Subject: Amended Statement: Civil and Economic Rights Violation, False Imprisonment of Beninese Citizen in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire. Banking fraud, EcobankBJ, Benin

Gentlemen,

My name is Larry D. Haight, I am a US Citizen, in full knowledge of my legal rights of non incrimination. All of the following statements may be considered as under oath, this document may be used as a legal deposition in any Court. I am informed that Court Officials and EcobankBJ Officials are subject to bribery and that litigation in the Republic of Benin is subject to corruption. I am transmitting this email publicly to prevent additional kidnapping and false arrest. This is not a privileged communication, it may be disseminated at will by any party.

This email is directed to:

The United Nations, it concerns the Civil and Economic Rights violation of a Citizen of the Republic of Benin, falsely arrested in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivorie.

The Embassy of Cote d'Ivoire, a Citizen of the Republic of Benin has been falsely arrested in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire at the instigation of criminals masquerading as management of EcobankBJ, Cotonou, Benin.

The Embassy of Benin, a Citizen of the Republic of Benin has been falsely arrested in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire at the instigation of criminals masquerading as management of EcobankBJ, Cotonou, Benin. This email is also to substitute for a required personal appearance fraudulently ordered by one Laurent Akapbio, one without authority to so order.

The US Consulate in Benin as the Beninese Citizen falsely arrested in Cote d'Ivoire is the Legal Power of Attorney of a US Citizen, criminally harassed by individuals masquerading as management members of EcobankBJ, Cotonou, Benin.

The International Monetary Fund, actions of criminals masquerading as respected bankers undermines confidence in the monetary structure of the Republic of Benin.

Other email addresses are to management members of Ecobank, both respected members and non respected criminals.

I request that this email be forwarded to the Fraud Investigation part of the Ivorian Police. This email details the actions of a gang of criminals masquerading as management of EcobankBJ. Their actions have caused the Ivorian Police to falsely arrest an honest Citizen of the Republic of Benin, about his lawful business. I request the duped Ivorian Police to take legal action to bring justice to the criminal gang.

In the interests of brevity, the incidents described herein are abbreviated.

Statement of Facts and Proofs

The chain of incidents started (more than six months ago) with the theft of a $250, 000 irrevocable draft (accompanied by certificate stating the funds were a real estate loan, legally acquired within the Republic of Benin), payable to Larry D. Haight, a US citizen. An irrevocable draft is payable on demand, without let or hindrance.

My Legal Power of Attorney, so designated by the High Court of the Republic of Benin, made personal appearance at EcobankBJ to collect payment of the $250, 000 draft.

Laurent Akapbio, in conspiracy with other Ecobank management, refused to pay the cashed draft to my Legal Power of Attorney, present as a legal substitute for my physical presence.

When Akapbio refused payment is the moment of the theft.

There is no other interpretation at law.

That was the moment of the initial crime.

Every subsequent action by Akapbio and management, prior to payment of the draft, was illegal and extortionate.

There is no other interpretation at law.

Akapbio and management of EcobankBJ have not paid, remaining criminals.

Akapbio stated that an International Transfer Permit be furnished Ecobank, then that the $250, 000 could be wire transferred into my bank account.

My Legal Power of Attorney paid $1000 to the Republic of Benin Ministry of Finance for such permit. I was subject to intense scrutiny of all my financial dealings, both national and international, prior to issuance of the permit. The permit was issued, proof that I had not participated in any illicit actions.

Akapbio is familiar with the certificate furnished (at a cost of $1250) that the $250, 000 draft, as a real estate loan, was funds legally obtained within the Republic of Benin.

These documents, furnished to EcobankBJ, establish that my funds were legally obtained within the Republic of Benin and that my financial dealings were found to be legal.

Issues subsequently raised by the Akapbio gang have no relationship to the fact that an irrevocable draft drawn upon EcobankBJ is payable on demand. The fact that the irrevocable draft was drawn upon EcobankBJ rather than having my loan funds wire transferred from Atlantic Bank and the subsequent lies and charges of Akapbio strongly indicate that Akapbio was a co-conspirator with an agent alleged to have defrauded Atlantic Bank.

Akapbio and management have continuously denied due diligence, never quoting a provision of law that allows their criminal theft. An attempt to contact other EcobankBJ management resulted in my email address being barred. Refusal to supply a legal reference and refusal to supply access to supervisory personnel was to perpetuate fraud.

A single response from a management member was that Akapbio did not represent EcobankBJ and was not on staff.

Akapbio stated that an attempt to hack EcobankBJ security had occured, that it was believed to be by myself or at my instigation. Akapbio used such statement as justification for non payment.

Akapbio later indicated that EcobankBJ determined that security had not been hacked by myself, but still refused payment.

Akapbio and management told my Legal Power of Attorney they would not recognize his presence. This was an illegal denial of my Legal Power of Attorney, one who, by law, was my identical physical substitute, required to be paid upon demand.

Several instances, when if certain conditions to be met by myself or my Legal Power of Attorney were met, we were promised payment. Every time we met those conditions, a manufactured reason was presented that Akapbio and management relied upon to refuse payment. Each of these times, the crimes of Akapbio and management were ratified by them. Each of these times, payment could have been made to my Legal Power of Attorney, but was criminally denied.

I was in receipt of several emails which I forwarded to Akapbio. One indicated that if I would forfeit collection, that I would be paid $50, 000.

One indicated that the sender was an African, understood African mentality and could bribe both the Courts and Officials of the Bank. This, I also forwarded to Akapbio.

One indicated that if I would not attempt to claim my money, that it would be taken and that I would be paid $20, 000 to cover my costs and to "grease the elbow." This was forwarded to Akapbio.

I received emails bearing my own email address (indicating that I had sent emails that I had not) and my own signature block. These were forwarded to Akapbio. Akapbio forwarded emails to me purporting to have come from me that were fraudulent and that he had recognized as fraudulent. I believe these emails came from Akapbio or his co-conspirators.

Akapbio emailed me that Philippe Denba, personally appeared at EcobankBJ, to him, to make claim that my loan be rescinded. Akapbio emailed description of part of this appearance to to me. Akapbio stated that Denba indicated that his principle wanted to foreclose the loan. The reference was to a loan, not to a theft. Akapbio stated in one of his emails that he was unable to contact the principle recited by Denba. Akapbio knew that Denba had lied.

These statements prove a lack of conspiracy, which would have been impossible, in the commission of a crime.

Some days later, Akapbio indicated that judgment against me had been entered by the High Court of Benin and that EcobankBJ was not to pay me at all. The email statement that Court and Bank Officials could be bribed was borne out. Akapbio refused to produce a copy of such judgment.

The purported judgment was void at entry as there was never service on either myself or my Legal Power of Attorney, nor have I or my Legal Power of Attorney been furnished copies of any such documents, assuming they existed.

Akapbio indicated that EcobankBJ would pay me the $250, 000 if I paid $3250, a one month payment on the loan which was now due, although my money had not been paid to me through the criminal actions of the Akapbio gang. My legal Power of Attorney tendered the $3250 payment. Akapbio in conspiracy with management refused payment of my $250, 000, stating that the security of my bank account had been compromised, that if payment were to be made, it might be hijacked, as statement that the gang could not be trusted to wire the money. Akapbio still refused payment to my Legal Power of Attorney.

Collection of the $3250 payment by Akapbio is recognition of the confirmed presence of a loan. A loan, confirmed by Atlantic Bank, cannot legally be a theft. It is not possible.

Akapbio refused to tender a receipt for the $3250 payment or to tender proof that the $3250 was paid to Atlantic Bank.

Akapbio stated that due to delays in securing payment, a .5% excise tax ($1250) was now due. I would be paid as soon as I paid the tax. My Legal Power of Attorney tendered the $1250 and demanded payment of the cashed irrevocable draft. Akapbio and management denied payment stating that my Chase Bank accounts might not be secure. The bank personnel might hijack my funds in transit.

I have furnished six different bank accounts into which wire transfers could have been made. Payment has always been criminally refused.

Finally, all frauds of Akapbio and management having been countered, Akapbio stated that if my Legal Power of Attorney would open a multi-currency account, at a cost of substantial documentation and an opening deposit of $1000, that the $250, 000 less $3250 for an additional loan payment, would be paid into that account.

My Legal Power of Attorney gathered all of the supporting documents, took these with the required opening deposit of $1000 to Ecobank-IC and was arrested on the spot.

My Legal Power of Attorney was told this was at the instigation of EcobankBJ.

Akapbio and his gang had at all times for the previous six months been guilty of fraud and theft. The arrest is a criminal action, carried out by the Ivorian Police, duped by EcobankBJ criminal management.

This false imprisonment of an honest and respected Beninese Citizen, not in his home country at the time, is the reason for the appeal to human rights commissions.

My Legal Power of Attorney, totally guiltless, has been severely damaged and is still falsely imprisoned at the request of criminals masquerading as bankers.

Following is a copy of my Legal Power of Attorney's last email to me, sent from a Cote d'Ivoire jail.
Good Morning, Mr. Larry Haight,

In God We Trust!

It’s me Samson Emeto. I am writing you from the computer of the Ivorian Police. I do not have time to go through your 4 emails you had sent.

I was picked up by the fraud units of the Ivorian Police yesterday at the premises of Ecobank CI. I was told the order was from the managements of Ecobank BJ. I am so confiused because i do nto know why this happen and why me.

I never knew such a thing will occur, I never knew Ecobank wanted me arrested, i suspect the factors leading to this occurred recently because the last time( Monday this week )i spoke with Mr. Akapbio the information desk officer, he sounded normal as usual. I discovered from the police station during interrogations that Philippe Demba is behind this, he is also in Police net in Benin, he made confessional statements to the Beninese Police that he tried stealing the Money of a dead customer from Bank Atlantic where he worked before, which he was the account officer without informing his relatives in Poland about the deposit, because the depositor made the deposit secret.

Philippe further confess that you (Larry Haight) are his partner and one Indian man, then Ecobank BJ as for my arrest too, that i am been suspected as a co partner to the crime, that I have been parading myself as your associate. The Indian Man is currently been traced by the Interpol. I do not know what is up with you. The relatives of the dead depositr have been contacted. Which means your loan fund will go to them if this case is proved. I am been asked what i know about this and how i get to know you and who you are. I have made statements of all everything that happened right from the Beninese Customs till date. I am still under detention till an investigation is completed. I am so confused and devastated, Mr Larry, you must tell me your own side of the story and the gospel truth. I must not go to jail or stay longer in detention; I have a course to pursue and a Family to take care of.

These are what transpired yesterday, the account was not opened, rather i was picked up by police instead, the whole documents to the account opening and the $ 1, 000 balance is with the police as exhibits. I am so confused and devastated, please you may call the me on here+[protected] or the fraud units of the Ivorian Police on +[protected] . I may not have easy access to email, but i am with my cell phone here. Finally i know how you feel, just calm down.

Samson
I received the following absurd email from Akapbio:

Attn. Mr.Larry Haight,

You are required to submit yourself to the Embassy of the republic of Benin in USA ( 124 Kalorama Road, N.W.Washington, D.C) with your American Passport on or before the next one (1) week. You owe them explanation on our behalf, while intense investigations with the Beninese Police and the Ivorian Police are concluded.

This is urgent information to you. No further communications from you to us is required for now.

Thank you.


Yours Faithfully,

...
Mr. Laurent Akpabio

Information Desk Officer

Statements of Response about the Samson Emeto and the Akapbio emails:

1) Sampson Emeto quote: "I was picked up by the fraud units of the Ivorian Police yesterday at the premises of Ecobank CI. I was told the order was from the managements of Ecobank BJ."

Proof that Akapbio and management were the causative agents.

2) Samson Emeto quote: "I am so confiused because I don't know why this happen and why me."

Proof of innocence.

3) Samson Emeto quote: "I never knew such a thing will occur, I never knew Ecobank wanted me arrested, i suspect the factors leading to this occurred recently because the last time (Monday this week ) i spoke with Mr. Akapbio the information desk officer, he sounded normal as usual."

Proof that Samson Emeto trusted Akapbio and gang.

4) Samson Emeto quote: "I discovered from the police station during interrogations that Philippe Demba is behind this, he is also in Police net in Benin, he made confessional statements to the Beninese Police that he tried stealing the Money of a dead customer from Bank Atlantic where he worked before, which he was the account officer without informing his relatives in Poland about the deposit, because the depositor made the deposit secret."

No relevance to either my Legal Power of Attorney or myself.

The $250, 000 irrevocable draft drawn on EcobankBJ, payable to Larry D. Haight, was accompanied by certification that the draft was a real estate loan and represented legally obtained funds within the Republic of Benin. This was subsequently investigated by the Republic of Benin Ministry of Finance prior to issuance of an International Transfer Permit.

5) Samson Emeto quote: "Philippe further confess that you (Larry Haight) are his partner and one Indian man, then Ecobank BJ as for my arrest too, that i am been suspected as a co partner to the crime, that I have been parading myself as your associate. The Indian Man is currently been traced by the Interpol."

No relevance to either my Legal Power of Attorney or myself. I have never met Philippe. At all relevant times, I have a distance of some 9000 miles from the action. Assisting in such crime is simply not possible.

Akapbio confirmed that Atlantic Bank has computer record of a $250, 000 loan to myself. Akapbio collected a $3250 re-payment from me that was due on the loan. He stated that he would collect an additional payment due with the next payment (of my $250, 000) to My Legal Power of Attorney. A certificate furnished with the $250, 000 irrevocable draft drawn upon EcobankBJ specifically states that it was a real estate loan and legally acquired within the Republic of Benin. This was confirmed by the Beninese Ministry of Finance, after intense investigation, issuing an International Transfer of Funds Permit.

At all times, Akapbio knew that I am not a partner to the theft of $250, 000 from Atlantic Bank. A real estate loan is not stolen money. A loan and a theft of the same money are mutually exclusive. Akapbio knows that I committed no crime, proof that Akapbio lied to the Ivorian Police force to have an honest man arrested.

No crime has been committed by myself. My Legal Power of Attorney cannot be a co partner to a crime. My Legal Power of Attorney was confirmed by the High Court of the Republic of Benin. The action "that I have been parading myself as your associate." is a perfectly legal and proper action.

6) Samson Emeto quote: "I do not know what is up with you. The relatives of the dead depositor have been contacted. Which means your loan fund will go to them if this case is proved."

My loan fund may not be given to a relative of a dead depositor of Atlantic Bank. EcobankBJ owes me payment of $250, 000, proceeds of an irrevocable draft drawn upon EcobankBJ. I negotiated for and obtained a loan. Atlantic Bank states the loan is documented on their computer. I have made a payment on such loan through EcobankBJ.

Atlantic Bank may owe payment to the relatives of a dead depositor, but that has no connection with my irrevocable draft. I am unaware of the details of such, if they exist.

7) Samson Emeto quote: "I am been asked what i know about this and how i get to know you and who you are. I have made statements of all everything that happened right from the Beninese Customs till date. I am still under detention till an investigation is completed. I am so confused and devastated, Mr Larry, you must tell me your own side of the story and the gospel truth."

I have instructed my Legal Power of Attorney to make available to any and everyone every email and conversation that has ever taken place between him and myself.

8) Samson Emeto quote: "I must not go to jail or stay longer in detention; I have a course to pursue and a Family to take care of."

Proof of damages to my Legal Power of Attorney.

9) Samson Emeto quote: "These are what transpired yesterday, the account was not opened, rather i was picked up by police instead, the whole documents to the account opening and the $1, 000 balance is with the police as exhibits. I am so confused and devastated, please you may call the me on here+[protected] or the fraud units of the Ivorian Police on +[protected]."

Please make this document available to the Fraud Section of the Ivorian Police by calling +[protected]. I cannot access that number from here. My sworn statements are in effect a sworn deposition to the Ivorian Police as well as to any other investigative agency.

10) Samson Emeto quote: "I may not have easy access to email, but i am with my cell phone here. Finally I know how you feel, just calm down."

My Legal Power of Attorney now understands that his trust in Akapbio and his gang was misplaced.

11) (Akapbio) "You are required to submit yourself to the Embassy of the republic of Benin in USA ( 124 Kalorama Road, N.W.Washington, D.C) with your American Passport on or before the next one (1) week. You owe them explanation on our behalf."

This directive is as illegal as any of Akapbio's directives. Akapbio does not have legal authority to so order. Akapbio made no mention of required payment of my transportation, per diem, hotel expenses and payment for lost income. This would be a three thousand mile round trip for me. Age (born 1941) and ill health prevent my driving.

I cannot owe an expla1nation on the behalf of Akapbio and his gang. I proved their criminal actions. No explaination is possible.

Proofs

These statements prove that:

1) Akapbio and gang stole the sum of $250, 000 from Larry D. Haight some six months ago.

2) Akapbio and gang have continuously committed fraudulent and extortionary acts from that time forward.

3) Akapbio and gang have been fully informed of the law and have knowingly persisted in fraudulent and extortionary acts.

4) Akapbio and gang have been aware that Larry D. Haight did not commit any criminal acts and that it was impossible for my Legal Power of Attorney to have been a co-comspirator.

5) Akapbio and gang have lied to the Ivorian Police to cause the criminal arrest of an honest Citizen of the Republic of Benin.

6) Akapbio and gang persist with fraudulent threats and criminal intimidation to prevent their criminal actions from exposure.

On February 14, 2011, Akapbio sent two messages containing what he believed to be evidential emails sent by me.

and

and

" I have no objection to any legitimate business. I look forward to hearing how to carry out your proposed dealings. When I click the link you provided, I get a response that the message is no longer available."

are not evidential of fraudulent intent or execution of any fraudulent action.

Akapbio neglected to forward a copy of the email where I rejected Mr. Denba's proposition.

The is no evidence of my participating in any criminal action, because it simply did not happen.

Such proof can be constructed by the Akapbio criminal gang.

This is the so-called evidence used by the Akapbio gang to have an honest man arrested.

Remedies Sought:

1) Immediately release and restore Samson Emeto to his rightful station.

2) Expunge from the record indication of his arrest.

3) Impose sanctions of $5, 000 per day (payable to Samson Emeto) against EcobankBJ for each and every day of the criminal incarceration of Samson Emeto.

4) Ecobank to immediately pay the $250, 000 owed to Larry D. Haight.

5) Ecobank to pay Larry D. Haight, as sanctions, the sum of 1% of the $250, 000 per day for each and every day that his lawful money has been withheld from him.

6) That my email address be furnished to any and all legally authorized investigative bodies.

7) Specifically that this email be furnished to the Ivorian Police.

These are my statements, available to anyone, to lighten the dark recesses of EcobankBJ to public view.

As proof of my writing this instrument, I attach a copy of my passport.

Thank you,

Larry D. Haight
