NEW YORK — Six corporate executives and six corporate entities were indicted Tuesday on charges of conspiracy to commit securities fraud, tax fraud, and money laundering. The indictment was unsealed in federal court in Brooklyn, New York. The indictments and arrests come as a result of an extensive joint investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), the Internal Revenue Service, Criminal Investigations (IRS-CI) and the FBI.
Court papers reveal the defendants created three brokerage firms in Belize to assist U.S. citizens' investment schemes of publicly traded companies.
