The fire report is archived at http://www.TedMaher.com, the site Mike has maintained continuously.
As he indicated, the fire report states the sudden conflagration occured when Ted was in the hospital;
The report mentions three times that the "sudden conflagration" occured at 6 a.m.
Ted was rushed to Princess Grace Memorial Hospital an hour earlier, to receive one hundred staples and numerous transfusions.
The fire report references multiple points of ignition in the penthouse on the sixth floor never ascribed to Ted.
Ted has never been permitted to speak of the night in question after the extorted false confession.
The mere mention of it during his one phone call a week would result in immediate disconnection.
His mail has been blocked, and his use of a laptop has been denied--though all other prisoners have that privilege.
He has not been allowed private meetings with visitors, and two priests have been expelled for becoming sympathetic to his case.
When DatelineNBC's Sara James was in Monaco taping "Who Killed the Billionaire?" (air date November 21, 2000; transcript archived at Mike's site for Ted http://www.TedMaher.com, she tried--
She ran after a black sedan carrying Ted as it sped into a garage and the door came down behind it shouting, "Ted?!"--such freedom of the press in Monaco.
Vivian's autopsy noted the total infusion of blood in her thyroid, which in conjunction with the combat bruising indicates she was strangled.
Edmond's blood spattered her panties, bra and barette/nursing cap, and his DNA was under her fingernails.
Edmond had unidentified male DNA under his fingernails.
Monaco prosecutor Serdet has never been one to let facts get in the way of a hypothesis, witness his blithe dismissal of the negative tox screen on Ted by Princess Grace Memorial.
There is no chain of evidence to establish that Edmond and Vivian alone were in the dressing room, Room 608 in the fire report.
There are no cell phone records introduced into evidence, only the contradictory testimony of Lily's paid agent Sonia.
The police could not produce the tape of their emergency calls for that night when requested by the investigating magistrate;
That tape alone had mysteriously vanished.
The fairy tale that Edmond strangled Vivian is too much to swallow. He was in the declining stages of Parkinson's; she was fit and active.
That there was a struggle over a locked door is also demonstrably false: locksmiths testifed the door was not locked.
By suppressing the penthouse security video tapes, the police emergency call tape, the cell phone records, and Ted Maher's freedom to speak, Monaco has been able to create a substitute reality.
Yet Monaco had to go to the extreme--and universally illegal--step of continuous sleep-deprivation;
It continued to awaken Ted every twenty to forty minutes to destroy his rest, and produce the state of confusion and the dark, sunken eyes.
Lily's Stanley Arkin defended Natasha Kagalovsky, wife of Konstantin Kagalovsky of Russia's Menatep Bank.
Natasha was involved in the Bank of New York (BONY) money-laundering scandal.
The chief prosecutor of Geneva said at the time of Safra's death that he was killed for cooperating with the FBI regarding the laundering of $4.8 billion in IMF loans to Russia through Republic.
The disposition of that $4.8 billion remains an ongoing investigation:
Swiss prosecutors investigating the misappropriation of $ 4.8 billion lent to Russia by the International Monetary Fund during the financial meltdown of 1998 have met resistance from the fund, which has denied them access to information crucial to their inquiry, the Financial Times reported. Swiss investigating judge Laurent Kasper-Ansermet has asserted that he has obtained testimony of IMF money transfers between the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the Russian central bank and several other Russian banks being diverted "to benefit third parties" via Switzerland, and that these funds "were not used to serve the goals of the IMF." However, according to Kasper-Ansermet, the IMF has ignored his request for a list of Russian banks which had received portions of the 1998 loan.
While Monaco authorities can't even transfer the money Ted's wife wires him for toiletries.
