(WASHINGTON) State Dept Statement Report: Seven years ago on Thursday Russia violated international law, the norms by which modern countries engage one another, and the sovereignty and territorial integrity of its neighbour Ukraine when it invaded Crimea President Biden said #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Feb.28: Seven years ago today, Russia violated international law, the norms by which modern countries engage one another, and the sovereignty and territorial integrity of its neighbor Ukraine when it invaded Crimea:

U.S. Will Stand With Ukraine Against Russia’s Aggressive Acts – Biden said this in a statement marking the seventh anniversary of the annexation of Crimea, which was posted on the website of the White House

The United States continues to stand with Ukraine and its allies and partners today, as it has from the beginning of this conflict. On this somber anniversary, we reaffirm a simple truth: Crimea is Ukraine,” Biden said in the statement.

According to the statement, the United States does not and will never recognize Russia’s annexation of the peninsula.

“We will continue to work to hold Russia accountable for its abuses and aggression in Ukraine,” the statement said.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, United States State Secretary Anthony Blinken said earlier that the United States welcomed Ukraine’s initiative to create the Crimean Platform and called on Russia to end its occupation of the peninsula:

(CONCORD, NH.) US Marshalls Fugtive Task Force Report: Announces arrest of the third and final suspect in the death of a New Hampshire toddler last November #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Feb.28: The first arrests connected to this investigation occurred this past Tuesday, when the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force located, Shawna Cote, 29, and Mark Geremia, 32, in a residence in Tilton, NH. The final fugitive was Dana Dolan, 24 years-of-age, who was last known to reside in Tilton, NH:

‘The Londonderry Police Department had requested the assistance of the U.S. Marshals – NH Joint Fugitive Task Force to locate the three people accused of crimes related to the death of a NH toddler last November’

On February 26, 2021, the Londonderry Police Department and the U.S. Marshals issued a press release and wanted poster offering a reward of up to $2500.00 for information leading to the location and arrest of the final fugitive in this case, Dana Dolan. This offer of a reward greatly increased the number of tips received.

A lot of this information was investigated and ruled out, while some of it pointed investigators to a variety of locations in and around the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. Today, members of the US Marshals – NH Joint Fugitive Task Force worked with several agencies to locate Dolan. The information learned through today’s investigation brought the task force to an apartment on Powder Hill Drive in Lancaster, NH. As members of the US Marshals, NH State Police and the Lancaster Police Department approached the residence, Dolan attempted to flee out the back door and was quickly arrested.

Dolan was transferred to the custody of the Londonderry Police Department where he will be processed on the following very serious charges; Negligent Homicide; Manslaughter – Reckless; & Reckless Conduct with a Deadly Weapon. Mr. Dolan will be held at the Rockingham County Jail pending his initial court appearance on Monday. U.S. Marshal Nick Willard said, “This is one of those investigations that truly pulls on the heart-strings of everyone, as crimes against children do.” Willard continued, “The US Marshals Fugitive Task Force and countless other agencies worked tirelessly to ensure that all three of these fugitives were arrested so they can be brought to justice.”

This extensive investigation and arrest was made by the investigative efforts of several member agencies
of the U.S. Marshals – New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force including, the Belknap, Rockingham & Strafford County Sheriff’s Offices, & the Greenfield, Danbury, Laconia, Lancaster, Littleton, Londonderry, Northfield, & TIlton Police Departments, along with the DEA and deputy US Marshals.

Since the inception of the U.S. Marshals – New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, these
partnerships have resulted in over 8,218 arrests (Updated as of 12/16/2020). These arrests have ranged in seriousness from murder, assault, unregistered sex offenders, probation and parole violations and numerous other serious offenses. Nationally the United States Marshals Service fugitive programs are carried out with local law enforcement in 94 district offices, 85 local fugitive task forces, 8 regional task forces, as well as a growing network of offices in foreign countries.

(TEL AVIV, Israel.) JUST IN: Defence Minster Benny Gantz said that Iran was most likely behind an explosion that occurred earlier this week of a cargo vessel in the ‘Gulf of Oman’ in an interview with Israeli State TV Gan #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Feb.28: Iran was most likely behind an explosion that occurred earlier this week on an Israeli-owned cargo vessel in the Gulf of Oman, the Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz said:

‘Israeli defense minister says Iran behind cargo ship MV Helios Ray, which was carrying vehicles in the Gulf was struck on Febriuary 25: “ The location of the ship in relative close proximity to Iran raises the belief that they were responsible, but it must still be verified,” Gantz said in an interview with Israeli state television Kan’

Iranian authorities have not publicly commented on the ship.

February 28, 2021 11:54:

“Right now, at an initial assessment level, given the proximity and the context that is my assessment,” he added.And Gantz said that it was known that Iran was intending to target Israeli assets and citizens.
Top Israeli defense and political leaders will discuss on Sunday their response to the apparent attack, Kan reported citing officials who have said it “crossed a red line.”

The explosion did not cause any casualties but left two 1.5-meter-diameter holes in the side of the vessel.

The MV Ray Helios arrived in Dubai’s port for repairs Sunday, according to the Associated Press.

 The Israeli-owned MV Helios Ray was seen sitting at dry dock facilities in Dubai by an AP journalist. 

Reuters quoted a statement by a spokesman for Dubai state port operator DP World saying that “an assessment can be made” when the ship arrives. DP World owns and operates the dry docks, where ship repairs and maintenance are carried out.

Police arrested the six activists on Tuesday afternoon, holding them for around 48 hours, according to local media reports.

The group appeared in court on Thursday and was charged with causing £50,000 ($69,624) in criminal damage. Police also raided the activists’ homes, Palestine Action said.

A similar protest in September saw activists occupy the factory’s rooftop for three days, costing the firm an estimated £145,000 ($201,912).

Palestine Action has accused police of adopting a harsher approach towards protesters “acting on behalf of Palestinians”.

“This is the same non-violent direct action as many groups have taken and are still taking and it disgusts me that the British state acts in this way when you act for the Palestinian people,” Richard Barnard, co-founder of Palestine Action, was quoted by Morning Star as saying.

#AceNewsReport – Feb.28: U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents and officers nationwide are continuing to receive numerous calls from residents concerned about unsolicited calls from scammers posing as U.S. Border Patrol agents and U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers.

Phone Scam Tips

CBP Warns Residents of Phone Scam: Residents are reporting the calls are a pre-recorded message stating, “a box of drugs and money being shipped has your (callers) name on it and it has been intercepted.” The caller is then instructed to press #1 to speak with a CBP Officer/Agent, which then attempts to get the callers banking information and these calls are phone scams/phishing attempts and residents are urged to not provide the caller with any information’

The Department of Homeland Security and CBP does not solicit money over the phone: If such calls are received, people should make a note of the number and any other pertinent details about the call and immediately hang up, and report the incident if possible. Phone scams can be reported to the Federal Trade Commission online at https://reportfraud.ftc.gov/.

“I encourage everyone who receives one of these scam calls to report it,” said Grand Forks Sector Border Patrol Chief Anthony S. Good. “Remember to keep your personal information safe and just hang up when solicited by one of these scammers.”

(KINGSVILLE, Tx.) JUST IN: CBP Report: Yesterday, the life of a Honduran national was saved by a Missing Migrant Program (MMP) placard and he was transported to the agents station for processing after being found in good health #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Feb.28: Yesterday evening, the Kleberg County Sheriff’s Office contacted the Javier Vega, Jr. Checkpoint to notify agents of a 911 call received from a man lost in their area of responsibility: The man advised that he was unable to ascertain his coordinates from his phone due to poor reception: While lost in the vast ranch lands of Kleberg county, the man encountered an MMP placard. Agents orchestrated a successful rescue mission and were able to locate the lost subject: The man was found to be in good health and did not require further medical attention:

‘CBP Agents RGV Missing Migrant Program Rescue Placard Saves a Honduran National: Once, the subject’s health was assessed, agents provided him with water and transported him to the station for further processing’

These rescue placards are part of the MMP which was established by the Border Patrol in an effort to save lives. Rescue placards are deployed in areas which have the most impact on rescue efforts throughout the Rio Grande Valley. There are currently over 800 posted placards and 15 rescue beacons within the Rio Grande Valley Sector.

Rescue beacons differ from placards as they are equipped with lights and are visible from much greater distances. They also relay a distress signal to assist in rescue efforts.

The Rio Grande Valley MMP will continue to enhance on the 911 Location Marker Project by deploying additional rescue placards and gather other terrestrially based landmarks to serve as reference locations.  These lifesaving efforts will expand RGV MMP’s footprint thus saving additional lives.

(EDINBURG, Tx.) CBP Report: Rio Grande Valley (RGV) agents, Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) deputies, and Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) troopers disrupt another stash house operation arresting 40-illegals #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Feb.28: Yesterday, RGV agents received information regarding a residence in Mission, Texas, operating as an illegal alien stash house. Agents requested the assistance of HCSO and DPS with the investigation. As authorities arrived on scene, they observed a vehicle departing the suspected stash house: A vehicle stop was conducted resulting in the arrest of several illegal aliens. Law enforcement officials convened on the residence and observed several subjects absconding from the location into a nearby orchard: A thorough search of the property led to the apprehension of more illegal aliens. The investigation and subsequent search led to the arrest of 40 illegal aliens:

‘CBP Border Patrol Disrupt Another Stash House, Arrest 40 Illegal Aliens in Mission, Texas the smuggled aliens were from Central America, Ecuador, Mexico, and one national from Cuba’

The conditions of this location were unlike other stash houses, where smugglers are harboring numerous subjects in close quarters, to include removing furniture from the home to maximize floor space. A few of the smuggled aliens were able to shelter in a small travel-trailer with no electricity, littered with trash, and by no means, considered adequate living conditions:

The others made rugged, makeshift accommodations under nearby trees, as well as a shed within the property. The unsanitary health conditions of the stash house and surroundings, create a potential health risk to responding law enforcement agencies, to include the general public as we continue to manage the COVID pandemic.

Border Patrol will process all subjects accordingly.

Even with the spread of the COVID-19 virus, human smugglers continue to try these brazen attempts with zero regard for the lives they endanger nor to the health of the citizens of our great nation.  The U.S. Border Patrol agents of the Rio Grande Valley Sector will continue to safeguard the nation and community against these criminal elements.

#AceNewsReport – Feb.28: Joshua Neil Bowen, 28, of Alto, New Mexico, was sentenced on Feb. 16 in federal court to 12 years and seven months in prison for kidnapping. Upon his release, Bowen will be subject to three years of supervised release:

‘According to Bowen’s plea agreement and other public court documents, he and four co-defendants abducted the victim from a travel center in Mescalero, New Mexico, on April 4, 2019.

Bowen and his co-defendants took the victim to Chaparral where the co-defendants tried to withdraw money from the victim’s bank account with a debit card. From there, some of the co-defendants traveled to El Paso, Texas, where Bowen took the victim to a bank. Bowen ordered the victim to pretend to be Bowen’s grandfather and change the PIN for the victim’s ATM card. After changing the PIN, Bowen transported the victim back to New Mexico. Some of the co-defendants obtained money from the victim’s bank account.

Bowen and his co-defendants checked into a hotel in Las Cruces, New Mexico, on April 5, 2019, where they prevented the victim from leaving. Bowen and Brittany Priddy, 30, of Ruidoso, New Mexico, left the hotel on April 7, 2019, and traveled to a residence. On April 8, 2019, the victim managed to call his son and tell him where he was.

(DENVER, Colo.) FAA & NTSB Investigate Flight328 Report: US to Honolulu that it landed safely in Denver despite one of its engines failing, causing it to scatter debris over a nearby Colorado town: United Airlines said there were no reported injuries which had 231-passengers and 10-crew on aboard #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Feb.27: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said it and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) would investigate: The images posted by the police department appeared to show large pieces of debris, including an engine casing from the plane, scattered outside a home and on a playing field:

‘United Airlines flight suffers engine failure, scatters debris over Colorado before emergency landing: It landed at 1:30pm local time on Saturday, 30 minutes after take-off’

Police in Broomfield posted photos of pieces of debris from the Boeing 777-200 aircraft, but there were no immediate reports of any injuries on the ground.

Posted 10h ago, updated 8h ago

A video on social media showed a cloud of black smoke being left by a plane.

“Something blew up,” a man on the video can be heard saying.

Passengers recounted a terrifying ordeal that began to unfold shortly after the plane full of holidaymakers took off.

Local residents reported an explosion in the sky, followed by a shower of debris.(Broomfield Police Department)

The aircraft was almost at cruising altitude and the captain was giving an announcement over the intercom when a large explosion rocked the cabin, accompanied by a bright flash.

“The plane started shaking violently, and we lost altitude and we started going down,” said David Delucia, who was sitting directly across the aisle from the side with the failed engine.

“When it initially happened, I thought we were done. I thought we were going down.”

Mr Delucia and his wife took their wallets containing their driver’s licenses and put them in their pockets so that “in case we did go down, we could be ID’d.”

On the ground, witnesses also heard the explosion and were scared for those on board.

Local resident Tyler Thal said he was out for a walk with his family when he noticed a large commercial plane flying unusually low and took out his phone to film it.

“While I was looking at it, I saw an explosion and then the cloud of smoke and some debris falling from it,” Mr Thal said.

“It was just like a speck in the sky, and as I’m watching that, I’m telling my family what I just saw and then we heard the explosion.

“The plane just kind of continued on, and we didn’t see it after that.”

Kirby Klements was inside his house with his wife when they heard a huge booming sound. 

A few seconds later, the couple saw a massive piece of debris fly past their window and into the bed of Mr Klements’ truck, crushing the cab and pushing the vehicle into the dirt.

He estimated the circular engine cowling at 4.5 metres in diameter.

No injuries were reported on the ground after the aircraft’s “catastrophic” engine failure.(Broomfield Police Department)

Fine pieces of the fibreglass insulation used in the airplane engine fell from the sky “like ash” for about 10 minutes, he said, and several large chunks of insulation landed in his backyard.

“If it had been 10 feet (3m) different, it would have landed right on top of the house,” Mr Klements said.

“And if anyone had been in the truck, they would have been dead.”

As authorities investigated, aviation safety experts said the plane appeared to have suffered an uncontained and catastrophic engine failure.

(WORLDWIDE) #AceSecurityReport: The malicious extension, FriarFox, snoops in on both Firefox and Gmail-related data as newly uncovered ‘cyberattack’ takes control of gmail accounts

#AceSecurityReport; Feb.27: A newly uncovered cyberattack is taking control of victims’ Gmail accounts, by using a customized, malicious Mozilla Firefox browser extension called FriarFox:

Malicious Mozilla Firefox Extension Allows Gmail Takeover: ‘Researchers say the threat campaign, observed in January and February, targeted Tibetan organizations and was tied to TA413, a known advanced persistent threat (APT) group that researchers believe to be aligned with the Chinese state’

‘The group behind this attack aims to gather information on victims by snooping in on their Firefox browser data and Gmail messages, said researchers: After installation, FriarFox gives cybercriminals various types of access to users’ Gmail accounts and Firefox browser data’

February 25, 2021 12:04 pm:

For instance, cybercriminals have the ability to search, read, label, delete, forward and archive emails, receive Gmail notifications and send mail from the compromised account. And, given their Firefox browser access, they could access user data for all websites, display notifications, read and modify privacy settings, and access browser tabs:

“The introduction of the FriarFox browser extension in TA413’s arsenal further diversifies a varied, albeit technically limited repertoire of tooling,” said Proofpoint on Thursday. “The use of browser extensions to target the private Gmail accounts of users, combined with the delivery of Scanbox malware, demonstrates the malleability of TA413 when targeting dissident communities.”

The Cyberattack: Stemming From Malicious Emails

The attack stemmed from phishing emails (first detected in late January), targeting several Tibetan organizations. One of the emails uncovered by researchers purported to be from the “Tibetan Women’s Association,” which is a legitimate group based in India. The subject of the email was: “Inside Tibet and from the Tibetan exile community.”

Researchers noted that the emails were delivered from a known TA413 Gmail account, which has been in use for several years. The email impersonates the Bureau of His Holiness the Dalai Lama in India, said researchers.

The email contained a malicious URL, which impersonated a YouTube page (hxxps://you-tube[.]tv/). In reality, this link took recipients to a fake Adobe Flash Player update-themed landing page, where the process of downloading the malicious browser extension begins.

Fake Adobe Flash Player Page and FriarFox Download

The malicious “update” page then executes several JavaScript files, which profile the user’s system and determine whether or not to deliver the malicious FriarFox extension; the installation of FriarFox depends on several conditions.

“Threat actors appear to be targeting users that are utilizing a Firefox Browser and are utilizing Gmail in that browser,” the researchers said. “The user must access the URL from a Firefox browser to receive the browser extension. Additionally, it appeared that the user must be actively logged in to a Gmail account with that browser to successfully install the malicious XPI [FriarFox] file.”

Firefox users with an active Gmail session are immediately served the FriarFox extension (from hxxps://you-tube[.]tv/download.php) with a prompt that enables the download of software from the site.

They are prompted to add the browser extension (by approving the extension’s permissions), which claims to be “Flash update components.”

But the threat actors also utilize various tricks against users who are either not using a Firefox browser and/or who do not have an active Gmail session.

For instance, one user who did not have an active Gmail session and wasn’t using Firefox was redirected to the legitimate YouTube login page, after visiting the fake Adobe Flash Player landing page. The attackers then attempted to access an active domain cookie in use on the site.

In this situation, “actors may be attempting to leverage this domain cookie to access the user’s Gmail account in the instance that a GSuite federated login session is used to log in to the user’s YouTube account,” said researchers. However, “this user is not served the FriarFox browser extension.”

FriarFox Browser Extension: Malicious Capabilities

Researchers said that FriarFox appears to be based on an open-source tool called “Gmail Notifier (restartless).” This is a free tool that’s available from various locations, including GitHub, the Mozilla Firefox Browser Add-Ons store and the QQ App store. The malicious extension also comes in the form of an XPI file, noted researchers – these files are compressed installation archives used by various Mozilla applications, and contain the contents of a Firefox browser extension.

“TA413 threat actors altered several sections of the open-source browser extension Gmail Notifier to enhance its malicious functionality, conceal browser alerts to victims and disguise the extension as an Adobe Flash-related tool,” said researchers.

After FriarFox is installed, one of the Javascript files (tabletView.js) also contacts an actor-controlled server to retrieve the Scanbox framework. Scanbox is a PHP and JavaScript-based reconnaissance framework that can collect information about victim systems, which dates to 2014.

TA413 Threat Group: Continually Evolving

TA413 has been associated with Chinese state interests and is known for targeting the Tibetan community. As recently as September, the China-based APT was sending organizations spear-phishing emails that distribute a never-before-seen intelligence-collecting RAT dubbed Sepulcher.

“While not conventionally sophisticated when compared to other active APT groups, TA413 combines modified open-source tools, dated shared reconnaissance frameworks, a variety of delivery vectors and very targeted social-engineering tactics,” said researchers.

Researchers said this latest campaign shows that TA413 appears to be pivoting to using more modified open-source tooling to compromise victims.

“Unlike many APT groups, the public disclosure of campaigns, tools and infrastructure has not led to significant TA413 operational changes,” they said. “Accordingly, we anticipate continued use of a similar modus operandi targeting members of the Tibetan diaspora in the future.”Write a comment

(LONDON) Old Bailey Court Report: A man who callously attacked and murdered a man in a Brixton park in August 2019 will serve a minimum of 20 years in prison #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Feb.27: At the same court on Friday, 26 February, he was sentenced to life with a minimum term of 20 years for the murder. He was also sentenced to 11 years for attempted robbery and six years for GBH against a second victim:

‘Man jailed for the murder of Lee Casey …..Levi Paschal, 34 (16.05.86) of Clarence Avenue, SW4 was found guilty of murdering 38-year-old Lee following the conclusion of a trial at the Old Bailey on Thursday, 28 January’

‘Paschal’s partner, Clementine Jones, 32 (14.01.89), also of Clarence Avenue, SW4 was found guilty of attempted robbery and causing GBH with intent in relation to a second victim at the conclusion of the same trial – she was sentenced to 10 years for attempted robbery and five years for GBH’

A separate suspended sentence she was serving was activated, adding a further three months to her total sentence: Their trial heard how on 29 August 2019, Paschal, a drug user, conspired with Jones to rob a man who she had arranged to meet in a park at Rush Green, SW2 under the pretence of buying drugs: Shortly before midday, the man arrived at Rush Green and sat down on a bench with Lee Casey and another woman. Paschal and Jones arrived and an argument ensued during which Paschal armed himself with a large hunting knife and attempted to attack the man: He ran away but slipped and was grabbed by Paschal. Lee – seeing the events unfolding in front of him – attempted to intervene. When he did so, he was stabbed by Paschal: Those present gave first aid until police and the London Ambulance Service arrived. Lee was taken to hospital where he died that afternoon. While Lee lay dying in the park, Paschal and Jones fled the scene: An investigation was immediately launched by homicide detectives from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command. They identified both Paschal and Jones in the vicinity of the murder scene prior to the attack and also leaving together afterwards: On 1 September 2019, officers executed a warrant at their address in Clarence Avenue and both were arrested and subsequently charged:

In a statement released on behalf of Lee’s family following the sentencing of Levi Paschal, his sister Michelle Casey said: “ Lee’s heroic actions in trying to protect someone did not come as a surprise to us. However, this brave and selfless deed resulted in his life being taken: “ Levi Paschal was willing to destruct anything that got in his way, including Lee’s life. He can still see and speak to his loved ones but we will never see or speak to Lee again. How is that fair?There is no punishment that he could receive that would ever be slightly comparable to the punishment he caused us when he ripped Lee from us. It will never give us what we want which is to have Lee back, but hopefully for the foreseeable future he will be unable to selfishly take another person’s life and destroy another family: “ As a family, we all suffer anxiety on a daily basis, thinking that Lee will walk through the door or call our phones again. The events of that day and the horrific way in which Lee died plays on our minds constantly. The catastrophic damage it has caused us is irreparable: “ All we have wished for is to hear Lee say ‘I love you’ as he always did, but we will never hear this again.”

Detective Chief Inspector Katherine Goodwin, who led the investigation, said: “The actions of Levi Paschal have utterly devastated Lee Casey’s family and friends. While no words can begin to ease the pain they are suffering, I hope they can take some solace in the fact that Lee was bravely attempting to assist a friend when he was fatally attacked: Paschal and Jones set out that day to intimidate and use violence to get their way. While both will now face the consequences of their actions, the real consequence is borne by Lee’s family who have lost a loved one.”

Following the conclusion of the trial on 28 January, Jones was found not guilty of Lee’s murder. Paschal and Jones were also acquitted of a further count of attempted robbery.

(WASHINGTON) Justice Court Report: N.J. Man has pleaded guilty to his role in conspiring with members of a white supremacist hate group to threaten and intimidate African Americans and Jewish Americans by vandalizing minority-owned properties throughout the country in September 2019 #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Feb.27: Conspiring with others to vandalize and destroy property owned by African-Americans and Jewish Americans will not be tolerated by the Department of Justice,” said Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Pam Karlan of the Civil Rights Division. “Every person should feel secure knowing they have the right to own and use their property free from being targeted because of their race or religion. We will continue to protect the civil rights of all individuals and vigorously prosecute bias motivated crimes.”

New Jersey Man Admits Conspiring with White Supremacists to Vandalize Synagogues Across the Country: ‘ Richard Tobin, 19, of Brooklawn, pleaded guilty to an information charging him with conspiracy against rights. U.S. District Court Judge Robert B. Kugler scheduled sentencing for June 28, 2021’

“Americans should never have to fear racist, anti-Semitic or any other form of bias-motivated violence,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Rachael A. Honig for the District of New Jersey. “This defendant encouraged hateful acts of violence against individuals and their houses of worship, based solely on their religion or the color of their skin. Together with our colleagues in the Civil Rights Division and the Joint Terrorism Task Force, this office will continue to work every day to identify individuals like him and bring them swiftly to justice.”

“The FBI and our partners simply won’t tolerate crimes spurred by hate, which are meant to intimidate and isolate the groups targeted,” said Michael J. Driscoll, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Philadelphia Division. “People of all races and faiths deserve to feel safe in their communities. Richard Tobin encouraged others to victimize innocent people, in furtherance of his abhorrent white supremacist beliefs. While we all have the right to believe whatever we want, when those views lead to violence, that’s a different and dangerous story.”

According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court:Tobin admitted that from Sept. 15 to Sept. 23, 2019, he was a member of a white supremacist group, “The Base,” and during that time, he communicated online with other members and directed them to destroy and vandalize properties affiliated with African Americans and Jewish Americans. Tobin dubbed this coordinated attack “Kristallnacht,” or “Night of Broken Glass,” after an attack in Germany on Nov. 9 and 10, 1938, in which Nazis murdered Jewish people and burned and destroyed Jewish homes, synagogues, stores and schools. Tobin implored members of The Base to post propaganda flyers and to break windows and slash tires belonging to African Americans and Jewish Americans. On Sept. 21, 2019, members of The Base vandalized synagogues in Racine, Wisconsin, and Hancock, Michigan, by spray painting them with hate symbols.

A conspirator, Yousef Omar Barasneh, previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy against rights in federal court in the Eastern District of Wisconsin, for his role in vandalizing the synagogue in Racine, Wisconsin.   

The conspiracy charge carries a maximum potential penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, or twice the gross gain or loss from the offense, whichever is greater.

The government is represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Kristen M. Harberg of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Camden and Trial Attorney Eric Peffley of the Civil Rights Division, Criminal Section.

(WASHINGTON) Justice Court Report: United Airlines Inc. (United), the world’s third largest airline, has agreed to pay over $49 million to resolve criminal charges and civil claims relating to fraud on postal service contracts for transportation of international mail #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Feb.27: United entered into a non-prosecution agreement (NPA) with the Criminal Division’s Fraud Section and agreed to pay $17,271,415 in criminal penalties and disgorgement to resolve a criminal investigation into a fraud scheme perpetrated by former employees of United’s Cargo Division in connection with United’s execution of contracts to deliver mail internationally on behalf of the U.S. Postal Service (USPS).

United Airlines to Pay $49 Million to Resolve Criminal Fraud Charges and Civil Claims: ‘Separately, United has entered into a False Claims Act settlement with the Civil Division’s Commercial Litigation Branch, Fraud Section, for related conduct, under which it is obligated to pay $32,186,687’

“United was entrusted by the U.S. Postal Service with fulfilling a critical government function – the transportation of U.S. mail abroad,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Nicholas L. McQuaid of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division. “Instead of performing this duty with transparency, United defrauded the U.S. Postal Service by providing falsified parcel delivery information over a period of years and accepting millions of dollars of payments to which the company was not entitled. Today’s resolution emphasizes that companies that defraud the government – no matter the context, contract, or federal program – will be held accountable.”

“Companies that do business with the United States must adhere to their contractual obligations,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Brian M. Boynton of the Justice Department’s Civil Division. “The Department of Justice will pursue those who knowingly fail to provide the government with the goods or services for which it has paid and that it is entitled to receive.”

“The USPS contracts with commercial airlines for the safeguarding and timely delivery of U.S. Mail to foreign posts, including the mail sent to our soldiers deployed to foreign operating bases,” said Director Steven Stuller of the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) Office of Inspector General. “The Office of Inspector General supports the Postal Service by aggressively investigating allegations of contractual non-compliance within the mail delivery process, including the falsification of delivery information. Our special agents worked hand-in-hand with the Department of Justice to help ensure a reasonable resolution and we applaud the exceptional work done by the investigative and legal teams.”

According to the criminal NPA and civil settlement agreement, United entered into International Commercial Air (ICAIR) contracts with USPS, by which United transported U.S. mail internationally on behalf of USPS. Pursuant to these ICAIR contracts, United was obligated to provide bar code scans of mail receptacles to USPS when United took possession of the mail receptacles and when the receptacles were delivered to the foreign postal administration or other intended recipient. United was entitled to full payment under these ICAIR contracts only if accurate mail scans were provided and mail was timely delivered to the foreign postal administration or intended recipient.

Between 2012 and 2015, United engaged in a scheme to defraud USPS by submitting false delivery scan data to make it appear that United and partner airlines with which it worked were complying with the ICAIR requirements, when in fact they were not. Instead of providing USPS accurate delivery scans based on the movement of the mail, United submitted automated delivery scans based on aspirational delivery times. These automated scans did not correspond to the actual movement of the mail, as mandated by the contracts. Because this scan data was not tethered to the actual delivery of mail to the foreign recipients, payment was inappropriate under the ICAIR contracts. Through this data automation scheme, United secured millions of dollars in payments from the USPS to which United was not entitled under the ICAIR contacts.

United further admitted that it concealed problems related to scanning and mail movements that, if known, would have subjected United to financial penalties under the ICAIR contracts. Certain individuals at United worked to conceal United’s automation efforts from the USPS, as they knew that the data being transmitted was fabricated. These individuals further knew that the transmission of false data violated the terms of the ICAIR contracts. The attempts to hide the automation practices included efforts to revise the falsified delivery times to make the automated scans appear less suspicious to USPS.

As part of the criminal resolution, United has agreed to continue to cooperate with the Criminal Division’s Fraud Section and to report any evidence or allegation of a violation of U.S. fraud laws. United has further agreed to strengthen its compliance program and to specific reporting requirements, which require United to submit yearly reports to the Fraud Section regarding the status of its remediation and implementation of United’s compliance program and internal controls, policies, and procedures aimed at deterring and detecting violations of U.S. fraud laws in connection with government contracting.

The Criminal Division’s Fraud Section reached this resolution with United based on a number of factors, including the nature and seriousness of the offense conduct; United’s failure to timely and voluntarily self‑disclose the offense conduct to the department; and United’s prior history, including a 2016 non-prosecution agreement relating to potential criminal bribery or corruption violations arising out of United’s establishment and operation of a non-stop route between Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey and Columbia Metropolitan Airport in South Carolina. In addition, United, responding to the Fraud Section’s requests, cooperated with the Fraud Section’s investigation by collecting, organizing, and producing voluminous documents, assisting in making employees available to be interviewed, and making a factual presentation to the Fraud Section. The Fraud Section did not require United to pay a victim compensation payment as part of the NPA because United agreed to a global resolution of its criminal and civil liability, entering into a separate civil settlement agreement with the Department’s Civil Division. 

The Criminal Division’s Fraud Section also considered that United engaged in remedial measures after the offense conduct, including: (i) removing and replacing the principal manager of the criminal scheme detailed in the Statement of Facts; (ii) hiring outside legal and accounting advisors to review and consult on United’s government contracting compliance and related policies and procedures; (iii) establishing an independent Government Contracts Organization to manage and ensure contractual compliance for United’s government contracts that reports directly to United’s Legal Department; (iv) establishing a training curriculum and holding a monthly training call for employees who have government contracting-related duties and responsibilities; (v) prohibiting automation and limiting access to flight configuration data to ensure that data transmitted to the USPS cannot be manipulated by employees; (vi) conducting international mail operations process reviews; and (vii) enhancing its policies and procedures relating to obtaining and complying with government contracts, including assignment of roles and responsibilities, ensuring accurate representations to the U.S. government, and subcontracting.

The civil settlement resolves allegations under the False Claims Act that United falsely reported the times it transferred possession of United States mail to foreign postal administrations or other intended recipients. This is the fourth civil settlement involving air carrier liability for false delivery scans under the USPS ICAIR Contracts. Including the civil settlement announced today, the United States has recovered nearly $65 million in connection with its investigation of delivery scan practices under the ICAIR Contracts through these civil settlements.

The criminal case was investigated by the USPS Office of the Inspector General. Assistant Chief Timothy A. Duree of the Criminal Division’s Fraud Section prosecuted this case. The civil matter was handled by the Civil Division’s Commercial Litigation Branch, Fraud Section, with assistance from the USPS Office of the Inspector General and the USPS Office of General Counsel. Senior Trial Counsel Don Williamson of the Civil Division’s Commercial Litigation Branch, Fraud Section, represented the government in the civil case.

(NEW YORK) Justice Court Report: As alleged in the indictment, Winsman Ng conspired to steal trade secrets from General Electric to start a competitor,” said Attorney for the United States, Elizabeth C. Coombe, for the Northern District of New York, Acting Under Authority Conferred by 28 U.S.C. § 515. #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Feb.27: “ Winsman Ng and his co-conspirators allegedly chose to steal what they lacked the time, talent or money to create,” said Assistant Attorney General John C. Demers of the Justice Department’s National Security Division. “Theft of American intellectual property for the benefit of foreign firms deprives American companies of the fruits of their creativity and American workers of their jobs. The Department will do all it can to disrupt this illegal and economically destructive conduct.”

Chinese Businessman Charged With Conspiring To Steal Trade Secrets: ‘ Chi Lung Winsman Ng, aka Winsman Ng, 64, a Chinese businessman residing in Hong Kong, was indicted yesterday for conspiring to steal General Electric’s (GE) trade secrets involving the company’s silicon carbide MOSFET technology worth millions of dollars’

“ As alleged in the indictment, Winsman Ng conspired to steal trade secrets from General Electric to start a competitor,” said Attorney for the United States, Elizabeth C. Coombe, for the Northern District of New York, Acting Under Authority Conferred by 28 U.S.C. § 515. “This scheme, and others like it, seek to undermine American ingenuity, which often depends on maintaining the secrecy of technological advances. We will continue to work with the FBI to hold accountable those trying to steal trade secrets from innovative companies in our district.”

“Innovation by American companies brings good things into our lives, but we shouldn’t have to buy those good things from a foreign company that stole American technology to compete against us,” said Assistant Director Alan E. Kohler Jr. of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division. “The FBI urges any U.S. business to contact us if they suspect someone, regardless of nationality, is attempting to steal or has stolen trade secrets. Only through robust engagement with U.S. businesses can we protect our economic and national security.” 

“According to the indictment, Mr. Ng conspired to steal valuable and sensitive technology from GE and produce it in China,” said Special Agent in Charge Thomas F. Relford of the FBI’s Albany Field Office. “Our office, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, and GE coordinated closely and worked quickly to prevent that theft and the resulting damage to our economic security. Theft of trade secrets is a constant and dangerous threat to our American companies and the remarkable work they do to invent and manufacture unique technology that can change the world. FBI Albany’s Counterintelligence Task Force remains committed to protecting American innovation and technology, American security and American jobs.”

The charge in the indictment is merely an accusation. The defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty. 

The indictment alleges that between about March 2017 and January 2018, Ng and at least one co-conspirator plotted to develop a business that would manufacture and sell silicon carbide MOSFETs using trade secrets stolen from GE. MOSFETs, or silicon carbide metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors, are small electronic semiconductors/switches that regulate the flow of electricity through devices and are used in a variety of products. 

Ng conspired with at least one other person, a GE engineer of more than seven years, to steal MOSFET trade secrets and other proprietary information from GE. Ng and co-conspirator #1 allegedly used those trade secrets to create a business plan and develop PowerPoint presentations which they gave to prospective investors. Ng and co-conspirator #1 told potential investors that their business could be profitable within three years and that their start-up business possessed assets – tangible and intangible – they estimated to be worth $100 million. As part of the scheme, they sought approximately $30 million in funding in exchange for an ownership stake in their start-up company. In August 2017, Ng and co-conspirator #1 allegedly met in China and gave presentations to a Chinese investment company that was considering providing funding to Ng’s start-up company.

We have no evidence that there was an illegal MOSFET technology transfer to any Chinese companies, including the company that Ng and his co-conspirator were trying to start. 

Ng has yet to be arrested. If convicted of this offense, Ng faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

This case is being investigated by the FBI Albany Field Office, and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Rick Belliss and Trial Attorney Matthew Chang of the National Security Division, Counterintelligence and Export Control Section.

(COLORADO) Justice Court Report: A Colorado man was sentenced today to 19yrs-in-prison plus 15yrs-supervised-release for plotting to blow up a synagogue #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Feb.27: Defendant planned to carry out act of domestic terrorism: Richard Holzer, 28, was sentenced to over 19 years in prison, followed by 15 years of supervised release:

“ Holzer previously pleaded guilty to federal hate crime and explosives charges for plotting to blow up the Temple Emanuel Synagogue in Pueblo, Colorado, conduct that constituted acts of domestic terrorism. Holzer told undercover FBI agents that he wanted the bombing to send a message to Jewish people that they must leave his town, “otherwise people will die.”

Holzer pleaded guilty to intentionally attempting to obstruct persons in the enjoyment of their free exercise of religious beliefs, through force and the attempted use of explosives and fire, in violation of Title 18, U.S. Code, Section 247, and to attempting to maliciously damage and destroy, by means of fire and explosives, a building used in interstate commerce.

“The Department has combatted hate-based violent extremism and domestic terrorism since our inception,” said Acting Deputy Attorney General John Carlin. “Today there is no higher priority. This sentencing serves as a reminder that these crimes will not be tolerated, and we will hold the individuals who engage in them fully accountable. From our Civil Rights Division, our National Security Division, and the FBI, to the Office for Victims of Crime and our Community Relations Service, the Department of Justice will use every tool at its disposal to identify, disrupt, deter, and prevent hate-based, extremist threats to members of the American public.”

“Today’s sentence is another step forward in our on-going fight against extremism,” said U.S. Attorney Jason Dunn of the District of Colorado. “About two-and-a-half years ago, my first day as U.S. Attorney took me to a vigil for victims from the Pittsburgh Tree of Life Synagogue attack. Today, my last day in the office, we have sentenced the extremist responsible for the attempted bombing of the Temple Emanuel Synagogue in Pueblo. We must remain ever vigilant in this battle and I am confident the Department will continue to lead this fight.”

“Protecting our communities from terrorism, both domestic and international, is a top priority for the FBI. Mr. Holzer targeted a place of worship for violence and destruction to drive people of the Jewish faith from our community,” said FBI Denver Special Agent in Charge Michael Schneider. “Today’s sentence demonstrates the commitment by the FBI and our law enforcement partners to ensure that if a crime is motivated by bias against a religion or any other federally protected status, it will be aggressively investigated, and the perpetrators held responsible for their actions. We are grateful for the collaborative efforts of the FBI’s Southern Colorado Joint Terrorism Task Force, Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office, Pueblo Police Department, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office to hold Mr. Holzer accountable for plotting violent acts of hate.”

Holzer, who self-identifies as a Neo-Nazi and white supremacist, admitted that he planned to destroy Temple Emanuel, a synagogue in Pueblo, Colorado, that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The planned bombing, which Holzer declared was “a move for our race,” was born from years of Holzer consuming and promoting white supremacist ideology. Holzer regularly used social media to glorify violence and advocate for white supremacy. After an undercover FBI employee contacted Holzer, he sent pictures of himself holding automatic weapons and said he was “getting ready for RAHOWA,” shorthand for a racial holy war.

Holzer talked to associates for months about attacking Temple Emanuel, and he visited the synagogue to observe Jewish congregants. During a meeting with undercover agents to discuss his plans, Holzer repeatedly expressed his hatred of Jewish people and suggested using explosive devices to destroy the Synagogue. Holzer told the undercover agents that he wanted to “get that place off the map.” Holzer further admitted that he coordinated with the undercover agents to obtain explosives, including pipe bombs.

On the evening of Nov. 1, 2019, Holzer met with undercover agents, who provided Holzer with inert explosive devices that had been fabricated by the FBI, including two pipe bombs and 14 sticks of dynamite. Holzer removed a copy of “Mein Kampf” from his bag and told the undercover agents that the explosives looked “absolutely gorgeous.” Holzer admitted that he planned to detonate the explosives several hours later, in the early hours of Saturday morning, Nov. 2, 2019. After his arrest, Holzer explained that “The event planned for tonight would define me as a person who would die for his people.”

The actions Holzer admitted in the plea agreement meet the federal definition of domestic terrorism, as they involved criminal acts dangerous to human life that were intended to intimidate or coerce a civilian population.

Trial Attorney Michael J. Songer of the Civil Rights Division and Assistant U.S. Attorney Julia Martinez prosecuted the case on behalf of the government. The FBI conducted the investigation with the assistance of the Pueblo Police Department and Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office.
