Kohn and Madoff. According to Irving Picard, the lawyer recovering money for the fraud victims, Austrian banker Sonja Kohn was a "criminal soul mate" of Bernard Madoff for 23 years. (Austrian banker Kohn key to Madoff crimes)
Allegedly, Kohn ran an international network of banks and funds in order to help carry out the fraud.
Reportedly, Madoff secretly paid Kohn at least $62 million in secret kickbacks.
"With Russian oligarchs as clients," said an Austrian banker, "she might have reason to be afraid." (Movie) Where is the real Madoff?
Fraud examiner Harry Markopolos (or Makropoulos) said of the Madoff scheme, "When you're that big and that secretive, you're going to attract a lot of organized crime money, and which we now know came from the Russian mob and the Latin American drug cartel. And when you're zeroing out mobsters, you have a lot to fear."
HSBC and its staff have been accused of receiving "kickbacks for looking the otherway while legitimising BLMIS (Bernard L Madoff Investment Securities) through their name and brand, making it attractive to investors". (HSBC 'took kickbacks to keep Madoff in business'.)

Ken Lay lives in Paraguay and Bernie Madoff and Mark Madoff will join him?
In May of 1999, a very nice Greek-American by the name of Harry Makropoulos, the world’s greatest expert on derivatives, sent a report to the SEC’s Boston office calling the Madoff operation the ‘world’s largest hedge fund fraud’.
My fellow Greek stipulated that ‘my name not be released to anyone other than the Branch Chief and Team Leader in the New York Region without my express permission. I am worried about the personal safety of myself and my family. The report has been written solely for the SEC’s internal use.’
Whom was he afraid of?
Those in the know say Mossad and Israel;
I say rogue Mossad agents acting alone with Madoff.
Makropoulos nailed Madoff, listing the back-door marketing and financing schemes as if he were an insider. But the SEC did not respond.
Powerful political voices ordered the SEC not to proceed. I am not naming names because libel laws mostly favour the criminal in Europe, and their names will never get past the libel lawyers.
The largest investors were not Jewish charities as was reported by Jewish-owned newspapers in New York, but French, Spanish and Swiss private banks. It was Sonia Kohn, of the Medici bank of Vienna, a woman who makes Midge Dexter look like Ava Gardner, who involved Charles Fix...
"I used to model for Harley Street specialists... starting in 1958 as a 12 year-old.
"The police, led by top-cops Joe Simpson and Shirley Becke, used to supply Profs Emanuel Miller and Richard Asher with the drugs they wanted to study, and used me as a guinea-pig!
"There would be several off-duty coppers present to see the result and work out how to deal with an acid-head."

Maxwell Knight recruited Driberg as an agent for MI5.
In 1941 the communist Anthony Blunt arranged for Driberg to be expelled from the Communist Party.
In 1940 Lord Ted Rothschild (above) suggested that communist Anthony Blunt should be invited to join the UK secret service. He also rented a house to his communist friend Guy Burgess. Rothschild worked with communist Kim Philby at the MI6 offices established at the Rothschild family mansion in Paris. (www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/SSrothschild.htm). In the book 'The Fifth Man', Roland Perry puts the case that Ted Rothschild was a major spy for Russia and Israel.

"Although Driberg avoided any public scandal during his lifetime, it appears that the Kremlin was able to blackmail him into becoming a KGB agent – codename Lepage – after one blowjob too many in Moscow.
Driberg had a lucky escape when caught with a Norwegian sailor in an air raid shelter in Edinburgh. Fortunately the policeman was an avid reader of the William Hickey column and let him off. In fact the policeman and Tom Driberg became friends and exchanged letters...
