulling over a motorist, who was actually an undercover officer, swerving near Interstate 45. The undercover officer told Diaz that the car was not his, then he volunteered that there was cocaine in the car, but it was not his. Diaz rummaged through the car and would have seen an open black duffel bag with one kilo of cocaine and 7 kilos of staged cocaine. Diaz called a wrecker driver she knew. Diaz and the wrecker driver agreed to meet up to split the cocaine after she took the undercover officer to the city's sobering center. If convicted of the third-degree felony, she faces a maximum of 10 years in prison.

RCMP sergeant charged with stealing guns, growing equipment - absolute discharge

Former Lillooet RCMP Sgt. Darrell Robinson was given an absolute discharge in Lillooet Provincial Court after pleading guilty in June. Judge Mayland McKimm noted that Sgt. Robinson suffers from permanent Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Sgt. Darrell Robinson
A high-ranking Lillooet police officer made his first court appearance on allegations he stole two guns and grow-op equipment from an RCMP evidence locker. Sgt. Darrell Robinson is facing eight charges — four each of breach of trust by transferring an exhibit and theft.

He is accused of stealing two firearms and two pieces of marijuana-growing equipment — a generator and growing nutrients — that had been seized as police exhibits. It is believed some or all of the stolen exhibits had been ordered destroyed.

Police began investigating Robinson in February 2015, after an audit of the Lillooet detachment’s evidence lockup revealed improper processing and handling of exhibits. Robinson, 51, was suspended with pay. In addition to the criminal charges, he is also facing an RCMP internal investigation. Robinson is the second former member of the Lillooet detachment facing criminal charges in connection with items allegedly taken from the exhibit locker. Cst. Tony Lee was charged with one count of unauthorized possession of a firearm and two counts of theft after an internal audit and review last year.

Sgt. Darrell Robinson
Crown Counsel has approved eight charges against Sgt. Darrell Robinson while at the Lillooet RCMP. Robinson has been charged with four (4) counts relating to breach of trust by converting or transferring, without lawful authority, an exhibit contrary to Section 122 of the Criminal Code and another four (4) counts relating to theft of conversion contrary to Section 334(b) of the Criminal Code. The charges relate to four exhibits and incidents between May 2010 and July 2012.

He had been the officer in charge of the Lillooet RCMP detachment — the highest ranking Mountie in the community. Lillooet is located 170 kilometres west of Kamloops. Robinson is scheduled to make his first appearance in Lillooet Provincial Court on June 14, 2016.

Jesse James

Jesse Woodson James (September 5, 1847 – April 3, 1882) was an American outlaw, gang leader, bank robber, train robber, and murderer from the state of Missouri and the most famous member of the James-Younger Gang.

Already a celebrity when he was alive, he became a legendary figure of the Wild West after his death.

After the war Jessie and his brother Frank James became outlaws and established a gang that included Jessie James, Bob Younger, Cole Younger, James Younger, Bill Chadwell, Clell Miller and Charlie Pitts.
On 13th February, 1866, the gang robbed a bank at Liberty, Missouri. Over the next few years the brothers took part in twelve bank robberies, seven train robberies, four stage-coach robberies and various other crimes.

At least eleven citizens were killed by the gang. As well as their home state of Missouri they were also active in West Virginia, Alabama, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas and Minnesota.

William Stiles, alias Bill Chadwell, taken after his death. Shot directly through the heart by A. R. Manning during street fight, September 7, 1876
On September 7, 1876, the James-Younger gang attempted a raid on the First National Bank of Northfield, Minnesota. After this robbery and a manhunt, only Frank and Jesse James were left alive and uncaptured.

With his gang nearly annihilated, James trusted only the Ford brothers, Charley and Robert. On April 3, 1882, the Fords and James prepared to depart for another robbery. They went in and out of the house to ready the horses. As it was an unusually hot day, James removed his coat, then declared that he should remove his firearms as well, lest he look suspicious. Noticing a dusty picture on the wall, he stood on a chair to clean it. Bob Ford shot James in the back of the head.
The murder of Jesse James became a national sensation. The Fords made no attempt to hide their role. Indeed, Bob Ford wired the governor to claim his reward.

Crowds pressed into the little house in St. Joseph to see the dead bandit, even while the Ford brothers surrendered to the authorities but they were dismayed to find that they were charged with first degree murder. In the course of a single day, the Ford brothers were indicted, pleaded guilty, were sentenced to death by hanging, and two hours later were granted a full pardon by Governor Crittenden.
Bob Ford operated a tent saloon in Creede, Colorado. On June 8, 1892, a man named Edward O'Kelley, went to Creede, loaded a double barrel shotgun, entered Ford's saloon and said "Hello, Bob" before shooting Bob Ford in the throat, killing him instantly.

O'Kelley was sentenced to life in prison. O'Kelley's sentence was subsequently commuted because of a 7,000 signature petition in favor of his release. The governor pardoned him on October 3, 1902.
