    Have after. To what issue will this come?

    Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.

    Well, if he was hoping to get e short sentence based on this being a so-called white collar crime the attack on the business partner may have blown it big style.

    Of course, growing your figures via some dodgy book keeping is a bit of a pastime in the UK. Azlan anyone?

    *Where* is the company registered?

    The last I looked, "Polynesia" is not a state - it's a region comprised of several independent states. You might as well say a company is registered in "Europe", for all the information that gives you.

    It's registered in...

    Niue - no, I didn't recognize that either... :-)

    Polynesia is a bit more comprehensible, if not as exact.

    And now a fight will break out among the hacks to get to go there and "research", I bet. :-)

    No easy way out for him

    "Well, if he was hoping to get e short sentence based on this being a so-called white collar crime"

    A law professor has stated that he's looking at 6-7 years going by earlier cases. The assault could add perhaps 1 year to that (the partner didn't die - aggravated assault/attempted manslaughter at most) since sentences are served simultaneously in Denmark - it wouldn't matter all that much. He'd be out after 3 or 4 years anyway.

    Of course, then there'd be the slight matter of a miffed partner - maybe mr. Bagger will need his contacts in Hells Angels after all. ;-)

    The chairman did not file for Bankruptcy until Monday

    Corrected time line:

    Thursday: CEO Stein Bagger disappears, Chairman Asger Jensby and his henchmen begin raiding the offices looking for anything suspicious.

    Friday: Chairman still finds nothing suspicious in the offices

    Saturday: Chairman still finds nothing but hears that the CEO has recently rented an extra office in a hotel next door. The office key is lying openly in the CEO's official office.

    Sunday: Chairman searches the extra office and finds leasing contracts with fake chairman signatures and other revealing documents. Chairman estimates that at least half a billion kroner (about 85 million $) of past income is really debt to leasing financing banks.

    Monday: Chairman files for immediate complete bankruptcy (no bankruptcy protection phase first). Chairman holds press conference at 11:00 am detailing the above time line and findings. redirected to dummy "gone bankrupt" page.
