|Criminal Organization Munir Uwaydah Appears For Pretrial On Friday, September 25th. However, Dr. Uwaydah Himself Does Not Appear And Neither Does Wendee Luke. |
By Lonce LaMon - September 27, 2015
It was deja-vu on Friday morning, September 25th 2015, in the Downtown Los Angeles criminal court house in court room 109, the department of the Honorable Kathleen Kennedy. It was here that Kelly Soo Park was acquitted by a Los Angeles jury in this very same court room back on June 4th 2013 in a stunning, shattering, and shocking verdict that defied all the evidence.
All the usual and customary players were here from the Kelly Soo Park crowd, filing in at 8:30 AM: her mother Irene, her sister Kim, her Aunt Vallee, her uncle, her cousin, Tom Chronister, her husband, and even Chronister's mother. Also there were the usual others who go along regularly with the Park-friends-and-family coterie. Now that two indictments have been unsealed since September 14th 2015 for massive insurance fraud in Southern California, they’ve all come back to roost.
There are 15 defendants but only 13 arrests with all remaining in custody.
The two who have not yet been arrested are Wendee Luke, a Uwaydah assistant, and Dr. Munir Uwaydah himself. Wendee Luke is believed to be in Estonia, presently. Uwaydah was last believed to be in Germany.
The games have begun once again.
Dr. Munir Uwaydah, the medical fraud cartel leader whose is the name sake of Criminal Organization Munir Uwaydah, dubbed by the prosecutors, has been on the lam since June of 2010. So naturally, he did not appear in court. His medical services criminal ring focused on workers’ compensation fraud in Southern California; but his life long history of fraudulent activities is not limited to workers’ compensation fraud or even general medical services fraud. His criminally degenerate actions which also include but are not limited to real estate fraud and child custody fraud, extend around the world multiple times.
Some believe he is not really in custody in Germany as the LA District Attorney's office announced and, thus, news reports began reporting around September 15th. The word was Uwaydah had been arrested on Wednesday of the week prior, which would make it September 9th, in Germany, and was being held and awaiting extradition. But now there are rumblings that that’s not a happening.
Some bail bondsmen chatted out in the hallway outside court room 109, during the morning proceedings, discussing that they don’t believe Uwaydah is really in custody at all. A confidential communicator from Germany communicated to this writer that it is also uncertain that Uwaydah is in custody in Germany. Nothing was announced about Uwaydah’s whereabouts in court except for this comment from Judge Kennedy when the prosecutor stated that Uwaydah was a flight risk:
The Honorable Kathleen Kennedy: Not only is he a flight risk, he fled!
Now that this gang--but specifically Kelly Soo Park-- got away with the murder of aspiring model and actress, Juliana Redding, they are finally indicted for massive workers’ compensation fraud and other auxiliary offenses. Will they get away with this massive insurance fraud? Or will it turn out like O.J. Simpson with Kelly Soo Park being acquitted for murder but going to prison for massive theft, corruption, aggravated mayhem, and fraud?
The Los Angeles District Attorney cites the fraud has extended to over 150 million dollars, but one insurance industry investigator has expressed it could possibly be as high as 400 million dollars in fraud losses.
The bail amount for Munir Uwaydah has been set by the LADA at $22,375,000. Of course, since Uwaydah did not appear in court, he could not file a motion for a bail reduction. Reductions were filed by other defendants but only one was granted to Jeffrey Stevens, a capper and the shell company owner of California MRI. His bail was reduced from $19,375,000 to $10,000,000.
Stevens is represented by Richard Moss and Bill Fleming, the same lawyers who are presently defending Sim Hoffman, M.D. in the preliminary hearing presently in progress in Westminster, California.
When Kelly Soo Park appeared on Friday and sat down at the end of the attorneys' table, she was wearing an orange jail suit for the first time. Her bail bondsman, Josh Herman, said that Kelly Soo along with the other women defendants in this case, have been placed in a special top level security facility called K-10. They are in Lynwood.
Kelly Soo looked the same with her long, beautiful dark hair and slender body. She wept in her usual and customary manner, causing red, swollen eyes with bags under them. She looked over to her relatives in the second row center gallery seats and smiled. Her attorney, Mark Kassabian, argued for her bail reduction alone. Kassabian's law partner, George Buehler, who argued Kelly Soo's innocence in her murder trail just over two years ago, did not appear in court. Buehler's classic line in his closing arguments of that murder trial, explaning the enormous sums of money she was paid by Uwaydah's organization, was, "She's a successful business woman."
After Kelly Soo Park was taken away through the side door of the court, her friends and family filed out. At the end of the line were Kelly Soo's mother, Irene, and her sister, Kim. Both were weeping. Irene clasped the hands of the slender and attractive African-American woman deputy, and cried to her softly as they stood in the corner of the antechamber. Irene asked the deputy to please pray for her.
