Undeterred by fraud charges on which he is due to be tried in England next month, U.K. national Simon Hooper, who is part of an international gang of serial fraudsters previously exposed by OffshoreAlert, recently became a director of eight British firms.
Kijani Resources Limited, which is a key component of international investment frauds committed by Irishman David Cosgrove's and South African Cobus Kellermann's Belvedere Management Group, has gone into liquidation in Gibraltar.
Belvedere Management Group fund vehicle Brighton SPC, which was exposed as a fraud by OffshoreAlert 11 weeks ago, has been taken over by the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority following the completion of a "forensic examination" by the regulator.
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.
