Public Warning by the Swiss Financial Market Supervision Authority regarding BlackLight SA, which is suspected of “conducting unauthorized activities in the financial market”. Editor’s Note: Research by OffshoreAlert showed that, in the Swiss Commercial Register, the management of BlackLight SA was identified as Kenneth Ciapala and Anthony Killarney, who appear to be citizens of the United Kingdom. Ciapala and BlackLight SA were criminally indicted for alleged securities fraud and money laundering at federal court in Manhattan on December 5, 2019 and were also both accused of securities fraud in two separate complaints filed at the same court by the U. S. Securities and Exchange Commission on January 2, 2020. In one of the actions, Killarney was one of several co-defendants. All three cases are ongoing.
