“Let justice take its course”

I cannot and will not be ignoring the arrest of Pilatus Bank Chairman Ali Sadr Hasheminejad even though I am a one man band, much like Manuel Delia.  He was up in the early hours of the morning blogging about it but somehow managed to miss a local arrest here for 36 hours straight.  Anyway, that’s old news now.
This is the big news story today and I won’t be pretending I didn’t see it.   You may read here the entire text of the Bill of Indictment  issued against the Pilatus Chairman who has been in the line of fire for over a year now with everyone and his brother trying to link him to the Maltese government, particularity the Office of the Prime Minister and Joseph Muscat himself.
The pro Simon Busuttil media was quick to announce that Ali Sadr Hashemi Nejad has been arrested in Dulles Virgina and indicted in a Manhattan court charged with participating in a scheme to evade US sanctions against Iran.
The charges brought against him are not related to his Malta registered bank Pilatus.  As the text of the Bill of Indictment itself cautions toward the end, “the entirety of the text of the Indictment and the description of the Indictment set forth herein constitute only allegations, and every fact described should be treated as an allegation”.
As Therese Commodini Cachia would put it, “let justice take its course”.
