US Opposes Release Of Infamous And Dying Swindler, Bernie Madoff

The US government opposed Bernard Madoff’s request to be freed from prison even if he is close to death from kidney failure, saying he has never accepted responsibility for his massive Ponzi scheme or shown compassion for victims.

In a Wednesday night court filing, prosecutors said denying the 81-year-old Madoff’s request would uphold victims’ and public faith in the justice system.

They said Madoff should continue serving his 150-year sentence, to ensure that “one of history’s worst fraudsters” faces the consequences of his crimes.

“Madoff’s crimes were extraordinarily evil,” prosecutors said. “His sentence was appropriately long. It should not be reduced.”

Prosecutors also said roughly 500 of the 520 victims who wrote to the Manhattan federal court about Madoff’s request opposed it, including an 84-year-old who said: “Why should he be shown any compassion, when he had none for his many victims?”

The filing came one month after Madoff sought “compassionate release,” saying he had fewer than 18 months to live and hoped to move in with a friend.

“Madoff, despite what the government might claim, is remorseful for his conduct,” and “remains hopeful” his request will be granted, his lawyer Brandon Sample said in an email

According to world.smiilee.com:

“Bernie Madoff was sentenced in 2009 to 150 years in prison, after pleading guilty to 11 criminal counts, including fraud and money laundering.”

“Two years after his arrest, in December 2011, his eldest his Mark Madoff was found hanged in his apartment.”

“A year later, in December 2012, Peter Madoff, his brother, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for accounting fraud. It is supposed to come out of his federal prison in Miami in August 2020.”

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
