SEC v. Ofer Abarbanel et al: Complaint

June 21, 2021 - Complaint alleging "a fraudulent investment scheme" in U. S. Securities and Exchange Commission v. Ofer Abarbanel, described as a citizen of Israel residing in California; Victor Chilelli, described as a resident of Delaware, and Income Collecting 1-3 Months T-Bills Mutual Fund,  described as "a mutual fund registered in the Cayman Islands", as Defendants, and Institutional Syndication LLC, North American Liquidity Resources LLC, Institutional Secured Credit LLC, Growth Income Holdings LLC, and Global EMEA Holdings LLC, as Relief Defendants, at the U. S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. Editor's Note: In the complaint, the SEC alleged that "Abarbanel and Chilelli arranged for friends (including a friend's wife) and nominee personnel in the Bahamas and British Virgin Islands to serve as directors of the Fund". Research by OffshoreAlert at the Cayman Islands General Registry showed that the directors of Income Collecting 1-3 Months T-Bills Mutual Fund are Boisy Roberts, of the Bahamas, and "Trevo Liburd", of the British Virgin Islands, which appears to be a typo and a reference to Trevor Liburd.

Cayman Court Secrecy: A Huge Red Flag for Foreign Investors & Clients
David Marchant
As any fule kno, the biggest enemy of fraud, corruption, money laundering, and other forms of financial crime is transparency, while their best friend is secrecy. That's why the unprecedented mass sealing of cases that's taking place at the Financial Services Division of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands is repugnant to anyone with a genuine concern for financial crime.
