Hello, I am contacting you via your email address to keep our discussions private. I am MUDA, the son of JEFRI BOLKIAH who was the former Finance Minister along side chairman of the Brunei Investment Agency (BIA). Before i proceed, I would like you to view the websites below for a better understanding of what am about to explain to you:- As you may know from the international media above, the Sultan had falsely accused my father of financial mismanagement and impropriety of US$14.8 Billion. The huge loss was as a result of the Asian financial crisis which made government owned Brunei Investment Agency (BIA) to be declared bankrupt under my fathers tenure in office. As a fallout, my father was relieved of his post as Finance Minister of Brunei and was also stripped of his chairmanship post as head of the nation's international investment arm, the Brunei Investment Agency (BIA) which controls 13 companies & Brunei's overseas assets. My father upon receiving the news in United Kingdom flew back to brunie in other to settle matters directly with SHEIK HAJI HASSANAL BOLKIAH. My father met with officials of the Brunei Investment Agency (BIA) and visit the sultan. After series of meetings relations deteriorate quickly. However, my father was arrested, all our Bank Accounts and private properties including a crude oil export refinery & three large oil wells and other business interest which were later confiscated by the sultanate and trading by Amedeo Development Corporation (ADC) owned by my father was barred. During this unfortunate period i was to evacuate my immediate family outside the sultanate to London United Kingdom in other to avoid further prosecution from the sultan and his security operatives but before I could do just that I was placed under house arrest inline with a court order. Before my arrest, I had dispatched money US$340 Million under special arrangement abroad for safe keeping but when the amount in Malaysia was discovered and seized. I now seek your permission to allow us do a CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP/REASSIGNMENT OF CREDIT of stated funds from the holding institution to your name, so that the funds would be released to you as the BENEFICIARY (on behalf of myself).
