Fraudster Madoff is dying, wants out of prison: Lawyer

first_imgThe Post said the Bureau of Prisons rejected Madoff’s petition for compassionate release in December, with a lawyer for the federal agency saying “in light of the nature and circumstances of his offense, his release at this time would minimize the severity of his offense.”Madoff is appealing that ruling under the terms of a criminal justice reform law passed in 2018.A pyramid, or Ponzi, scheme is a form of fraud in which returns on investments are generated only by bringing in fresh investments from new victims. Cash from new clients is used to pay existing clients until the scheme eventually collapses.Madoff’s fraud was revealed during the financial crisis in 2008 when he was unable to satisfy growing client demands to withdraw their investments, and many lost their savings or were unable to retire.US authorities have seized about $4 billion related to Madoff and aim to return it to tens of thousands of his victims around the world.”I never got a break, why should he get a break? He’s terminally ill? I’m terminally broke,” Gregg Felsen, a 72-year-old who came out of retirement to work as a photographer after his savings were wiped out in the scam and has not received restitution, told the Post.Topics : “The Bureau of Prisons concluded in September 2019 that Madoff has less than 18 months to live because of the terminal nature of his kidney failure,” Sample wrote.The Washington Post reported that Madoff needs a wheelchair and 24-hour care, and is asking for compassionate release so he can mend fences with his grandchildren and die at home.”I’ve served 11 years already, and, quite frankly, I’ve suffered through it,” Madoff told the paper in an interview.”You know, there hasn’t been a day in prison that I haven’t felt the guilt for the pain I caused on the victims and for my family,” he said. Bernie Madoff, jailed in the United States for perpetrating the world’s largest fraud, is terminally ill and wants to leave prison to die, his attorney said Wednesday.Madoff is serving a 150-year prison sentence after being convicted in 2009 of orchestrating a Ponzi scheme that saw investors bilked out of an estimated $65 billion.In a letter to a US federal judge, attorney Brandon Sample petitioned for his early release, saying Madoff suffers from “terminal kidney disease, among other serious medical conditions.”last_img read more

Spain moves to extend state of emergency as virus deaths soar

first_imgField hospital To ease pressure on hospitals in the Madrid region, soldiers helped move patients over the weekend to a makeshift field hospital set up at a conference center in the Spanish capital.The facility will be fitted with 5,500 hospital beds, which would make it the biggest such coronavirus field hospital in Europe.About 1,300 hospitals beds have so far been set up at the facility and officials plan to move over 300 patients there this weekend, the director of the field hospital, Antonio Zapatero, said in an interview with daily newspaper El Mundo.A photo taken before the first patients arrived showed rows of empty beds covered in white sheets laid out on the concrete floor of the conference center.The Spanish government said Saturday it would distribute another 500,000 masks to healthcare workers, and 800,000 for patients. It also said it had also bought more than 640,000 coronavirus tests.Authorities have called up 52,000 extra workers to help the country’s health service as it struggles to contain the virus, including 14,000 retired doctors and nurses.Around 2,850 soldiers have been mobilized to disinfect airports and ports and other tasks in the fight against the virus. “I know it is a drastic measure…but experts agree that it is an effective measure in the fight against coronavirus,” he told a news conference after holding talks via video conference with the heads of Spain’s regional governments.”We hope that with this measure, which is so drastic, so dramatic, so hard, which without a doubt has consequences on our families, we can bend the [growth] curb of coronavirus.”The announcement comes after Spain reported 394 new deaths caused by the pandemic, raising to 1,720 the official death toll in Europe’s worst-hit country after Italy, a 30 percent increase over the previous day.The number of confirmed cases of the disease rose by 3,646, or 14.6 percent, to 28,572, with Sanchez warning the outbreak would continue to expand in the coming days. ‘Significant problem’The rise in infections is bringing Spain’s health care system to the brink of collapse, especially in the regions of Madrid and Barcelona which account of half of all infections of COVID-19.”There will be stress and a problem in some places. The pressure on the system will be high,” the health ministry’s emergencies coordinator, Fernando Simon, said.”This collapse which is being talked about could happen in some places but it will not be generalized.”Health care workers have for days complained that they are running short of equipment, such as masks.The pandemic claimed the first life of a health care worker in Spain last week, that of a 52-year-old nurse in the northern Basque Country.Doctors, nurses and other health care workers accounted for over 10 percent of all confirmed cases of coronavirus, Simon said.”This is a significant problem for our health care system,” he told a news conference. “We have yet to receive the impact of the strongest, most damaging wave, which will test our material and moral capacities to the limit, as well as our spirit as a society,” he said during a televised address late on Saturday.center_img Spain’s prime minister said Sunday he would ask parliament to extend a state of emergency until April 11 to try to curb the spread of coronavirus after the country recorded 394 new deaths from the disease.A nationwide 15-day state of emergency was first announced on March 14 and it bars people in the nation of around 46 million people from leaving home except for essential outings like buying food or seeking medical care.Sanchez said his cabinet would on Tuesday approve the request to extend the state of emergency for another 15 days, adding he was confident that the assembly would approve it.
