Two more investment firms - Caldora International Fund and Caldora Asset Management - have had their licenses revoked in Mauritius as regulators continue to dismantle David Cosgrove's Belvedere Management Group, which was exposed as a global financial criminal enterprise by OffshoreAlert in 2015.
The Mauritius Financial Services Commission yesterday took action against three more companies - Belvedere Fund Manager Limited, Rejuvenation PCC Limited and Theseus Property Fund Ltd. - that are part of the Belvedere Management Group, which was exposed as a global criminal financial enterprise last year by OffshoreAlert.
Seventeen months after being exposed as a serial fraudster by OffshoreAlert, Irishman David Cosgrove has been banned from serving as a corporate officer in Mauritius, while fellow director Francess Henriette was also banned and Belvedere Management Limited has its management license revoked.

More than one-third of the nearly €200 million of assets reported by one of Belvedere Management Group's offshore fund vehicles in 2013 was doubtful, according to auditor BDO (Mauritius).
One day after new directors were appointed to 'ensure' that Cayman-domiciled Brighton SPC would be operated legally, the Fund illegally acquired a Gibraltar firm with bogus assets of $125 million, OffshoreAlert can reveal. The transfer allowed Belvedere and its accomplices in Britain, Dubai, Gibraltar, Spain and elsewhere to continue securities frauds involving firms listed on stock exchanges in Denmark, England and Germany.
