For those readers who wanted to know who on Cyprus were allegedly involved in manufacturing the "frame-up," or phony criminal charges brought against Pantelis Varnavas, in order to force whistleblower Maria Efimova to return to a kangaroo trial in Malta, here are the individuals identified in the INTERPOL Decision referred to in our recent articles. The location of each person identified in the Decision has been noted, for future reference, in the event that a criminal investigation into fraudulent testimony that led to an INTERPOL warrant is opened. They reportedly gave false testimony to law enforcement. It is detailed in the Decision,
Compliance officers should take notice of these names, because they are all linked to a corrupt scheme to frame Varnavas for crimes he did not commit, sponsored by dark forces abroad, located mainly in Malta. If you have existing account relationships with any of these names, your risk-based compliance approach may call for their accounts to be closed, and Suspicious Activity Reports be belatedly filed, to protect the bank, and your professional reputation, and assets.
