Business Standard ^ | April 6, 2014 | Reuters

A Dutch former top banker who came under fire for taking a large pay-off after the nationalisation of his troubled bank was found dead along with his wife and daughter on Saturday in what police called a family tragedy.

Jan Peter Schmittmann, 57, ran the domestic operations of Dutch bank ABN Amro between 2003 and 2007 and was widely criticised for landing an 8 million euro pay-off after the bank's collapse and subsequent nationalisation.

What a poorly written story. There’s hardly a scintilla of information. “Family tragedy” could mean anything. Losing a child to a car accident can be described the same way as having somebody walk in with a Mac and hose the place down with 9mm. Both would be a “family tragedy.”

He, his wife and one of his daughters were found dead in their home, apparently killed by shotgun blasts - he supposedly killed them and then killed himself. One of the other daughters found them.

A 22 year old ‘child’ could know things about the banking ‘system’ to which her father was pledged which the global masters would not want spoken to the press, so she was included in the ‘family tragedy’. The older daughter about to do an internship in India should be very very cautious ...

Modern banking is a criminal activity allied with big government through the “independent” Federal Reserve. When you have an international organized syndicate involved in money laundering, predatory lending, printing money from nothing, bribing of politicians through “campaign contributions”, and flagrant theft (rampant speculation in rigged markets using the retirement savings of average working people) it is natural the greedy predators will move to even darker activities such as extortion and murder.

The banking cartel, colluding with big government, created the conditions leading to the 2008 financial crisis and profited tremendously from the speculative bubble as well was the risky mortgage practices. Thanks to Wall Street’s bankrolling of both political parties, the government’s primary objective in managing the aftermath of the crisis was to save the “too big to fail banks” and not the life savings of the American people. Hence Goldman Sach, Bank of America, Citigroup, and JP Morgan went from insolvency at the end of 2008 to paying massive bonuses to the same entrenched executives who created the mess by 2010. Not to mention Jon Corzine’s blatant theft of billions of dollars from customers of MF Global with no prosecution. Worst of all the Federal Reserve loaned billions to foreign banks and countries, during and after the crisis, while deliberately moving interest rates to zero thereby destroying the return on savings of the average American.

Andrew Jackson feared the power of banking syndicates and successfully fought to destroy the Second Bank of the United States, which was the Federal Reserve of its time. Until the big banks and investment firms are broken up, and control of the nation’s currency and economic capital is removed from the New York banking cartel, this nation cannot be free.

The time to shut down the Federal Reserve and break up the banking cartel is now.

I wonder how long it will be until the Obama administration, in light of the continual revelations of bank fraud, tries to sell us on Sharia finance. Of course, the proposal will be dressed up in sheep's clothing.

He is, but only under ‘working theories’ until we have a name.

How fortuitous. No ballistics, can't tell who really did the shooting.

Maybe. On the other hand, he was under a lot of pressure because there was a demand to actually see the reserves, and apparently they were severely undercapitalized.

So it could well have been a murder-suicide.
