13-01-03 PRESS RELEASE: FATCA, Stanley Fischer - complaint asks release of $250,000 seized of "US Person" by Israeli Bank HaPoalim
The complaint asks the release of $250,000, unlawfully seized on January 1, 2013, from a "US Person" by the Israeli Bank HaPoalim, BM. The conduct has no foundation in either the law of the State of Israel, or the law of the United States, but appears to have been induced by Bank of Israel's Stanley Fischer unparalleled, unconditional submission to the United States FACTA. Petition, previously filed with the Israeli High Court of Justice claims that Fischer exchanged his loyalty to the State of Israel and its law with loyalty to another nation and its law, and/or loyalty to financial institutions and their interests. The case captures the financial crisis in a nutshell – criminality by financial institution is patronized by national banking regulators and the national highest courts. In this case – under the guise of compliance with United States law by Israeli banks. Eventually, the territory of "FACTA-compliance" is likely to coincide with the territory of the financial crisis, through corruption of banking regulation of other nations, under United States coercion.

Jerusalem, January 6 – complaint, filed with Bank of Israel-Banking regulation, documents the seizing on January 1, 2013, of some $250,000 of a "US Person's" funds, which were deposited with the Israeli Bank HaPoalim, BM. [1] The conduct of the Bank was purported by the Bank as part of its FATCA-related "New Policy". Under such "New Policy" the Bank demanded that the customer, a US citizen living in Israel, sign "Waiver of Privacy" to the United States government of his financial transactions in an Israeli bank in Israel. The customer refused to submit to the unlawful demands. In response, Bank HaPoalim now denies the customer's access to the customer's own deposit accounts, totaling some $250,000. The complaint also documents that: • Bank HaPoalim in fact has no "New Policy". The Bank refused to provide a copy of the policy record and stated that none existed. • Bank HaPoalim refuses to comply with pertinent United States Internal Revenue Regulations – reporting to the account holder the total interest gained in his account

on an annual basis (US IRS form 1099-Int) – conduct that is inconsistent with honest banking as well. Bank HaPoalim's conduct in seizing deposit accounts has no basis even in the purported US FATCA – the act provides only for withholding tax on income from US financial assets held at the Banks by non-compliant customers.

Today, staff of Bank of Israel confirmed receipt of the consumer's complaint, filed by Joseph Zernik, PhD, of Human Rights Alert (NGO). Whether the complaint would ever be registered, reviewed "according to legal standards", and whether a decision would ever be communicated to the complainant (as promised on the Bank of Israel web site for all complaints), remains questionable. In August 2012, a previous complaint was filed by Dr Zernik against Bank HaPoalim, which documented unlawful, extortionist demands and threats by the Bank, under the guise of FATCA compliance. [2] For months Bank of Israel refused to inform the complainant, whether the complaint was registered and reviewed. Most recently, from conversations with Bank HaPoalim, Dr Zernik discovered that the Bank had received a decision from Bank of Israel on Dr Zernik's August 2012 complaint, and that the Bank of Israel decision in part induced Bank HaPoalim's most recent unlawful actions. Bank of Israel persists in its refusal to disclose any details on the matter to the complainant. [3] In October 2012, petition was also filed with the Israeli Supreme Court to compel Mr Fischer to perform his duties by duly registering and reviewing the complaint against Bank HaPoalim. [4] The petition alleges that in permitting Israeli banks to act as they will under the pretense of enforcing the US FATCA, Stanley Fischer "undermines the rule of law" and "sovereignty of the State of Israel", and "substitutes his loyalty to the State of Israel and its laws with loyalty to another nation and its law, and/or with loyalty to financial institutions and their interests." [5] The petition in the Supreme Court of Israel was subjected to a fate that was remarkably similar to the fate of the complaint against Bank HaPoalim, BM, at Bank of IsraelBanking Regulation: The office of the clerk of the Supreme Court refused to duly register the petition. [6] The case of Bank HaPoalim is particularly striking, since in previous years Mr Fischer had removed some of the Bank's senior officers and initiated criminal investigations against them. Now Mr Fischer is patronizing criminal conduct by the same bank. The case of Mr Fischer is also striking, since review of Israeli media reports indicates that under his tenure, Bank of Israel was determined, even prior to the enactment of FATCA, that the matter was "not under its purview", and Bank of Israel refused to issue Banking Regulations of the State of Israel in this matter, even after being pressed to do so by Israeli banks. [7] The case captures the emergence of the basic conditions for a financial crisis in the State of Israel: Criminality by financial institutions is patronized by national banking regulators and the nation's highest courts. In this case – under the guise of compliance with United States law by Israeli banks.

Corruption of banking regulation in collusion with the US courts, under the color of law, has been increasingly recognized as central to the current socio-economic crisis in the United States. [8, and see quotes below] The State of Israel has not yet seen financial institutions' defaults of the size, seen in the US and Europe in recent years. Eventually, the territory of "FACTA-compliance" is likely to coincide with the territory of the financial crisis, through corruption of banking regulation of other nations, under United States coercion.
