Sonny Ramdeo slapped with a superseding indictment – 12th Apr 2013

sonny ramdeoIt is becoming harder for the erstwhile CEO of EZ Jet Sonny Ramdeo. He is being slapped with more charges in a superseding indictment filed yesterday in a Florida Federal Court. Ramdeo whose trial was scheduled to start in two weeks, will now have to wait until October this year, before he faces trial. So Ramdeo is now seeking to have his pretrial liberty restored. He is still in custody and clearly does not want to remain there until October.

Yesterday the US Government extended the net it had cast on Ramdeo’s activities. Ramdeo faces more charges of Mail Fraud and Wire Fraud. Now he is also on Money Laundering charges in the superseding indictment. In that indictment, the prosecution is saying that Ramdeo caused wire transfers of money from the EZ-Jet GT lnc. bank accounts at PNC Bank in the United States  to various banking establishments throughout the United States. These transactions transferred monies from the PNC business banking accounts of EZ-Jet GT Inc. to business operating accounts of various corporations conducting business dealings with EZ-Jet GT Inc., and that  included Dynamic Airways, Vision Airlines and BP Products, United States.

The EZ Jet head in his bid for bail denied that what he did was any type of fraud. He claimed there is a bona fide defense. The transactions cannot be considered acts constituting wire fraud, because in fact such transactions were based on the bank records provided to date and were funds that were actually immediately used for tax payments to various taxing authorities.

Ramdeo was snared in the fraud allegations after his short lived upstart airline went belly up financially in less than a year of operation.

EZJet flew into the Guyana market with extremely low fares but lots of questions surrounding its operations.

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to
    see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is
    now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic
    but I had to share it with someone!
