FBI Begins Probe into Money Laundary, Cameroon Embassy, UN Mission Implicated

 Courtesy cameroonjournal.com

In an investigation that may implicate the Cameroon Embassy in Washington DC, and most certainly the Cameroon Mission at the UN in New York, it is aired that the FBI is currently investigating some two bank accounts which until recently, were operated by the Cameroon Diplomatic Mission in New York city.
Our informant said the investigation may not be unconnected to the DC healthcare fraud that was recently uncovered by the FBI. If it is the case, the last may not have been heard yet about the ring of facilitators at the center of the fraud.
On February 24th, the FBI, shutdown two bank accounts used for money laundering in the city of NewYork.
The accounts belonged to the Cameroon UN Diplomatic Mission, and the kingpins behind them are allegedly Francois Ngoudene and Kinge Monono.
Both Ngoudene and Monono happen to be the Finance Comptrollers at the Cameroon Embassy in DC, and the Cameroon UN Mission in NY, respectively.
In a phone interview with an FBI official in NY, he will not deny nor confirm that bank accounts were closed and an investigation going on. “How did you hear about it?” The FBI official asked. Given the answer, we pressed on him as to whether some bank accounts belonging to the Cameroon Mission were shutdown.
He answered; “We’re not commenting on any case that is not yet in the public domain by means of a press release.” He said.  Did your office make such closings? The reporter asked. “I will not say yes or no.” He said.
The accounts were closed, we learned, as the FBI continues investigations into the whereabouts of the looted money that the fraudsters stole from the DC healthcare system. The accounts were being used for money laundering. We gathered equally that a Cameroon Embassy bank account in Washington DC was recently shutdown by the FBI in connection with questionable financial transactions.
Unconfirmed sources say the DC healthcare fraudsters were conniving with the diplomatic mission to use its immunity status to hide their loot. However, the investigating office of the healthcare fraud in DC, told the Cameroon Journal that they’re not aware of any connection between the events in NY with the arrests in DC. Andrew Ames, FBI agent, told the Journal that NY and DC offices carry out separate investigations and would not confirm if the developments in NY had anything to do with the arrests in DC.
It will be recalled that a few years ago in a report published by Ndongo Efemba Carlson, who was former chief of Embassy Security in DC, he implicated former ambassador, Jerome Mendouga, and it earned the ambassador a ten-year jail sentence in Cameroon. Ngoudene was mentioned in the report as a money-laundering  kingpin in the US. However, while the ambassador serves jail, nothing happened to Ngoudene because of his alleged connections in the presidency( for complete story go to : www.cameroonjournal.com )

In an investigation that may implicate the Cameroon Embassy in Washington DC, and most certainly the Cameroon Mission at the UN in New York, the Cameroon Journal has reliably gathered that the FBI is currently investigating some two bank accounts which until recently, were operated by the Cameroon Diplomatic Mission in New York city.

Our informant said the investigation may not be unconnected to the DC healthcare fraud that was recently uncovered by the FBI. If it is the case, the last may not have been heard yet about the ring of facilitators at the center of the fraud.

Ngoudene was mentioned in the report as a money-laundering  kingpin in the US. However, while the ambassador serves jail, nothing happened to Ngoudene because of his alleged connections in the presidency, particularly to the first lady, Chantal Biya.

Ngoudene is said to own three story buildings in Yaoounde in his wife’s name. His wife lives in the US and doesn’t work, and her sources of income for the buildings remain questionable. Ngoudene is also alleged to have once forgotten a $50,000 Rolex watch in a plane until a hostess had to come from behind to return it to him.

In  a related story, the CJ has also gathered, though unconfirmed, that some Cameroonians in the DC metro area who were not arrested but feel that they’re under investigation are escaping across the borders into Canada. 

This is coming under the hills of a bail refusal last Friday to Kinsley Banyi, indicted for defrauding the DC healthcare system through his employment agency with close to $500,000.00.

The bail hearing came up in the DC district court.  His bail was  set at $50,000,00.
The Journal gathered that his family, both in the US and abroad did raise the amount. However, a female family representative who was in court to bail him was turned down upon discovery of a criminal history in her background.

It was discovered that she had committed a felony after she gave her papers to somebody else to use for employment.
