Equity law

Its time to sort out the confusion with regards to law firms.

The law society have a statutory duty to deal with two groups of persons – lawyers and incorporated law firms .

The  first one  is seemingly straight forward a lawyer  gets a practicing certificate and is for that year a lawyer and is  placed on the law societies register .

The law society  also provides a page called “Find a Lawyer or Organisation” and by entering a name onto that   search field and selecting “organisation”    names come up.

Basic logic would have  you think that the “organisations’ would be incorporated law firms   but that is not  so.  The reality is that the  organisation search is grossly deceptive,  to such an extent that even  the staff administering the  register cannot tell you if  these ” organisations “are  incorporated law firms or not.

An incorporated law firm  is defined as

incorporated law firm means, subject to sections 15 and 16, a company that—(a) provides to the public services that are, in relation to a lawyer, regulated services; and(b) has as its directors no persons other than lawyers who are actively involved in the provision by the body corporate of regulated services; and(c) has as its shareholders, in respect of shares that confer voting rights, no persons other than—(i) lawyers of the kind described in paragraph (b); or(ii) persons who are administrators of the estates of persons who, at the time of their death, were lawyers of the kind described in paragraph (b); and(d) has as its shareholders, in respect of shares that do not confer voting rights, no persons other than—(i) lawyers of the kind described in paragraph (b) (any 1 or more or each of whom may, but none of whom is required to, hold those shares as a trustee of a qualifying trust); or(ii) persons who are relatives of lawyers of the kind described in paragraph (b); or(iii) persons who are administrators of the estates of persons who, at the time of their death, were shareholders of the kind described in subparagraph (i) or subparagraph (ii)

the act then  goes on to relies on  section 21 Provision of legal services  for the protection of legal services  and states

 (1) A person commits an offence who, not being a lawyer or an incorporated law firm,—(a) provides legal services in New Zealand; and(b) describes himself, herself, or itself as—(i) a lawyer; or(ii) a law practitioner; or(iii) a legal practitioner; or(iv) a barrister; or(v) a solicitor; or(vi) a barrister and solicitor; or(vii) an attorney-at-law; or(viii) counsel.

So does this mean that a  firm  which is not a law firm  does not commit an offence if it provides legal services and

  1. cannot be identified as a person
  2.  does not call itself  lawyer, barrister  etc  as above.

section 22   Misleading descriptions

It is clear that this section  is there for non lawyers  who hold themselves out to be lawyers   but  what if a  lawyer is holding a  fictional company out to be a law firm. –    section  23 does not   give much support, it appears to exonerate actions as long as  there is a lawyer  involved somewhere in the process.

But  Lawyers have rules too  , they are enforced  more or less through the law society . However the law society is frequently  conflicted in their  roles of  membership organisation and a disciplinary body.

It is  after all lawyers controlling their own  and   this   too of deception  has been  part of a lawyers artillery for  centuries  so why should they   give away a tool of deception  ? It suits lawyers and the law society to be vague about law firms  as this way  they preserve their  fidelity fund  as no one  can bring a claim against a fictional law firm.

The rules of conduct are  found here You may be wondering why  we have brought this issue up   .. well it is for very good reason   it   is one of those  twisty  nasty tings which makes lawyers always right and you always wrong..    In our opinion it is  Identity  deception/fraud.

Our director  engages a lawyer  .. she met  him in what she  believed to be the offices of his law firm  Equity law Barristers Limited  , he sends away a staff member to complete the contract and a contract emerges in the name of Equity law Chambers .

The law practice is  referred to as Equity law regularly in  correspondence and the current  web page at the time  shows  the  People involved with what is referred to as Equity law.

Equity Law barristers  Limited started its life as Equity law 2007 limited.  there are no other companies on the  companies register  which  bear the name “equity law ”  and the company now known as Equity law barristers is shown as having been  co  directed by the   the  lawyers  wife    and she also held 50% shareholding of the company   up until 16 November 2011  this  means that by the legal definition of  Incorporated law firm  equity law barristers was not and could not have been an incorporated law firm at the time when  it agreed , under a trading name to provide me with legal services.

The agreement was that  Barristers from within the chambers  supervised by the head of chambers, were to do the work . However the staff who worked on my matter were generally  new graduates who  had neither been admitted to the bar  and therefore did not have a practicing certificate ( you will also find that the law society  claims  privacy  when you ask   who had a practicing certificate  when )

Inquiries with the law society   have complicated matters further , they   tell me that Equity law barristers limited  was an ” an incorporated barristers practice ” from November 2008  they will not go so far as to say  if it was incorporated law firm  and they will not say  on what basis  it is an incorporated law firm. – vagueness is protecting their fidelity fund.

On the other hand the court is very strict on identities   a company is a separate legal  identity from a person   but here were have a situation where a company is using a trading name  and the director  has now claimed the trading name  as his  own. The law society  in their wisdom made a decision  naming the   director  of Equity law barristers limited and  told him to reduce his invoices  and refund our director.  However   he refused  we now have a gigantic mess where by  the  incorporated  barristers firm may not have been an incorporated law firm  and could not have provided  andy legal services, but because there was a lawyer  hanging about in the side office it is not an offence.

Another point of interest with this law firm  is that  the   shareholder   and other director the  Lawyers common law wife  appears to have had her signature forged. But that wont matter either they will have some explanation for that like a   sprained wrist .

It appears that the law applies strictly to us and loosely to lawyers .. that has to change.

This brings about massive identity issues and made us focus on the organizations which the  law society lists.

Many of the  ” law firms ”   are  just trading names, unidentified trading names

some of the limited liability companies  listed  do  not qualify as  Incorporated law firms  because of the share holding issue.

Solicitors trust accounts which  do have lawyers as directors and share holders  are not  incorporated law firms  but  would  qualify on face value as such .

This  whole area is a  massive deception

Stewart & Associates Equity Law  still appears on the   ” organisation  list”  it is neither a company nor is it a firm as it only has one employee a  lawyer who is not capable due to her lack of seniority to practice on her own account.

Also look at Brookfields  and Brookfields – Wellington branch  , who is it a trading name for  ? it could be any of these  or none.

It is time that the law society   tidied up their  ” find a lawyer  data base.  we the public should be able to go to the database and identify   the law firms  and  the lawyers practicing  in their own name.

 

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

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 .

Transparency International Finally uses the C word

launderwideTransparency International New Zealand has tried so hard to ignore the corruption in New Zealand  but has finally  conceded that    we have it.  In their latest news letter they mention  no less than three items .

New Zealand Shell Companies Involved in Huge Money-laundering Operation

New Zealand shell companies may have played a part in the biggest money-laundering operation in Eastern Europe. A recent investigation by the Organised Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) exposed an enormous US$20 billion ($24.4 billion) transfer of dirty Russian funds, dubbed ‘the Laundromat’. Read the story by Richard Meadows in stuff.co.nz.

The article by Richard Meadow refers to web site Naked Capitalism.  In a recent article   on that  site  Richard Smith   states

GT Group was linked to the biggest money-laundering operation in US history.

It does not  take much searching to  find that a variety of   GT group companies  which survived being struck off  have found  a new registered office at  the EQUITY GROUP , others have been registered  again using the names of the struck off companies as shown below.

Companies registered to the premises of Equity group  frequently use the very same  directors  identified as  proxy directors  in  international press   . In this case we look at Leah Toureleo  of  B.p. 1487, 1 Port Vila, Pot 540208, Port Vila , Vanuatu  who is as is mentioned in the  Richard meadows story NZ firm named in huge European scam

Leah Toureleo has the following  active companies

PHOENIX INTERNATIONAL GROUP CO., LIMITED (3934638) Registered Company

Now these next four companies have something in common they all had  the receptionist at  this  former law firm  as their  director , she resigned last year when she was warned her about  the dangers of being a proxy director ( see news links  below )   these companies   continue to exist with Leah Toureleo as  their director

How struck off lawyers continue to practice

P1010420It is business as usual at the premises of Equity law  Barristers  Limited, the only things that have changed is that the receptionist now  answers the phone   as  equity group. Ask her if it is a law firm and she will tell you that it is .

The sign in the foyer and   by the lift  at  44 Khyber pass road  still read  Equity Law . The business of Equity  law barristers   has allegedly been ” merged with  Stewart  an associates  lawyers limited a firm from Alexandra   operated by an associate of Equity law barristers  director  . Greg Stewart is also  director of  associates companies operated from the same premises EQUITY TRUST INTERNATIONAL LIMITED .  The share holder of this company is the ultimate shareholder of    companies such as Unihold . Maxhold which are  companies   directed by  Cypriot Manti EFFROSYNI  they have  a   interesting   origin and  have  owned  a multitude of off shore trust companies between them.  they had origins with Glenn SMITH ( THE COMPANY NET TRUST )  69 Ridge Road, Albany, Auckland , New Zealand see news item Web of intrigue

It appears that EQUITY TRUST INTERNATIONAL LIMITED  took over the administration  a number of    Glen Smith and Gt Taylor’s  companies .

Both Greg Stewart and  the director of Equity trust  placed their wives  in positions of ultimate share holders  of  companies which had been  operated by Smith and Taylor.

Although  the  web site of the  former law firm   has gone and the principal no longer holds a practicing certificate  a     you  tube  clip promoting the firm as a law firm  still exists

Today we obtained information from  Julia Leenoh   that she  is working  under the ” trading “name  Stewart and associates equity law  which she claims is  a branch of Stewart and Associates .

The fact that she is  a very new lawyer working  under what appears to be the supervision of a struck off lawyer appears to be  beside the point    see Lawyers to face forced competency test

 

 

 

Open letter to Greg Stewart of Stewart and associates Law.

lady justiceGood afternoon Greg.

This morning I had yet another    truck load of documents served on me    on behalf of    Stewart and associates equity law .  These documents were the same as  last  time  except that they have now been filed in the  court prior to service.

I also  received a notice   seeking to  change the   fourth defendant from Equity law  to equity law barristers Ltd.  there is however no clarification  of the   first plaintiff Equity trust International and I am  uncertain as to whether this is  the tax agent   or the   company which is involved in  international   trusts  which are regularly in the  overseas press .  for certainty the  companies I refer to are

I note that you are the  director  of the    former   and the share holder is your partners   wife   while the latter   is owned and directed by the wife

I also received a bankruptcy notice  which   is rather deficient   in many ways and did not have a  judgment  attached.

The only  sealed order which I received  was  fraudulently obtained  see  the detail under How to make an extra  couple of  grand and get the  registrar to sign off on it

That debt was addressed through   the   Set-Off Act 1735  as  per my communications with Mr Bogiatto .

Since communicating  the set off to him, I have heard no more about this matter  and have presumed that   the debt was settled   especially since the law society have    found that I was over charged  by some $30,000.

I am rather accustomed to  having a  payment reminder  or demand of  some sort  sent to me  if there was  still a sum outstanding. ESPECIALLY  given that  I   believe it has been settled.

section 4  of the lawyers and conveyancers act  makes it clear that you have to uphold the  rule of  law

It is therefore   quite in appropriate  for you to issue a bankruptcy demand for a   debt that has been  settled.

If there was an issue with the set off I woudl have thought that it woudl have been   appropriate for some one to have communicated  with me  since the   25 February when I  advised that the debt  was settled by that means.

I also asked for a proper set  of accounts  as  the sum which could be claimed  was not  $5038 .  The judge awarded costs on a 1 A basis  . work it out yourself    the  sealed order is a document  which Bogiatto caused to be sealed knowing it to be  false , ( please refer to my correspondence with him   )

I wish to advise you that your practice is being used for  fraud by continuing with the bankruptcy claim you are  a party to the offence . You  are taking this action  on  behalf of your client to  cause me   financial hardship and  waste my time .

the  action is an abuse of the process of the court   because

  1. The debt has been settled by way of offset  Act
  2.  the sum is fraudulently  obtained as it is greater than the  court awarded
  3. No communication has been received to advise that the  sum  is still considered as outstanding.
  4. You are  seeking to have it   paid to  EVGENCY  ??
  5. the sealed order has not been attached sealed order
  6. the sealed order is fraudulent as  1A   is  1 day allowance   not three   as I had pointed out in detail to  Bogiatto  both before and after the  order  was sealed.  the difference being $2,640.

I again advise you to do  due diligence  with your  directorship  of EQUITY TRUST INTERNATIONAL LIMITED

It would appear that your  wife Alice has taken over the directorship of EUROSTONE HOLDINGS LIMITED , the previous director  was  Evgeny’s  receptionist  who was uncomfortable  with the three directorships which  he had asked her to take on.  an it was only when I saw the international  connections  that she realised she was being used.

 see: http://www.nakedcapitalism.com/2014/06/new-zealand-shell-company-incorporation-franchises-round.html  which stated

  “Ulpiano Calderon MORENO, director of four live NZ companies and 106 companies struck off in the NZ registrar’s Great Deregistration Frenzy.”

Edgardo MEDINA

Company directorships

4 Florida (US)

59 New Zealand

1 Washington (US)

 All New Zealand companies have been struck off except these two .

I am going through all of the companies registered to  L 4, 44 Khyber pass  and sharing my findings with the international press  as  this   totally  integrates  with their work on  money laundering .  I will of course  be sharing this   with   the authorities.  Knows my investigation  skills that is why  he is attacking me , the more he attacks the more I  discover and publish  .

Please remember   the rules   something about a lawyer needing to remain independent and not using their office for fraud.  Also  look up  section 66 Crimes act .

so in summary  I cannot be bankrupted for  a sum which is

  1. not owing
  2. based on a fraudulently sealed order
  3. abuse of process

He wants me to get a lawyer  so that I  can   be out of pocket  even if the court  orders costs in my favour he wont pay it  , so I am not playing his game

Look forward  to hearing from you very soon , if not then I will  put all of this ( and more )  through to the  court   in the period prescribed .

law society complaint with regards to practicing by proxy

http://media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/236x/da/3d/95/da3d951bca819ffa1ae86c1d9b3c5645.jpgSent: Tuesday, 22 July 2014 12:26 p.m.
To: ‘complaints@lawsociety.org.nz’
Subject: complaint with regards to Stewart and associates equity law

I wish to make a complaint with regards to a fictional law firm

Stewart and associates lawyers are an incorporated law firm director Greg Stewart . shareholders are himself and his non lawyer wife
Equity law is another law firm sole director and shareholder is shown here

There is no person known as Stewart and associated equity law it is merely a concoction of an incorporated law firm and a firm belonging to a non practicing off lawyer .

In June this year Leenoh, Joo Yeon obtained a practicing certificate and is shown as being an employee of Stewart and associated equity law

I have established that this recent graduate is practicing from the premises of this company  at level 4 44 khyber pass Grafton

The letter head she uses has both law firms named on it . I note that on your roll she used the south Island practitioners phone number but she is not located there and by ringing that number you are given the Auckland number to ring which is the number for this former law firm.

Julia Leenoh has commenced proceedings on behalf of the former lawyer , I am a former client of his and he was directed to pay me $30,000 , he has appealed this to the LCRO and also chosen to take me to court for defamation for publishing items which relate to overseas directors who are involved in Money laundering and company fraud. He timed this to coincide with a notice of the LCRO advising that the matter will be dealt with soon.

• The directors whom I wrote about in particular Eric Vanagels and Inta bilder who through the company register trace back to New Zealand and directly tolevel 4 44 khyber pass road.
• the former lawyer has know that these articles have been there for a year since I drew his attention to them at the time  .
• I have amended the posts since he has attacked me in this way to include greater detail of his connection .

Leenoh appears to be being used as a proxy  . The file is appalling and the statement of claim names Greg Stewart as solicitor on record. However I do not believe that he has seen the file at all . The statement of claim was served without being filed in court . It was served with a notice of proceedings which had not been filed in court and a bundle of irrelevant documents .

A few days later she sent a notice of proceedings by mail with the covering letter as above . We have no way of knowing if the documents filed in court are the same as those which were served on us . We have brought this matter to their attention but it is apparently being ignored .

The proceedings are vexatious and intent to force us to incur a cost in hiring a solicitor due to the matter being high court and their objection to the company being represented by a lay litigant / director .

My complaint is about the manner in which Leenoh is being used as a proxy and working under the name of a fictional law firm which uses and Auckland address and an Alexandra phone number

In the interest of transparency I am keeping the public up to speed on this matter on the transparency Web site

International fraud connection with Equity law

Erik VanagelsEquity law is  situated at Level 4, 44 Khyber Pass Rd, Grafton, Auckland, its  sole director and shareholder is  available through the  companies office

It would appear that Equity trust  is involved in the maintenance of registration   of  several  companies,  which  have been reported in the international press, as being  involved with  international fraud and corruption . such companies are  Falcona sustems  , Unihold , Maxhold   see naked Capitalism ”  New Zealand, Fresh From Its Service to Mexican Drug Lords, Helps Out the Russian Mafia

These companies came to the attention of the international press   in 2012   Unihold  Limited  was involved in an international money laundering  scam see story  ” Behind the Proxies”  here

When you  look up  the register  you will see that   the  director at the time was a Mr Erik Vanagels from Panama and that the company is  registered to Level 4, 44 Khyber Pass Road. Vanagels reputedly a Latvian alcoholic had well over 200 New Zealand companies  under his belt  the majority of  which have now been stuck off  however 2 companies remain  on the resister Being Bergstone  and Eurozone Corporation  . While Bergstone is about to be struck off due to  no annual return being filed, Steven Green , director of Equity trust International has  filed an annual return for Eurozone there by keeping the  company directed by this renowned proxy director alive.

Erik Vanangels,  international man of mystery ,  is actually a Latvian  who according to a news item  is a ” hard-drinking pensioner in Latvia “ is simply amazing that his address should also be “Buzon 1987, Zone 9a, Carrasquilla & Via Espana, Panama City, Panama”  (is that Buzon or BOOZE ON )  see also Fraud trail leads to OAP’s tiny flat

One would  expect  that if  a  company  with  integrity  had been caught out by  a bad deal such as the 150 million dollar money laundering  incident  that they would steer well clear  of Mr  Vanagels instead we find  that a number of other companies are registered to  him  courtesy of Equity law  . These companies include  GRANDWEST LIMITED   , DARTHOLM CAPITAL LIMITED ,WOODPORT LIMITED ,INTRANS LIMITED,FAIRPORT LIMITED,BRANDGOLD BUSINESS LIMITED and more  all owned by Unihold.  (It has to be noted that  by  January 2014 these companies had all been struck off by the registrar of companies.)

This address is  also the registered office for  other  companies such as ENTROFIELD LIMITED owned by SWEDHOLD LIMITED owned by  GENHOLD LIMITED owned by TRUST (NZ) HOLDINGS LIMITED owned by the occupants of  Flat 8a, 4 Short Street, Auckland Central, Auckland, 1010 , New Zealand  .

The shareholder  is the   wife of  a former lawyer the address  is the one which  he   also used as his own address, this property is owned  by her  and is currently up for sale.The real estate agent has advertised the unit as “Owners Moving Overseas”  Update :it has been sold to LSE limited a company owned and directed  by lawyer george  Bogiatto

Last year we  found that the lawters wife held some 1500  companies some of these were transferred to Grigori CHELOUDIAKOV of Beach road Te Atatu  , we failed to locate him until we realized that he  is one and the same as Greg Shelton   who  appears to be yet another of  equities proxy directors  .

It appears that he has been using his name  Gregory Shelton  for many  years  but in 2013 Steven James GREEN ( EQUITY TRUST INTERNATIONAL LIMITED ) records  him as Grigori CHELOUDIAKOV   for several companies formerly under the   directorship of Inta Bilder  and owned by Unihold . The same side ways shuffle also occurred  with  Crestpoint trade   where  shelton briefly became a shareholder  and was  removed again placing Maxhold back  on the register .   Maxhold and Unihold are both ultimately owned by    as per this flow diagram click for enlargement

The full spread sheet can be seen here  companies.  We have done our best  but  due to many changes   errors  could exist  so please check all information .

Staff members at Equity are frequently asked to be  directors and  shareholders, the  recent receptionist  was a   proxy   director for several companies  one of  which was 4-way Logistics limited   when she resigned the directorship was taken over  by Leah TOURELEO  who according to   open corporates  holds directorships in a raft of international companies and is yet another Proxy director.

We were  told that  the remuneration for this is  $300.00 per year  .

An immigration service also operates from this address  http://www.immigrationnz.co.nz/index.php/our-people  and  actively  solicits investors into New Zealand  to gain residency .the  web site is owned by  Equity law Ltd Whois Search _ immigrationnz.co.nz

Perhaps MR Erik Vanagels   should apply .

* this article was updated 14/7/2014 to address issues  of alleged defamation by  and associates . Everything in this post  and others is factual   it is truth and honest opinion  . The  complaint came  just  five days after the LCRO ( law complaints review office ) confirmed  a date for the lawyers hearing .  The  court papers are  located here   statement of claim , since then he  has also taken Bankruptcy action against our director ,  originally on  false documents, the law society had decided that he owed her nearly $30,000 something he has appealed.

We have written  to lawyer Greg Stewart who is the    solicitor on record ,  there have been many opportunities given for amendment by the Plaintiffs  but hey choose to be vague.  There have now been no less than  four offers to correct amend   adjust the content.   Everything published here is   truth and honest opinion and  published in the public interest.

Greg Stewart is also a director of  Equity trust International yet he has not declared this to the court.

The law  firm , now  apparently operated  by Greg Stewart  of Alexandra  through Joo Yeon ( julia ) Leenoh is  behind  many other companies  which also have  their  address  at 4, 44 Khyber Pass Rd, Grafton, Auckland, one such company is equity trust International Limited  whose  sole   shale holder is his wife and the directors are Lawyer Greg Stewart   and  a Mr Steven Green  of Manurewa .
