If you have seen any of the pleas for donations, said to be for attorney's fees, for the convicted and imprisoned white-collar career criminal (and ex-general manager of the Marc Harris Ponzi scheme, The Harris organization), Okke Ornstein, be advised that he has a court-appointed attorney in Panama, which is paid for by government funds. He has absolutely no attorney's fees bills to pay, in the three criminal cases presently pending in Panama City; The donation request is a scam.
What is also untrue is the story being hawked by a plethora of radical "journalists.", that Ornstein is innocent of one of the two cases that he is serving 40 months on, in Panama. Don't you believe it for a moment; he not only had competent counsel, he actually appeared at each any every hearing, so for him to cry about due process, is simply the last gasp of a convicted felon, grasping at straws. Innocent journalist ? Don't make me laugh.
By the way, after Ornstein serves his 40 months, he will be deported to his native Netherlands, where he must serve a year in prison, and pay a one million dollar judgment, in yet another case. He also stole thirty five thousand Euros from a Palestinian charity, in the Netherlands; perhaps he will be charged with that case also, while serving his Dutch sentence, in 2020.
