On OneCoin Irina Dilkinska Extradited to US After Cooperator Armenta Redacted Filings
Would they give Dilkinska a deal? Mark Scott’s defense, in part, was that... More here
SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 21 -- For money laundering for scam crypto currency OneCoin, lawyer Mark Scott was convicted by a jury after testimony by Konstantin Ignatov and others but was allowed to remain free on bail pending sentencing.
On December 5, 2022, the related indictment against Frank Schneider was unsealed and Inner City Press immediately uploaded it here.
On January 18, 2023, Gilbert Armenta's sentencing was request to be pushed back, yet again, this time from January 24 to February 16.
On January 27 Armenta's lawyer filed a heavily redacted sentencing memo - 12 pages about his crimes are blacked out - asking for a time served sentencing. Memo on Patreon here.
On January 31, Inner City Press filed a two-page motion to unseal - which Judge Ramos endorsed on February 8, with responses due February 10 and a hearing on February 14 at 10 am. Endorsed letter on DocumentCloud here.
(Just) before 5 pm on February 10, the US Attorney's Office filed a letter that Armenta's counsel would be unredacting - but when they did, after 9 pm, it was begrudging, and not enough. Amenta's letter, citing Jen Shah, here on Patreon.
And when Armenta's lawyers put in an after-hours response trying to use Inner City Press' filings on Jen Shah to support secrecy, it still redacted far too much - letter here on DocumentCloud, still too redacted filing on Patreon here -
Now on March 21, SDNY prosecutors announce unsealing of charges against IRINA DILKINSKA in connection with her participation in the massive OneCoin fraud scheme. OneCoin, which began operations in 2014 and was based in Sofia, Bulgaria, marketed and sold a fraudulent cryptocurrency by the same name through a global multi-level-marketing (“MLM”) network. As a result of misrepresentations made about OneCoin, victims invested over $4 billion worldwide in the fraudulent cryptocurrency. DILKINSKA was extradited from Bulgaria yesterday and will be presented before United States Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn later today."
