Thomas Creal, former United Nations Panel Expert and financial forensic team lead for Task Force 2010 in Afghanistan has announced that he will be visiting Hvar on Monday, August 21, 2017. The purpose is his new mission to help the NGO www.stopblackmoneyincroatia.com in its cause to fight back against the black money that they feel has caused damage to Croatia.
“I have heard wonderful things about Hvar” says Creal. “But I have also heard about how black money and trickery was used to acquire treasured assets and sent prices through the roof. This case is not about funding terrorism, but there are still victims.”
Creal has spent more than 35 years attacking black money all over the world, especially the aiders and abettors. His success includes Charles Taylor, now serving 50 years for war crimes, the recovery of over $1billion USD in Afghanistan, and the use of social media in the fight against current terrorism financiers.
Recently, a court in Croatia sentenced former Prime Minister Ivo Sanader to 10 years in prison for ‘war profiteering’, in a case closely watched by the EU. Sanader, in office from 2003 to 2009, was convicted of taking millions of dollars in bribes. Ongoing in the Turks & Caicos is a criminal case of the former head Michael Misick of accepting millions in bribes. Both cases involve similar patterns and the similar cast of characters.
In 2009, a Hvar Association sent a letter to then Prime Minister Ivo Sanader pleading that he help. The Association filed two criminal charges against the government, the Croatian Privatisation Fund and the ORCO Group on November 10 and 17, 2008 outlining illegal activities in the contract, violation of human rights, disrespect of private property, Church property, city property, plus corruption and money laundering, which they explained in 16 counts of their charges.
Creal adds, “This new world of moving money and techniques that are deployed to accomplish illegal activities. To stop it requires the same creativity and that is what my team has and will definitely use.”
