Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC)had its headquarters in Hong Kong until 1993 when he was transferred to London. HSBC's expansion began in earnest in 1992 with the swindle of royalties on the patents of FERRAYÉRoyalties on the sale of patent of Joseph FERRAYE for extinguishing and blocking oil wells were conducted mainly during the "French Trade Week" which has been organized from 23 to 29 September 1991 in Kuwait City. It was after the extinction of the last well after the "Desert Storm" operation. There was talk about more than USD 2,000 to 3,000 billion at the time. The "History" tab, details this period. The systems were also presented at the "Summit on Environment and Development, that was held from 3 to 14 June 1992 in Rio de Janeiro.At first in 1991 and 1992, royalties were defrauded by partners and associates of Joseph FERRAYE, thanks to the complicity of the French government members and the governmental companies such as ELF, FINA, TOTAL, FORASOL,etc. Let us remind that it is the Minister of the INPI Dominique Strauss-Kahn who unveiled patents, unbeknownst to Joseph FERRAYE.Dozens of banks on all continents contributed to swindle the funds, but we will see below than in connection with HSBC. Connections with the largest private banks in Switzerland will appear on the listings.Edmond SAFRA(close friend of lawyer Marc BONNANT) founder of the following banks :RNB Republic National Bank of New York (Suisse) SA à Zürich registered onFebruary, 1st 1988 and removed on August, 22. 2006, under Nr RC CH-020.9.900.967-3.RNB Republic National Bank of New York (Suisse) SA à Genève registered onAugust, 3.1989 and removed on April, 12. 2002, under Nr RC CH-6188.8.131.528-2.RNB Republic National Bank of New York (Suisse) SA à Lugano registered onFebruary, 26. 1988 and removed on Mai, 23. 2001, under Nr RC CH-514.9.009.030-0.Safra SA à Genève registered on December, 17. 1984 and removed on December, 8. 2004under Nr RC CH-660.0.768.984-2.After the sale of the banks “RNB” mentioned above to HSBC, Edmond SAFRA went to settle in MONACO where he was murdered Dec. 3, 1999.On December 29th 1999, three weeks after the assassination of Edmond Safra, HSBC took over the Royal Bank of New York Corp and the Safra Republic Holdings SA for the price of USD 9.85 billion - 1999 value.The American male nurse Ted Maher was convicted and sentenced for the assassination of Edmond Safra and to have been the author of the fire. It was only a staging towards Public Opinion. In reality, the body of Edmond Safra was found with torn testicles put in the mouth, which seemed to be the signature of the Russian Mafia. Of the not identified male DNA was besides found under the nails of SAFRA.According to a witness, after the death of Edmond Safra, his daughter called the governess of his children, to take care of them while the family was discussing the drama in the next room. It was on this occasion that the housekeeper has heard that the body of SAFRA had been found according the description above. Apparently, gunmen blew a hatch in the roof and had entered in less than two minutes into the apartment. According to another witness who had some time previously visited the villa SAFRA, 40 special agents of the MOSSAD watched constantly over the safety of the banker.It is turned out that SAFRA sold weapons to Chechen separatists, likely on behalf of Israel and the US. After the collapse of the Soviet Union this two Countries had an interest in diverting unbridled aggression of Russians in conflicts to CaucasusYet the RTS (French Swiss Television) which covered the trial in MONACO, reported the following facts truncated "the 3.12.1999 around 4:45 am, Ted Maher, male nurse employed by Edmond SAFRA since few months, gave himself several stab wounds to make believe at the eruption in the apartment of two armed and hooded aggressors […] It is only about at 7:45 am, three hours after the beginning of the facts, that the help reached up to the room where they found Edmond SAFRA and his nurse, Viviane TORRENTE, deaths suffocated by the smoke”.Contradiction: according to the policeman Olivier JUDE, Viviane TORRENTE was found strangled…Edmond Safra was suffering from Parkinson's disease and depended on his male nurse to move. At the time of the procedure to Monaco, lawyer Marc BONNANT has ensured the defense of SAFRA. Before their hearing the witnesses, maids and housekeeping staff were prepared for questions that would be asked and each one had received replies he had to give. Witnesses may confirm the aboveMarc BONNANT has mounted this whole scenario to cover his conspiracy and cover up the fact that he used the network of private bankers and network BIN LADEN to divert funds from royalties.The signing of the Chechens in the killing of Edmond SAFRA demonstrates the will of BIN LADEN with the help of the Chechens, to take revenge against those who had used its banking networks.As noted above, Marc BONNANT was a close friend of Edmond Safra. But it is very likely according to the bank investigations, that Marc BONNANT has been aware of the involvement of his friend in the diversions operated since 1991 by the MOSSAD, ELF and MOTTU and others - who have addressed to the Republic National Bank of New York to channel funds swindled - only after the sequester obtained in 1996.Recall that following the sequester of January 1996 obtained by Daniel LEVAVASSEUR, former DGSE agent in the service of Joseph FERRAYE - on complaint of the Inventor, written by Marc BONNANT and his partner Dominique WARLUZEL - that the two lawyers above were then corrupted and thereby that Marc BONNANT had declared that it was absolutely necessary that Joseph FERRAYE do not receive a dollar, because he would use it to make them all to go to jail ...The Presidents George W. BUSH and Bill CLINTON and members of the Western governments, led by France, have set fire to the powder and ignited the Islamists Populations to cover their crimes ... For the USA and Barack Obama, the only way to restore the situation is to admit the truth and prosecute those responsible.Financial network of Osama BIN LADEN to launder FERRAYE's royaltiesSuccessive attacks of Osama BIN LADEN against HSBCprove the involvement of the bank in the embezzlement of funds FERRAYE. Moreover, the proceedings between Jacob Safra (Edmond brother) and Lily, wife of Edmond Safra - whose the defender of the wife was Marc BONNANT again - try to demonstrate that a conflict had occurred after the death of Edmond SAFRA, for the sharing of swindled amounts. Moreover Marc BONNANT was a member of the board of several SAFRA companies…Public opinion has been poisoned by misinformation and misrepresentation in connection with the attacks of 11 September 2001 in the USA.During the searches in Switzerland and France, on the premises of Yeslam BIN LADEN (Osama's brother) following the attacks, the judicial authorities have established the existence of a UBS account opened until 1997.Yeslam BIN LADEN, said that this account represented the inheritance of their father distributed among the 54 children of the late Mohammed BIN LADEN.However, as evidenced by the following excerpt from an article of October, 12. 2001, the father of Yeslam and Osama BIN LADEN died in 1968 in a helicopter crash - Le Point 12.10.2001Yeslam BIN LADEN reportedly told the French magistrate Renaud Van RUYMBEKE, that two of his brothers had opened this account at Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS Geneva), on which he had power to collect the family inheritance. Legacy then redistributed on many accounts there were heirs, including Osama BIN LADEN.…Thus, the inheritance would have been distributed more than 30 years after the father's death ... of which we kidding ?As seen below, this account would have justified a balance of more than US $ 16 billion. Geneva's judges have therefore entirely assembled this misinformation to cover "their involvement and responsibility in the attacks" and ensure the security of their accomplice Yeslam ... As a reward, the terrorist's brother obtained Swiss citizenship of the Geneva authorities…Yeslam BIN LADEN explained that this bank account was used to gather the family heritage before being redistributed among the heirs. He was heard as a witness assisted in an investigation for "laundering" in Paris. The judge VAN RUYMBEKE had before since December 2001 a survey on financial flows between different companies belonging to Yeslam BIN LADEN, a naturalized Swiss, so that he would not be « available »…The Geneva authorities were protecting their accomplice against the extradition, in the image of american citizen Marc RICH living in Switzerland (see Tab USA),economic criminal sentenced to 325 years prison in the USA, but pardoned by Bill CLINTON on request of Pierre DE WECK, UBS Director... In conformance for criminal mutual aid… Within the Organized Crime étatico-banking everything goes very fast… The request DE WECKwas addressed to President CLINTON on December, 4..2000 and the presidential pardon intervened in the same month as evidenced by the Press article available HERE.You can be assured that if Hillary CLINTON presents itself for the 2016 election, she will have no difficulty in financing his campaign...The operated misappropriations were made in complicity with Petroleum exporting countries and ABB Vetco Gray Switzerland (Donald RUMSFELD as administrator), ELF, FORASOL (society of drilling in Paris), GEOSERVICE (society of drilling belonging to Jean-Christophe MITTERAND son of the french President who had swindle de royalties), PIPELINE SERVICES acting every under cover of ARAMCO(Arabian American Company) belonging to the State of Saudi Arabia, State which does not recognize this day the Intellectual property right. The investigations have already revealed hundreds of companies in Europe connected to the misappropriations and the list grows up every day. All will be criminally prosecuted, just like the members of their boards of directors since 1991. This last point contributes to give the measure of the financial responsibility of Companies and States which were in collusion.In another article of the "Network Voltaire", we see that Osama BIN LADEN has touched his part of the Saudi BIN LADEN Group and not the legacy claimed by Yeslam in 1994 for an amount of USD 300 million.If each of the 54 siblings of Yeslam BIN LADEN have received the same amount of USD 300 million, this represents a total of USD 16'200'000'000.-. (USD 16.2 billion).Yet in his two statements of February 6th, 1996 and April 3rd, 1996, the Notar Pierre MOTTU, author of the agreements for the transfers of the held royalties, declared (on 03.04.1996 in page 5), that 17 billion dollars were the object of compensations which must be paid to Joseph FERRAYE. The General prosecutor of Geneva Bernard BERTOSSA, the Lawyers BONNANT and WARLUZEL and the Notar MOTTU, seem to have granted the rights granted by the sponsors(sleeping partners) of the protagonists of the plot, (the French government members) to Yeslam BIN LADEN, the new beloved SWISS citizen of the Genevans crime organisation, to thanks him to give them the access of the financial network in which they have embezzled funds to make them not retraçables !From then on Osama BIN LADEN's war against the USA was declared. As Muslim pure, Osama BIN LADEN could not tolerate that the Western Organized crime used his financial network.The first attacks against the World Trade Center in 1993, then those against the American embassies of Nairobi and Dar es Salaam in 1998, those of Dharan, the Yemen (the ship US COLE in October, 2000), show his claw, just like the successive attacks all around the world against the HSBC.This is probably what context that gave the idea to the Republican George W. BUSH of commanditer the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and to shifting the responsibility to Osama BIN LADEN... Certainly, the Government BUSH had under estimated the consequences of his actions ! But not surprising coming from such a character.Osama bin Laden has declared war to the USA from the time when the conspiracy protagonists have looted IRAQ (Islamic countries) by increasing the cost of extinctions by 2.6, according to the revelation of Swiss prosecutor Bernard BERTOSSA. In February 1996 after the seizure of the funds (2'000 to 3'000 billion USD) following the complaint of Joseph FERRAYE, BIN LADEN issued a call to attack US interests worldwide. He therefore became Official public enemy No. 1 United States.4,000 criminal investigations were opened in the WTC towers, on ladles stock transactions and on money laundering. Of articles have also confirmed that the WTC housed the informatic archives of WALL STREET... So, with the destruction of the WTC, the BUSH government has removed all evidence of his involvement in the embezzlement of some $ 2,000 to 3,000 billion of funds collected with the sale of the FERRAYE systems !Was it enough for the protagonists of the US government, to organize a terrorist attack which cost the life of 2'977 of its citizens and has injured 6,300 others ? Money and fear of having to assume their responsibilities do have they pushed the leaders of the biggest world power to such atrocities ?This period corresponds to the date of the use of the network of Osama BIN LADEN by his brother Yeslam and the protagonists of the plot - French State, Republic and Canton of Geneva, the cantons of Vaud, Zurich, Aargau, Basel and Zug at the front - are the first responsible for terrorism in the West.Then have followed all the Swiss cantons to operate laundering and as stated by National Councillor PDC (Party De/of Corruption) in Canton Fribourg Dominique DE BUMAN to the press : "Everything is rotten in our Canton ! If I revealed what I know, that is all federal Switzerland that will tremble ... " !This is perhaps why the President of the European Commission Jean-Claude JUNCKERlick everyone who come to him, starting with Simonetta SOMMARUGA, The President of the Swiss Confederationwho seems to revel... and women do not have the exclusivity of Jean-Claude JUNCKER if we observe the hugs believes made to the new Greek Prime Minister Alexis TSIPRAS.Jean-Claude JUNKER was Prime Minister of Luxembourg at the time of the swindle of the royalties.In 1996, at the time of the levying of the sequestrations of the defrauded royalties, the Clearing house CEDEL with headquartered in Luxembourg and branch in Geneva, became CLEARSTREAM.It was headed by André LUSSY, a former of UBS ... Elle était alors dirigée par André LUSSY, ex UBS…CLEARSTREAM offered any opacity needed for traffic carried by criminals. And JUNKER did not only launder the tax evasion with his Government, but he has contributed to the swindle and to the laundering of hundreds of billions of dollars of FERRAYE royalties.. Ernest Backes, complicit in these diversions against FERRAYE and co-signer of the book Revelation$, was an employee of CEDEL that become CLEARSTREAM He knew the workings and was dismissed, which led him to denounce. However, BACKES wanted to negotiate these revelations and it is for this reason that after having promised to FERRAYE, to help him by giving him all the documents, he ended up "selling" the inventor and has given the documents to Bernard BERTOSSA, the swiss Procecutor in Geneva. He was thus corrupted by BERTOSSA. The hundreds of billions are directly the source of the CLEARSTREAM CASE" since 1992.It is interesting to note that on February 18, 2015, a search was ordered by the Attorney General of Geneva Olivier JORNOD at HSBC headquarters. The search was made by the Attorney General Olivier JORNOD and the Attorney Yves BERTOSSA, son of Bernard BERTOSSA that helped to swindle the FERRAYE royalties ... This is how works "justice" in Geneva where EVERYTHING IS CORRUPT ! It is very important for the Organized Crime, to ensure that no any breach will reveal the crimes they have commited !CLEARSTREAM CLEARSTREAM serves to mask the financial flows, whether lawful or criminals. Revelation$of Denis ROBERT and Ernest Backes shows that "The reasons for these cover-ups of international bank transfers are numerous. They can range from the simple collection of confidentiality in the commercial sale to opérations of laundering, through cases of insider trading, crime, the corruption, money laundering or tax evasion. "The means of this occultation is the practice of "unpublished accounts".CLEARSTREAM began to open non-published accounts that would have multiplied since the early nineties -the embezzlement of hundreds of billions of FERRAYE occurred in July 1991. Among 1’900accounts in CLEARSTREAM in 1995, these accounts were in number of 7’500five years laterIt means the equivalent of half of all accounts managed by the company of the Swiss André LUSSI former responsible of UBS AG... And this at a time when some 2,000 to 3,000 billion dollars (course at that time) were swindled ... The video below is significative of the HSBC operating mode in these transactions.Given the capital returns on last 20 years, this amount can be multiplied by 10, not including damages.A study of Christian CHAVAGNEUX, author of "Economics and International Policy" headline in the newspaper "Economic Alternatives" No. 194, July 2001« 4000 billions dirty money euro »« LThe case CLEARSTREAM upset the estimates made so far onthe amount of dirty money circulating in the world ».The story begins in last February, when the book of Denis Robert and Ernest Backes, Revelation$, came out (ed. The Arena). It explains how the private company CLEARSTREAM have organized a parallel accounting ("unpublished" accounts) which records international financial transfers, in some case doubtful.Bernard SABRIERfounder of the following banks bought up by SAFRA banks :Besides the fact that Bernard SABRIERwas a director of three banks "RNB" of Edmond Safra mentioned above, he was also the founder of the banks "UNIGESTION", one of the banks which were acquired by RNB Republic National Bank of New Yorkof Edmond Safra after release of the sequestrations by Bernard BERTOSSA. Was it to erase all traces of complicity in the swindle of the royalties ?Bank Unigestion SA registered on June, 3rd 1971 and canceled on March 22, 2000 under numberRC CH-020.9.900.967-3. Assets acquired by RNB Republic National Bank of New York (Suisse) SA in Geneva.Unigestion Holding SA registered on August 11, 1988 under number RC CH-660.0.627.988-7Links with the protagonists who initiated the swindle of the royaltiesIt is interesting to observe in the context of the two bankers (SAFRA above and SABRIER), both are the administrators and shareholders of these banks, which are directly related to the protagonists who initiated the swindle of the FERRAYE royalties.The pdf file accessible here (143 pages) gives an idea of the magnitude of SAFRA and Consorts laundering network and without taking into account the specific companies HSBC that we shall see below. But the worst is that all this information was provided to the Swiss federal criminal authorities,which found no irregularities suspicion... Numerous companies with the same name, created under differents RC numbers seems have no interest by any swiss prosecutor... Is it because homonyms of these prosecutors appear in large numbers in our database of money laundering ? This indicates in any case the level of corruption of Swiss institutions till to the top of the swiss state, just like for France besides... The rules of law have been given way to the Organized Crime, to develop their activity !The opposite video "understand in 3 minutes the backlash HSBC" gives a concrete idea about the way in which all members of this gigantic crime organization, escape the judicial prosecutions.But beyond and through the press, how they are, with the help of corrupt governments, implementing a new strategy to permanently launder the swindled funds, which are calculated in trillions of Euros, USD or CHF, etc. This strategy should enable the holders of swindled royalties (natural or legal persons) to officially become the owner of hidden funds, against a small substantial fine, to let the right people believe that "justice" done its job ..... That is why in no country, for none of the cases reported in the press, ministers governments and other bodies of "justice" do not seek or rather do not want to investigate the source of the funds that have avoid the taxman.Is HSBC the washing machine of dirty money from Credit Suisse and UBS ?Take the example of “HSBC Private Bank (Suisse) SA in GenevaRC CH-660.0.074.001-4” registered on 09.01.20013 Admin. when crating :Junod Charles-André, de Sainte-Croix, à Chêne-Bougeries, adm. presidentJacquemoud Jean-Pierre, de Genève, à Genève, adm. vice-presidentMarcos Ezra, de Genève, à Genève, adm. secretaryThe links that emerge in this pdf file(469 pages) demonstrate how a handful of individuals have organized - after having swindled thousands of billions of royalties - the take of control of the world economy. We meet of course the names of Marc BONNANT, Pierre MOTTU, Alexandre Zeller who ensuing funds since their swindle (CREDIT SUISSE, BCV, HSBC), Jean-Paul AESCHIMANN, Anton AFFENTRANGER (UBS) and many Freemasons, politicians , bankers, etc.Do we have then to wonder at the excesses of the economy, when this one is in the hands of individuals without morals who ignore ethics and are without any qualms. All the more by knowing that the politicians who want to be elected (see Dominique DE DEBUMAN above),make it only to benefit of the fallout, which the Organized crime dispenses, not to be bothered by the "justice" ?The "cronies" in place in Geneva, control the European financePdf link above presented us some of "cronies" in Geneva, who have totally lost their mind when the financial windfall of hundreds of billions of dollars was put in their hands ... They believed take control of the world and now the boomerang returns to them. It's time to build new prisons.According to the merger agreement of April 10,.2001 HSBC Private Bank (Suisse) SA in Geneva(CH-660.0.074.001) created on January 9, 2001 took over the assets of HSBC Republic Bank (Suisse) SA Geneva (New name of RNB Republic National Bank of New York (Suisse) SA SAFRA, with assets of CHF 24'658'630'000 and a liability to third parties CHF 23'575'504'000 or net assets of CHF 1'083'126 '000.At the same time (3 to the same date of merger) the following institutions were taken over by HSBC Republic Bank (Suisse) SA Geneva :•HSBC Bank USA Singapour CHF 89'742'000 - 10.04.2001•HSBC Bank USA Hong KongCHF120'806'000 - 10.04.2001•HSBC Investment Bank Asia Ltd Hong KongCHF319'273'000 - 10.04.2001•Crédit Commercial de France GenèveCHF 26'599'802 - 24.02.2003•HSBC Private Bank LuxembourgCHF124'956'000 - 05.09.2008CHF681’376’802The purpose of these multiple mergers was certainly to remove any trace of transfers of funds swindled on royalties.This leads us to understand that the RNB Republic National Bank of New York (Suisse) SA Geneva former property of Edmond SAFRA, registered under No. RC CH-660.0.074.001-4 has held 4 times more funds than all HSBC in the world... Il is sure that, Marc BONNANT and his partner Dominique WARLUZEL, lawyers in Geneva have realized the situation, after the complaint they had written for Joseph FERRAYE, which led to the funds receivership.This is undoubtedly why the two Geneva Lawyers BONNANT and WARLUZEL - praised during 20 years by the press and the Swiss French television, that are to their orders and who will shoulder a heavy responsibility due to their public disinformation - have betrayed their Client and took control of the scam, in collusion with the bankers, the Notary Pierre MOTTU, Zurich lawyer Mark BRUPPACHER, Lawyers and members of the French Government, etc.CREDIT SUISSE regains control of "cronies" instead Geneva areaSchweizerische Kreditanstalt on today CREDIT SUISSE, was involved early on in the swindle of the royalties, by Rainer E. GUT- pdf file(2’834 pages) who was the President and who also signed in the offshore society EVERTON Enterprise Ltdin the british Virgin Islands. This society was created to transfer the swindled royalties. In that pdf file connection, with the presence of Josef Ackermann, one becomes aware of the corruption and money laundering at the international. This demonstrate how individuals can cause groundingof a national company (SWISSAIR), on october 2, 2001, in the sole purpose of laundering billions they have swindled, regardless at any time of the economic consequences for the populationOn December 3rd, 2008, CREDIT SUISSE wants to take over the team of "cronies" of the Geneva Finance and nearly 8 years after the creation of HSBC Private Bank (Suisse) SA Geneva,CREDIT SUISSE places his token Alexandre ZELLER at the head of HSBC. It was under his leadership that numerous data have been stolen by the whistle-blower Hervé FALCIANI.Four months later, HSBC Guyerzeller Bank AG Zurich with branch in Geneva, registered in the RC on April, 28, 1939 with a capital of CHF 5,000,000 has been merged. It was only on January 31, 2002 (laundering after removal of sequesters) that the capital of the aforementioned bank had increased from CHF 5,000,000 to CHF 55'000'000, then CHF 95'000'000 three months later on April 25, 2002. It was at that time that were carried out mergers with Crédit Commercial de France (Suisse) SA in Geneva and Handelsfinanz-CCF Bank in Geneva too. HSBC Guyerzeller Bank AG Zurich was acquired by HSBC Private Bank (Suisse) SA Genevaby the merger agreement of March 12, 2009.For the record, in 2000, HSBC acquired Crédit Commercial de France (CCF). On November 9, 2005, CCF and certain of its subsidiaries (Hervet Bank, Bank of Baecque Beau, Picardie and UBP Bank (Union Bank of Paris) changed their name to appear in the HSBC brand. During the first half of 2008, HSBC has sold its seven Banques Populaires regional banks that do not appear in the HSBC brand: SMC, Banque de Savoie, Chaix, Marze, Dupuy de Parseval, Pelletier and CCSO. On August 1st, 2005, the former CCF, Hervet Bank, Bank of Baecque Beau, UBP and Picard Bank legally merged under the name of HSBC France (wikipedia).ConclusionLike what the BCCI (Bank of Credit and Commerce International) based once again in Luxembourg before his resounding bankrupcy in 1972, HSBC is undoubtedly the financial institution that offers the best structure for the organized Crime.Whatever the "Corporate governance" officially provided by the bank and its multiple satellites, HSBC offers all the options to get around the laws, Swindle the citizens (Libor, Euribor, Subprime, etc.). HSBC is dipped in all shenanigans. And here, again no surprise when one considers that the bank in question has based its strategy on swindle and money laundering of hundreds of billions, through unscrupulous protagonists, acting absolutely Fearing neither god nor law...It is time to put an end to this bank of Thugs and we will take control of all its assets as compensation for the damage suffered.
Etude Bonnat - Warluzel Genève
ICIJThe International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (180 journalists worldwide)SwissLeaks. OffshoreLeaks, etc. speak to us constantly about " Fraud of tax evasion "... Let us then Ourselves Ask the question to know why these " great journalists " never try to understand where from come funds held on the accounts which they are aware.What are the Newspapers involved in the revelations of ICIJ? The Washington Post, the BBC, the Guardian, the Süddeutsche Zeitung. In France Mediapart, Le Monde and in Switzerland Le Temps (Tamedia) etc.For France and Switzerland in any case, it is obvious that the concerned Newspapers were financed by the laundering of FERRAYÉ swindled royalties. Therefore, should we be surprised that the information (example 4 pages in The "LE MATIN DIMANCHE" 15/2/2014) is only a subject treated in a cosmetic way and a pure laundering of the information... ?Why CREDIT SUISSE whose direct connection with HSBC Private Bank is obvious, is never cited ?
The Villa Leopolda was acquired in 1999 by Edmond SAFRA. It is located on the heights of Villefranche-sur-Mer and Beaulieu-sur-Mer, at a place called Caire Pass, between Nice and Monaco. It has a panoramic view of Cap Ferrat and the Mediterranean Sea. It is surrounded by an eight-hectare park, planted more than 1,200 trees of various species (olive, cypress, lemon, orange and plum) and requires for its maintenance over fifty gardeners. Value estimated at CHF 700'000'000.- its high estimate.
