U.S. Attorney Les Osborne and two FBI agents travelled to Majorca this week to speak with a key witness relating to a major wire fraud case in Hawaii, involving a British national.
Palma.—The case relates to a fraud of 200,000 US dollars (147,771 euros) paid by the University of Hawaii to organise a Stevie Wonder concert in order to raise funds for the University’s athletics department.
But the concert never went ahead, and since then police have singled out two main suspects, a British national and a US national, who supposedly acted as the concert organisers.
The two suspects are both free after being granted bail, while they await trial.
US Attorney Les Osborne spoke to the Bulletin and its sister paper Ultima Hora, and even though he warned he could not reveal much about the case, he admitted that the trip to Majorca to speak with a key witness was not in vain. “I travelled from Hawaii to speak with this witness and we believe it will be very important for the case,” Osborne said.
