The curious case of Equity Law and Equity Trust International

There is  a  very big anomaly in New Zealand with regards to law firms , they are not readily identifiable and even the law society has trouble telling you  what is a law firm and what is not a law firm.

Lets look at  some entries on their register  at a listing for  Stewart and associates Equity law

You wont  find it on the companies register and even the registration   on the  solicitors roll is deceptive  as the address is in Auckland  and the phone number is in Alexandra.

Also you have to  wonder how an organization can operate   from a Po Box. .. bit cramped we would have thought .

Try to physically locate it  and you will never  find it  as the ” organisation ”  doe not  exist   and  it is indeed a  fictional law firm .

This fictional law firm,   fictional entity   is however the  instructing solicitors  in  court action  agaisnt us . The law firm  only has one  lawyer  a  young lady   named Julia Leenoh.   Julia is not her real name and neither is Leenoh apparently  as she  does not appear to have obtained her degree in that name    and appears to be   Joo Yeon Lee

Now this  fictional  law firm   came  about apparently  through the  ” merger”  with Equity law  .

Now  the objective of this blog post is to identify  who or what  Equity law is .. I warn you  you are going to get dizzy .

It is of note that when the proceedings were commenced against us the   fourth plaintiff was identified as  Equity Chambers we then received a memorandum   to say

“This document notifies you that the fourth Plaintiff was incorrectly named as Equity Law Chambers.  It should instead be amended to Equity Law Barristers Limited, as incorporated company, having its registered offices at Level 4, Khyber Pass Road, Grafton, Auckland. ”

We had rather foolishly  thought that equity law    was  equity law barristers  as  all the  signage in the building  indicate equity law  as being inthe building  and when  our director had close relationships with the  law firm  it appeared to be a law firm .

let us look at the  history of Equity law .. assuming that it is the company  Equity  law barristers Limited

the company was formed  19 Dec 2006   as Equity law  2007 Limited

Captures from the  way back machine  show the very first  we presence  that they captured  on 17 August 2007

the  web site  was registered 20:19 27/3/2007 to  equity law  Limited  we note that there is no such company as  Equity law limited  but even the registrar of  domain names agrees that this must be the company which owns the web site   becasue the other associated companies did not exist  at that time

Equity trust International Limited  was incorporated 26 may 2008

Equity trust International tax agents  Limited  was incorporated  15 November 2011

Going back to  Equity Law 2007 Limited  we note that it had two directors

These two persons are also involved in the   legal action against us .

Action was originally taken  agaisnt a member  and  when     the plaintiffs agreed it was an error they eventually  submitted  proper documentation   which   shows the other plaintiffs signatures.

this is the signature of the  second  Plaintiff   now look at the   initial filing  documents of the  company for this  same person    and the signature is  some what  different  the  full document is on this     link it is the fourth  document from the bottom  this   and the share holder link is this the  actual signature for the share holder is   this

Our research shows that  the  actual signature is the very first one

to us it appears  that  a law  firm has been   set up  using fraudulent signatures. But could it even have been a law  firm ?   seems like no one can tell us.  Now  The   director of  the firm   claims that Equity law is a trading name he used.  so the plot thickens. perhaps we will never know.

The  dubious signatures are  a bit ironic  as  a  member of the chambers was Frank Deliu  who defended Lu Zhang  “

Lu Zhang, 28, is accused of 75 offences of making false statements in company registration forms after she declared her office address was her residence in 75 companies she registered.

She was charged after a plane loads of weapons, including rockets and grenades, from North Korea bound for Iran was seized in Bangkok last year.

another  new item is also worthy of reading  this is an extract

Former fast-food worker Lu Zhang, 28, was the sole director of Queen St registered SP Trading Ltd, a company that hired a plane discovered at Bangkok airport last December flying 25 tonnes of arms from North Korea to an unknown destination, believed to be Iran.

Zhang pleaded guilty yesterday to 74 charges of giving false residential information to the Companies Office, which registered multiple companies with her as a director. She could have faced up to five years in jail and/or a fine of $200,000, but was convicted and discharged.

Her lawyer, Frank Deliu, revealed that the Chinese ambassador in Wellington, Xu Jianguo, had written to Zhang’s immigration consultant, former immigration minister Tuariki Delamere, who had briefed him on what was happening. Mr Xu’s letter was included in affidavits.  see article

it is interesting to note that  Tuariki Delamare operates  a  floor below that of Equity law   see this

The   entire building appears to be abuzz with   inter connected activity   just recently  the bank Breder Suasso  was found operating on the second floor  with a fake reception  see the news item here

The fourth Floor  of  44 Khyber pass   used to be just the law firm  and the travel agent next  door  but now  we have  a  raft of activity  there including  forex traders  and  Equity trust International  which sets up  new Zealand companies for   foreigners   .

The instructing solicitor  in the action against us is Greg Stewart , although he works in Alexandra he is the director of this company  and also  supervised Julia Leenoh    from his desk in Otago .

we have now   got a most  confusing situation   where by  the court papers filed Greg Stewart claims  that  Equity   law barristers limited was not the law firm    called equity law   in one lot of proceedings  and  claims that it was  in  another lot of proceedings.

the Statement of Claim and the  Bundle for defence part 1 and Bundle for defence part 2  AND Bundle for defence part 3    and the defamation defence COMBINED are at the links

they have been served on the lawyer  who is appearing on the matter   and who  has been signing the submissions  but refuses to file a representation . this is Michael  Locke  we believe he is the one and the same   who  appears on the insolvency web site having been   recently released from bankruptcy .

The plaintiffs    have been attempting to  silence us  because  the truth is  inconvenient

our revelations   that the  former lawyer  did not have a proper  law firm,   and the fact that the   associated  trust firm passes itself off as a ;w firm is of concern.  as  are the mention of 10 million dollar bank accounts, solicitor escrow accounts and  the offer of passports   from the Dominican republic, St  Kitts  and Nevis  as second passports to  open up the world for  would be investors.

Interesting holiday reading of  what he  world  so called second least corrupt country facilitates.

We stand by our research   the truth is the truth .

Transparency International New Zealand will you unmask the corrupt ?

Transparency International are running an excellent campaign called  Unmask  the corrupt .Ironically this is what we have been doing and   have been sued for , that is because  we have been doing it on our own.

There is a vast difference between Transparency International and  their NZ branch  , The New Zealand branch  dedicates it web site to showing how well we are doing at being  ” corruption Free”  while the rest of the world actually  fights corruption.

We often point out that  if you ignore cancer you will  succumb to it , the same is true of corruption.

We have New Zealand companies involved in international  trade, not  all of it legitimately  see this news item.

Naked Capitalism a web site operated  overseas  by a number of  top  class   journalists  and  connected  to the international consortium of investigative  journalists have  published a number of articles  with regards to   the activity of  Money laundering in New Zealand  see this post entitled “New Zealand, Fresh From Its Service to Mexican Drug Lords, Helps Out the Russian Mafia” and a more recent onesNew Zealand’s GT Group in Romania, Moldova and the UK,

While New Zealand’s Company Law Reform Stalls, GT Group Helps a Thieving Ukrainian Despot

New Zealand: Pseudo-Financial Companies, and GT Group, Both Still Going Strong.

NC’s Guess About a Sean Quinn-GT Group Connection Just Got a Bit More Solid (But a Bit More Ho-Hum, Too)

At Least Half of the 21,500 Companies Revealed by the Guardian/ICIJ Offshore Investigation Have Connections With Rogue Agent GT Group

What is significant is that    the Government thinks that they have closed  down the GT group  but many of  the companies once administered by a new zealand company  .Just one such example is GT GLORIA TRADING

This company  overseas companies and  has a disproportionate Russian representation .

Even many of the people involved   are what we call name shifters and so are the companies themselves , this is  so that you never really know who you are dealing with  .

email Bushe

Alex Bushe  of equity law  also appears to be one and the same as    Alexander BUSHUEV, who  is the director of a number of  Equities companies SEDLEX LIMITED (5058320) – Director & Shareholder GLOBAL WEALTH GROUP LIMITED (5433544) – Director & Shareholder FIDELIS INTERNATIONAL TRADING LIMITED (5318101) – Director & Shareholder BLACKLIST DEBT RECOVERY LIMITED (4361899) – Director & Shareholder STEIGEN MAKLER LIMITED (5170404) – Director & Shareholder DRAGON GROUP LIMITED (5433581) – Director & Shareholder

another such person is  Gregory Shelton  who also appears to be the one and the same as Grigori CHELOUDIAKOV who   took over the shareholdings of several companies including    IMEXO PRANA  and   CRESTPOINT TRADE

Both of these companies had  former director   latvian  Inta bilder  and are  associate to the companies involved in this news item NZ shell company linked to alleged $150m fraud  AND SEE the latvian proxys

So needless to say  we  whole heatedly support the  initiative of  Transparency International in the UNMASK THE CORRUPT  CAMPAIGN .
