Roman Ziemian, the co-founder of FutureNet, has been detained in Italy.
Italian officials hauled Ziemian off the podium, trophy in hand and still wearing his racing uniform, to arrest him on a South Korean warrant.
Ziemian and Stephan Morgenstern are co-founders of the Ponzi scam FutureNet.
FutureNet, which debuted in 2014 as a basic matrix cycler, joined the MLM crypto scam bandwagon in 2017.
In 2018, FuturoCoin was introduced and failed. It was restarted in 2019, but nothing came of it.
BehindMLM reported earlier this year that both Ziemian and Morgenstern had departed Poland for Dubai.
There Morgenstern had a fancy automobile garage. Ziemian was living out his midlife crisis dream of being a Ferrari race car driver.
As reported by SoyMotor on the 31st of October;
After the first of the Ferrari Challenge races, the Italian Guardia di Finanza detained Polish race winner Roman Ziemian at the base of the podium, still holding the trophy, and transported him to a detention cell while still wearing his racing costume.
South Korea has issued an international search and arrest warrant for Ziemian.
He is charged with aggravated fraud, money laundering, and high-tech criminal association by a court in Seoul.
FutureNet is a “high-tech criminal organization.” In 2020, South Korean authorities began investigating FutureNet in response to a complaint from 950 FutureNet investors alleging damages of 16 million EUR.
This inquiry led to the arrest of Ziemian in Italy. The arrest warrant for Ziemian was issued on October 23. It is suspected that he was apprehended on October 30.
Unconfirmed reports indicate that Ziemian is now being incarcerated at the Rocco D’Amato jail in Bologna.
At some time, South Korean authorities have or will likely request Ziemian’s extradition.
Ziemian will be charged with aggravated fraud and money laundering by the South Korean Supreme Court upon extradition.
If South Korean officials pursued Ziemian, they probably also issued an arrest order for Morgenstern.
BehindMLM was informed that Morgenstern had been caught in Greece, but I am unable to confirm this.
