The spouse’s social media post alleges that the arrest stems from charges raised by the senior executives at easyMarkets. The claims also include allegations that a particular client of the brokerage allegedly paid the Cypriot mafia to scare the management of the firm by detonating an explosive device near one of the old properties of Michael Konnaris.
According to the spouse of Craig Jenkins, the management of easyMarkets has wrongly accused her husband who is currently under arrest and will be taken to court tomorrow morning. Update: Craig Jenkins was released on Sunday, the 11th of September 2016 without any charges after spending 4 days in police custody.
Craig Jenkins commented to Finance Magnates, “I was conducting an official company investigation at the request of the CEO and with the knowledge of the company owners. I was risking my personal safety to protect the interests of the company and staff who I care about a great deal. All aspects of the investigation were conducted entirely legally and I have behaved professional at all times.”
“The allegations that I was in any way connected with the bombing are ridiculous and completely false and the Police, obviously found not one shred of evidence against me. I asked the company to apologise to me for exposing me to danger and ensuring I spent four days in a cockroach infested cell but they refused. I am receiving legal advice on what action to take against the company,” he elaborated.
