German Landesbanks & Swiss Cheese

Let us leave Dippy Denny to NF's tender mercies and his inevitable fate and write of more important matters.

The DT business section reports today that the state owned Landesbanks, one for each German State so 11 in all are in trouble through getting involved in leveraged excess and straying from their home patch. Alas it is the same old story of fallen bankers and fast derivatives. Landesbanks remit was to boost regional industry and finance family run Mittelstand firms that are the heart of the German manufacturing economy. To that end they had a state guarantee for their liabilities but alas that guarantee also extends to covering their losses in foreign fields. This could even bankrupt the guaranteeing state!

One cannot overemphasize the importance of these banks to the German economy. They are more important than the infamous larger Dodgy Bank, Dreadful Bank, Comical Bank and Hypothetical Bank. Landesbanks are truely the heart of the German economy. Frau Merkel will slaughter her PIGS but if the Landesbanken fall then Germany falls.

Coming closer to home the story in the same organ that Ivan Pictet, head of the Geneva banking association, has warned that if Switzerland gives up its banking secrecy laws the Swiss financial sector will reduce by 50% from 12% to 6% of Swiss GDP. Customers are already withdrawing their money because of concerns about tax probes from the EU and US. The Swiss know how important it is to keep their competitive advantage in this area. The EU will be applying pressure with talk of level playing fields etc. I am sure the Swiss will resist this and call the EU's bluff but I am equally sure HMG will cave in to EU pressure. They always do. The Swiss have a great Ace in the Hole in that the EU political class do not like paying tax either and have squirrelled away money in Switzerland. No bank security is perfect as I am sure M Pictet will remind Barosso.

Pictet & Cie Bank & Peters & Peters.

The bank and it’s officials deliberately withheld crucial documents requested under a High Court order.The bank and it’s officials deliberately withheld evidence from the Police , and one of it’s account managers Susan Broadhead gave a false witness statement to the police.
Another one of it’s managers Nicholas Campiche ( Now Head of Pictet – Alternative Investments.)concocted a letter pretending to be a client and closed his account. The senior partner (Ivan Pictet.)sought to have numerous documents destroyed,along with those copies held in their London office of P.A.M. Initially stating that they were forgeries then their lawyers Peters & Peters – Monty Raphael – and the barrister Charles Flint.Q.C.) –later had to admit in Court that the documents were genuine.

(1) It is a criminal offence for a bank to knowingly act for an undischarged criminal bankrupt in so far as it seeks to assist that criminal bankrupt in the fraudulent movement of monies. ( Money Laundering.)

(2) It is a criminal offence for a bank to lie to the police and the bankrupts trustee in bankruptcy in so far as any knowledge of, or dealings with the bank was refuted .

(3) A bank can be guilty of Contempt of Court if it fails to comply fully with the Courts order for discovery .

(4) The banks contempt is further compounded if it fails to address its error after it is specifically drawn to the to its solicitors attention. ( Monty Raphael).

(5) It is a criminal offence under the Financial Services Act to seek to destroy evidence that might be relevant to an investigation .

(6) It is a criminal offence not to relinquish control of funds to the Trustee immediately the fact of the bankruptcy is drawn to the banks attention.

(7) It is a criminal offence to lie or otherwise obfuscate the lawful and proper enquiries of the F.S.A.

On Dec 9th,2008. the complaint was sent to 150 Members of the House Of Lords and 230 Members of Parliament.

*** We thank ---David Cameron. M.P. ( Canary Wharf Speech.) Dec. 2008.

(1) Bankers who behave irresponsibly should face professional consequences.
(2) If anyone is found to have behaved criminally they must be prosecuted.
(3) The F.S.A. and the Serious Fraud Office should be following up every lead,
investigating every suspect transaction .
(4) We need to make it 100% clear –those who break the law should face
prosecution.
(5) That we make sure we root out any wrongdoing that may have happened, whoever is
involved ,however high or well connected they may be.

Quote. ( America’s Top Lawyer .)
You can be the richest man in the world with the best lawyers that money can buy but you cannot win against a man who has got nothing left to lose and is telling the truth.

In June.2009 .it will be exactly a year since we started our campaign via the “net” to highlight our fight to get “justice”. In our second year campaign we will reveal further damning evidence . We again thank other “ E- Mailers” for their information in relation to our campaign.

British Justice. --- Update. Sept 16th 2012.

Lawyers --- we cannot promise you’ll get justice but you will get the law.
We are getting neither.

The Problem.--- the following are supposed to be whiter than white.

Lawyers. –Peters & Peters.-London.— Monty Raphael. Q.C.
Bankers.- Pictet& Cie.-London- Switzerland.--- Ivan Pictet.
Government Institutions . F.S.A.- Financial Services Authority.
Police.— Sir Norman Bettison. and numerous West Yorkshire Police
officers –guilty of crimes.

** They have broken the “law” but we cannot get “justice.”

We were fobbed off in 2005 by the FSA when we pointed out some fifteen
shortcomings in their regulatory and legal obligations in dealing with the banks.
Along came RBS and all that followed. Banking chaos --- completely out of
control. Brought the country to its knees.

Our dealings with Law Enforcement bodies at all levels showed the same
arrogance --- we are the law we protect our own --- bugger Joe public. ---
bugger the laws we are paid to enforce.

Sir Norman Bettison –Chief Constable –West Yorkshire Police ordered the Forces
Solicitor to ignore a High Court judges ruling to hand over “ non sensitive –
unused material” --- . ( can anybody control him.)

Monty Raphael Q.C. --- too clever by half --- in conjunction with his client the
notorious Pictet & Cie. Swiss Bank --- decide to leave out / destroy crucial
documents requested under a High Court Order.

None of the above pillar’s of society will take me to Court and say I’m telling
untruth’s, I keep on hoping.

Sods ---- Law.

Dec. 2013.


For almost two decades we have strived to get justice for the injustice we have suffered at the hands of a world renowned bank .( Pictet & Cie.)

Two Yorkshire men both running their own family businesses trying to resolve the problem by taking the correct legal procedures to recover their monies.

The matter was raised in parliament –twice – the FSA investigated the matter concluding that the bank had rogues operating in their London Bank --- but the rogues had left --- so there.

We then approached the Financial Ombudsman Service – our case was dealt with by seven different people ---- then numerous E-Mails were ignored --- nobody would speak to us. – so there.

We then asked the SFO ( Serious Fraud Office) to investigate our case
--- the criteria of our case ticked all their boxes --- we were instructed not to send down any documents / evidence --- in fact they wrote to us advising us to go to the Citizen’s Advice Bureau. ( CAB) .

RICHARD ALDERMAN ( The Boss) ---- who responded to our letter was the man who would not investigate the “ Madoff “ scandal or the “Libor” fiasco. The MP’S committee ----- said he was sloppy --- and the SFO was run like “ Fred Karno’s Circus. ----- so there.

Our M.P. approached our local Chief Constable to investigate – our West
Yorkshire Police Force --- made “ Dad’s Army” look like the S.A.S.
Inept , corrupt – from top to bottom. We were criminally dealt with by the Forces Solicitor --- the Head of the Economic Crime Unit --- and the Chief Constable --- one SIR NORMAN BETTISON. ---- so there.

We then were advised to pass our complaint against West Yorkshire Police to the I.P.C.C.--- which we did -- they instructed the West Yorkshire Police to look into our complaint. ----so there.

Sir Norman Bettison ---and the Forces Solicitor –and the Head of the Economic Crime Unit – all removed from their posts and facing criminal allegatioins. --- So there

We even sought justice through the Courts , culminating in a visit to the Court of Appeal. London. On leaving the Court of Appeal that day our barrister ( a rising star ) informed us that if that was justice then they can keep it. He quit the law and moved to Canada.----so there.

We learned a few years later that one of the judge’s in our case at the Courts of Appeal was related to a senior executive of the Bank.—so there.

The Bank ---- PICTET & CIE.. London. --- Geneva.
Voted private bank of the year ---2013.
IVAN PICTET ---- the senior partner --- lied on numerous occasions and had documents destroyed --- said genuine documents were forgeries.
2012—Voted Banker of the Year.
Oct 2013 --- Given the LEGION of HONOUR --- so there

But saying that honours were given to Hitler—Eichmann--- Mussolini --
Franco – he’s in fitting company. ---- so there.

MONTY RAPHAEL –Peters & Peters. London were the banks lawyers.
He along with Ivan Pictet withheld crucial documents requested by the High Court ---- the FSA and the police Fraud Squad.

Monty Raphael became an Honorary Queens Counsellor. ( Q.C.) in March.2012 ---- made Master of the Bench in Nov.2012 .
An expert in Fraud – the Doyen of Fraud Lawyers – so there.

This says a lot about Banks ---- the consensus of opinion is that they are highly paid “crooks” --- no wonder they voted Ivan Pictet banker of the year .
