MOSCOW 2/02/2011 — Masked policemen raided Deutsche Bank’s main Moscow office on Wednesday, questioning bankers and unnerving employees. Police said they were searching for documents in a real estate deal linked to a member of the Russian Parliament, now living in exile in the United States. The parliamentarian, Ashot Yegisaryan, had business dealings with companies tied to the former mayor of Moscow, Yuri M. Luzhkov, who fell from favor and resigned last fall.
The committee said it suspected an aide to Ashot Yegiazaryan aka Ashot Yegisaryan of embezzling $87.5 million from a company overseeing the hotel construction that Deutsche Bank had partly financed. The company, in turn, was fully owned by the city government, the committee said. (Deutsche Bank provided banking facilities for the Gestapo during WWII, the Gestapo was the secret police force of Nazi Germany).
In the investigation Mr. Yegiazaryan is accused of the attempted theft of $87.5 million as part of the reconstruction of the hotel, known in Russian as Moskva, from Finans, a company fully controlled by the capital city’s government, according to a statement published on the investigating committee’s website. http://www.sledcom.ru/news/41497.html?print=1
Deutsche Bank operations in Germany; After Adolf Hitler came to power, instituting the Third Reich, Deutsche Bank dismissed its three Jewish board members in 1933. In subsequent years Deutsche Bank took part in the aryanization of Jewish-owned businesses: according to its own historians, the bank was involved in 363 such confiscations by November 1938. During the war, Deutsche Bank incorporated other banks that fell into German hands during the occupation of Eastern Europe.
Following Germany’s defeat in World War II the Allied authorities, in 1948, ordered Deutsche Bank’s break-up into ten regional banks. These 10 regional banks were later consolidated into three major banks in 1952: Norddeutsche Bank AG; Süddeutsche Bank AG; and Rheinisch-Westfälische Bank AG. In 1957, these three banks merged to form Deutsche Bank AG with its headquarters in Frankfurt.
Spying Scandal; Deutsche Bank’s “Gestapo Style Corporate Security Department”. Deutsche provided banking facilities for the Gestapo during WWII. From as late as 2001 to at least 2007, Deutsche Bank engaged in covert espionage on its critics. The bank has admitted to episodes of spying in 2001 and 2007 directed by its “Gestapo Style corporate security department”, although characterizing them as “isolated.”
BERLIN August 3, 2009 (Wall Street Journal) – “DEUTSCHE BANK Gestapo Style Corporate Security Department”. A detective at the center of the Deutsche Bank AG spying affair says the international banking giant’s effort to monitor its critics was more extensive than previously disclosed in that it involved a plan to target as many as 20 people, including a number of investors.
The detective’s statements appear to contradict the bank’s assertion that the spying affair was limited in scope. The affair came to light in May when Deutsche Bank said it had discovered efforts involving “questionable investigative or surveillance activities” directed by its corporate security department and outside contractors. It has so far disclosed four separate incidents involving its agents between 2001 and 2007 in which the bank used the detective, Bernd Bühner, and others to monitor people affiliated with the bank.
Though the spying activity originated in Germany, the implications for Deutsche Bank are global. The bank earns most of its profit outside of Germany at its bases in London and the U.S., where bank officials have found themselves trying to explain the affair to uneasy clients and regulators, including the Securities and Exchange Commission. Mr. Bühner, a contractor who played a key role in most of the operations under scrutiny, told The Wall Street Journal in an interview that he received a list of names in 2006 at a meeting with Deutsche Bank representatives that included members of the bank’s legal department.
“They had the names ready. A paper with the list of names was prepared by the bank in advance of a meeting with bank officials,” Mr. Bühner said. The bank has said the spying was directed by its corporate security department but has made no mention of its legal department’s involvement. “The bank has taken steps to strengthen controls for the mandating of external service providers by its Corporate Security Advisors. All four incidents originated from mandates initiated to achieve legitimate goals,” the Deutsche Bank statement said.
Judge: Deutsche Bank does “crappy work” on US foreclosures. Deutsche Bank, however, America’s Foreclosure King, is pressing on in its efforts to evict tens of thousands Americans from their homes, even though the bank’s awful documentation practices are being increasingly challenged in court. One judge in Brooklyn is fed up with Deutsche Banks “crappy work”: Judge Schack – the scourge of numerous banks and poorly prepared attorneys — has thrown out dozens of foreclosure applications … I’m not the creator of this mess,” he complained.
From a search of the Florida Division of Corporations records it is learned that Deutsche Bank National Trust Company purchased Bankers Trust Co of Florida N.A. in 2002 and the name was changed to Deutsche Bank Florida N.A., the name was changed again to Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas (in Florida), this is an active Florida Foreign Corporation with the principal address as 60 Wall Street NYC60-4006 New York NY 10005.
