Notice the name Paul J. Mousel? He tracks* directly to the Vatican’s Ambrosiano Group.

*Source: Open Corporates cross-index.

That link also allows us to track other Vatican shell companies ( Such as BAA (Banco Ambrosiano Andino) and a number of others) through which profits were traveling back to the Vatican – profits that apparently involved all sorts of nasty things such as money-laundering of drugs-for-arms, etc.

But, first let’s see who all these directors were.

ALLEN G. PAISLEY – Records indicate he is British-born (Romford, 1952) making him only about 24 at the time of becoming a ‘director’ of Banco Ambrosiano Group. So, we have this young lawyer fresh out of law school, who suddenly becomes involved in helping form one of the most scandalous front groups of the Vatican banking schemes? Sounds ‘groomed’ to me at best, or a totally gullible mark or dupe at worst.

BRIAN A. SMOUHA

Brian appears to have been one of the more experienced of the bunch. Sourcewatch tells us:

Brian Smouha “is a qualified accountant who was a partner in Deloitte & Touche from 1970 until his retirement in 2001. During that time he established the specialist financial institutions group, led the liquidation of BCCI, and from 1997 to 2001 led the Deloitte & Touche audit of the World Bank. Brian is on the Board of the Barclays Private Bank and The Board of British Maritime Technology. He was the founding and sole chair of GuideStar UK and now sits on the Board of GuideStar International. He is also a trustee of The Institute for Philanthropy.” [1] Trustee, Bulldog Trust, Treasurer, Institute for Jewish Policy Research, Former Advisor, American Center for Democracy

Note: Lest it escape your notice, please take a moment to observe the fact that even at this early stage in my research here, it is clearly apparent that Banco Ambrosiano Group is providing a backdoor into the perfect template of what I spotted long ago – that the ‘Big 3’ (of what we call the slavemasters) were all in on the corruption of humanity together. The Vatican, the British Nobility and the American sycophants of both. Thomas Jefferson’s epithet of Hostis Humani Generis – the Enemy of the Human Race – could not have been more accurate in describing them.

Please also pay attention to the fact that none of the bio’s on these people mention their very nasty involvement of theirs in this Vatican banking ring – not even in a sanitized way.

Brian went to a British school called Magdalene College Cambridge. Sir Thomas Pope, one of the chief executors in its establishment history, was an ardent Catholic. Brian graduated in 1959, listed as a donor for 2014/2015.

Donors party –

Brian was involved in supposedly helping with the investigation into another bank in this ring – called BCCI – that was linked to narcotics smuggling and financing terrorism (all part and parcel of Operation Gladio operations). There is a report on this investigation titled: BCCI* Hearings before the Terrorism, Narcotics, and International Operations of the Committee on Foreign Relations available at the Internet Archive.

*BCCI – The Bank of Credit and Commerce International, registered in Luxembourg by a Pakistani financier in 1972.

The Subcommittee investigation of BCCI began in February 1988, early in the second year of a 2-year investigation of the relationship between drug trafficking to U.S. foreign policy and law enforcement. During a hearing on General Noriega’s drug trafficking and money laundering, BCCI was identified as facilitating Noriega’s criminal activity.

In March 1988, the full Foreign Relations Committee authorized the issuance of subpoenas to BCCI and those at the bank involved in handling Noriega’s assets, and the accounts of others in Panama and Colombia.1

Considering that no one seems to know about Smouha’s direct involvement in the Banco Ambrosiano Group, that becomes a bit like the fox investigating fox raids on the chickens.

This is usually done, an insider assigned to an ‘investigation’ (an insider people don’t know is one), in order to make sure that nothing is found as to the real perpetrators. Or, if it looks like it even might be heading in the right direction, appropriate actions/deceptions can be orchestrated.

That’s pretty much what happened in the BCCI investigation By Senator John Kerry between 1988 and 1992. Check out this description of Smouha’s role –

Shortly after BCCI’s closure, liquidators were appointed by the District Court of Luxembourg, where BCCI was incorporated, to
handle the winding up of BCCI and the recovery of the maximum possible amount of assets for distribution to innocent depositors and creditors of BCCI worldwide. The mandate of BCCI’s liquidators was to recover funds, not necessarily to aid in investigations of BCCI. As chief liquidator Brian Smouha testified:

[O]ur responsibility is to use the resources in the liquidation estates to maximize recoveries to be made available to credi
tors and depositors. [A]s far as we are able consistent with that responsibility, we endeavor to cooperate with numerous investigative authorities in a number of countries. [emphasis added]

Thus, to whatever extent investigative efforts might threaten to reduce the recovery of funds for BCCI’s depositors, BCCI’s liquidators have a responsibility under the terms of their appointment to sacrifice the investigation and uncovering the truth about what happened to the goal of maximizing funds to return to the creditors.1

That’s pretty much exactly what happened.

The CIA stonewalled the Committee for more than a year, as did BCCI and Smouha apparently, to try and prevent the complicity of William Casey, Adnan Khashoggi (NOC agent Miles Copeland’s asset) in arms and drug-trafficking profits money-laundering – and a whole host of other crimes – from coming out.

.

For many months, the CIA resisted providing information to the Subcommittee about its involvement with and knowledge of BCCI.

…there remains a wide disparity between the CIA’s official account of critical relationships between BCCI and persons associated with the CIA, and the information available from other sources, including BCCI’s own records, as specified at length below.

One is left with the choice of accepting the official record, which requires an assessment that the other contacts between BCCI and U.S. intelligence figures and operations are coincidental, or of assuming that the full story of BCCI’s relationship to the United States has been intentionally veiled by critical players on both sides of that relationship.

.And what was that criminality that the CIA was involved with and trying so hard to keep hidden?

.

BCCI’s criminality included fraud by BCCI and BCCI customers involving billions of dollars; money laundering in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas; BCCI’s bribery of officials in most of those locations; support of terrorism, arms trafficking, and the sale of nuclear technologies; management of prostitution; the commission and facilitation of income tax evasion, smuggling, and illegal immigration; illicit purchases of banks and real estate; and a panoply of financial crimes limited only by the imagination of its officers and customers.

…Among BCCI’s principal mechanisms for committing crimes were its use of shell corporations and bank confidentiality and secrecy havens; layering of its corporate structure; its use of front-men and nominees, guarantees and buy-back arrangements; back-to-back financial documentation among BCCI controlled entities, kick-backs and bribes, the intimidation of witnesses, and the retention of well-placed insiders to discourage governmental action.

…The result was that BCCI had relationships that ranged from the questionable, to the improper, to the fully corrupt with officials from countries all over the world, including Argentina, Bangladesh, Botswana, Brazil, Cameroon, China, Columbia, the Congo, Ghana, Guatemala, the Ivory Coast, India, Jamaica, Kuwait, Lebanon, Mauritius, Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Panama, Peru, Saudi Ara bia, Senegal, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Suriname, Tunisia, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, the United States, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

The techniques used […] included […] arranging to have its activities shielded by prestigious lawyers, accountants, and public relations firms on the one hand, and politically-well connected agents on the other.1

.

The method for hiding the money flow, was pioneered by the very bankers involved in setting up this shell corporation web that we are currently examining – the vatican’s Ambrosiano Group – as well as the CIA-supported bankers that helped launder drug-trafficking profits such as Robert Vesco.

.

In the same period, Bernie Cornfeld, chairman of the Investors Overseas Service (IOS), which sold ‘The Fund of Funds,” and fugitive financier Robert Vesco, siphoned off hundreds of millions of dollars from investors in the mutual fund that at its height had $3billion in assets under its management. In doing so, it moved funds held at Credit Suisse to a small bank which IOS itself owned based in Luxembourg, from which the funds disappeared. Again, this technique anticipated the methods used by BCCI to shift assets from legitimate institutions to its own, and then to engage in wire transfers sufficient to make them impossible to track.

Similar techniques were used by Italian financiers Michael Sindona and Roberto Calvi in connection with the collapses of the Banco Ambrosiano and the Franklin Bank; and by former CIA agent Michael Hand in the drug money laundering Nugan Hand Bank in Australia during the late 1970’s and early 1980’s.1

.

As usual, the various intelligence arms of ‘the Big 3’ were involved, and although the U.S. investigation focused on the CIA, please don’t make the mistake of thinking they were the only ones involved.

It is interesting to read of the deployment of the usual (and ancient) tactic of particularly the British nobility and the Vatican, when faced with getting caught. Records are ‘lost’, ‘burned’, “incomplete” and my personal favorite from centuries ago – “my donkey cart turned over” etc. etc. You get the idea.

Watch –

.

In the case of BCCI, former CIA officials, including former CIA director Richard Helms and Raymond Close, and allegedly the late CIA director William Casey; former and current foreign intelligence officials, including Kamal Adham and Abdul Raouf Khalil; and principal foreign agents of the U.S., such as Adnan Khashoggi and Manucher Ghorbanifar, make use of BCCI or work with BCCI nominees, and participate simultaneously in the making of key episodes in U.S. foreign policy, ranging from the Camp David peace talks to the arming of Iran as part of the Iran/Contra affair.

…The CIA’s legal department has described such activity by Casey, including any role he had in the Iran/Contra affair, as being undertaken in his position as an advisor to the President, rather than in his position as Director of Central Intelligence. In such cases, Casey would have taken actions which were outside the record keeping of the CIA, undocumented, fully deniable, and effectively irretrievable.

BCCI was used by key Iran/Contra figures to finance arms shipments to Iran. CIA records, as well as Kerr’s testimony, state the CIA did not know this.1

.

Now look at just what the CIA was involved with –

However, the record is clear […] BCCI was used from the late 1970’s in London by Iranian arms brokers who worked with the CIA in making political payments to Iranian politicians during the Carter years, and who then went into business with a close business and personal associate of CIA director William Casey during the Reagan Presidency. BCCI was also used in the United Kingdom by various arms dealers engaged in selling arms to Iran from the UK. Most important, it was extensively used by Adnan Khashoggi and Manucher Ghorbanifar in arms deals that were directly on behalf of the United States in connection with the North/Secord enterprise’s arms sales to Iran.

1984 -1986
According to the official chronologies of the Iran/Contra committees, Khashoggi acted as the middleman for five Iranian arms deals for the United States, financing a number of them through BCCI; a[…] shipments of U.S. TOW missiles and HAWKs to Iran […] Khashoggi was served as the “banker” for arms shipments as the undercover scheme developed in 1985 and 1986. Khashoggi himself said he advanced $1 million in August 1985 to “get the deal going.”

According to his own and other published accounts, he provided some $30 million in loans altogether, depositing money in a Swiss bank account controlled by Lake Resources, the company run by former White House aide Oliver North, who played the pivotal role in the operation involving the arms sales and diversion of funds to Nicaraguan Contra rebels.

Both Khashoggi and Ghorbanifar banked at BCCI’s offices in Monte Carlo, and for both, BCCI’s services were essential as a means of providing short-term credit for sales of arms from the U.S. through Israel to Iran. Khashoggi’s use of BCCI for the Iranian arms sales was first described, in passing, in an Iran/Contra committee deposition on June 8, 1987, describing the movement of $10 million from Credit Swisse which went through BCCI four times to produce $40 million of sales “and therefore, additional profit.”

…The professed lack of knowledge by the CIA about the activities of its foreign intelligence liaisons and operatives who were BCCI’s major shareholders and customers is perplexing. […] The CIA’s professions of total ignorance about their respective roles in BCCI are out of character with the Agency’s detailed knowledge of many critical aspects of the bank’s operations, structure, personnel, and history.

The CIA originally stated, twice, that it had never produced reports when BCCI when in fact three such finished reports existed. When information was eventually provided, it was incomplete. The CIA resisted providing what it characterized as a full account about its knowledge of BCCI until almost a year after the initial requests for the information. […] the CIA’s recurrent statements that its record keeping has not been consolidated, and that it is possible that records pertaining to BCCI, or its shareholders, could have been missed in its search.1

.

Love the dry humor of the Kerry Committee –

The professed lack of knowledge by the CIA about the activities of its foreign intelligence liaisons and operatives who were BCCI’s major shareholders and customers is perplexing.

In response, I’ll go with character Teal’c from Stargate famous line and expression –

Indeed.

Indeed tealc.

Well, I’d say all that pretty well establishes the general character of Mr. Smouha, but here’s one more interesting item.

Brian Smouha was also involved in something called CSC. I found an article in Indonesian, originally posted June 14, 2001 by indopubs.com and archived at Ohio University. The 2001 posting cites the original url of the article as: http://www.tempo.co.id/harian/fokus/24/2,1,3,id.html

I translated some of the text –

Article title: Corruption handler from Uncle Sam

Full name of the institution is the Center for the Study of Corruption and the Rule of Law (CSC). This institute offers aid anti-corruption program. The shape start from the analysis that systematic, up practical strategies and training in the fight against corruption.

In the years early, ILI is only focused on the scientific study and exchange academic. However, since the early 1970s, under the leadership of Prof. Don Wallace, ILI develop the focus of attention by holding   professional training in the fields of law, economics, and financial problems developing countries.

So, basically, these incredibly corrupt people are studying corruption. Man, is that an oxymoron.

Next – I’m going to lay out the different records – starting from the page of Paul Mousel (a director of United Trading) then I’ll get into what they are.

As to directors, there’s Brian Smouha as a director again, we’ve already covered him. Now, let’s take up the new name appearing on the list.

JULIO CESAR CONTRERAS III – (on the left)

julio-cesar-contreras-iii-eduardo-morgan-jr-lenis-ortega-candanedo-y-jose-alberto-alvarez

Julio went to school at the Catholic-run University called Loyola out of New Orleans, Louisiana. He graduated with a B.A. in 1972, and a with a J.D. in 1975, upon which he was immediately admitted to the Bar in 1975 in Panama.

He looks to be part of a pattern that I discussed about United Trading director Mr. Paisley – the pattern being taking a young lawyer fresh out of law school, but in this case, the guy was chosen to help form one of the most scandalous front groups of the Vatican banking schemes – which doesn’t speak much to his character, in my opinion.

 

JOSE ANGEL NORIEGA PEREZ

He was born in Panama on January 3, 1932. He studied Law and Political Science at the University of Chile. PhD in commercial law from the University of Paris. He taught at the Universities of Panama and Santa María la Antigua.

A new award in his name was created in 2015 –

On August 10, 2015, Dr. Eduardo Morgan, Jr., founding member of Morgan & Morgan, was honored by the National Bar Association with the Dr. Jose Angel Noriega Perez” recognition. This distinction, offered for the first time, was presented to Dr. Morgan to honor his commitment and contribution to trade law matters that have strengthen Panama’s platform for international financial services.

Ah, now I see why his name is on the directors list. He was a partner in the same law firm as Contreras.

José Angel NORIEGA PEREZ Doctor of law, Lawyer, Partner of law firm Arosemena, Noriega & Castro, Professor of
civil and commercial law at the University of Panama, Member of the Academy of Law, member of the Banking Law Insitute, former President of the Maritime Law Association, Member of the National Bar Association, of the Interamerican Bar Association and the International Bar Association.

.

That firm was formed in 1968.

Now, here’s the interesting thing.

The Arosemena part of the firm was Carlos Arosemena Arias. Why is that interesting?

Because….he’s actually related to the same guy that helped form Scientology’s Operation and Transport Corporation (OTC) that same year of 1968.

As a reminder, the agent name on OTC’s incorporation papers was: De La Guardia, Arosemena and Benedetti. Rodrigo Arosemena forming the Arosemena part of that firm.

I have found at least one instance that shows that these two were tight and actually worked together. A company called Kinta Corporation shows this.

KINTA CORPORATION – incorporated 27 June 1979 in Panama. Agent name is listed as: DE LA GUARDIA,AROSEMENA & BENEDETTI and under directors there are all these guys together: CARLOS AROSEMENA ARIAS, JULIO CESAR CONTRERAS III and RODRIGO AROSEMENA.

The Benedetti part of De La Guardia, Arosemena and Benedetti was Eloy Benedetti (born June 20, 1918) a legal advisor to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Panama from 1956-1964, created the firm Benedetti and Benedetti – he was the founding partner.

Here’s Carlos Arosemena’s (of Arosemena  Noriega  &  Contreras) obituary

The death of Dr. Carlos Arosemena Arias saddens the country’s lawyers. Arosemena was born in Panama on June 14, 1928. He studied at the University of Cambridge, Massachusetts and a doctorate in Law at the Central University of Madrid.
He served as secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, director of the OAS Office and Panama’s ambassador to the UN.
He was a founding member of the firm Arosemena, Noriega & Contreras where he served as managing partner.
Dr. José Angel Noriega partner of the firm told Panama America that Arosemena was “an honest person with a great spirit of progress”.

Both the Arosemena’s track back to (genealogy) the founding fathers of the Republic of Panama.

.

If you’ll notice, Carlos Arosemena’s obituary talks about how he worked with the Minister of Foreign affairs, as did Rodrigo Arosemena, apparently even the same time period.

Both Carlos and Rodrigo have some deep political connections but Rodrigo was seemingly especially fond of the Operation Gladio dictator types.

Indeed, he was even supportive of the combined CIA/Vatican/British operation to install dictator General Omar Torrijos as part of a coup led by Manuel Noriega and the National Guard, this same year of 1968 when Scientology forms its major money-laundering corporation.

Not only that, Arosemena provided his support to Omar’s illegitimate son, Martin Torrijos, in his bid to resurrect his father’s dictatorial ways.

I found this article about that time period – Google translated

The president of the party in formation “New Dawn”, the Legislator Rodrigo Arosemena, appealed to members of the Alliance “New Nation” that supports the candidacy of Martin Torrijos to fight with courage to overcome the division that is destroying the class Panamanian politics.

The statements of the 8-8 parliamentarian were given during a work tour in the interior of the country, where he indicated that in the next few days he will deliver to the Electoral Tribunal the necessary documents to have the opportunity for Nuevo Amanecer to become a political party, In order to offer the Panamanian people a serious, responsible and democratic organization.

We are preparing the way for the new millennium to take us to the United Kingdom where our hardworking children and young people can live in fraternity, peace and security of life for all,” he added.

Considering Torrijos was good buddies with George W. Bush – I find Arosemena’s words about their ‘plans’ rather spurious at best.

Note –

In opencorporates listing of another company that Brian Smouha is involved with – Worldwide Trading Corporation incorporated 29 December 1978 – we see that same law firm association with the name of Carlos Arosemena Aria as an agent. That’s how I found out who the Arosemena part of Arosemena, Noriega & Contreras was.

You are, no doubt, wondering by now why I am referring to these two corporations that we have examined so far (United Trading and Ambrosiano Group as being Vatican offshore accounts. I’ll be explaining that here shortly, but first let’s finish out the connections in this Paul Mousel web.

The first thing that you need to know is that the acronym BAA actually stands for Banco Ambrosiano Andinothat is our Vatican banking connection.

Under the banner of the IOR (the Vatican bank “Institute of Religious Works”) the Vatican admitted that it controlled in a partnership with Ambrosiano eleven ghost companies based in Panama, and guarantees all of their debts which at that time totaled roughly $1.5 billion.3

After Roberto Calvi got involved with Licio Gelli and Michael Sindona, the Banco Ambrosiano helped to set up foreign shell companies including more than ten in Panama, which were controlled by the papal bank. Banco Ambrosiano then loaned these shell companies up to 1.3 billion dollars – which then ‘disappeared’ via cash withdrawals. When this was discovered and the Ambrosiano was liquidated, the devastation to many average Italian families who were depositors was heart-breaking.

Here are all the different corporations that I have found so far that are part of this web.

LOVELOK ESTABLISHMENT – no date, registered in Leichtenstein September 15, 1956, deleted August 20, 1976. There’s an address in the Liechtenstein registry as: c/o Allgemeines Treuunternehmen Äulestrasse 5, 9490 Vaduz. Unknown ownership, however there is evidence linking it into the Banco Ambrosiano web, through Compendium.
Source: Opencorporates and Liechtensteinische Landesverwaltung, http://www.oera.li/webservices/HRG/HR…, 26 Dec 2016

  • 1957 – Lovelok formed Banca del Gottardo in Lugando, placing 40 percent of its capital with the Ambrosiano.
  • 1963 – Lovelok founded Luxembourg subsidiary called Compendium S.A. to buy more Banco Ambrosiano shares, borrowing money from Ambrosiano to do it with. Roberto Calvi renamed it Banco Ambrosiano Holding. S.A., which was only 40 percent owned by the supposed parent of Banco Ambrosiano. The other 60 percent was Lovelok. This meant, of course, that Lovelok and whoever owned that now had increased power in Ambrosiano affairs.2

BANCO AMBROSIANO HOLDING – this was the holding company for all these other ones. Incorporated 31 May 1963 in Luxembourg – dissolved 14 April 2005. Address given: 8-10, Rue Mathias Hardt, L-1717 Luxembourg

UNITED TRADING CORPORATION – incorporated May 5, 1974 in Panama. Source: Open Corporates and the Panama Registry as of October 2016. It was not dissolved until 2004. Subsidiaries included: Ulricor, La Fidele, Finproggram, Ordeo, Lantana, Casadilla, Marbella, Imparfin, and Teclefin. By 1982, Ulricor ranked as the eighth-largest shareholder of Ambrosiano stock with 1.2 percent.5

  • 21 November 1974 – Documents were unearthed in the records of the Banca del Gottardo in Switzerland that the Vatican set up and controlled these dummy corporations. One, dated November 21, 1974, and signed by Vatican officials, was a request for the Swiss bank to open accounts on behalf of its newly created company: United Trading Corporation of Panama. 8

BELLATRIX, S.A. – incorporated 4 September 1979 in Panama, dissolved 21 September 2004. Note the full names given of directors Allen Gerald Paisley and Brian Andrew Smouha. Bellatrix was a subsidiary of United Trading, allegedly controlled by Umberto Ortolani himself. Apparently, in the 1980’s the Rothschild Bank received a $150 million transfer from this Banco Ambrosiano offshore network to Bellatrix. This money went “missing” and less than 20 percent was recovered by the later Ambrosiano liquidators.2

In addition – there is Paul Marcinkus official letter.

Paul Marcinkus, who had become the secretary of the Vatican IOR bank in April 1968, issues a “letter” of patronage, dated September 1, 1981, written on Vatican letterhead.

Documented crossing point between the CIA and the Vatican

It is from this letter that we now have a documented crossing point between the CIA and the Vatican, because Lucien Grgoire documented in his book Murder in the Vatican (pp. 356-358) that Astolfine, Erin and Fisalma (which is a subsidiary of Bellatrix) had been created by the CIA for espionage activities.

1981 Banco Ambrosiano Andino IOR confidence vatican

It read as follows:

Gentlemen:
This is to confirm that we directly or indirectly control the following entries:
Manic SA, Luxembourg
Astrolfine SA, Panama
Nordeurop Establishment, Liechtenstein
United Trading Corporation, Panama
Erin SA, Panama
Bellatrix SA, Panama
Belrose SA, Panama
Starfield SA Panama
We also confirm our awareness of their indebtedness toward yourselves as of June 10, 1981, as per the attached statement of
accounts.

It is important for you to understand that the IOR belongs not to the Vatican city-state but to the pope alone.

Marcinkus and Pope John Paul II

Furthermore, Eric Frattini documented that Bellatrix was controlled by Intermarket Trading SA of Panama – yet another corporation within this Vatican/CIA network.

Intermarket held all the shares for Bellatrix on behalf of Manic SA, in turn controlled by the Vatican IOR bank.

FISALMA SA deserves some special attention, because out of the 3 named subsidiaries of Bellatrix that worked with the CIA conducting espionage, it’s the one that I could find some devastating connections through its directors.

FISALMA SA – incorporated in Panama 7 October 1974CIA and Vatican dummy corporation conduit. Involved in Operation Gladio espionage, and money-laundering and arms deals. Subsidiary of Bellatrix, Intermarket Trading SA held its shares for Manic SA, owned by BAH. President of Panama and a Swiss Banker who later becomes head of the IOR (Vatican Bank) are on the board.

Directors:

AROSEMENA, NORIEGA Y CASTRO, agent,
CARLOS AROSEMENA ARIAS (same as the Ambrosiano other ones in Panama)
EL PRESIDENTE (This means Panamanian President Demetrio Basilio Lakas Bahas)
ERNEST KUENG
GABRIEL CASTRO SUAREZ
HANS URS LANZNER
PHILIPPE DEWECK.

We already know about Carlos Arosemena, but do remember that his buddy/relative Rodrigo Arosemena (who founded L. Ron Hubbard’s money-laundering corporation OTC in 1968) was, at one time, heavily promoting the election of the illegitimate son of Military Dictator General Trujillos.

demetrio_basilio_lakasThe reason that’s of interest, is because ‘El Presidente” Demetrio Lakas, was the right-hand man of Dictator Trujillo’s reign (and a truly puppet President). El Presidente took gleeful part in the oppression of any dissent against this installed dictatorship. Imprisoning people, censoring books, gatherings and the media – the whole nine yards.

.

And here he is sitting on the board of this CIA-Vatican espionage front. I’ll give you three guesses why and the first two don’t count!

Brigadier-General Omar Torrijos was the military de facto leader of Panama for over twenty years from 1968 to 1989. It was the following year that Demetrio Basilio Lakas Bahas, the son of Greek Immigrants and a close friend of General Torrijoswas named president of the provisional government council. Mr. Lakas held that post until 1972, when he was elected president by the 505-member Assembly of Community Representatives. With all the suppression of dissent going on, what a farce that election must have been.

Trujillos and Lakas

.

Lakas held this position for seven years, until October 11, 1978. Note: Lakas had graduated from Texas Tech University in 1963.

The New York Times – Lakas obituary:

‘Lakas was in many respects the man who kept the wheels of government turning in Panama on a day-to-day basis,” and ”not the figurehead executive that some observers assumed,” a former United States ambassador to Panama, William J. Jorden, wrote in 1984 in a book, ”Panama Odyssey.” But, he wrote, ”The central authority, the final decision-making power, belonged to Torrijos.”

As president, Mr. Lakas had a role in contacts between Panama and the United States that led to two treaties between the two nations under which Panama will gain control over the Panama Canal at the end of this year.

…When Mr. Lakas was president, the government controlled the news media strictly and opposed dissent. 

…An important moment during his term as provisional president occurred in 1970, when he had a 50-minute meeting with President Richard M. Nixon in Washington that set the stage for subsequent negotiations about the canal.”

.

Lakas was also a devout Catholic. Here he is being blessed by Pope Paul John Paul VI for all his dirty money dealings and suppression of the populace.

These people are unbelievable in their hypocrisy, don’t you think? Wow.

The other directors of FISALMA SA, I couldn’t find pretty much anything about (which is odd in today’s day and age) except for one, and it’s a big one.

PHILIPPE DEWECK – Swiss Banker

philippe-de-weck_necrologie_091212

.

De Weck started out young in banking, but when the bank he worked at was taken over by Union Bank of Switzerland in 1953, he was made the head of the Freiburg branch. Three years later he headed the Geneva branch, and in 1964 he was transferred to the bank’s headquarters in Zurich, where he was appointed Assistant Director.

De Weck – 1957 (second from left)

philippe-de-weck-1957

Within two years of him starting his stint at this lovely shell corporation game of the CIA (and MI6) and the Vatican through FISALMA, he was made the President of the Board of Union Bank from 1976 to 1980.

Now we know where some of that money was laundered off to and hidden.

De Weck – 1979

phillippe-de-weck-1979-fisalma-cia-vatican-money-laundering

It gets worse. Like Paul Mousel, he too was made part of the ‘group of experts’ supposedly examining the Ambrosiano scandal only De Weck was much higher up the food chain. Between 1982 and 1985 he was assigned to help the IOR, Instituto per le Opere Religiose, the Vatican Bank – the Pope’s personal bank.

And then…in 1989, he was appointed vice president of the IOR, a position he held for eight years!

That be a big fish we just caught behind-the-scenes here.

Going into the Abyssopelagic Zone now, we find that Wikispooks lists him as a bottom feeder member of Le Cercle, described as:

Le Cercle (formerly Pinay Circle or the Cercle Pinay) is a deep state milieu set up in the early 1950s. It has members from around 25 countries and has biannual 2-4 day secret meetings on alternate sides of the Atlantic. The group’s activities are little known but leaked documents and members’ interests would tend to suggest the subversion of the political process – especially using Gladio-style terrorism and assassination under the banner of “anti-communism” – and the clandestine arrangement of fraudulent business transactions, especially arms deals.

.

See why FISALMA deserved special attention?

OK.

Here’s the rest of the new ones, in time order –

Some time after the formation a branch had been opened in the Bahamas. After the network was exposed as part of the Roberto Calvi scandal, Gotthard was aquired by Japanese Sumitomo Bank in 1984, then it was aquired by BSI in March of 2008.

.

When Ambrosiano banker Roberto Calvi was found hanging from London Bridge, and the shit was hitting the literal fan about the missing $1.5 billion, our continuously appearing Luxembourg lawyer Paul Mousel said that he found “no concrete evidence” of money laundering in Banco Ambrosiano Holding (BAH). Perhaps he was staring at the ceiling when he was looking for the evidence…

no_evidence_on_the_ceiling.

concrete_evidence

.

leaf divider.

So, that’s the basic dox.

How about now we tell a bit of the story that’s behind all this, yea?

Come with me…

Come with Me.

Without going into the entire background of Operation Gladio here in this post (it’s already been well covered elsewhere at our blog) let me just give you the nutshell version.

The two main divisions of Operation Gladio’s behind-the-scenes operations against humanity, can best be expressed by describing their money lines.

While former OSS (the predecessor to the CIA) agent Paul L.E. Helliwell and Robert Vesco were setting up the banking network in Miami and the Bahamas, Vatican agents Michael Sindona and Roberto Calvi were spear-heading the same type networks in Luxembourg and Panama.

The Vatican banks were initially used for attacks in Italy, Turkey, and Western Europe.

The Helliwell banks were initially used for attacks on countries in Latin America and the Far East. They two networks soon began to cross and the whole world became Fair Game to these lunatics.

The initial money financing for all this started out being from opium purchases using Nazi gold and assets (stolen from Jewish people primarily) that had been laundered through the World Commerce Corporation.

This was the beginning of the whole new ‘illegal’ narcotics industry, starting just as WWII was ending.

Profits from that were then used to provide funding to Operation Gladio and its strategy of tension after the war. For example, Operation Condor and its support of right-wing regimes in South and Central America, like the coup in Panama that I mentioned earlier. This all expanded and  – besides drug-trafficking – came to include gambling, prostitution, arms sales and other illicitly gained profits – continuing for decades.

This represents what I call ‘the Big 3’ – the Vatican, the British, and their counterparts in the U.S., in action.

Pablo Escobar, The Brotherhood of Eternal Love, and other leading drug lords and groups were “encouraged” (by priests, bishops, and “spiritual leaders”) – and by Roberto Calvi – to deposit their profits in the money-laundering banks, either/both in Helliwell’s and Calvi’s networks.

The Vatican played a key role in the emergence of the cocaine trade by offering the drug cartels its money-laundering service in exchange for stiff fees.

How much were these ‘fees’?

Anywhere from a total of 40 to 65 percent.

.

thats not something you see every day - vincent.

That is a LOT of money.

So, yes, the Vatican, the British (certain ones) and the CIA composed and run by supporters of both, were using DRUG MONEY for their Operations Against Humanity. And yes, that’s called money-laundering.

They knew what they were doing.

The first shell company established by the Vatican specifically for the purpose of laundering the Cartels money (Escobar – cocaine) was the Cisalpine Overseas Bank in Bahamas, a subsidiary branch of Cisalpine of Panama, linked to Cisalpine Anstalt in Luxembourg that had formed in 1975. On any given day, throughout the 1970s, the shell company held $75 million in cash deposits.7

As part of this Ambrosiano network, how it worked was that the money they received was wired or transported by courier (usually a priest) to the central headquarters of Banco Ambrosiano in Milan. From Milan, the money was re-routed to the IOR (The Vatican ‘special’ bank) which then charged an additional processing fee of 15 to 20 percent. From there, the funds were transferred to numbered bank accounts at Banca del Gottardo or Union Bank of Switzerland.4

Note: that’s our head of Union Bank guy Philippe De Weck’s role, he was on the board of FISALMA SA, if you recall.

By 1978, when John Paul II became Pope, the money coming in from the Medellin Cartel alone was astronomical. Escobar, at the height of his power, was smuggling fifteen tons of cocaine into the United States every day.

Where were most of these drugs going to/aimed at destroying?

The American people.

.

While destroying them, the profits from that were then used to destroy other countries peoples who refused to ‘get with the program‘ of these insane men and women who think they should rule the world.

And they called it upholding DEMOCRACY.

ooh_-_jackie_gleason.

Must have been some serious sub-understanding* going on whenever they used that word, because what they did in no way resembles Thomas Jefferson’s vision – that’s for damn sure.

But Jefferson’s description of them is still picture-perfect. They are hostis humani generusthe enemy of the human race.

*Sub-understanding – Jesuit term for lying-through-your-teeth basically. See: The Connection Between Synanon and Scientology – Part 8: Duly Dothly Swear

.

Pope Francis has “a sincere desire to turn the page on an embarrassing past and reform the way in which the Catholic Church handles money….”

“Embarassing”?

That’s not the word I would use to describe all this.
