Jail for Mayor Ford election fraud, and Weizhen Tang financial fraud
December 15, 2012 — Coincidentally, two candidates who ran for Mayor of Toronto face accusations of fraud, from the City of Toronto elections of October 25, 2012,
One candidate, Rob Ford, won the election and is now an embattled Mayor of Toronto. While Weizhen Tang is now a convicted ponzi scheme fraud, allegedly cheating his investors of some $52 Million.
By further coincidence, both Mayor Rob Ford and Weizhen Tang, the self-proclaimed Chinese Warren Buffett, face major moments in the January of the New Year 2013, in their battles against fraud accusations.
An audit of Mayor Rob Ford’s campaign finances will be released next month.
Ford’s campaign allegedly breached the Municipal Elections Act, exceeding the legal spending limit, by over some $150,000! And by having a Ford family company pay some $78,000 of the campaign expenses!
If true, major breaches of election fraud behaviour, not easily explained away.
Meanwhile, in January 2013, the sentencing hearing resumes for Weizhen Tang, convicted of ponzi scheme fraud. So far, Government “Crown” prosecutors, Mr. Robert Gattrell, and Mr. Gavin Macdonald, have indicated they are seeking a jail sentence of 8-10 years for the convicted Chinese Warren Buffett.
While Tang and his amicus lawyer, Mr. Peter Boushy, have offered a legal precedents, a case, suggesting that Tang should face a lesser punishment.
Tang has consistently claimed that he has no money, not even the money to pay for his legal defence. During his trial, and now during sentencing, Tang has been self-represented; thus, the assignment by the Judge of lawyer, Peter Boushy, as amicus.
Weizhen Tang has consistently professed his innocence
Even after his conviction on October 30, 2012, Weizhen Tang claims that he should NOT face ANY jail time, though he is convicted one of the largest ponzi scheme frauds in Canada. Weizhen Tan claims that he is innocent, and that the Canadian and American justice systems are racist against him; including individuals such as the presiding Judge and prosecutors in Weizhen Tang’s investigation and trial: Honourable Justice Alfred O’Marra; prosecutors, Crown Robert Gattrell and Crown Gavin Macdonald, and the regulatory securities OSC lead investigating officer, Jeff Thompson.
Upon the conclusion of the criminal case against Weizhen Tang, the OSC, Ontario Securities Commission, is likely to continue its legal actions against Weizhen Tang.
Legal experts suggest that Tang faces 5-7 years of jail, given his total lack of remorse for his investors; and his lack of respect for the legal system, Justice Alfred O’Marra. Some experts suggest that being a former senior top prosecutor, Justice Alfred O’Marra, shall likely “come down very, very hard,” on Chinese Warren Buffett, Weizhen Tang; sending both a message to Tang, and to other potential criminals targeting the decent, hardworking peoples of Canada and the world.
While Mayor Rob Ford, if found to have violated the Act, and committed election fraud, could be fined up to $25,000, or be removed from office.
In a strange, twisted twist, convicted ponzi scheme fraud, Weizhen Tang, suggests that should Mayor Rob Ford be removed from office, Tang would like to mount another run for Mayor of Toronto. At the time of the City of Toronto 2010 election, Weizhen Tang was already formally charged with organizing one of Canada’s biggest criminal ponzi scheme frauds; and was actually on bail, as he campaigned for Mayor of Toronto, Canada’s largest city.
Weizhen Tang also suggests that the legal system should be tougher on true fraud schemes –though, of course, Tang, himself pleads innocence in his own ponzi scheme conviction. Tang notes that there is NO, or very seldom, jail sentences for politicians, convicted of crimes and fraud.
Interestingly, Tang suggests that fraud by prominent politicians and financiers should face serious jail time! Tang points out that most Canadian financial frauds have NOT even faced criminal charges; citing Sino-Forest, Joe Deng.
Is Weizhen Tang joining the calls of other Toronto citizens and voters, who suggest that Mayor Rob Ford should face criminal charges and jail time, should he be found guilty of election fraud?!
So January of the New Year 2013 offers the possibility that two of Toronto’s 2010 Mayoralty candidates shall be faced with fraud convictions: Mayor Rob Ford for election fraud; and Weizhen Tang for criminal ponzi scheme fraud.
