Sunny Sheu: Murdered for Investigating NY Foreclosure Judge Joseph Golia?  naked capitalism

The details are thin but they sure don't smell right. The short form is that Sunny Sheu had his house stolen from him by fictive buyers who used forged documents. Judge Golia of Queens engaged in what appears to be highly questionable behavior in failing to reverse the sale. Sheu started investigating the judge, was told by policeman who specifically referred to information he had provided about Golia, and that if he didn't drop it, he'd wind up dead. Sheu disregarded their warning and did wind up dead. The authorities are also refusing to honor requests for information regarding Sheu's death made under New York's Freedom of Information Act. This story has been publicized by Foreclosure Fraud and The Daily Bail and I hope it gets more traction.

First, the background, as reported in Black Star News:

   Sheu's ordeal began over 10 years ago when a bank representative knocked on his door and said he was there to inspect the house for its new owner. The problem was that Sheu had never sold the house. It turns out that someone had forged critical documents and used them to illegally sell the property.

Why should anyone think that Bernie Madoff and Michael Milken are the only figures in US finance about whom allegations of links to organized crime have been made?

As the Dutch said while fighting the Spanish: "It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
