THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME CHABAD’S EMISSARIES AND RESPECTED RABBIS HAVE HAD COLLATERAL DRUG CHARGES ASSOCIATED WITH MONEY LAUNDERING CHARGES!
WHEN WILL CHABAD FINALLY SPEAK TO THESE ALLEGATIONS?
The following is a copy of a letter that relates to the arrest of Rabbi Zalman Zirkind (on money laundering charges) and a number of other defendants, including his own family members. The news articles and charges against the Zirkind clan suggest that this family has a history of inappropriate financial dealings and that these charges may be directly connected to a larger drug trade.
We have highlighted the section of the letter that could lead one to conclude that Zirkind was actively involved involved in the heroin trade. If we are wrong here, this will be corrected.
We suggest, that Chabad needs to get involved and either publicly separate itself or acknowledge the illegalities occurring within its organization. The dirty money obtained from money laundering and drug trafficking is presumably being used to help fund Chabad, whether they were aware of it or not. And, if not, the money should be surrendered or returned.
Rather, Mr Goldstein, 34, was arrested at his parents’ Bellevue Hill house last May, the same day he took delivery of a package of infant formula that was supposed to contain concealed MDMA and ketamine, according to a police fact sheet seen by the Herald.
The drugs were part of what police say was a months-long scheme that used the dark web to buy illicit drugs and import them from the Netherlands to Australia via the postal service of a number of European countries.
The baby formula was intercepted by Border Force officers at Sydney Airport and the drugs concealed in the tins were replaced by an inert substance before being delivered to Mr Goldstein’s Bondi Beach address – by a NSW Police officer disguised as a UPS driver.
Addressed to a Cheyenne Gold, the package contained four silver packages including 194 grams of MDMA, a “crystalline substance” proven to be ketamine, brown and white tablets marked iPhoneX proven to be MDMA and “a quantity of red and white shaped tablets marked QDance” also containing MDMA.
Police claim the package was one of a number imported by Mr Tenenboim, from Vaucluse, a self-described “elite hacker” who allegedly masterminded a scheme to import a huge volume of drugs from the dark web worth millions of dollars to addresses across Sydney’s eastern suburbs.
Mr Tenenboim was arrested at the apartment in Diamond Bay Road he shared with his fiancee in June last year in a dramatic raid in which police allegedly seized $70,000 in cash, bitcoin to the value of $350,000 and a diamond ring.
He was initially facing 45 serious charges, but those have been downgraded to just seven.
