Iceland: Int’l Arrest Warrant Against Top Bank Official
by Lowana Veal (reykjavik)Wednesday, May 12, 2010
Inter Press Service
Vigorously pursuing those allegedly responsible for Iceland’s 2008 financial crisis, investigators have got issued an international arrest warrant against Sigurdur Einarsson, chairman of the board of governors of the failed Kaupthing Bank.
An Interpol notice on Tuesday said Einarsson was wanted on charges of counterfeiting, forgery and fraud.
Einarsson, who lives in London, was said to be reluctant to come to Reykjavik for fear of being arrested and Icelandic authorities have refused to offer any assurances.
Yet another day of Iceland banking arrests
Posted on11 May 2010.
Ingolfur Helgason, the former Director of Kaupthing Iceland, and Steingrimur Karason, former CEO of the bank’s risk management department, were both arrested today upon arriving back in Iceland. They went straight to interrogation with the Special Prosecutor and are being held in police cells.
Bankers jailed, sued as Iceland seeks culprits for crisis
Since Iceland’s three largest banks — Kaupthing, Landsbanki and Glitnir — collapsed in late 2008, their former executives and owners have largely been living untroubled lives abroad.
But the publication last month of a parliamentary inquiry into the island nation’s profound financial and economic crisis signaled a turning of the tide, laying much of the blame for the downfall on the former bank heads who had taken “inappropriate loans from the banks” they worked for.
On Wednesday, the administrators of Glitnir’s liquidation announced they had filed a two-billion-dollar (1.6-billion-euro) lawsuit in a New York court against former large shareholders and executives for alleged fraud.
GREEKS START INVESTIGATING GOLDMAN SACHS ,….OTHERS LOOK TO FOLLOW
‘Vampire Squid’ Goldman Sachs confesses it is being investigated for helping Greece hide its debts
Goldman Sachs has admitted that it is under investigation for helping Greece to hide its vast debts.
The controversial Wall Street bank – nicknamed the Vampire Squid because its tentacles stretch far and wide – is accused of having profiteered out of a complex currency deal that helped Greece massage its finances.
In a regulatory filing in the U.S., Goldman disclosed that is ‘subject to a number of investigations and reviews by various governmental and regulatory authorities’ in connection with its financial transactions with Greece.
The European Commission has already been probing the bank’s relationship with Athens. It is unclear from the disclosure, how many other countries might be looking into its dealings with the Mediterranean state.
The Wall Street giant is claimed to have received as much as £192m in fees by entering a complex currency transaction in 2001 that helped Athens borrow cash without putting it on the books as a loan.
The so-called ‘swap’ deal helped Greece meet eurozone limits on government borrowing.

IS THE DEBT A FRAUD?
Greek Bondholders “Fooled” or Goldman Sachs Committing Fraud?
Today, she questions why Bloomberg prefers to only discuss the Goldman Sachs-Greece cross currency swaps subterfuge as a sort of foolishness, rather than taking a much more serious tone.
Smith takes Bloomberg to task for using “fooled” when “more obvious F-words, like ‘Fraud’ (as in defrauded) or ‘fleeced’” should have been considered. Then, she digs into her banking experience to relate how to her it seems nearly impossible that Goldman wouldn’t know the nature and extent of the Greek swaps contracts when the bond offering was issued.
Eight banks are facing a US investigation into the rating of their mortgage products, the BBC understands.
New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo is looking at whether the relationship between the banks and credit rating agencies was manipulated to gain a better ratings for risky securities.
The banks under investigation are believed to include Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley.
Bad US mortgage debt was one of the main causes of the financial crisis.
This is because much of the investments were repackaged into wider debt offerings and then resold around the world.
ECUADOR DECLARED ITS DEBT FRAUD AND ILLEGAL AND DEFAULTED
In November 2008, Ecuador became the first country to undertake an examination of the legitimacy and structure of its foreign debt. An independent debt audit commissioned by the government of Ecuador documented hundreds of allegations of irregularity, illegality, and illegitimacy in contracts of debt to predatory international lenders. The loans, according to the report, violated Ecuador’s domestic laws, US Securities and Exchange Commission regulations, and general principles of international law. Ecuador’s use of legitimacy as a legal argument for defaulting set a major precedent; indeed, the formation of a debt auditing commission sets a precedent.

Fractional Reserve Banking System Basis of Bankster Fraud
Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009
Oct 10, 2009 – 02:52 PM
The heart of the modern monetary system is fractional reserve banking. This system is based on fraud. At the very heart of the modern economy is fraud – fraud on a gigantic scale.
What is the nature of this fraud? Counterfeiting. Banks are government-licensed institutions that issue bogus IOUs. Because these IOUs function as money, they are counterfeit money. This is the heart, mind, and soul of all modern banking
Bradford & Bingley Nationalised Another UK Bank Wiped Out by Tulip Backed Securities
The reason why the banks are going bust in simple terms is:
The banks traded in complex derivatives products between themselves, in what is termed as the over the counter market. The exposure to the Securitized debt packages was further exaggerated by the use of leverage of in many cases more than 30X the banks assets against valuations based on complex models that inflated the packages values during the boom times which allowed huge profits and bonuses to be banked (Fraud?). However the critical point is in the final link in a long chain of sliced and diced debt packages was the US housing market.
THE GREEKS DO NOT WANT TO PAY THIS DEBT .THEY ARE NOT LEGALLY OR MORALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS DEBT.IF THE DEBT IS ILLEGAL THEN ,THEY ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR IT. ITS THIER GOVERNMENT(ELECTED DICTATORS) THAT IS SELLING THEM INTO DEBT SLAVERY!!!
Greek demonstrators say “Plutocracy should pay for the crisis”
Thousands of Greeks have taken to the streets to show their rejection of the government’s proposed austerity measures, which are supposed to right the country’s flailing economy.
So they’re wondering how the country managed to amount 300 billion euros of debt – what was that money spent on? Certainly not, they say, on public services or roads. The protestors have the impression that politicians robbed the country blind. With the former government, there was a corruption scandal every two months. So talk of wasted money is still rife. The former health minister ordered 16 million doses of the H1N1 flu vaccine, but only 400,000 were needed in the end.
I saw the slogan ‘plutocracy should pay for the crisis’ – which pretty much sums up the feelings of the protestors.”
WHY ARE WE NOT DOING THIS??

The Ulterior Motive Behind the Greek Bailout
Politics / Global Debt Crisis
May 04, 2010 – 07:37 AM
So who are they protecting, the answer is simple; the bond holders. Roughly, 80% of this debt is foreign owned and a large portion of this is held by German and French Citizens. Bottom line this rescue package is not for Greece, but it’s a rescue for Greek bond holders worldwide. If Greece were to default tomorrow, it would not disappear, but its debt holders would be seriously hurt. Thus behind all this noise one must understand that the main reason for the bailout is to protect the bondholders; the exact same story unfolded in the US, the only difference being that it was a bailout of the banking industry. As the Germans and French hold a very large percentage of these bonds, it is actually a bailout of Germany and France and not really Greece. They should let Greece’s default but they will not.
ARGENTINA DEFAULTED ON ITS DEBT IN 2001 ,ITS DOING BETTER THAN EVER TODAY
Even though Argentina defaulted on its debt, it is still around. Yes it did pay the price initially by being shut out of the global capital markets for years, but it did not vanish and only its foreign debt holders lost.
ARGENTINA’S SOLUTION DIRECT DEMOCRACY AND LIBERTARIAN IDEALS FREES THE ARGENTINE PEOPLE OF DEBT
After the non-violent collapse of the Argentinean government in 2001/2002, the social and economic organization of Argentina has undergone major changes, though how important these changes are remains to be seen. Worker occupations of factories and popular assemblies have both been seen functioning in Argentina, and both are the kind of action endorsed by anarchists: the first is a case of direct action and the latter a case of direct democracy. Approximately 200 “recovered” factories (fábricas recuperadas) are now self-managed and collectively owned by workers. In the large majority of them, pay is completely egalitarian; generally no professional managers are employed, or managers are collectively controlled in the other cases. These co-operatives have organised themselves into networks. Solidarity and support from external groups such as neighborhood assemblies and unemployed (piquetero) groups have often been important for the survival of these factories. Similar developments have taken place in Brazil and Uruguay. In 2004, Avi Lewis and Naomi Klein (author of No Logo) released the documentary The Take, which is about these events.
WE HAVE BEEN HERE BEFORE , PLEASE TAKE ANDREW JACKSONS ADVICE!
“Never take counsel of your fears.”
The Jacksonians opposed government granted monopolies to banks, especially the national bank, which was a central bank known as the Second Bank of the United States. Jackson fought to end the government monopoly to the Bank and got great opposition from Nicholas Biddle, the bank chairman. Biddle first dismissed Jackson efforts, but as the initiative gained popular support, he got more concerned. There was an attempt to murder Jackson at that time but the pistols failed. Jackson would later claim that he had proof the bankers were behind this attempt. Jackson was able to gain popular support because the Bank money manipulations and inflation had created a big recession, and it had inflated land prices, benefiting big land owners and stopping economical development. In a last attempt to stop Jackson, Biddle burst the bubble his inflationary policies had created, and brought about a deflationary correction. This put pressure on Jackson, but after a year of recession, the economy was clean by the deflationary correction, and the Bank was out of “ammunition”. Jackson had won the battle. The Bank continued his operations as a state bank, but had to close years after. Once retired, everytime Jackson was asked what was his biggest achievement as president he answered: “I killed the Bank”.
ANDREW JACKSON was the ONE president that CLEARED AMERICAN DEBT ,when faced with financial ruin How did he manage it?
“The Bank is trying to kill me, but I shall kill it!”
ANDREW JACKSONS VIEW OF THE BANKS….NO BAILOUT.
“You are a nest of vipers and thieves, and by the grace of the almighty God, I will root you out!”
ANDREW JACKSON’S VIEW ON CORPORATIONS
Corporations have neither bodies to kick nor souls to damn.
ANDREW JACKSONS VIEW ON THE BRIGHTEST AND THE BEST
Hemans gallows ought to be the fate of all such ambitious men who would involve their country in civil wars, and all the evils in its train that they might reign & ride on its whirlwinds & direct the Storm– The free people of these United States have spoken, and consigned these wicked demagogues to their proper doom.
NO BAILOUT ,ARREST CRIMINAL BANKERS AND POLITIONS.
