Even his fictitious "nobility" and Bilderberger credentials may not be able to protect notorious con man "Lord" Conrad Black.
The noose tightens even more around international racketeer "Lord" Conrad Black as Chicago-based US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, who is also the special prosecutor in the Valerie Plame-CIA leak, has indicted David Radler, former publisher of Black's Chicago Sun-Times, charging him with criminal fraud in stealing $32 million from the paper's parent company, Hollinger International.
In its heyday, Hollinger International owned more than 100 newspapers, including the Chicago Sun-Times and Jerusalem Post.
David Radler, who was president and chief operating officer of Hollinger, in-house attorney Mark Kipnis, and Ravelston Corp. Ltd., Black's insolvent Toronto-based holding company, were charged in a seven-count indictment of federal fraud for diverting more than $32 million through a complex and secret series of transactions from Hollionger International.
