PROVOST MARSHAL CALLED TO CITIBANK IN CRISIS SCENE
Tuesday 20 November 2007 16:38
WANTA'S $4.5 TRILLION IS NOW ON THE BOOKS AT CITIBANK, 399 PARK AVENUE, NEW YORK
CITBANK TODAY REFUSES WANTA ACCESS TO HIS FUNDS, BLOCKS SIGNING OF MASTER CUSTODIAL ACCOUNT AND RELEVANT DOCUMENTS, CONTRARY TO U.S. OFFICIAL INSTRUCTIONS YESTERDAY. UNPRECEDENTED WANTAGATE CRISIS ESCALATES.
AMBASSADOR AND COTTRELL ORDERED OFF THE PREMISES BY OWNER OF THE BUILDING
This morning, Tuesday 20th November, Ambassador Lee Emil Wanta and Michael C. Cottrell, M.S., Executive Vice President and Treasurer of Ambassador Wanta's Commonwealth of Virginia-based AmeriTrust Groupe, Inc., turned up, as officially instructed, at Citibank's office at 399 Park Avenue, in Midtown Manhattan, to sign the relevant documents to finalise the Master Custodial Account and the relevant additional paperwork for the transfer of the $4.5 trillion belonging to the Ambassador, to his corporate securities account with Morgan Stanley, New York.
They visited the bank after the State Department, the Federal Reserve and the US Treasury, had each separately advised, and had subsequently CONFIRMED yesterday, that the $4.5 trillion is now ON THE BOOKS at Citibank, 399 Park Avenue.
The State Department, the Federal Reserve and the US Treasury also separately confirmed that the Ambassador 'has been paid', in the above context, and that they should show up at the bank this morning, as indicated above.
Upon arrival at 399 Park Avenue this morning, the Principals asked to see Mr William R. Rhodes. They were told that he was away from the bank today. They then asked to see Mr William Ferguson. He was not available. Richard Lava, Securities Chief, maintained his previous 'line', as did other Citibank officials, that the Ambassador and Mr Cottrell have no business with the bank.
However last evening (19th November), when Mr Richard Lava was contacted by telephone and told about the Provost Marshal and the arrests, he expressed surprise that the Ambassador and Mr Cottrell knew about them, thereby revealing of course that he knew all about them. In other words, Mr Lava acknowledged the accuracy of what we have published here on this subject.
Faced with this REFUSAL by Citibank to implement the instructions of the US State Department,
the Federal Reserve and the US Treasury (which, for once, were all supposedly singing from the same hymn sheet, and were believed, for the time being, NOT to be dissimulating), the Principals informed all three official parties, each of which expressed genuine SHOCK at the situation.
Separately, the Ambassador and Mr Cottrell asked the Provost Marshal to come immediately to the scene to enforce his will and that of the State Department, the Federal Reserve, and the Treasury.
We await developments.
The Editor has been asked to post this notice pending the outcome of this dramatic crisis.
Shortly after the Editor received these details by telephone from Michael Cottrell from Citibank's premises at 399 Park Avenue, the Editor received a further call from Mr Cottrell stating that the owner of the building, Boston Properties, had ordered the Ambassador and Mr Cottrell off the premises. The Chief Executive Officer of Boston Properties, which was founded in 1970 by Morton Zuckerman, is Edward H. Lynde.
We now await the arrival of the Provost Marshal at the premises of Citibank, 399 Park Avenue, and as soon as we hear anything more, the Editor will update this interim report.
The Principals were requested to turn up at the bank this morning to finalise and sign off the overdue necessary paperwork, which the US official sources stated had been ready since last Thursday, 17th November 2007. Citibank have been stalling ever since.
The Citibank officials concerned with this matter at the highest levels are: William R. Rhodes, Chairman of Citibank, William Ferguson, and Richard Lava, Securities Chief.
THIS IS AN UNPRECEDENTED ESCALATION OF THE GRAVE WANTAGATE CRISIS. WE WILL ADVISE FURTHER AS SOON AS UPDATED INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE FROM THE PRINCIPALS. WATCH THIS WEBSITE PLEASE. THIS IS A VERY CRITICAL SITUATION. STAY POSTED.
