Antigua Gov’t and WICB move to buy Stanford Cricket Grounds

The government and the West Indies Cricket Board have partnered to purchase the Stanford Cricket Grounds and surrounding properties for US$7.5 million.

The joint venture, which will see the government owning 40 per cent of the shares to WICB’s 60 per cent stake, is expected to attract more premier sporting events.

Under the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), a company called Coolidge Cricket Grounds Inc was formed and will jointly owned by the government and WICB.

Both entities under the MOU will acquire certain properties in Coolidge and Barnes Hill (four parcels of land), which were held by the disgraced investor R Allen Stanford, and which are in the hands of court-appointed liquidators. They include the Car Park, Sticky Wicket Restaurant and The Athletics Club.

Lawmakers press DOJ to help victims of Ponzi scheme

Seven lawmakers on Monday asked the Justice Department to investigate whether a Swiss bank is illegally blocking the transfer of restitution funds for victims of the second-largest Ponzi scheme in United States history.

In a Monday letter, representatives from both parties asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions to review whether Swiss bank Societe Generale is complying with a 2013 settlement meant to return a major portion of $210 million to victims of Allen Stanford’s pyramid investment scheme.

The lawmakers asked Sessions “to review this issue and re-engage on behalf of U.S. victims to expedite the return of the frozen assets so they can be properly distributed.”

Update on Receiver’s Lawsuit Against Former Stanford Financial Advisors

In March 2017, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals confirmed that the Receiver is not required to arbitrate his claims to recover payments to former Stanford financial advisors and other Stanford employees of proceeds generated from the sale of Stanford International Bank CDs. Following entry of judgment by the Court of Appeals, the Receiver returned to the District Court to pursue those claims. On June 15, 2017, the Receiver filed an amended complaint, consolidating several previously-filed complaints and identifying newly-discovered payments received by the defendants.

As amended, the Receiver’s complaint now seeks to recover more than $289 million from 313 former financial advisors and other Stanford employees. The Receiver alleges that the payments the defendants received were fraudulent transfers; that the defendants failed to provide reasonably equivalent value in exchange for the payments; and that the defendants did not take the payments in good faith. The Receiver also alleges that the defendants were unjustly enriched by the payments, at the expense of Stanford investors. The lawsuit seeks return of the payments, together with prejudgment interest and attorneys’ fees.

The District Court has set the Receiver’s claims for trial beginning in July 2018.
