Nemazee Fallout
http://www.nydailynews.com/blogs/dailypolitics/2009/08/nemazee-fallout.html
August 25, 2009

Here's the US Attorney of the Southern District Preet Bharara's complaint against Democratic mega-donor Hassan Nemazee, the chairman of Nemazee Capital Corp. who was arrested today on charges that he used phony documents to trick Citigroup Inc. into lending him up to $74 million.

Nemazee is perhaps best known as a fundraiser for both President Obama and former Sen. Hillary Clinton.

He also served as national finance chairman for the DSCC when it was headed by Sen. Chuck Schumer, which is sort of ironic, considering that Bharara was, until very recently, working as chief counsel to the senior senator of New York.

Nemazee has maxed out in contributions to both Schumer and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, giving them a total of $4,800 each (two $2,400 checks to Schumer in April - one for the primary, one for the general - and two of the same amount to Gillibrand in June).

Woops. I missed some additional contributions. Nemazee gave Gillibrand $1,000 in 2005 and another $1,000 in 2006. He gave two $2,000 donations to Rep. Carolyn Maloney in 2005. There was also $151,700 to the DSCC between March 2006 and March 2009.

I'm still awaiting word on whether this money will be returned.

Nemazee, Political Fundraiser, Charged With Fraud (Update1)
http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=aRJzVy_8GrIM
By David Glovin and Kristin Jensen


Aug. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Hassan Nemazee, chairman of Nemazee Capital Corp. and a fundraiser for President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, was arrested on a bank fraud charge and ordered held overnight pending his release tomorrow on $25 million bail.

Nemazee was charged with using phony documents to trick Citigroup Inc. into lending him as much as $74 million. The financier got the loan by telling Citibank he held accounts with hundreds of millions of dollars that could serve as collateral, U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said today in a statement.

Nemazee, 59, brought to court in Manhattan this afternoon, is to be released tomorrow with his bond guaranteed by a $20 million Manhattan residence and his $8 million home in Katonah, New York. He will then be held under house arrest at his Manhattan apartment, subject to electronic monitoring. U.S. Magistrate Judge Ronald Ellis called the $25 million bond the “most onerous” he had ever seen.

The financier used fake addresses and phone numbers controlled by him to mislead the bank, prosecutors said. The accounts “either never existed or had been closed years before Nemazee submitted the documents referencing those accounts,” Bharara said in the statement.

Nemazee repaid the loan to Citibank yesterday, a day after he was interviewed by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, prosecutors said. The interview took place at Newark Liberty International Airport as Nemazee was checking in for a flight to Rome.

Hsu Case

Another prominent fundraiser for Democrats, Norman Hsu, was convicted by a federal jury in May of campaign finance fraud for making tens of thousands of dollars in illegal donations. He also pleaded guilty to cheating investors of more than $20 million in a Ponzi scheme. He has yet to be sentenced.

The cases of Nemazee, Hsu and other fundraising scandals point up the problems with a system that requires politicians to raise millions of dollars privately, said Clyde Wilcox, a professor of government at Georgetown University in Washington.

“Both parties have so many people in these categories,” Wilcox said. “This seems less a personal failure of Clinton and Obama than a more structural problem.”

The financier is represented by Marc Mukasey of Bracewell & Giuliani, who declined to comment immediately. The lawyer is the son of Michael Mukasey, U.S. attorney general in the Bush administration. The younger Mukasey also represents Frank DiPascali, an admitted accomplice of swindler Bernard Madoff.

Democratic Fundraiser

Nemazee is one of the leading fundraisers for the Democratic Party. He served as national finance chairman for the Senate committee that works to elect Democrats when it was run by New York Senator Charles Schumer.

In the 2008 presidential campaign, Nemazee raised at least $100,000 for Clinton, and then went on to bring in at least $500,000 for Obama after he defeated her in the primary campaign, according to the Washington watchdog group Public Citizen. Clinton is now secretary of state.

Nemazee also served as New York finance chairman for Massachusetts Senator John Kerry during his 2004 run for the presidency.

Nemazee Capital’s Web site carries excerpts of stories that highlight his connections. The first, a Washington Times piece about former President Bill Clinton’s recent mission to North Korea, describes Nemazee as a “friend and longtime Clinton supporter.”

“We are working with the authorities on this matter,” said Shannon Bell, a Citigroup spokeswoman.

Obama Spokesman

Tommy Vietor, an Obama administration spokesman, and Ian Kelly, a State Department spokesman, declined to comment on the arrest. Brian Fallon, a Schumer spokesman, said $4,800 donated by Nemazee to Schumer in April would be donated to the foreclosure prevention program of the Neighborhood Housing Service. He declined to comment further.

Nemazee Capital, established in 1987, invests in health care, media, oil and natural gas and other industries, according to the firm’s Web site. The firm has more than $3 billion under management, according to a July press release.

Nemazee was born in Washington in 1950 and graduated with honors from Harvard University in 1972, according to his Web site.

The online site lists affiliations with institutions including the RAND Center for Middle East Public Policy, the Asia Society, Harvard’s Center for International Affairs and Nemazee Hospital in Shiraz, Iran, which was built into a modern facility by his father, Mohamed Nemazee, according to the site.

The case is U.S. v. Nemazee, 09-mag-1927, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York (Manhattan).

http://www.nemazee.com/

Established in 1987, Nemazee Capital has, directly or through associated entities, invested in a wide variety of businesses: healthcare, media, oil and gas, insurance, investment banking, asset management, newspapers, real estate development, technology, and communications.

Hassan Nemazee has more than 30 years of successful investing experience across numerous sectors.

Mr. Nemazee created Nemazee Holdings in the early 1970’s and began his career in financial services by establishing a joint venture between himself and AIG which, at the time, was unique for the insurance giant to enter into. Around this same time Nemazee created a joint venture for the establishment of a bank with Morgan Guaranty Trust Company, predecessor to JP Morgan & Co.

Hassan Nemazee also established joint ventures in the real estate and construction industries with international companies such as Linbeck Construction Co. of Houston, TX and Knight, Frank, and Rutley of the United Kingdom.

Nemazee Capital evolved out of Nemazee Holdings and originally focused on real estate development. The company has developed successful projects such as the 300,000 sq ft, I.M. Pei designed One West Loop building in Houston, TX and a 500 acre master plan development of residential, commercial and retail properties in the greater Washington, DC metro area.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

http://www.nemazeehospital.com/index.html

Hassan Nemazee and the Nemazee family have long been involved with philanthropic endeavors in pursuit of advanced healthcare. Nemazee Hospital was founded by Mohamed Nemazee who was born in 1896 in Bombay, India, to Iranian parents who resided in the Far East. Nemazee spent his early years in Hong Kong, where he went to school. He was primarily a self-educated man who built a considerable fortune through a successful shipping enterprise based in Hong Kong between the two world wars.

During World War II, Nemazee was offered the post of Commercial Advisor at the Iranian Embassy in Washington, D.C., which he decided to accept after the war. On his journey from Hong Kong to the U.S. he travelled through Iran. Although he had never lived there, his family was from Shiraz--the city of fabled poets--and links had been maintained over the years. As his late father had built a health-care clinic in Shiraz, Nemazee decided to rehabilitate the facility and provide it with new equipment.

It soon became apparent, however, that the public health needs of Iran transcended the scope of this project and he therefore decided to establish a new and larger facility at his own expense. But private philanthropy on a large, public scale was an alien concept in Iran, where political and religious institutions dominated, so he needed a novel approach to achieve his goal.

Nemazee understood that public hygiene and health were intimately connected. While in Tehran, he realized the city had no water works—drinking water was provided by open sewers know as jubes, with untreated wastewater spreading contagious diseases. Finding Shiraz in a similar situation, in 1945 he built the Shiraz Water Works as a preventive health measure that would function in tandem with the medical facility he planned to build. As well as a preventive health measure, the Water Works was designed to be a gainful enterprise. It would generate enough income to supplement the needs of the hospital, which would be a charitable facility offering free treatment for most patients. The Water Works could charge its customers the price of water and earn enough to allow for expansion as needed. And so it happened that piped water was available in Shiraz well in advance of Tehran.

In the meantime, Nemazee retired from his business, took up his post in Washington and married and had two children, Hassan and Susan. In Washington he developed his initial concept into an integrated plan to build a modern medical center, with a medical school and a nursing school for women, all supported by the revenues generated by the public water works. He also began to purchase several million square meters of land in Shiraz on which to situate the medical center, where construction began in late 1949.

As a successful entrepreneur, he understood the need to establish an organization to coordinate the plans for the medical center. He created the charitable Iran Foundation in New York and enlisted the aid of a young, American-trained Iranian doctor, Torab Mehra, to help him realize his ambition to advance the cause of health and education in Iran.

Because in the late 1940s there were not enough properly trained doctors and nurses in Iran, prominent doctors and scientists in the U.S. were invited to become part of the Foundation to help recruit American doctors and nurses willing to go to Iran to work at the medical center and train a generation of Iranian doctors and nurses, and to attract Iranian expatriates in the medical field to return.

In 1953, when Nemazee Hospital and Nemazee School of Nursing were inaugurated, they were state-of-the art facilities, far superior to any medical complex existing in either Iran or the rest of the Middle East. By this time, Nemazee had donated $10 million (equivalent to $100 million dollars today) of his own money, all derived from his shipping business in Hong Kong, to construct and maintain the medical facility and water works.

Nemazee Hospital, Nemazee School of Nursing and surrounding facilities also laid the groundwork for the development of a full-fledged university system constructed on the American model. When in 1960 Shah Mohamed Reza Pahlavi commissioned a study, conducted by the University of Pennsylvania with funding from USAID, that selected Shiraz instead of Tehran as the site for a university to expand educational opportunities for students and entice them to remain in Iran, the primary reason was that the Nemazee medical center complex provided the best base on which to build. Shiraz University was thus created and became the most advanced, western style academic institute in the Middle East. The Shiraz University Medical School was established as a teaching arm for the Nemazee Hospital doctors. Many of the university’s facilities—the library, dormitories and main campus—were subsequently built on his land.

The hospital and medical school transformed Iran’s medical and educational systems and the separate three-year school of nursing created opportunities previously unimaginable for women. Another innovation was that the hospital and nursing school were situated within a landscaped park providing villas for housing up to 40 doctors and their families.

During construction of the hospital, Nemazee resided part of the time in Tehran. In late 1953, he was named Minister Without Portfolio, acting primarily as an advisor on oil and economics, and remained in that post in two successive governments, headed by General Fazlollah Zahedi and Hossein Ala, until 1955 when he resigned and returned to Washington. At this time he began to research and write a multi-volume book in Persian on the history of civilization, which would be published posthumously by his son, Hassan Nemazee.

Until 1959, all doctors, nurses and technical staff at the medical center and nursing school were recruited from the U.S. The Iran Foundation worked as a liaison office to encourage educated Iranians in the medical field to return to take up employment at Nemazee Hospital, and in time U.S.-educated Iranians replaced the U.S. staff. The hospital continued to ensure access to the latest advances in medicine for both patients and doctors. Having performed the first kidney and liver transplants in Iran, the hospital became the leading facility in advanced transplants in the nation, while still being recognized for its excellence in a number of other areas. By the late 1950s, Nemazee Hospital had a world-class reputation and had become the most progressive medical facility in the Middle East. It became a model for philanthropists from other countries who shared a common vision and goal of improving and extending health services and medical education.

Nemazee later set up an Iranian-based foundation to take over the functions of the American-based Iran Foundation. It oversaw the various entities under the umbrella of the Nemazee Moghufeh (charitable organization). In 1962 Nemazee returned to live in Iran as trustee of the Moghufeh.

Nemazee also established the Honaristan, a philanthropic vocational school under the auspices of the Moghufeh. The purpose of the school was to provide citizens of Shiraz with necessary vocational skills. In 1970 he received an honorary doctorate from Shiraz University, for which he submitted a thesis on poetics, a subject he had explored in his book.

Mohamed Nemazee died in Shiraz in 1972 and was buried on the Nemazee Hospital grounds, where a statue of him was erected in his honor. On the day of his funeral the citizens of Shiraz declared a holiday out of respect and gratitude for his many contributions to the city. The sick and the needy continue to visit his grave daily to pray and give thanks. His philanthropic legacy has never been equalled in Iran.

Today, Nemazee Hospital remains a leading medical facility, training Iran’s future doctors and nurses and serving the local community. Its impact on health services and medical and nursing education in Iran cannot be overestimated. It has kept faith with its founder’s goal to provide those in need with the highest level of medical care while recruiting a staff of dedicated doctors and nurses with the most advanced training and equipment at their disposal. Nemazee’s vision and generosity continue to improve the life of Iranians from all walks of life every day.

Today, the Nemazee family work continues through Mohamed Nemazee’s son, Hassan.

Hassan Nemazee is involved with several corporate and international organizations, including the Council on Foreign Relations and the RAND Center for Middle East Public Policy, and remains active in many philanthropic causes and charities worldwide.

Hassan Nemazee serves as the Chairman of Nemazee Capital and as Co-Chair of Carret Asset Management and Brean Murray Carret. Mr. Nemazee's international investment experience spans three decades across several industries and countries. He is a graduate of Harvard University.

The Manhattan district attorney's office has smashed a sinister plot to smuggle nuclear weapons materials to Iran through unwitting New York banks, the Daily News has learned.

Officials plan to unseal a 118-count indictment Tuesday accusing a Chinese national of setting up a handful of fake companies to hide that he was selling millions of dollars in potential nuclear materials to Tehran.

"This case will cut off a major source of supply to Iran and it shows how they are going ahead full steam to get a nuclear bomb. Long-range missiles they pretty much have already," a law enforcement source close to the case said.

"We think it is one of the largest suppliers of weapons of mass destruction to Iran."

Experts say Iran, under the leadership of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, appears close to amassing enough nuclear material to make an atom bomb. A United Nations embargo bans Iran from acquiring the high-tech metals needed to make a long-range nuclear weapon a reality.

The indictment will outline the financial conspiracy behind 58 different transactions, including shipments of various banned materials from China to Iran between 2006 and late 2008.

Among them:

    * 33,000 pounds of a specialized aluminum alloy used almost exclusively in long-range missile production.
    * 66,000 pounds of tungsten copper plate, which is used in missile guidance systems.
    * 53,900 pounds of maraging steel rods, a superhard metal used in uranium enrichment and to make the casings for nuclear bombs.

The recipient is believed to have been a subsidiary of the Iranian Defense Ministry.

The suspect, who is not believed to be in the U.S., set up four bogus import-export companies that did business with six Iranian shell firms, one source said.

"They took elaborate steps to conceal the identity of the shipper and the recipient," the source said.

The deals went through "several" New York banks, which cooperated when the alleged plot was uncovered.

"The New York banks were completely unaware," the source said.

Authorities first stumbled over the scheme seven months ago in an unrelated probe into Iranian money-laundering through Lloyd's, a British bank.

In January, Lloyd's paid a $350 million fine to settle accusations it "stripped" information from Iranian money transfers to New York banks, hiding where the cash came from.

Officials said they suspected that money was also used to finance Iran's nuke program.

"The important thing is to put sunlight on these deals," the law enforcement source said.

Wooing Clinton Backers for Obama’s Benefit
Sept 23, 2008

The New York Times print and online editions reported the efforts Hassan Nemazee is making to ensure Barack Obama's victory in the upcoming November elections. Nemazee has been involved in Democratic politics for many years, and after Barack Obama received the Democratic nomination with Hillary Clinton's cessation of her campaign, Nemazee harnessed his energies and talents for Obama. (Nemazee is a former Clinton national finance chairman.)

Nemazee has brought all his fund-raising skills - that until recently he was utilizing for Hillary Clinton - to the Obama campaign, and he hosted an event at his own home that raised over $400,000 from people who were all Clinton backers whom he had enlisted. (Nemazee held another fund-raising event at a hotel near his home, and over these two events he raised over $5 million.)

Top Dem money man charged with fraud

By Matthew Mosk (Contact)

Originally published 04:44 p.m., August 25, 2009, updated 05:01 p.m., August 25, 2009

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/aug/25/top-democratic-money-man-charged-fraud/

One of the nation's top Democratic fundraisers, who helped bring hundreds of thousands of dollars into the presidential campaigns of both Hillary Rodham Clinton and later Barack Obama, was arrested Tuesday on charges that he masterminded a $74 million fraud against giant lender Citigroup Inc.

The United States attorney in New York announced the arrest of Hassan Nemazee two days after FBI agents interviewed him at Newark Liberty International Airport as he was checking in for a flight to Italy.

Mr. Nemazee, 59, long has been a major figure in Democratic money circles, served as a co-chairman of Mrs. Clinton's presidential bid and was a central figure involved in efforts to help unify the party after the divisive 2008 primary season.

In earlier election cycles he headed up fundraising efforts for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

According to the complaint, Mr. Nemazee engaged in a fraudulent scheme to induce Citigroup to lend him up to $74 million based on false representations that he owned millions of dollars in collateral.

The complaint alleges that Mr. Nemazee fabricated documents to make it appear that other financial institutions held hundreds of millions of dollars of his money, which then could be used to secure loans for him.

Many of the documents at issue provided Citibank with contact information for the financial institutions that, in reality, led back to Mr. Nemazee. "As a result," the complaint says, "in the event anyone at Citibank made an effort to confirm the existence of the assets . . . they would in fact be contacting a telephone number assigned to Nemazee himself, and not any financial institution."

Questions about Mr. Nemazee's financial dealings more than a decade ago wound up scuttling his nomination by President Clinton to be ambassador to Argentina. In that case, the Senate sent back his nomination after a Forbes magazine article suggested that Mr. Nemazee had gained advantages by claiming a business venture he was involved with was "100 percent Hispanic-owned." In fact, the report said, Mr. Nemazee, an Iranian-American, owned 49 percent.

Mr. Nemazee vehemently denied any wrongdoing in that incident. Attempts to reach him and his attorney Tuesday were unsuccessful.
