A BRITISH gangland figure known as ‘Goldfinger’ was shot dead, Essex police confirmed as they opened a murder investigation on July 1. John Palmer acquired his nickname when he was accused of involvement in the 1983 Brink’s-MAT gold bullion robbery, and although he was cleared the name has stuck.
Palmer’s body was discovered on June 24 at an address in Brentwood, Essex, and now police have said he died after being shot in the chest.
The 64-year-old was jailed in 2001 for masterminding a massive timeshare fraud, which accumulated £300 million from holidaymakers whose hopes were dashed. Just a month ago, he was charged with similar crimes in Spain, ranging from fraud, firearm possession and money laundering. He had been on bail for eight years, having been arrested in Tenerife in July 2007.
Essex police are now looking to speak to anyone who saw anything suspicious in the South Weald area of Brentwood, or who was around Sandpit Lane between 4pm and 6pm, on Wednesday June 24.

Portuguese prosecutors said on Thursday they plan to charge former interior minister Miguel Macedo for his role in a money-laundering scandal linked to “golden” visas, which handed residency permits to wealthy foreigners.

The announcement came shortly after Portugal’s National Assembly decided to lift the parliamentary immunity Macedo enjoyed as a member of the centre-right government so he could be fully investigated for his role in the scandal.

“The prosecution has called for his immunity to be lifted so he can be indicted,” a spokesman for the state prosecutor told AFP without giving more details.

Macedo resigned in November after 11 people were arrested, including several senior officials suspected of artificially inflating the value of investments to help foreigners gain a special residence permit.

At the time, he disavowed any personal responsibility in the affair, but said the allegations had undermined his political credibility.

The “golden” visas scandal were the latest corruption bombshell to rock Portugal’s political elite, and came days after former prime minister Jose Socrates was arrested on suspicion of tax evasion and money laundering.

Cash-strapped Portugal in October 2012 started offering “golden” visas to wealthy foreigners willing to invest 500,000 euros ($550,000) in property, make a capital transfer of one million euros or create 10 jobs.

The High Court in England has ruled that a Maltese-British national defrauded a company of almost €16 million, The Sunday Times of Malta has learnt.

Paul Sultana, 47, a UK-born son of a Maltese national, was one of the people behind a large-scale scam through which a British company was defrauded.

He bluffed about his connections to the financial markets in Malta and his strong contacts with the Vatican and fooled the company into believing he could multiply their investment in a short period of time.

“I am quite satisfied that Paul Sultana was a knowing participant in the fraud”.

The case came to light through a civil suit instituted by Group Seven Ltd, a subsidiary of Allseas Group SA, a Swiss company specialising in oil and gas exploration, against Allied Investment Cor­poration Ltd (AIC), a company incorporated in Malta, its Polish director Marek Rejniak and Mr Sultana.

The court heard how in 2011, Mr Sultana and Mr Rejniak began representations with Allseas’ president, its legal counsel and director and the treasurer on a big investment opportunity. This eventually saw Allseas advancing €100 million to AIC in October 2011.

The money was transferred from an Allseas Bank of Valletta account to an account held by AIC in Malta.

The profits were intended to be invested in an ambitious project the company had been developing: the construction of a super catamaran-type ship which would be able to sail up to oil rigs, lift them out of the water on to the body of the ship and repair them on site. The project was estimated to cost some €1.3 billion. It was suggested to them that the €100 million investment could, over a period of 13 months, procure the money needed for the project.

The company was enticed and a director met Mr Rejniak and Mr Sultana in Malta in July 2011. Mr Rejniak was introduced as the person who could procure such a large return.

Some of the €100 million was transferred between various accounts during the dealings, with €15.9 million going missing after they were used to pay the fraudsters before the fraud was discovered.

In court, Mr Sultana admitted that representations were made to induce Allseas to hand over the €100 million but that such representations were made by AIC and Mr Rejniak. Mr Sultana’s defence was that he too had been deceived.

The court, however, said Mr Sultana was a “patently dishonest individual” who was “not a fool… but a knave” and who was “a persuasive and clever talker”.

In a 100-page judgment, Mr Justice Peter Smith remarked how Mr Sultana knew how to sell himself, saying, among other things, that his uncle was the Pope’s secretary, that the Vatican was sometimes involved in these kinds of investments and that he was well connected in the Maltese financial sector.

The court also concluded that Mr Sultana had, on three separate occasions, forged documents to sustain the scam.

Although Allseas’ directors were found responsible for the fact that their company had fallen victim of this fraud, the court said it could not understand how they had “failed to spot the obvious”.

“I am quite satisfied that Mr Sultana was a knowing participant in the fraud. By the time he was drawn into the Allseas scam in March 2011, he knew the whole operation was bogus,” Mr Justice Smith said as he found Mr Sultana jointly responsible for the fraud, rendering him liable to repay the missing €15.9 million.

The case was decided by the English court according to Maltese law since part of the deal was transacted and negotiated in Malta.

The court also involved Maltese legal experts on aspects of local legislation.
