Politiken September 22: A giant scandal in the US involving amounts of more than 10 million US dollars has connections to conciliatory meetings in the Jewish community in Denmark. The FBI demands affidavits.

A high profile American Danish swindle affair involving more than $ 10,000,000 compelled the American Federal police (FBI) to investigate exactly what happened during two conciliatory meetings which took place in Denmark.

At these meetings Chief Rabbi Bent Lexner from the Mosaic Religious Community [Mosaisk Trosssamfund] tried to mediate between a group of rejected American investors and their lawyers on one side, and the Danish lawyer of the two fraud suspects on the other, the newspaper 'Borsen' ['The Stock Market'] reports.

The American Federal Police, FBI has asked the American investor Jackie Kreitzman and her Danish lawyer, Leslie Rabuchin, to deliver an affidavit on what went on during two reconciliatory meetings with Chief Rabbi Bent Lexner.

Aimed at ending dispute in mutual agreement

According to documents in possession of the newspaper Borsen the purpose of the meetings was to find an amicable settlement in a conflict between on one side several rejected American investors, represented by attornies Leslie Rabuchin and Max Krasnik on the other side the Danish company Morgan European Holdings and its owners John and Marian Morgan, represented by attorney Eli Heckscher.

Keeping it inside the family

'The reason for the meetings with Chief Rabbi Bent Lexner was that all the participants are of Jewish persuasion, and because I as a life long friend and former business partner of Eli Heckscher wanted to give Eli Heckscher a possibility to explain himself, and to correct the factual circumstances, so that the case if possible could be closed in mutual agreement,' it says in attorney Leslie Rubachin's complaint to the Disciplinary Board [Advokatnaevnet] about his former business partner Eli Heckscher.
