Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg will visit Israel in May to receive the inaugural Genesis Prize for people whose actions embody the character of the Jewish people through commitment to Jewish values, the Jewish community and/or to the State of Israel.

Bloomberg is the first recipient of the $1 million Genesis Prize. The prize, awarded by the Genesis Philanthropy Group, “seeks to recognize individuals who have attained excellence and international renown in their chosen professional fields” and “to recognize the laureate’s contribution to the betterment of humankind.”

Grammy award-winning pianist Evgeny Kissin, and a new Israeli citizen as of late last year, will be the featured musical performer at a star-studded event when former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is honored at the inaugural Genesis Prize ceremony in Jerusalem this May.

“Like Mayor Bloomberg, Evgeny Kissin is an exceptional individual whose values and achievements will inspire the next generation of Jews, ” said Stan Polovets, Chairman of the Board of the Genesis Prize Foundation. “We are thrilled to have him join us for this momentous occasion.”

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will present Michael Bloomberg with the award, which is endowed by Genesis Philanthropy Group and awarded annually in partnership with the prime minister’s office and the Jewish Agency for Israel.

    Sods —–
    Law.
    March.—-
    2014.

    For almost two
    decades we have strived to get justice for the injustice we have
    suffered at the hands of a world renowned bank— PICTET & CIE.
    BANK.

    Two yorkshiremen
    both running their own small family businesses trying to resolve the
    problem by taking all the correct legal procedures to recover their
    monies.

    The matter was
    raised in Parliament – twice– the FSA investigated the matter
    concluding that PICTET had rogues operating in their London Bank —
    but the rogues had left —saying no one left to prosecute.??? —–
    so there.

    We then
    approached the Financial Ombudsman Service. (FOS) — our case was
    dealt with by seven different people —- then our numerous E-Mails
    were ignored — nobody would speak to us ——-so there.

    We then asked the
    SFO ( Serious Fraud Office.) to investigate our case —- the
    criteria of our case ticked all their boxes. — we were instructed
    not to send them

    any
    documents/evidence.—— in fact they wrote to us advising us to go
    to the Citizen’s Advice Bureau.(CAB.)
    Richard Alderman
    the SFO boss —- who responded to our letter was the same man who
    would not investigate the “ Madoff” scandal or the “Libor”
    fiasco.
    The MP’s
    committee —- said he was sloppy— and the SFO was run like “
    Fred Karno’s Circus” —– it was an office of fraud.—– so
    there.

    Our M.P.
    approached our local Chief Constable to investigate—– he was
    called—- Sir Norman Bettison— Chief Constable of West Yorkshire
    Police —- a force that made “ Dad’s Army” look like the S.A.S.
    They were inept – corrupt —malicious — from top to bottom. We
    were criminally dealt with by the Forces Solicitor—- the Head of
    the Economic Crime Unit —-and the Chief Constable —– so there.

    We were then
    advised to pass our complaint against West Yorkshire Police to the
    I.P.C.C. – which we did — they advised us to make our complaint
    to —- the West Yorkshire Police — we did with reluctance — all
    we got was abuse and obfuscation. —– so there.

    Sir Norman
    Bettison —- The Forces solicitor— and the Head of the Economic
    Crime —- have all been removed from their posts and facing criminal
    allegations.
    —— so there.

    We even sought
    justice through the Courts — culminating in a visit to the Court of
    Appeal-London.— On leaving the Courts of Appeal that day our
    barrister a “rising star” informed us — that if that was
    Justice then you can keep it. He quit the law and moved to Canada
    —– so there.

    A few years later
    we learned that one of the judges in our case at the Court of Appeal
    was related to a senior executive of the Pictet Bank —–so there.

    Pictet & Cie
    .Bank — voted private bank of the year 2013.
    Ivan Pictet —-
    Voted banker of the year 2012. —- the senior partner — lied on
    numerous occasions and had documents destroyed — also said genuine
    documents were forgeries. —– so there.

    Ivan Pictet in
    Oct. 2013 —- Given the Legion of Honour — but saying that —-
    honours were given to Hitler — Eichmann — Mussolini —Franco
    — he’s in fitting company. —-so there.

    MONTY
    RAPHAEL.Q.C. — Peters & Peters.London. They were the banks
    lawyers.
    Monty
    Raphael.Q.C. along with Ivan Pictet withheld crucial documents
    requested by the High Court —- the FSA —- and the police Fraud
    Squad. —-so there.

    Monty
    Raphael.Q.C. became an Honorary Queens Counsellor in March. 2012.
    Monty
    Raphael.Q.C. became a Master of the Bench in Nov.2012.
    An expert in
    Fraud —the Doyen of Fraud Lawyers. —– so there.

    This says a lot
    about Banks — the consensus of opinion is that they are highly paid
    “crooks” —- no wonder they voted Ivan Pictet banker of the
    year.

    It appears that
    crimes in the “establishment.” are honoured by their peers.
    “HONOURS
    AMONG THIEVES.”
