Xavier Justo-- Swiss 'Whistleblower' or Criminal?

In my continuing investigation of the Malaysian 1MBD rumor, brand-new information has arised that showcases an intricate web of intrigue, subterfuge and also corruption entailing the supposed 'Whistleblower' Xavier Andre Justo and also a Swiss prosecutor. Mr. Justo, a previous high-level staff member of PetroSaudi International SA, was jailed in Thailand for swiping a data source from his former company that broke the scandal. A Swiss district attorney that himself is presently under investigation for political corruption with a 'Dispute of Interest' attached to the case and a list of various other varied stars more proper of a Hollywood thriller than reality scenarios.

In my last post I reported on the 1MBD scandal's effect in Canada. In 2012, Malaysia's state-owned power company Petronas got Canada's Progression Power for a reported $5.5 billion. At the time it was one of Malaysia's biggest international financial investments. Provided the truth that the 1MBD scandal damaged after Petronas's hostile entryway to Canada's oil as well as gas market, I began researching and also reporting on the ramifications that corrupt foreign investors from establishing nations, such as Malaysia, may have in Canadian exclusive market sectors. I made a decision to concentrate originally on the major individual credited with 'breaking' the tale of the IMBD scandal - Xavier Andre Justo.

Getting to the bottom of this complicated event has been challenging. Basically, the center management of the business involved in the 1MBD scandal, are for the most part, scared to speak to journalists. Additionally, the leading rate executives of these companies will certainly also not take place the document. Last week, I ultimately found an unhappy previous exec of PetroSaudi International as well as two previous close friends of Mr. Justo's who were all kind enough to offer me some sorely needed history on the 'life and times' of Xavier Justo.

The previous Executive of PetroSaudi International talked with me on problem of privacy as well as additionally offered me with records, duplicates of sms message and other material to support his claims that Xavier Justo, far from being a 'kindness doer', is in fact he is a con-artist who appreciates the good life and has a narcotics abuse condition that consists of "heavy alcohol consumption as well as a great deal of drug." I am currently validating the product given to us concerning Mr. Justo as well as will be publishing even more passages quickly. He likewise bitterly chewed out PetroSaudi International for allowing Mr. Justo to climb in the firm ranks in spite of his widely known partying lifestyle. These claims were also validated by the 2 previous good friends of Mr. Justo, that were both jilted by him in individual loans that were never ever repaid.

In February of this year, PetroSaudi International's CEO Tarek Essam Ahmad Obaid, business Director Patrick Andrew Marc Mahony, and Malaysian questionable 'business person' Reduced Taek Jho were all prosecuted in Malaysia by the MACC (Malaysian Anti-Corruption Payment) over the 1MBD rumor. At the time, MACC proudly introduced this in a press release and that all 3 accused had been put on Interpol's 'Red Watch Checklist'. After an intensive week of examining the cases and also counterclaims in between Mr. Justo as well as PetroSaudi International, my study group as well as I have ended that Mr. Justo is an extreme go-getter with a prior criminal background that used his crucial placement at PetroSaudi International and his close friendship with CEO Tarek Obaid, to his very own benefit and that the 'traditional media was fooled by his attempt to make himself appear like an innocent 'whistleblower'.

Along with this, after inspecting Interpol's on-line 'Red Alert 'data source it has been verified that neither Mr. Obaid nor Mr. Mahony have been placed on Interpol's 'Red Watch List" which they are not 'desired fugitives' as recommended by numerous media outlets.

My investigation of Mr. Justo as well as from our sources kept in mind above, verified that he has no official college education and that during the mid-2000's, he had possession passions in some unethical clubs in Geneva. In 2006 Mr. Justo was restrained by Swiss Federal Authorities for opening and handling an account of a widely known Spanish contraband criminal gang. The account was frozen for criminal origin of funds and also cash laundering by the Geneva Financial Criminal Offense Authorities.

Mr. Justo was held for over 18 http://www.bbc.co.uk/search?q=Xavier Justo hrs and was only launched after he, according to former friends, provided testament against the participants of the criminal gang he was benefiting. Surprisingly, he was released without charges.

PetroSaudi International's Chief Executive Officer Tarek Obaid, is a twin resident of Switzerland and Saudi Arabia and also finished from Georgetown College's respected College of Foreign Service. Before the 1MBD scandal Mr. Obaid had actually never ever been charged with a criminal offense in any type of nation. According to the previous PetroSaudi International Executive and also previous buddies of Mr. Justo that I spoke with, Mr. Obaid satisfied Mr. Justo on a basketball court when he was a 15-year-old that just come in to Switzerland. They struck up a deep relationship as Justo himself is a descendant of immigrant parents. Justo worked as a mentor to Mr. Obaid, his peer in business as well as life in Switzerland during both of their youths. Years later on, Mr. Obaid offered Mr. Justo lower level jobs to help him maintain himself as well as his family members due to Mr. Justo's unfortunate financial scenarios. In these work Mr. Justo was employed in various settings as a concierge, a vehicle valet and taking care of tiny petty cash purchases for Mr. Obaid's office as well as member of the family.

The mainstream media portraits of Mr. Justo being an 'International Lender' is incorrect; while he did operate in a couple of financial institutions as a low-level clerk, he was never a 'lender' neither has he held any type of elderly placement in any Swiss or various other EU bank. He additionally doesn't have the proper education or training for that sort of task. From documents that we are still assessing, it is clear he fell short to open up a checking account in several countries to receive the settlement for the swiped information, which offer his claim to be an 'International lender' in a ridicules light.

Xavier Andre Justo individual life was, as we were told, highly unstable. Mr. Justo was married to Daphné Smits for some years. According to friends of Mr. Justo, while he worked as a staff at Banque Scandinave en Suisse (BSS) in Geneva, he had sexual experiences with his Manager's partner. A few months later Mr. Justo apparently had another affair with the partner of his buddy and was caught in the act. Therefore, his spouse Daphné divorced him and took all his cash. Then Justo started a charming partnership with Laura (his existing better half) that he met when she was an assistant at the company where he was working at the moment.

In the meantime, Mr. Justo obtained heavily depressed and also was afraid of retaliation by the contraband criminal gang. Mr. Justo, and also his after that sweetheart, Laura escaped to Thailand and according to a previous friend, "took all the money from his Mommy's bank account to pay for the trip"

After remaining in Thailand for several months, Mr. Justo called Mr. Obaid and told him he was experiencing an absence of earnings and also was "hopeless" to sustain his family.

In mid-2010, Mr. Obaid determined to give Mr. Justo another possibility and offered him a new task with PetroSaudi International in London on the problem that Mr. Justo dedicate to stop his habitual cocaine behavior and alcohol abuse. Mr. Justo readily concurred. With Swiss Attorney General a substantial wage bundle of 400,000 British Extra pounds annually that consisted of a fully paid plush apartment in Mayfair, Mr. Justo's life took a turn right and also his job was back on course.

Mr. Obaid, that extremely trusted Mr. Justo his youth pal, was focused on growing his worldwide procedures and also required somebody in London he can trust to authorize corporate documents on his part, conduct routine office banking and also various other mundane management functions when Mr. Obaid was not in town.

More investigations of Mr. Justo's and Mr. Obaid's partnership disclose the amazing count on that the former taken into the last.

From the many papers we are currently confirming, one of them is a genuine duplicate of Mr. Justo's employment contract with PetroSaudi International (below).

One of the previous pals of Mr. Justo's that I interviewed specified that he couldn't think that Xavier had actually been offered such a high level wage and also count on that business (PetroSaudi International) ... I bear in mind one time we were hanging out at Zumas in Knights Bridge as well as he spent for our meal and all the bevi's on a firm bank card ... the bill was outrageous ...".

The previous PetroSaudi International Executive we talked with validated that within the company Mr. Justo was understood to constant high-priced London haunts in Knightsbridge and Covent Garden 2 of London's most special areas. (Zuma is a costly Japanese dining establishment). The previous Executive likewise included that he advised Mr. Obaid numerous times concerning Mr. Justo's social actions and ballooning expense accounts but that he (Mr. Obaid) "wouldn't become aware of it ... Tarek trusted this guy because he was a kid but never ever truly recognized him ... Mr.

Obaid was premature, and also had bad judgment when it concerned childhood close friends, it created a great deal of stress in the office ... it was so damn dumb ... I could not take it anymore.".

Mr. Justo obtained a 3-year prison sentence in Thailand in 2015 after being founded guilty of extortion, blackmailing as well as theft of PetroSaudi International's data source. A crime he conveniently confessed to.

According to court testimony and also evidence offered by numerous witnesses, Mr. Justo's work efficiency seriously tatty in late 2010 with a number of absences and also alcoholic binges that consisted of inappropriate behavior in the workplace. After that initially of April 2011 he missed out on a flight from London to New york city city where he was due to meet a major customer along with the shareholders of PetroSaudi International.

Witnesses later validated that Mr. Justo was high up on drug as well as very intoxicated the night before the trip. When he stopped working to appear to the conference in New York, he was summarily disregarded from his placement.

It was later on validated via a forensic investigation that Mr. Justo swiped PetroSaudi International's database and also made the last download of the 90Gb data 24h after he was fired over the phone. This is the day that the 1MBD scandal began.

Xavier Andre Justo's criminal actions and also indulgent drug habit sparked the world's largest economic scandal, reduced the Malaysian government, initiated criminal proceedings in Switzerland, Singapore, the EU and also the USA as well as set you back the Malaysian people billions of dollars.

It is time the complete reality comes to light on this story.

With this thought in mind, I will be publishing even more posts over the coming days and also weeks concerning the 1MBD scandal as well as publishing 'never-seen-before' papers that will provide my readers a clear understanding on how a reduced level staff member, that had a regular drug and alcohol abuse trouble, was able to ignite among the biggest monetary detractions in modern background.
