Papadopoulos’ wife claims he pleaded guilty to ‘avoid being charged as unregistered agent of Israel’

George Papadopoulos

    

Special Counsel Robert Mueller threatened to charge former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos as an unregistered agent of Israel, according to his wife.

Simona Mangiante Papadopoulos, an Italian attorney who married Papadopoulos roughly 90 days ago, claimed that Mueller had evidence her husband had worked on behalf of Israel without registering as a foreign agent during his time as an energy consultant, and prior to joining the Trump campaign. The claim was made in interviews with the Daily Caller and the Washington Post – where Simona also said George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to avoid the Israel-linked charges.

“I know he doesn’t have anything to do with Russia,” she told The Post. “We know he was under scrutiny because of his ties to Israel, not his ties to Russia. So what’s this about?”

In October 2015, Papadopoulos wrote a column for the Israeli publication Haaretz entitled “Natural Gas Isn’t Just about Israel.” He also attended a series of energy conferences in Israel, including one held in April 2016, just days after he was named to Trump’s campaign, according to Israeli media accounts.

During those years, he became acquainted with Eli Groner, who has served since 2015 as a top aide to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.WaPo

Simona’s new claims are vastly different than what she said in January before she and George married – when she suggested to the Washington Post that Papadopoulos would be remembered like John Dean, the former White House counsel who flipped on Nixon’s administration and became a key witness.

“There’s a lot to come,” she said then. “He was the first one to break a hole on all of this.”

On Tuesday, however, her tune had changed – saying that her earlier comments were misinterpreted and that she and George had reassessed events after learning that Cambridge professor Stefan Halper had been conducting espionage on the Trump campaign for the FBI. Halper hired Papadopoulos to write an energy paper in London in the fall of 2016, paying him $3,000 for his efforts.

George took responsibility for lying to the FBI and cooperated with the government. Cooperating doesn’t mean following an agenda,” she said. “Cooperating doesn’t mean against the president. . . . It means cooperating with the truth.”

Simona says George has been wronged and deserves a pardon from President Trump – that he is “a victim, honestly,” who “made a mistake. He pleaded guilty for that mistake. It would make sense for the president to pardon him.”

Before joining the Trump campaign in March 2016 as a foreign policy advisor, George Papadopoulos lived in London, working as a researcher for the Hudson Institute think tank, and later as an independent energy consultant. Despite his work on Israel, Cyprus and Greece while at the Hudson Institute, a person familiar with the Institute told the Washington Post that nobody from the Special Counsel’s office has ever contacted them regarding Papadopoulos’s work there.

Meanwhile, it was Papadopoulos’ May 10 alleged “drunken barroom admission” to former Australian diplomat Alexander Downer that the Russians had information which “could be damaging” to Hillary Clinton. Papadopolous was originally told of the alleged Russian plot two weeks earlier on April 26, by Maltese professor Joseph Mifsud (missing since October 2017) – whose organization George Papadopoulos met his wife through.

Which brings us to an interesting thread

Noting that Papadopoulos and his new wife met on LinkedIn, Twitter user @rising_serpent makes the case that some things just aren’t adding up. The 27-part tweetstorm is condensed underneath the first post:

2. That connection was Joseph Mifsud, a most mysterious former Maltese government official who ran an institute called the London Centre of International Law Practice in Britain. THE Joseph Mifsud now made infamous by her husbands indictment by Robert Muller.

3. Mangiante, started working at the organization after meeting Mifsud while she was employed at European Parliament in Brussels. Papadopoulos, who had worked for Mifsud’s organization as well, reached out to say he liked her profile picture.

4. Mangiante left the London Centre of International law after three months, after concluding the law office was “a facade for something else.” But the two continued to talk over the Internet, before meeting in person for the first time in New York in spring 2017.

5. Mangiante was introduced to Mifsud in 2012 by Gianni Pittella, a well-known Italian MEP who in 2014 became president of the Socialists and Progressive Democrats group. “I always saw Mifsud with Pittella,” So, Mangiante knew Mifsud for many years before she did Papadopoulos

6. Mangiante worked for 2 European parliament officials, Mairead McGuinness, a vice-president & McGuinness’s Italian predecessor Roberta Angelilli. She was also admin to home affairs committee under Martin Schulz, then a German MEP & now leader of Germany’s Social Democrats

7. So Mangiante moved within the corridors of power within Europe’s Italian Democrats & German social democrats. When her contract expired, Pittella suggested she go work for Mifsud in London who offered her a job in 2016 at the London Centre of International Law Practice

8. in September 2016, Mangiante received a message on the LinkedIn social network from George Papadopoulos. Papadopoulos had worked at the same London Center of International law centre briefly before joining Trump’s campaign. That was the beginning of their acquaintance.

9. It appears that Mangiante started her job around September 2016, the same time as she started corresponding with Papadopoulos. Mangiante was not happy with her work in London.

10. The entire institution seemed “fake”, “artificial”, with Mifsud interested solely in organising political meetings. “I didn’t smell a culture of academia” Mifsud’s diplomatic activity, Mangiante now believes, was a facade. “I never met any Russians there”

11. Mangiante quit her post there after three months, in November 2016. In the meantime, Mangiante’s romance with George began. After several unsuccessful efforts to get together in London, they met in March 2017 in New York. They hit it off, began dating and fell in love

12. Prior to meeting Mangiante, FBI had interviewed Papadopoulos Jan 2017 in connection with the collusion investigation. Papadopoulos gave federal agents a false account of his meetings with Mifsud. So he deleted his Facebook account and changed his cellphone number.

13. So almost 3 months prior to Papadopoulos actually meeting Mangiante he was already in the crosshairs of FBI, he was deleting facebook, changing phone numbers and like James Bond, was actively romancing a beautiful woman. Plausibility check # 1, what do you think ?

14. On the day Papadopoulos pleaded guilty, Mangiante was at her boyfriend’s family home in Chicago. There was a ring at the door. A casually dressed man informed her that he was a federal agent. He was serving her with a subpoena from Mueller.

15. Mangiante decided not to hire a lawyer after discovering they cost $800 an hour. She turned up alone at Chicago FBI headquarters.the FBI was interested in her relationship with Papadopoulos. Was it genuine? “They asked: “Do you love him?” “Yes”. They replied: ‘He is lucky'”

16. Plausibility check # 2. Do you think about how much lawyers cost when the FBI tells you that your boyfriend is chin deep in legal manure and you may be too? Stormy Daniels gets a lawyer for free, but someone being investigated by the FBI thinks about a lawyers cost?

17. March 2016 Papadopoulous learned he would be Trumps foreign policy advisors, he ended up meeting Mifusud on March 14 2016 while he was traveling in Italy (where Mangiante was, coincidentally). Important: He met Mifsud first in Italy, see indictment (click here)

18. Mifusd’s interest is piqued when he learned that Papadopoulos was going to be involved with the Trump campaign. They meet again subsequently in London on March 24th 2016 when Mifusd was accompanied by the “Putins niece” Olga Vinogradova, who like Mifsud has now disappeared.

19. Papadopoulos met Mifusd again on April 24th 2016 for breakfast at a London hotel. This is the first time that Mifsud tells him he knows the Russians have “dirt” on Hillary. Mind you the DNC leaks weren’t published till June/July 2016. Important point right there.

20. That DNC was hacked by the Russians remains a matter of great contention and those with exquisite expertise in cybersecurity don’t agree with the assertion that Russians hacked it. Remember the only people that conducted the investigation into the hack were CrowdStrike

21. Now we turn the bizarre dial to 11, why did Papadopoulos say to Mangiante when he was looking at her LinkedIn profile that they worked for the same company? Two things wrong with this: I couldn’t find any evidence that Paps worked for the London center of international law

22. and if he did, he would have known Mifsud from his work, so the whole theory of his being introduced to Mifusd falls flat.

23. The BIG question: by the time Papadopoulos began corresponding with Mangiante in Sept 2016, he was a part of the Trump Campaign, what was he looking at LinkedIn profiles of people working at the London center of international law for? What am I missing here?

24. I have more questions than answers, but the timeline just doesn’t add up, there is a lot missing here apart from my functioning neuronal circuitry. All of this is important in the context of Mangiante’s recent media blitz and her asking for Trump to pardon Papadopoulos.

25. Feel free to add to what I have just outlined. Things are not only a little askew here but seems that we are seeing this whole matter askance and many facts are obscured by layers of hearsay disguised as factual information. -fin.

26. Addendum: anybody else find it most peculiar that Mangiante worked for Italian and German social democrats? Especially now that we know that MI6 (Downer/Steele/Halper) were probably involved with the genesis of the Steele dossier?

27. Mifusud appears to be more aligned with the UK than he is with the Russians, Mangiante herself said so. Also she has since dialed down her touting of her husbands role in the Trump campaign, why?

Questions? An even deeper analysis into Papadopoulos and Mifsud can be found here.

NYC store security guard filmed tackling teen to the ground, charged with assault (VIDEO)

Video of the incident, which happened Friday night, shows the teen being pinned to the ground by three Century 21 security officers as the youth shouts out, ”What are you doing, I’m 18, I can’t breathe.” One of the security personnel appears to strike the teen with his fist.

In a longer video of the incident, also captured by Brian Fraser and posted on a friend’s Twitter account, security can be heard telling onlookers to move away for their own safety as a female friend threatens to call police.

“What are you doing to this black man? I’m calling the cops,” she shouts as the alleged thief, identified as Victor Roberson, is dragged along the sidewalk.

Roberson faces charges of petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property, for allegedly trying to steal two pairs of Prada shoes worth about $860. Before his arrest, he was taken by paramedics to New York Presbyterian Hospital for back and neck pain, according to NYPD, as reported by AM New York.

Two hours later, following a review of Fraser’s video, officers arrested one of the security guards, Acosta Wilson. They charged him with assault after determining that “excessive force” was used by the 24-year old, the NYPD said.

In a statement to NBC New York, Century 21’s Executive Director of Stores Larry Mentzer said the store is taking the situation “very seriously” and the security guard in question had been suspended pending an investigation. “We will continue to cooperate fully with law enforcement,” he added.

Doctor For Billionaire Sex Slave Ring NXIVM, Charged for Conducting Horrific Human Experiments

doctordoctor

New York, NY – Dr. Brandon Porter, a physician described as the resident doctor to the NXIVM sex trafficking cult, has been charged with conducting illegal human experiments by the New York medical oversight board.

The decision by the New York Department of Health comes after they initially refused to act on a complaint from former cult member Jennifer Kobelt, who claimed that she was forced to watch graphic dismemberment and rape videos as part of an alleged “fright study” Porter was conducting.

Kobelt, in her August 2017 complaint, alleged that Porter may have conducted his “fright study” on as many as 100 people.

“He continued to film my reaction for at least 10 minutes as I just sat there, dry heaving like I was going to puke and crying very hard,” Kobelt said in her complaint to the Health Department, adding that Porter began showing her the violent images without warning, according to a report from the New York Post.

“He failed me, not only as a friend but as the medical practitioner I had trusted on numerous occasions with my health while I was in New York,” Kobelt said in the complaint.

Amazingly, in a Sept. 6, 2017, letter to Koblet, the state Office of Professional Medical Conduct (OPMC) explained that they would not investigate Porter, specifying that “the issues you have described are not medical misconduct.”

Apparently, now that the public spotlight is on the NXIVM cult, the OMPC has changed its tune, as the New York Post reports that Porter is now accused of moral unfitness, gross negligence and gross incompetence among other charges.

Porter is accused of showing “human subjects an actual video of the horrific and brutal murders and dismemberment of four women by machetes; and violent film clips, including a male African American being viciously stomped by a Nazi; a conscious male being forced to eat a portion of his own brain matter; and a graphic gang rape.”

Additionally, the doctor faces charges of violating state law by improperly conducting studies on Tourette’s syndrome, obsessive-compulsive disorder and brain wave monitoring of NXIVM program attendees without their permission.

The Free Thought Project has been closely following the developments of this story, and last week reported on connections between the celebrity sex cult and its billionaire backers. Although largely ignored by mainstream media, the alleged leaders of the organization, Keith Raniere and Smallville actress Allison Mack, were not just arrested for human trafficking—but were arrested and charged with slavery and child sex trafficking.

There is a growing body of evidence suggesting that rather than being a simple self-help group as NXIVM members proclaim, or even a sex cult as the mainstream media suggests, the group may actually be a front for an elite-based child sex trafficking ring—as the group’s ties have been revealed to extend to numerous power-elite ruling class families, including the Bronfmans and Clintons.

With alleged leaders Raniere in jail and Mack out on bond with conditions that include not having contact with other NXIVM cult members, Clare Bronfman has allegedly taken on the role of leader within the organization. Bronfman and her sister, Sarah, are alleged to be the primary financial backers of the cult, funding the organization with hundreds of millions of dollars. The Bronfman sisters are heirs to the Seagrams liquor fortune.

The charges against Mack accuse her of working in a quasi-management position within the organization. The complaint alleges that as second-in-command, Mack served as a recruiter who worked to lure women into the purported self-help program as a means of convincing them to sign up for the “advanced program” called Dominus Obsequious Sororium, which required women to essentially become subservient to Raniere.

Dominus Obsequious Sororium is a quasi-Latin phrase that roughly translates to “Master Over the Slave Women.”

“As alleged in the indictment, Allison Mack recruited women to join what was purported to be a female mentorship group that was, in fact, created and led by Keith Raniere. The victims were then exploited, both sexually and for their labor, to the defendants’ benefit,” U.S. Attorney Richard P. Donoghue said in a statement.

Women within the Dominus Obsequious Sororium were then allegedly required to give Raniere blackmail in the form of nude pictures or damaging information to be used to keep women from speaking out if they left the group. They were also forced to sign over their finances, maintain weight requirements and even be surgically branded with a symbol that included Raniere’s initials.

As TFTP reported in November 2017, “the cult was finally exposed when the daughter of former Dynasty actress Catherine Oxenberg became a member. Oxenberg told the New York Times that she became concerned after she saw that her 26-year-old daughter India was extremely emaciated from dieting and was suffering from serious health problems.”

“Some people have said this is a voluntary sorority. The women I have spoken to tell a far different story,” Oxenberg said. “Coercion is not voluntary. Extortion is not voluntary. Blackmail is not voluntary.”

Once the accusations against NXIVM became public, numerous other women, including actress Sarah Edmondson, came forward to all to tell the same story of the blackmail, branding, forced labor, and sexual slavery.

Porter has a hearing set for June 27, and if the charges against him are substantiated he could face suspension or revocation of his medical license. Upon resigning from St. Peter’s Hospital in Albany last fall, Porter reportedly fled town. The Post reports that the New York Health Department would not comment on the OPMC’s action and Kobelt declined to comment.

Miami Corrections Officer Charged in Teen’s Death Used Bribery System, Indictment Says

Elord Revolte was beaten to death by inmates at a Miami juvenile detention center on Aug. 30, 2015.

Dangling rewards and special privileges before young inmates, an officer at Miami’s juvenile lockup masterminded an attack on another inmate who was beaten so severely that he died, according to a federal indictment unsealed Monday.

As part of a coded bounty system known in prison vernacular as “honey-bunning” — for the sweet rolls sometimes offered as rewards — detention officer Antwan Lenard Johnson ordered the attack on 17-year-old Elord Revolte at the Miami-Dade Juvenile Detention Center in August 2015, the indictment says. The document refers to the victim as “E.R.” because he was a minor at the time of his death.

At a news conference, federal prosecutors in Miami announced charges Monday afternoon against Johnson for civil rights violations that resulted in Revolte’s death.

“This cannot and will not stand,” said Benjamin Greenberg, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Florida. “The United States Constitution protects every person in the country, including those who are detained in juvenile detention facilities. When an officer abuses his or her badge and violates the civil rights of another person, this office and the FBI will hold that officer accountable.”

Greenberg acknowledged that the practice of honey-bunning is commonly used at juvenile detention centers in Florida. However, he declined to comment on the specifics of any other investigations.

Johnson “operated a bounty system in order to help ensure obedience and officer respect,” the indictment alleges. He also encouraged juvenile detainees, in exchange for rewards and privileges such as extra recreational time or snacks, to assault Revolte, it says.

Last fall, the Miami Herald series “Fight Club” examined a statewide system in Florida in which officers use honey buns, candy bars and other food from employee vending machines to entice their young wards to use violence on another inmate as a form of punishment.

The Department of Juvenile Justice has previously denied that it was aware of such a system, according to The Herald. In a statement Monday, Secretary Christina Daly, the head of the department, said it was moving to fire Johnson.

“It is our expectation that any staff who jeopardize the safety of youth be held fully accountable for their actions, including criminal prosecution,” she said. “The behavior detailed in the indictment is appalling and inexcusable.”

Daly added that the department would work with the relevant agencies involved, and that it also cooperated with the Miami-Dade Police Department and the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office during their investigations, although those resulted in no criminal charges.

According to federal prosecutors, Johnson used coded language, such as “off my face,” and nonverbal gestures, including nods, to signal other juvenile offenders to attack Revolte.

The inmates took part so that they wouldn’t be targeted themselves, prosecutors said.

Johnson wanted Revolte punished because the teenager had been acting out and had questioned Johnson’s authority, prosecutors said at the news conference.

On Aug. 30, about 15 to 20 detainees punched and kicked Revolte in a part of the center known as Module 9, reported NBC Miami. While he was assessed by medical personnel following the brutality, he wasn’t taken to a hospital until another checkup almost a day later, according to a review. He died at the hospital.

The juveniles who took part were briefly locked in their cells. After help arrived, and mere minutes after the assault occurred, prosecutors say, Johnson and another guard acting under his direction unlocked all of the cells so that the juveniles could return to the common area, where they would receive their prize: watching TV.

“While unlocking the cells, Johnson acknowledged and fist-bumped the juvenile who had initiated the attack,” said Greenberg.

An inspector general’s report following Revolte’s death — the second last year involving a juvenile held in state custody — found that a system of employee failures led to the melee and that officers were not forthcoming about how many people were involved.

The report also noted discrepancies between Johnson’s testimony about what he witnessed when the fight broke out and the written reports he had filed.

Video surveillance viewed as part of the report, however, said Johnson and another detention officer appeared to respond appropriately and attempted to defuse the situation.

Following the attack, the Department of Juvenile Justice said, five employees either quit or were fired and seven other workers were reprimanded.

Three days before the attack, Revolte was arrested in the South Beach neighborhood of Miami on an armed robbery charge, according to The Herald. He had run away from a Miami Beach foster home.

Prosecutors had been deciding whether to charge him as an adult at the time of his death.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott told NBC News last fall that the allegations of detention officers exploiting juveniles to fight were “unacceptable.”

“The goal is constantly to hold people accountable, and also constantly try to figure out how can you improve so there’s less of a chance of this happening,” he said.

California Cop Who Shot and Killed Diante Yarber Was Previously Charged With Hate Crime


A Barstow, Calif., police officer accused of being involved in the fatal shooting of driver Diante Yarber, a young father of three, was convicted of a hate crime back in 2010 but was somehow allowed to return to the police force, attorneys representing Yarber’s family and his passengers say.

Not only was the officer allowed back on the streets to police people he apparently despises, but Yarber’s attorney also says that the officers involved in his client’s death used racial slurs during the confrontation in early April.

One of the officers shouted “[expletive] we’re going to kill you,” attorney Lee Merritt claimed, citing interviews with witnesses, according to KABC-TV.

Back on April 5, Yarber drove with his cousins and friends to a local Walmart, and Barstow police were called to investigate a “suspicious” vehicle in the parking lot.

Officers claimed that while the officers were attempting to initiate a traffic stop, Yarber “suddenly reversed,” hitting one of the patrol cars. The driver had accelerated forward and hit a second patrol car when officers opened fire. In all, 30 bullets were fired at Yarber’s vehicle, with 10 of them striking him, ultimately killing him.

Attorneys say that the shooting was unjustified and also allege that officers failed to give aid to Yarber once he was hit.

“At no time did they see law enforcement attempt to render aid or resuscitate or help Diante Yarber at all,” Merritt said.

Barstow police have so far refused to name the officers involved, but Merritt identified one officer as Jimmie Alfred Walker, who is white. A Los Angeles Times report from 2010 shows that Walker, then 30, was arrested on hate crime and battery charges for using racial slurs while assaulting a man and a woman during a late-night altercation while he was off duty.

He was released on $50,000 bail following his arrest and was later allowed to plead guilty to a lesser charge and ultimately get his job back. Hell, he was even paid a settlement, KABC notes.

And now that same man is accused of killing an unarmed black man.

Of course, officers took time to claim that they feared for their lives. Barstow Police Chief Albert Ramirez Jr. dug up Yarber’s records, which include a prior police encounter.

Ramirez said that on March 18, Yarber was driving a stolen Hyundai when officers attempted to pull him over. He fled in the vehicle, leading officers on a chase, before jumping out of the vehicle and escaping on foot. Officers, unable to find him, issued a warrant for his arrest for stealing a vehicle and fleeing from police.

So on April 5, when officers pulled the license plate of the vehicle, which came back registered under Yarber’s name, they provided the information about him to police as they responded.

When Yarber’s vehicle struck the two patrol cars, they feared for their safety, so the story goes.

“The officers feared for their safety and the safety of others and an officer-involved shooting occurred,” Ramirez wrote in the Monday statement. “Four (4) officers fired rounds from their duty sidearms during the incident. All four (4) officers were wearing their department-issued body-worn cameras and had them activated and recording at the time of the incident.”

It’s interesting how police fear a black man who is accused of stealing a car and running away. However, a white man who shot up a Waffle House and allegedly killed four people was somehow apprehended alive and well with barely a scratch, and even given bail.

Accused Waffle House Killer’s $2 Million Bail Revoked; Police Investigate Father Who May Have Given…
Updated Tuesday, April 24, 2018, 3 p.m. EDT: A $2 million bond set for accused Waffle House shooter …

As always, there are two sides to the story, and witnesses who were inside the vehicle rebutted police accounts.

“The information related to the shooting is that the car was backing up very slowly when the officer opened fire at the car,” said Dale Galipo, an attorney representing two of the passengers who were in the vehicle at the time. One of Galipo’s clients was injured in the gunfire.

“In this case, it was totally unjustified,” he added. “No one was about to be killed. There was no reason to shoot him.”

Rhode Island Police Detective Charged With Domestic Assault

John “Joe” Black

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — A detective in the Providence Police Department’s intelligence unit is accused of assaulting his girlfriend in her Federal Hill apartment on Monday night.

John “Joe” Black, a decorated veteran officer who often works undercover, was arrested at the scene, said Chief Hugh T. Clements Jr. Black is on administrative duty while the incident is under investigation.

Police were called around 8 p.m. about a disturbance in the second-floor apartment at 296 Atwells Ave., where they found Black and his girlfriend.

The woman told police that they’d gotten into an argument while out at dinner, and when they returned to her apartment, Black wanted to collect his badge and gun, according to a police report.

The woman, who was not identified, told police that she didn’t want to let Black in. She said he assaulted her and tried to take her keys, and then grabbed her phone when she wanted to call 911, according to the report. The woman said she fought back — scratching Black and giving him a black eye, according to the report. The woman also suffered an undisclosed injury.

Capt. Luis San Lucas and Lt. Richard Fernandes, the commander of the neighborhood district, also responded to the call. Black was arrested and charged with domestic simple assault and failure to relinquish the phone.

Black was arraigned by a bail commissioner early Tuesday and released on his own recognizance.

His next court date is set for May 8.

Black, 45, has been with the Providence Police Department since 2005, and he has won numerous awards for arrests and narcotics investigations. Last year, he was involved with a wiretap investigation titled “Stop the Flow” that swept three dozen people allegedly involved with trafficking heroin and fentanyl from Providence to southeastern Massachusetts. He was also involved in “Operation Hubcap,” an investigation in 2013 into drug-dealing at Kennedy Plaza. Black was one of three Providence officers who were shot and wounded by a suspect during a drug raid in 2009.

Australia’s largest lender charged fees to dead clients

Waverley cemetery in eastern Sydney, Australia

    

Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA), which is the nation’s largest lender, has collected fees from customers who it knew had died, a major inquiry has heard.

The inquiry was ordered by Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull last year following a series of scandals involving financial misconduct.

CBA told the Banking Royal Commission, which is the country’s top form of public hearing, that fees from customers have been regularly collected for services that had not been delivered. Some of its financial planners had billed services to deceased clients.

The evidence revealed multiple examples of misconduct by the bank’s financial advisers. In one case, an adviser knew that a client had died in 2004 but continued to charge adviser-service fees that continued for a decade. The adviser received around $65 a month in fees in 2014 and 2015.

“When asked, he said he didn’t know what to do and he had tried to contact the public trustee and had not heard back,” the CBA document stated.

Another customer of a different adviser had died in 2007 and contact was made with the client’s wife in 2013, but no action was taken to stop service fees being charged.

Another one of the bank’s advisers was found to have been charging service fees for multiple clients with no evidence of ongoing services being provided. He also charged fees to a dead client.

The financial advisers involved in misconduct have been penalized with warnings by the bank, CBA said.

The bank has previously faced scrutiny for alleged breaches of anti-money-laundering laws, and for providing inappropriate financial advice. Government data prepared for the inquiry showed that over 80,000 consumers have been given bad advice over the past decade, costing them around $4 billion.

The commission is due to provide a final report by February 2019. Australia’s Treasurer Scott Morrison has warned that financial executives could face strong penalties, including jail terms.
