Pilatus Bank Ali Sadr Hashemi
 Last week US law enforcement again busted another Iranian named Ali Sadr Hashemi Nejad on charges of evading US economic sanctions against Iran. Ali Sadr Hashemi Nejad is the chairman and owner of Maltese-registered Pilatus Bank. He  was arrested in Dulles Virginia on U.S. charges that he participated in a scheme to evade U.S. sanctions and allegedly laundered  more than $115 million under the guise of a Venezuelan construction contracts. According to the US prosecutors the money laundering activities were funneled through the US financial system. As alleged the Ali Sadr Hashemi Nejad also created a network of fake companies and foreign bank accounts to distort business arrangements in Venezuela that were instituted strictly to evade US sanctions.

Although the indictment states that Ali Sadr Hashemi Nejad is the owner of Malta based Pilatus Bank. It must be noted that the charges brought against Sadr Hashemi Nejad does not relate to the Pilatus bank. It is no secrete though that the Pilatus bank in and of itself has been embroiled in various controversies and has been accused of money laundering.
In November of 2017 Member of the European Parliament (MEP) David Casa presented the European Central Bank (ECB) with additional evidence of Pilatus Bank’s Anti-Money Laundering (AML) violations. In Mr. Casa’s letter to the ECB’s Supervisory Board he stated that “the information he received was that Pilatus Bank was not just violating ant-money laundering regulations but that the bank had been set up specifically for money laundering purposes”. We will get back to this letter by MEP David Casa. 

Pilatus Bank was in litigation with the Maltese journalist, Daphne Caruana Galizia, who was assassinated in October of 2017 allegedly after she wrote several articles some accusing Pilatus Bank and its operation of facilitating corrupt political activities in Malta and money laundering.

Immediately following the arrest of Ali Sadr Hashemi Nejad ,chairman and owner of Pilatus Bank, the Malta Financial Services Authority ordered the removal of Ali Sadr Ali Sadr Hashemi Nejad from his position in the bank. The bank was directed not to dispose or perform any kind of transfer deals with client’s assets and forbids any banking transactions by the bank’s shareholders, board members and senior management officials.
We note with keen interest that one of the head honchos and the CEO of the Pilatus bank Hamid Reza Ghanbari happens to be an Iranian who for convenient and seemingly business reasons identifies himself as a Dominican. To avert the deception by the DLP spin cartel we want to emphasize that Mr. Hamid Reza Ghanbari carries a passport from the Commonwealth Of Dominica and not The Dominican Republic .
Back to the letter from MEP David Casato the European Central Bank

In his letter of concern and warning to the European Central Bank (ECB),  (MEP) David Casa took particular interest in emphasizing that the owner of the Pilatus bank Ali Sadr Ali Sadr Hashemi Nejad owns a passport from St Kitts and Nevis and that CEO of the same Pilatus Bank Hamid Reza Ghanbari owns a Dominica Passport.
One can reasonably conclude that  MEP David Casa felt that it was very critical to bring attention to the fact that the Iranian men carry passports from St Kitts and Dominica not as genuine islanders but as part of the alleged suspicious financial activities. In addition the MEP also thought it was imperative to highlight the means by which the passports from St Kitts and Dominica were acquired. According to the MEP “Dominica passports are openly available for sale from a variety of agents.” 
Hamid Reza Ghanbari

The curious mind must now wonder why it is that in one way or another, directly or indirectly that Dominica seems to appear regularly on the international stage of crime and money laundering. It is no longer a secret or maybe universal  knowledge that Iranian and Dominica’s diplomatic passport holder Alireza Monfared had been busted for evading US and UN sanctions against Iran even while he was given a safe hiding place in Dominica by the Roosevelt Skerrit administration.

All we know at this juncture is that Ali Sadr Hashemi Nejad and Hamid Reza Ghanbari are allegedly associated directly or indirectly with operations involving money laundering and evasion of US and UN economic sanctions against Iran however we remain particularly curious about the fact that official documents show that Mr. Hamid Reza Ghanbari obtained his Dominican passport at around the same time that Alireza Monfared received his Dominica passport. Is that by chance ?
Salisbury Iranian Ali Twaka Norm ki led 
We expect the usual spin, propaganda and distraction from the likes of Tony Astaphan and the Salisbury Iranian Ali twaka Norm-ki led, aka Clarence Christian. All we are asking is that the people of Dominica engage in basic and honest curiosity as oppose to the recurring DLP deception. Is it just coincidence or “Malere” that right within the fray of another international money laundering and sanction busting scheme that Dominica’s name is hanging in the background or is it just that Roosevelt Skerrit and his cabal are just too darn dirty and corrupt?
