As we have previously reported, Ornstein's involvement with a Palestinian refugee charity that was a Hamas front, ended badly. He reportedly embezzled more than$35,000 from donations, which he was soliciting on the Internet. Soon thereafter, he disappeared from the Netherlands, where he and a Palestinian fundraiser, Amin Abu Rashed, who has been linked to two other US- sanctioned charities, were working together, on a bogus charity that claimed to be supporting Palestinian refugees forced to flee Syria, but in truth and in fact was a Hamas front.

Will it all end badly for Panama's most prolific fraudster ? And what will it be, a long prison term, in a Central American jail, or terminated "with extreme prejudice ?" We cannot say, but this career criminal has given Panamanian and Americans far too much grief, to allow him to continue to operate.
