The US Department of Justice has come up with its subsequent objections against the Black Friday defendants on Tuesday, through necessary changes in the civil case. It sheds light on the unethical acts of FTP’s top executives, including misappropriation of its funds towards their own gains. Howard Lederer and Ray Bitar; the erstwhile directors of Full Tilt Poker, i.e. FTP may be charged with considerable fine. It goes on to say that FTP accounts were manipulated by Lederer who diverted approx $44.3m to his own bank accounts during Dec, 2006 – Sep, 2011. This fresh charge strengthened the previous one that pointed out towards embezzlement of FTP funds & gamblers’ deposits by Lederer and other FTP associates despite deteriorating condition of house of cards. Lederer is alleged to have invested $10m for building the grand Las Vegas guest-house & luxurious residence, purchase of 1965 Shelby Cobra & Maserati Gran Turismo flash cars and $37k for a pension scheme.
The FTP executives have violated the terms of the 1961 Travel Act, says the fresh complaint. They have been charged with misuse of the facilities and mail meant for interstate / foreign trade. It states that the laws of New York, Florida, Utah, Oregon, Ohio, Nevada, California, Michigan, Florida and Connecticut and Nevada have since been broken under the Travel Act.
As per the fresh move by the Department of Justice, Rafe Furst are to be fined an amount of $11.7m, Chris Jesus Ferguson - $42m, Lederer - $42.5m and Bitar $40.8m respectively. They may even be asked to pay the costs of the case initiated by the department. Ferguson and Lederer roam freely around the US at present while Bitar is on bail and has to face his trial by the court.
While plans are in the pipeline for introduction of new FTP by PokerStars by sixth of November, it is making advertisements for seeking assistance to run Rational FT Services, the new venture that puts up at Dublin offices was occupied by Pocket Kings in the past. It has asked for IT staff and marketing personnel, so any one desirous of rendering such service may inquire with it.
