In March 2020, the German payment expert Ruben Weigand and the so-called “porn baron” Hamid “Ray” Akhavan have been arrested in California on charges of running a global money-laundering scheme. The center of this scheme is one of the largest on-demand marijuana marketplaces in the US, Eaze Technologies Inc. Both pleaded not guilty but remained in custody at a jail in California. Both have already been involved in the mega-money-laundering scheme of FBME Bank. And yes, there is a rather close connection to Wirecard. Consequently, Markus Braun war arrested again today.
The Wirecard case literally gets crazier by the minute. Continuously, we are fed with rumors of ever more fantastic or criminal activities in which the German DAX company and its responsible managers are said to be involved are spreading.We have recently heard that a raid was also carried out on Wirecard’s offices in Dublin, Ireland. Apparently also due to a money laundering report by the European Funds Recovery Initiative (EFRI).
