Scoop: Here's how The SISMI was to kidnap Carlos Remigio Cardoen.

News is source from the portal of Indymedia to the link:


Other sensational revelations come to light correspondence from the super-confidential as on the SISMI's agent Altana Pietro was arrested in 2004 by the magistrate Anna Canepa.

In Italy the Nicolò Pollari SISMI's (Italian Military Secret Service) was to kidnap the largest international arms dealer: Carlos Remigio Cardoen Cornejo. Once abducted (pardon 'arrested' … after Abu Omar is not elegant to use some jargon) the arms dealer more dangerous in the world he would have been used as barter with the U.S.A.

Carlos Remigio Cardoen Cornejo is one of “most wanted fuggitive” and international research by the American CIA and FBI for selling disgusting weapons to countries around the world (the weapons are all crap but deadly “cluster bomb”better known as cluster bombs are even more). But the thing that was most angry George Bush Jr was that Cardoen is the trusted provider of Baghdad's rais Saddam Hussein.

We come to our country. What is the role of Italy?

In 2002 the Chilean arms dealer would have to come to Italy. A very secret meeting to be held near Portofino: for precision in the village of San Michele di Pagana, lovely lakeside town close to Paraggi in the beautiful setting of the Gulf of Tigullio. In this enchanting place stands the luxurious summer residence of a prominent lawyer business law firm in Genoa. In Genoa's Court file name of the mysterious lawyer was properly shielded with an "omitted" (so we are able to reveal the name).

The military secret service agent (SISMI) Altana Pietro comes to know of the secret meeting.

Altana Pietro is (as we have seen in the previous installments on Indymedia) is one of the men under Nicolò Pollari General (former Director of Military Intelligence). He is employed as an infiltrator in Genoa in social centers, for spying the Iranians of Irasco (which is currently under a rogatory USA) and to investigate many companies of high finance and important lawyers business (this explains the interest of military intelligence for a certain type of "business lawyer").

As mentioned, near Portofino was to be this summit between: Carlos Remigio Cardoen, his man of confidence in Italy Augusto Giangrandi - person known to the CIA is already arrested and deported from the U.S. for arms trafficking - mysterious lawyer business, and an Italian industrial Mr. Ing. Sergio Pucciarini.

Who is Sergio Pucciarini? It 'a former official of “Decima MAS” (the famous raiders of the special unit of the Royal Italian Navy then merged in Comsubin). The Ing. Pucciarini is CEO and owner of COSMOS Spa of Livorno. Tuscany industry specializing in Submarines manufacturing. For the precision Cosmos has a niche business that interest a lot to Saddam Hussein, and has developed a excellence technologyc know how that allows them to build a prototype of "Minisubmarine" can easily be adapted for use in war. Suitably armed the Minisubmarine can become another deadly weapon (best of “cluster bomb”).

The “Midget submarine MG110LR, SX756/S e SX908/PA” - these are the initials of minisubmarine - becomes the new object of desire of the Rais. Saddam Hussein for some time dreaming of being able to get their hands on these Italians jewels. Would very handy in the war against Iran (in the Persian Gulf Saddam has nothing to tackle the strategic naval forces of the Ayatollah).

Besides Saddam's military advisers familiar with the Cosmos Midget Minisubmarine because they've already seen in action in some drills in Pakistan (Pakistan Navy has also purchased some from Pucciarini). Who better than Cardoen could be used to satisfy the desires of the spicotic Iraqi dictator? Carlos Cardoen, from his office in Santiago, Chile organizes everything.

Together Giangrandi study the Cosmos business and all possible triangulations. In fact export minisubmarines is virtually impossible. The embargo on Iraq is very close (although craps made during the period of "Oil for Food" show the contrary) also transport in pieces is very problematic. Giangrandi has a brilliant idea. Why having to buy every single minisubmarine unit + spare parts + warehouse, and everything else and not directly buy the whole company? It 'a genial idea! On this basis takes off on the deal. In the game there are a lot of money. Many, many money. And almost all in “black”. Black as oil. The dictator does not mind spending. To have the Cosmos company makes available to Cardoen digits to six zeros (in $). The Iraqi crude-oil traded circumventing the UN sanctions with the S.O.M.O. (oil company of Saddam who used the ploy of the great "Oil for Food" to bypass the U.S. Embargo) produces stratospheric profits. At that time many weds businessman become millionaires overnight. Barter Agreements are concluded underhand own with all (remains haunted by Saddam's business also son of UN Secretary Kofy Annan). The off-shore accounts of Saddam overflow of cash that they literally did not see a chance to be spent. The Ing. Pucciarini instead has the water to the throat and has a tremendous need of money. For a (beautiful) handful of billions combines the deal and the Cosmos changing hands. Something less than $ 100 million at the time.

So Cosmos becomes the property of the Tecnologie Marine Italiana and Italtech (a company owned by Giangrandi with silent partner Cardoen) with Augusto Giangrandi as Sole Administrator (to appear Cardoen buyer Cosmos would be in bad taste).

But in the closing of the transaction - during the act of merger of Cosmos in the Tecnologie Marine Italiana - Giangrandi wants overdo, and does come out even companies linked directly to Carlos Cardoen as Cardoen International CIMSA (Rue des Alps, 7 Ginevra - Svizzera), Industrias Cardoen LTDA (Los Conquistadores, 1700, Piso 28 - Santiago del Cile) Inkel Company NV, Swisstech and Swissco (all occurring as guarantor).

Cosmos is paid a 50% cash and a 50% 'black' to get around the tax and (for obvious reasons) so as not to amounts which - both buyers and seller of Cosmos - do not want to appear. For peace of Pucciarini Cardoen and Giangrandi the sign and an informal "bank guarantee" of $ 34 million (two signatures on white paper headline that anyone could write).

At this point refined intrigue. The "cat and the fox" of the duo Giangrandi / Cardoen have a stroke of genius. Cosmos is already in their hands and have only paid half in cash (plus or minus) of the value of the holding of submarines. Officially, the company has already been paid and there are still a lot of money to be paid the balance. If you do not give anything to Pucciarini the "cat and the fox" you can put in your pocket almost $ 40 million.

And so it happens. Pucciarini no longer receives money from the other "black fund" gets very upset and threatened action heavy. First try with good manners (Cosmos ago notify an injunction). He wants his money. But nothing happens. Then back to the famous l business awyer who organized to purpose an arbitration, summoning to court the "cat and the fox" (There is nothing better than an arbitration to handle uncomfortable stories away from prying eyes). But Cardoen and Pucciarini are far from it. They are in Santiago of Chile to enjoy the Pucciarini's millions of dollars.

Carlos Remigio Cardoen but be very careful never to set foot in Italy. Maybe he smelled a trap. Maybe more who knows. What really happened is not possible to know. Only the 007 agent Altana Pietro, the Court of Genoa (and the Military Intelligence Service) know about this ongoing story. What is certain is that the 007 intelligent team of Nicolò Pollari there was very bad. Were not able to get a another chance to capture Cardoen. By the Court of Genoa the confidential Dossier signed "Peter Altana / SISMI" in the meantime has also mysteriously disappeared (maybe just changed cabinet after Indymedia's raids... but which one? Boh).

Nicolo Pollari and Marco Mancini with a bitter taste in mouth then console themselves with the Imam Abu Omar (meanwhile have the impunity guaranteed by the state).

Carlo Remigio Cardoen instead, although still one of the most wanted men on the planet (his picture is among the first signs of "most wanted fugitive" by the CIA and FBI) is still there in Chile, near the capital, who enjoys life at large. Undisturbed as ever. He and his business (first with Pinochet now with the current government). Cardoen continues to be the merchant of death, and manages several hotels (have some resorts). In his free time does the grower, and produces in its Fazenda near Santiago an excellent wine very valuable and appreciated. Very refined and wanted (over him).

The important sommelier they say it's very similar to the fine Italian wine Chianti in Tuscany. Perhaps it is the only honest know how that is successful in export from Italy.
