  1. Restis files multi-billion dollar defamation suit against UANI

    (New Europe) July 22, 2013 – Victor Restis, a Greek entrepreneur and owner of one of the world’s largest shipping businesses, announced today that he has filed a defamation lawsuit against the non-governmental organization United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) and its CEO, Mark D. Wallace, a former United Nations Committee Delegate, for falsely, knowingly and maliciously conducting a global campaign claiming that Restis, Jewish grandson of Holocaust victims, is a “front-man” for the Iranian regime, and that he and his family’s companies, Enterprises Shipping and Trading, S. A. (EST) and First Business Bank, S. A. (FBB) are engaged in illegal business dealings with Iran.

    From link:
    The Restis group denies the allegations by the US anti-Iran lobbying group United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) claiming its ship violated international sanctions

  2. Hmm. Is the issue here Mossad or CIA? To me, this quote:

    Government lawyers said they had a “good faith basis to believe that certain information” would jeopardize law enforcement investigations, reveal investigative techniques or identify confidential sources if released.”

    seems to suggest that it is the CIA using UANI to blackmail American corporation into becoming assets on Iran. Of course, that would mean the CIA turning a blind eye to UANI’s extortion, which would effectively mean the CIA channelling criminally-obtained cash to an American lobby group in order to sway public policy. But how likely is that?

  3. I’m doing a search on some more background on the UANI group, from their website a long list of former government officials as its advisers.

    Does this match your own observations when an Israeli attack on Iran was a ‘doable’ solution?

  4. Mark D. Wallace of United Against Nuclear Iran is CEO of Tigris Financial Group, a private investment firm.
    Tigris Financial Group LTD operates as a subsidiary of GRAT Holdings LLC.

    Grat Holdings LLC is a Maryland Limited-Liability Company filed on July 21, 2004. The company’s filing status is listed as Active and its File Number is W10114445.

    Electrum Strategic Resources LLC.

    The Electrum Group of Companies is not as transparent as it should be. Bloomberg (as of 26 December 2010) records that “Electrum Strategic Holdings LLC [is] a wholly owned subsidiary of GRAT Holdings LLC…located at 1370 Avenue of the Americas, 19th Floor, New York, NY 10019”.

    And, indeed, the two concerns are not only registered at the same address, but a Mr William Natboy is officially designated Chief Executive Officer of GRAT, as well as both Electrum Strategic Holdings and Electrum Strategic Metals LLC. . “GRAT” is an acronym for “grantor retained annuity trust” – a financial instrument, commonly used in the USA, “to make large financial gifts to family members without paying a U.S. gift tax” [wikipedia, accessed 26 December 2010]. It might seem surprising that Electrum would openly advertise its propensity to evade a form of taxation which ordinary citizens could find difficult to avoid.

    However, there’s little doubt who stands to benefit from the operations of GRAT in this instance: the man actually controlling Electrum Strategic Holdings and profiting from it, 48-year old Mr Thomas S. Kaplan [$30,400 to RNC on 04/07/10].

    Just who is Thomas Kaplan?

    Born in the USA, but educated in Switzerland and Britain, as a student Kaplan started analysing Israeli hedge funds [Wall Street Journal 22 May 2010], before moving to New York to begin trading in earnest, and marrying a serving soldier in the Israeli Defence Forces [Dafna Recanati, the daughter of Israeli investor Leon Recanati]. Later, Kaplan set up an investment vehicle called the Tigris fund which has $2bn invested globally, according to the The Wall Street Journal [See also: Forbes Magazine, 21 April 2010].

    1. Spelling error in article, should be William Natbony.

      A. The Trusts and Natbony as Trustee.

      11. The Trusts at issue in this litigation, upon information and belief, hold over two billion dollars, almost all of which constitute proceeds of the sale of Leor Exploration and Production LLC (“Leor”), a natural gas exploration company that was founded by Kaplan and Guma in 2003. Natbony and Kaplan were the directors of Leor. Leor was sold in 2007 for over 2.55 billion dollars. Almost all ofthe proceeds were funneled into the Trusts.
