III. Alvin Al “Malnik”
"Interfor has investigated the background of Al Malnik (“Malnik”). Some sources in the financial industry think highly of Malnik. However, other sources suggest that he has built his empire on the backs of his clients to a point where there are rumors of irregularities involved in the accounting of offshore accounts." Additionally, Interfor’s investigation found a tight business relationship between Malnik and Tommy Mottola, primarily in regard to the affairs of Jackson. Interfor has begun investigating the flow of funds from Jackson through Mottola and Malnik into offshore accounts in the Caribbean. Interfor believes that, at this stage of the investigation, if we had additional time and a proper budget we could develop intelligence which would uncover a scheme to defraud Jackson and his empire by Mottola and Malnik by diverting funds offshore. Interfor interviewed former employees of Ziffren Brittenham Branca and Fischer for intelligence on John Branca. A former paralegal said Branca is very quiet, intelligent, shy but lovely with a funny sense of humor. Another former employee described Branca as brilliant and said he acts less like a legal mind than as a comrade trying to get musicians’ careers in order. He noted that Branca’s brother is a musician. Through very sensitive and confidential sources, we have learned that Branca sent a letter to the Justice Department describing his relationship with Jackson and the services he provided to Jackson throughout the years and indicating that his services were recently reinstated. Furthermore, Branca stated that Jackson no longer required the services of Alvin Malnik (“Malnik”) and suggested that the authorities will want to review Malnik’s background. Furthermore, Branca suggested that Malnik’s goal in this relationship was to utilize Jackson’s financial resources and cash business to have facilitated Malnik’s comprehensive money laundering scheme activities.

IV. Additional Findings

“According to a 2005 Vanity Fair article, he believed Malnik along with music mogul Tommy Mottola and film director Brett Ratner were out to swindle him of his stake in the Beatles collection, which was worth more than a half-billion dollars. Malnik disputed these allegations, saying he was nothing more than a father figure to Jackson. Muckraker Bob Norman of the Broward-Palm Beach New Times is dubious: “Malnik, in his business dealings, has never been known for helping anyone without expecting more in return. He learned from Lansky, after all, and was dubbed the mobster's "heir apparent" by Reader's Digest when Lansky died in 1983. He was banned from Atlantic City casinos by the New Jersey Gaming Commission after it was determined he was associated with criminals, including Lansky and mobster Sam Cohen.” “Norman is appalled that the reporters who recently interviewed Malnik have not mentioned his mob ties in their articles.”
