"Meet "Willie West" , "William West", "Theordore Willie West" - and possibly Willie Phillips"Thought I would keep going on this
If you search any of the names above and in here, you will find the bigger picture with other names connected to them all but basically it was a rort that came to a head when some of the people involved were caught. Some were never held accountable because Solicitors, detectives, politicians, some of Aust top Racing Trainers, Celebrities etc etc were all connected to these criminals, either by buying into what they thought was a legit company/ companies or otherwise.
Another past business partner of convicted insider trader Rene Rivkin was "Richard" Vereker.
I will start with Vereker - the name associated to the family @Lord Peter Flimsy researched - the Mottynsden Oast clan who won't be called into the investigation into MB and AH - how are they related - RV wife is written in newspapers as 'visiting' the UK
@MrsWattle found a link to him and his association to all the players above -
IT WAS late in the evening when Hurstville detectives received an urgent call from the Police Integrity Commission. During an investigation into police corruption, the commission had intercepted a phone call that indicated a kidnapped man was being tortured in a Hurstville flat.www.smh.com.au
I wont get into the full stories of them all as they are a powerhouse so just being careful - look it all up....
- these are the big boys and IMO, AH is one of the little boys - as he said to Monique "big toddlers are kings in small puddles" - HE MIGHT BE A FOOT SOLDIER

RV - a former butcher, bookmaker, and Wollongong businessman and failed hotelier with his socialite wife and corrupt son - scroll down:
When his meat company went into liquidation in 1993, owing more than a million dollars RV fled overseas where he started selling meat pies in Hungary...... INTERSTING PLACE TO RUN TO......front for money laundering
''Investigators have discovered RV had a gambling history and that's the other reason why he's not going to return to this country.''
There is more on the V family in connection to a fake gallery but I will just keep on this trail with the business partners of old salt Rivkin so it doesnt get confusing, its like a spiders web!!!
Shonky Broker R Rivkin had his hand in another pie with a group who also had invested interests from the same high flyers as above - the racing industry is a huge part in this.
And this company was Spedley merchant banking group and Spedley Securities Ltd - There are dozens of articles about it all if you do a search.
FOR a man accustomed to the better things in life, facing a local court in Sydney next week will be a distinct come-down for Brian Yuill.www.afr.com
Financial dexterity and the ability to maintain an air of credibility seem to have been the special talents of the former head of the devastated Spedley merchant banking group, Brian Yuill. He managed to sustain his companies through two years of desperate dealing until they finally went down in...www.afr.com
Yuills was an "old boy" of another merchant bank, Martin Corporation, now CIBC Australia Ltd, working there in the early 1970s.
Spedley's co-founder, Ken Hawkins, the former head of the failed Rothwells merchant bank
Meet Ken Hawkins - who seemed to have the same address as AH Sir Thomas Mitchell Road Bondi Beach
Meet "Willie West" , "William West", "Theordore Willie West" - and possibly Willie Phillips
Willie West of stockbroking firm Potts West Trumbull also worked at Martin Corp and his Sydney-based partner, Brent Potts, did work for Spedley after being introduced to Yuill via his good mate Rene Rivkin.
Brian Yuill as head of Rothwells Ltd. It would have been a splendidly bizarre addition to the circles within circles that made the fall of the Spedley empire such a corporate fiasco.www.afr.com

It wasn't just the Singapore futures operation that was badly managed.

The victory of Hungary's former Communists in elections in May may give pause to some foreign investors considering Budapest equities..But local stock analysts say not to worry. After all, it was these same politicians who first permitted equity issueswww.nytimes.com

Inquest into the Disappearance and Suspected Death of Marion BARTER
Lismore Local Court, 9 – 11 Zadoc St, Lismore
Before her Honour Magistrate O’Sullivan, State Coroner
AC - Was it your understanding he was born in Belgium?
DdeH - Sorry?
AC - Was it you understanding he was born in Belgium?
DdeH - Um, that’s what THEY said, yeh
The corrupt cop Childs is my suspicionI've been listening to the inquest again and I've been wondering, how did the bank teller know that Marion didn't want to be contacted by family before the missing persons had contacted them? I also would like JOs ex husband to speak about what him and RB would talk about.
I just wanted to clarify. These names Willie West" , "William West", "Theordore Willie West" - and possibly Willie Phillips" mentioned have not been proven to be RB aliases."Meet "Willie West" , "William West", "Theordore Willie West" - and possibly Willie Phillips"
Great finds Mishy! these names are strange and sound familiar don't they!
I cant find a photo or any info about this Willie West stockbroker partner.
Maybe some of the other stockbrokers could clarify.
RB did tell some of his victims he was a multi home owner, merchant banker, and had bank manager friends in Sydney. Paribas?
Common threads with these stories
* Multiple names/ aliases.
* Eastern suburbs of Sydney
* Crime and corruption
* Money, Greed and embezzlement.
Wow.I’m reminded of this older post from member Peralta:
I think Marion's money was funnelled into timeshare/retirement property investments. It might explain why Marion said she was considering downsizing her home to buy something closer to the beach (she was already seduced into the scam). And also why:
If you were interested in scamming an Australian in 1997, the mid east coast was the place to be. It was a hotbed of fraudulent activity.
- a 'Remakel' worked at Trenwest (a timeshare company) between 2001 and 2004
- a random Remakel family from Luxembourg allegedly has endless international property investment companies with potential links to the Panama Papers
- some people surrounding the case also ended up working in timeshare/retirement property investment
- some locals (Graham Patrick Higgins) were convicted for defrauding people out of their timeshare/retirement property payments
- several high profile fraudsters (Paul Joseph McMahon, Goran Markovic) were around there at similar times
- a foreign man living in the area would be compelled to place an ad in the paper, 'seeking stylish and classy woman with view to marriage'.
If you want to know more about the Panama Papers (and the world of financial fraud), check out the movie The Laundromat with Meryl Streep.
However, I still think Marion was miserable and compromised at school, and whatever was going on there pushed her into an even worse situation. They may or may not be linked. But both can be true at the same time.
Rightly or wrongly in my mind I triangulate RB, GC and GP Higgins (worked at Byron Bay bank around the time of Marion’s disappearance) but we’ve seen the inquests keep a very tight focus. Will see what comes out of the next few days.
Yes all the best to SL!Quote from TLV page this morning
"Tomorrow the inquest resumes in Lismore and then I can promise you my friends, it’ll be like a dam breaking! "
.....ONE MORE SLEEP!!
I think we are all like little kids on here! Waiting restlessly on Christmas Eve, or for Purim, or Eid-al Fitr!! WE MUST GET A GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP TONIGHT, PEOPLE!!
Link is up!
