well we will see how this turns out- but even if man gets jail- probably he knew what he was doing, the risk he was taking, and maybe he even accepted his role as the guy who takes all the responsibility and then after some awesome holiday in jail he will take his lump of cash and live happily ever after

There has to be more to this event than we will all get to know. Pochui is probably clsoe to the point. There has to be something in it for someone....whatever that may be...who knows. But once and for all the whole sorry state needs to be resolved and everyone move on.

I can’t understand why did Ray Bitar gave himself to the police? To try to pass less time at the prison? That would only worked if he had gave himself in the same day of the acusation, not now. About the letter, we have to remember that, if he is going to jail, someone else will be in charge, which means there can be a readjustment of the objectives and of the top priorities. But, at least, Pocket Kings’ workers received a letter saying they will have their salaries paid in July. The problem is that letter was written from someone who doesn’t belong to the company which is allegedly responsible for doing that payment.
