Mining tycoon to sue George Soros and Global Witness
Simandou: whos conspiring against who? Israeli billionaire, Beny Steinmetz is set to sue George Soros, the hedge fund tycoon and renowned philanthropist, and anti-corruption campaigner group, Global Witness, reports Britains Sunday Times. The case involves mining rights to the largest untapped iron ore deposits in the world located in Simandou region of Guinea. There are said to be several hundreds of billions of dollars of ore in Simandou. Rio Tinto had originally been awarded the rights to exploit the deposits but the former president of Guinea took the rights off the mining giant and awarded them to Mr Steinmetzs company,
BSG Resources. Now the new president of Guinea who was elected on an anti-corruption ticket has removed the rights from BSG Resources after setting up a commission to look into the deal. The commission claimed to have found gross irregularities in the way BSG was granted the rights. BSG claims it was part of a conspiracy coordinated by Global Witness and George Soros.
But much of the evidence came from the FBI not Global Witness. In a sting operation, the FBI recorded Frederic Cilins, someone claiming to represent Steinmetz. Cilins allegedly offered Mamadie Toure, the wife the former leader of Guinea, millions of dollars if she handed over documents which are alleged to have incriminated Steinmetz. Cilins has pleaded guilty.
Steinmetzs company is based in Guernsey but are controlled by trusts set up in Liechtenstein. Steinmetz himself lives in Switzerland. This is a high stakes game, but one thing is for sure: The lawyers are going to win big.
Is the FBI doing Soros’ bidding too? Dayum, it pays to buy a president!
I hope Beny subpoenas Soros’ financial records. Ha!
Why is the FBI having anything to do with an Israeli company’s contract for mining in Guinea?
They misspelled 'seditionist'.
Well he sure 'helped' relieve many Jews of their burdensome possessions before they were marched off to the death camps...
The Soros Group uses the NGO’s they support to create their business conditions.
Look at Libya, for example, and WHO got all those lucrative oil and gas contracts, or how Soros’s investment in Petrobras took off after Obama “granted” them billions in taxpayer-assured loans just after he was elected.
Peter Omidyar now has the same kind of a network, that buys Journos, mostly, and often works in concert with the Soros GroupNGO’s. Where Soros buys Pols, Omidyar buys Journalists. It makes a potent combination, and you don’t have to look any farther than Ukraine for the proof.
It’s a big game, and we don’t have a seat at the table, folks.
I don’t think the FBI’s the respectable group they once were...
I’m not saying anyone should shoot George Soros but if anyone did I’d be happy to bake them a pie!
Extreme doubt obtains, in *my* mind, that they ever *were* all that respectable to begin with...
