#2372: Marine Brief WSJ – Matthias Bookmaker’s Islamic Net – Clinton Wiretaps FIFA Bets – White’s Club Spot Fixed 8(a) Deaths
1. In 1994, Matthias Chang – author of The Shadow Moneylenders – set up a bookmaker call-center network in Kuala Lumpur to handle gaming by Dr. Mahatir Mohamad’s Islamic State (previously al-Qaeda) at various foreign-exchange, major-sports and mass-casualty events.
2. In 1994, the Clinton administration began using The Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA) as a justification to wiretap spread betting on FIFA events where racketeering bookmakers would allegedly collect a vigorish (vig) to be shared with the contract killers of whistleblowers.
3. White’s Club’s David Cameron allegedly used the Islamic bookmaker’s network (Scicom / Verint), Clinton wiretaps (CALEA / Tor) and Serco 8(a) protégé companies to spot fix the number and timing of deaths in the U.S. East African Embassies on August 7, 1998 and MH Flight 17 in East Ukraine on June 17, 2014.
McConnell met Chang in April 2014 to discuss the disappearance of MH 370 and after continued research, he now believes that Chang withheld information on the existence of an Islamic State bookmaker call center in Kuala Lumpur which would otherwise have explained the role of the Clinton wiretaps and Serco 8(a) companies in the hijack of MH 370 and prevented the spot-fixed deaths on MH Flight 17.
“Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 (MH17/MAS17)[a] was a scheduled international passenger flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur that crashed on 17 July 2014 after being shot down, killing all 283 passengers and 15 crew on board. The Boeing 777-200ERairliner lost contact about 50 km (31 mi) from the Ukraine–Russia border and crashed near Torez in Donetsk Oblast, Ukraine, 40 km (25 mi) from the border.“

“MALAYSIA’S former prime minister Mahathir Mohamad has become the first prominent international figure to respond to the Paris murders by primarily criticising the victims.
While adding, “I do not condone these killings”, he said in Kuala Lumpur about the Charlie Hebdo victims: “They committed despicable acts such as insulting prophet Mohammed”.
They did not respect Islam, said Dr Mahathir — who was described by then Australian prime minister Paul Keating as “recalcitrant” in 1993.”
“Dr Mahathir: Nation’s No. 1 gambler
Even if we do not view gambling as part of normal human behaviour, it has certainly been part of Malaysian culture and politics – not only of the Chinese or non-Malay communities but for the majority of the country’s inhabitants, especially amongst the elite and leaders.
When Dr Mahathir Mohamad stated that he would have approved the sports betting licence for his long-time buddy Vincent Tan, he was being unduly coy and modest in leaving out his own addiction to trying to beat the odds.
In fact, gambling has long been a part of Dr Mahathir’s strategy to make Malaysia a developed nation. It is well known that Mahathir in his first year as prime minister gambled in the tin market with disastrous results. Speculating in tin caused Malaysia – then the world’s leading tin producer – about RM660.5 million in losses.
This staggering loss does not appear to have cooled off the gambling habit of our prime minister at that time. Using Bank Negara money, Mahathir speculated in currency, principally on the British pound which resulted in an even bigger multi-billion ringgit loss when the sterling collapsed in 1992. Estimates of this loss have placed it at over RM30 billion.
The details of Mahathir’s super high stakes betting which went dreadfully wrong have been given some attention in Barry Wain’s book, ‘Malaysian Maverick’. It could be that it was this content rather than any other part that led the Malaysian authorities to think twice about permitting the book’s distribution in the country.”
“On 21 September 1990, BNM sold between $500 million and $1 billion worth of pound sterlings in a short period, driving the pound down 4 cents on the dollar (Millman, p. 228). In response, bankers began front running Bank Negara’s orders. Two years later on Black Wednesday, Bank Negara attempted to defend the value of the British pound against attempts by George Soros and others to devalue the pound sterling. George Soros won and Bank Negara reportedly suffered losses of more than US$4 billion.  Bank Negara lost an additional $2.2 billion in speculative trading a year later (Millman, p. 229). By 1994, the bank became technically insolvent and was bailed out by the Malaysian Finance Ministry (Millman, p. 229).”

software provides law enforcement agencies with the ability to monitor and
analyze voice, video, and data for a “vast number of targets” on all
types of large, complex computer networks, in order to collect evidence
for CALEA wiretaps. Multiple national governments including the U.S., U.K., and
various European, Asian, and Pacific nations have purchased millions of dollars
in Verint surveillance software and equipment.
On January 27, 1997,
Comverse Technology Inc. announced the formation of a new private equity fund
in partnership with Quantum Industrial Holdings Ltd.
Verint has also received millions of dollars in government contracts to
outfit airports, shipping ports, and government facilities with intelligent video surveillance systems with tracking, biometrics, and video analysis features. For example, Unisys chose Verint as a subcontractor on its contract with the Transportation Security Administration, to install video surveillance devices in secure areas of airports across the U.S.
In 2011, Verint
announced the launch of enhancements to its Nextiva Video Business Intelligence solution. The solution is part of the Nextiva IP Video portfolio from Verint
Video Intelligence solutions.“

“The Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA) is a United States wiretapping law passed in 1994, during
the presidency of Bill Clinton (Pub. L. No. 103-414, 108 Stat. 4279, codified at 47 USC 1001-1010).
CALEA’s purpose is to
enhance the ability of law enforcement agencies to conduct electronic surveillance by requiring that telecommunications carriers and manufacturers of telecommunications equipment modify and design their equipment, facilities, and services to ensure that they have built-in surveillance capabilities, allowing federal agencies to wiretap any telephone traffic; it has since been extended to cover broadband internet and VoIP traffic. Some government agencies argue that it covers monitoring communications rather than just tapping specific lines and that not all CALEA-based access requires a warrant.
The original reason for adopting CALEA was the Federal Bureau of Investigation‘s worry that increasing use of digital telephone exchange switches would make tapping phones at the phone company’s central office harder and slower to execute, or in some cases impossible. Since the original requirement to add CALEA-compliant interfaces required phone companies to modify or replace hardware and software in their systems, U.S.
Congress included funding for a limited time period to cover such network upgrades. CALEA was passed into law on October 25, 1994 and came into force on January 1, 1995.
In the years since CALEA was passed it has been greatly expanded to include all VoIP and broadband internet traffic. From 2004 to 2007 there was a 62 percent growth in the number of wiretaps performed under CALEA — and more than 3,000 percent growth in interception of internet data such as email.

Their parent company has been in business since 1886, owns over 2100 brick and mortar UK betting shops, and is publicly-listed on the London Stock Exchange. We will cover their impressive history in depth.
It Began in Ladbroke
Depending upon where you live in the world, the brand name Ladbrokes might seem odd. The name, however, is derived from the village of Ladbroke, located about 2 miles (3.2 km) south of Southam in Warwickshire, England, UK. The founder, W. H. Schwind (nickname: Harry / legal name: Messrs), once lived in the Ladbroke House (now part of the University of North London) and trained horses from Ladbroke Hall, now a listed building (UK’s equivalent of what the US calls a Historic Landmark). The third partner of Ladbrokes, Arthur Bendir suggested the name during his first visit upon seeing Ladbroke Hall on a sign post.
The Start of Ladbrokes
Without an official name, the company started in 1886 when a man known only as Pennington went into partnership with Mr. Schwind. The former bet horses were trained by the latter. In 1902, a bookmaker named Arthur Bendir joined the partnership; under the name Ladbrokes, they took on a new model. Rather than just backing horses, they changed their focus to laying them: working as both punters and as a bookmaker. Bendir’s vision for the company was to service an elite clientele; with that, he was a big success.
The majority of Ladbrokes’ early clients were members of such clubs as the Whites, the Carlton, and the
Athenaeum. After moving their offices from Hanover Square to Six Old Burlington Street, Mayfair in 1913, Ladbrokes began focusing on attracting punters from
the tracks. In doing so, they recruited a female decedent of a noble Scottish family named Helen Vernet. Extremely unique, she became their on track
representative, earning a place in history as the first lady bookmaker. Ms. Vernet became a partner in Ladbrokes in 1918 and spent many years as the face of the company.”

“FIFA’s Match-Fixing Problem A Convicted Fixer Says Soccer Isn’t Doing Enough to Fight Corruption… Wilson Raj Perumal, a convicted soccer match
fixer who acknowledges rigging games from Africa to the Arctic Circle for an Asian betting syndicate, says that FIFA, global soccer’s governing body, isn’t
taking anything beyond the most basic steps to combat match manipulation in international soccer.
“If FIFA really wanted to do something, they could,” Perumal said in a recent interview, his first media interview since his arrest in Finland in 2011.
Perumal, who spoke from Hungary where he is testifying against former associates in a match-fixing trial, said he spent the better part of two decades buying off players, referees and other officials to fix the outcomes of matches—mostly “friendlies,” or exhibition matches between national teams—for an
Asian gambling racket. Since his arrest, and the April publication of his memoir “Kelong Kings” (kelong is a slang term for cheating in Singapore and Malaysia), FIFA has taken fire for allegedly allowing its 209 member associations too much
leeway to police themselves.”
“As FIFA allegations swirled, Clintons gave Qatar a stage — and legitimacyClinton Global Initiative hosts Qatar officials in 2013(5:08) The Clinton Global Initiative welcomed Hassan Abdulla Al Thawadi of the Qatar 2022 Supreme Committee and Fahad bin Mohammed Al-Attiya of the Qatar National Food Security Program to discuss the 2022 World Cup at their 2013 annual meeting.
(YouTube/Clinton Global Initiative)By Rosalind S. Helderman June 3 at 5:58 PM During the closing session of the Clinton Global Initiative’s 2013 annual meeting, Bill Clinton called to the stage a former rival named Hassan Abdullah Al-Thawadi.
Three years earlier, Al-Thawadi, a young Qatari businessman, had led his country’s successful effort to host the 2022 soccer World Cup, beating out, among others, a U.S. bid led by Clinton. Al-Thawadi and his countrymen had rejoiced after they were awarded the tournament in an auditorium in Zurich, while elsewhere in the room Clinton and his team stewed.
Allegations that Qatar had bribed its way to the victory soon emerged, prompting an internal investigation by soccer’s governing body that had been going on for more than a year by the time of the CGI event.
At the gathering, Clinton stood on stage as Al-Thawadi talked with pride about plans to use technology developed for Qatari soccer stadiums to cool greenhouses and feed the hungry.
“We bid on the belief that the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar will act as a catalyst for positive change in Qatar, in the Middle East as well as beyond,” Al-Thawadi said in New York that September day, before posing for a picture with Clinton and another Qatari official, according to a video of the event posted online.
For the Qataris, the moment offered a touch of Clinton-blessed legitimacy amid a brewing controversy. For the Clinton Foundation, it came with a major donation.
A foundation official said the Qatar 2022 Supreme Committee headed by Al-Thawadi “sponsored” the 2013 CGI event, a status that generally requires a donation of at least $250,000.
But many sponsors pay more, particularly those who wish to share the stage with the former president, according to several people familiar with the foundation’s practices. A foundation spokesman said sponsors are featured on stage based on the merit of their charitable commitments and not the size of their donations.
The Qatar donation has drawn attention amid a burgeoning international soccer scandal. Last week, federal prosecutors in the United States charged 14 people with bribery, fraud and other charges, alleging that the sport has been rife with corruption for two decades. Swiss authorities announced they are also specifically investigating Qatar’s bid.”
