Fox News has this remarkable expose of the ridiculous scam organization IIMSAM. It’s intellectually honest about the possible connections to US President Obama, which is saying something for a Fox News story. It also shows that this bizarre group issues travel documents that are fishy at best.

The writer left out one really odd tidbit that wouldn’t interest a general audience, but is sure to fascinate those of us following Latin America oil scams. As SG pointed out in comments in April, Miguel Lausell is an IIMSAM goodwill ambassador. Lausell, you might recall, was once a representative of the oil scam called Arevenca. He is one of the defendants being sued by Betterroads Asphalt in Puerto Rico for non-delivery of almost $8 million worth of petroleum products.

This link is also about Lausell and IIMSAM.

Mmmm spirulina. Delish.

    IIMSAM (http://iimsam.org/director2.php) and its ombudsman (http://iimsam.org/sgrole.php) who has a special role with the secretary general…………hmmm

    and wonderful- http://www.iraqdinares.com/archive/index.php/t-15120.html

    Accompanying Al-Fahim during his visit was Anthony Angiulli, ambassador-at-large & liaison to the U.S. government (Washington).
    Ambassador Angiulli is a member of Al-Fahim’s nongovernmental organization, Intergovernmental Institution for the use of Micro-Algae Spirulina Against Malnutrition (IIMSAM), dedicated to realize a world free of hunger and malnutrition. Also present was local attorney & global investor Miguel Lausell, who coordinated the visit. Lausell is a supporter of IIMSAM’s work in the region.

    But which university did Anthony Angiulli, ambassador-at-large & liaison to the U.S. government (Washington) go to is the question……

  2. Ambassador Poet

    And here is the common link of Miguel Lausell with Anthony Angiulli, the faceless ombudsman of IIMSAM http://icgww.com/consultants.php?c=0
    And here is the link of the effervescent OMBUDSMAN of IIMSAM Anthony Angiulli with Remigio Martin Maradona who claims to be the secretary general of IIMSAM http://iimsam.org/director2.php
    The strange thing is that the biography of the ombudsman Anthony Angiulli does not mention about his education and the experience in jurisprudence that makes his candidature suitable for the post of ombudsman of any organization. Ah………what a concrete example of 21st century Maradona diplomacy :)

    The Fox News reports that IIMSAM has no offices at 23rd floor of 211 East 43rd Street in midtown Manhattan, New York where everything has been ripped out. However, IIMSAM applied for two H1B visas for its staff (http://iimsam.org/director2.php) in what is called as the Executive Office at the Headquaters/Secretariat- http://www.h1bwage.com/employer.php?q=815746&sortby=3
    Request for US H1 B visas for IIMSAM which does not even exist physically in the country is most surprising…..real life is indeed stranger than fiction or human trafficking.

    In 2011, Khaled Shaheen of Jordan (http://fpc.state.gov/documents/organization/141575.pdf, pg1) who was arrested by INTERPOL(http://en.arabstoday.net/2011081824612/khaled-shaheen-from-german-hospital-to-jordanian-jail.html) and now Miguel Lausell of Arevenca; it seems like Remigio Maradona is the head of OPEC rather than of a UN food agency………all the oil dealers are his goodwill ambassador-http://observationofalostsoul.wordpress.com/2011/06/26/1735/

    No wonder Diego Maradona-the so-called Goodwill Ambassador of IIMSAM never uttered a single world either for IIMSAM or for Spirulina which was reported in the international media (https://www.iimsam.org/images/IIMSAM%20OFFICIAL%20PRESS%20RELEASE%20IIMSAM%20GWA%20D.pdf)………….one should take IIMSAM Press Releases with a truckload of salt just for their seriousness.

    Another mysterious aspect of the Fox News Report on IIMSAM (http://www.foxnews.com/world/2013/06/19/mystery-organization-with-un-ties-issues-diplomatic-ids-except-arent/) is the the ‘intergovernmental man of mystery’ Remigio Martin Maradona himself. There are no official records that show that Mr. Remigio Martin Maradona was appointed as a Secretary General of IIMSAM as per the procedures mentioned in the CISRI Consituting Treaty which is submitted at the United Nations Secretariat. No one knows when, by whom and where was he elected the Secretary General of IIMSAM as he claims to be.
    The ratified treaty of IIMSAM by Kenya, Jordan and Haiti are not there at the UN secretariat, which should have been as per the obligations of the countries and intergovernmental organizations under Article 102 of the Charter of the United Nations. Which raises serious doubts on the issue whether these countries really ratified the treaty as is being claimed by IIMSAM.
    Fox News Report on IIMSAM notes that Remigio Martin Maradona has left New York and is based in Dubai, UAE since February 2011 which is also the base of Diego Maradona- who was being claimed as an IIMSAM goodwill ambassador and as a cousin of Remigio Martin Maradona.
    What is indeed strange that the Maradonas- the Champion of Communism, are blowing the trumpet of the ideology by living in tax-free Dubai, UAE. Why is he not living in any IIMSAM Member state country as claimed by the website of the organization is the question ??? It can not get more mysterious than that.

  6. AW

    Read the Foxnews report. IIMSAM issued a Diplomatic Passport on 21 April 2013- that was a SUNDAY. What is going on in here ??? Whatever it is the authorities should take a suo moto cognizance of it, and act accoordingly…

      and all from the Mid East…………………….and

      Whereas these are the real UN laissez passer- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Nations_laissez-passer

      For IIMSAM all LPs are issued by Remigio Maradona of IIMSAM which is sometimes an NGO and IGO; and to whom the UN does not issue ground pass to enter the UN headquarters in New York-

    And there might be a very high probability that the name of the presently called The IIMSAM HRH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan Spirulina Feeding Centre which was called Dar ul Muamneen during Remigio Maradona’s only visit to Kenya in 2009 before it was called ISPDC might be called IIMSAM Spirulina Programme Distribution Centre ISPDC-Kisumu, Kenya again………….such are the ways of the INTERGOVERNMENTAL MAN OF MYSTERY.

  8. IMsider

    How can Remigio Martin Maradona be associated with any respectable organization when charges of larceny and fraud have been alleged against him when he was with WAFUNIF- an NGO in NY. The documents are in the UN archives (https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=cache:sl0bDve-6zUJ:archives-trim.un.org/webdrawer/rec/484449/view/+&hl=en&gl=uk&pid=bl&srcid=ADGEESjc6ullznSpcKM7aa3gema_6P05U6kAe3qoEvgdtde1f9VZZjVrQhxNIAksLGX0NNNv6RDQIlkiVeXg3JRpbgzQeRDF5AL9FB7ukvbKWCmdkptSKzWodH2PB1YnLPOCFJ55Skf2&sig=AHIEtbRWlHzC5-F-gB0h82rUziWF3_ZYMg)

      And Remigio Maradona attempting to be in the league of other polio victims such as Arthur C Clarke, Franklin Roosevelt and Frida Kahlo by blowing his own trumpet.

      Like Stepen Hawking is considered as the greatest scientist of the twentieth century after Einstein, it seems that Remigio Martin Maradona desperately wants to project himself as a Secretary General who is next only to the UN Secretary General Ban ki Moon…well it does show on the homepage of IIMSAM website afterall.

      Why is Remigio Maradona calling himself the Secretary General of IIMSAM is the question when the UN considers, mentions and records IIMSAM as a subsidiary program of CISRI- http://unterm.un.org/DGAACS/unterm.nsf/8fa942046ff7601c85256983007ca4d8/cfe074422aed836d852572090057de0c?OpenDocument

    So clearly this is a sham/scam. The question is, to what end? Greed is always the underlying factor in these but where do they get their money? Who are they bilking??

      H.E. SHAHEEN CHAHIEN
      IIMSAM AMB AT LARGE

      Excellency Shaheen,

      Please be advised that we have protocol procedures to follow when it comes to writing official letters for visas in this takes a bit of time as your request came spontaneously approximately 48 hours ago.
      I have consulted with Amb. Angiulli the Ombudsman and a staunch
      financial-logistical supporter of the organization on the aforementioned
      matter at hand.

      Keeping in mind that IIMSAM and the office of the SG has always stood by you against all odds including some officials from the Jordanian Government and personal attacks on me and Amb. Angiulli that still go on today because of our unyielding commitment to you and the believe that in the offing you will support the organisation (which has not been the case thus far) with the same conviction that we showed to you over the past two years during your vacation.

      Since these are official Diplomatic Letters Amb. Shaheen they may enter the public domain which will produce another series of unwarranted attacks against you, IIMSAM, Anthony and myself which we must prepare for. Please bare this in mind.

      Consequently, I will sent you the letter via email tomorrow. Hence we hope that your pledged commitment via our MOU of 2011 will soon bare fruits for IIMSAM during our upcoming meeting in Dubai.

      Looking forward to meeting you again in Dubai,

      My best regards!
