Frederic Bourke's conviction on an FCPA conspiracy was upheld by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.
Bloomberg's David Glovin, who provided outstanding daily coverage of Frederic Bourke's 2009 FCPA-related trial, filed a story yesterday about new money laundering allegations against a key government witness, Hans Bodmer.
Bloomberg's David Glovin reported this month that Viktor Kozeny's Swiss lawyer who pleaded guilty in the U.S. to conspiracy to launder money was "reappointed to the board of a Swiss bank that the government said he used in the criminal scheme."
Frederick Bourke said prosecutors in his 2009 trial knew a crucial government witness would give false testimony but they let him take the stand anyway. Now Bourke wants a new trial.
The DOJ said the Bahamas government is hopeful that the Privy Council will hear and decide Viktor Kozeny's extradition case this year.
The Swiss lawyer who helped FCPA fugitive Viktor Kozeny move money and provided key testimony against Frederic Bourke is still waiting to be sentenced more than six years after pleading guilty.
