Hope's publicist last night confirmed that he had been arrested but said that he denies all allegations. The FSA confirmed no-one has been charged in connection with the investigation and that the arrest is not linked to any other investigations.

His personal website describes him as a “a name to watch out for in the city” and “an expert in the UK economy” who regularly "trades millions".

Blimey - they're going for the entire government, the BoE and to cap it off the opposition as well.

Hope's co-defendant, Raj Von Badlo, who had earlier pleaded guilty, was sentenced to a total of 2 years’ imprisonment for recklessly making false representations to investors and promoting a collective investment scheme without authorisation.
Raj Von Badlo (also known as Raj Shastri) promoted Hope’s scheme to a large group of investors. Over 75 investors gave £4.29 million to Hope as a result of Von Badlo’s actions.

Mr Shastri is also known as Raj Von Badlo and admitted to The Telegraph that he is currently bankrupt. "It's a long story, nothing to do with property," he said.
Mr Von Badlo also faces charges from the Financial Conduct Authority, the City regulator, for his part in an unauthorised Forex trading scheme.

Looks like the same person.

Maybe BTL has reached is Jonestown moment, where the charasmatic leader has them all lined up, drinking his special 'Meet God' KoolAid?

HE, for he was a god, was interviewed all over the place, he was fawned over as a business genius, reporters sucked on his very breath for inspiration, Even the Money Program nodded sagely that here, at last, was a man who had discovered the holy Grayel, he was the inspiration of property shows, he was the business Jesus of the airways.

And it was all a Ponzi.

And all the questioning on this very site about this man was poo pooed...(goes right back)

And what of his victims...the Telegraph is light on this area...can we expect to see headlines on the victims plight...I really hope so, so others can learn.
