Risk Alert – Entity in a problematic sector - Sector controlled by the Top Alert entities

“The US embassy in Berlin announced that a slated pro-Iranian regime business conference on Thursday in Berlin will fund terrorism. The event includes members of the German government and Klaus Ernst, a MP from the largely anti-Israel Left Party in the Bundestag. “Thursday’s conference by the Maleki Corporate Group to promote trade with the Iranian regime is a dangerous move that will fund terrorism and undermine US sanctions, ” the embassy tweeted on Tuesday…The Maleki Corporate Group GmbH is holding their 8th Banking and Business Forum Iran Europe on September 19 and 20 at the Maritim Hotel in Berlin.The Frankfurt-based Volksbank is listed as the financial institution that receives registration fees for the conference. The conference costs 1,400 Euro for two days. It is unclear if the city of Frankfurt will ban business with the bank because of its ties to a pro-Iranian regime event. The City of Frankfurt outlaws business with banks that conduct transactions with the Boycott, Divestement and Sanctions (BDS) campaign targeting Israel. Iran’s mullah regime supports BDS. When asked about the criticism of the Hotel hosting Iranian regime representatives, Harriet Eversmeyer, Director of Public Relations for the Maritim Hotel, told the Post that: ‘As a leading provider of conference and congress capacities in Germany, there are more than 30 Maritim hotels throughout Germany, in which large events of companies, associations, lobbyists, parties take place. As an owner-managed private enterprise, however, it is not our task to evaluate the content of these events or exclude customers from our hotel offer.'” (Jerusalem Post, “US Embassy Says Pro-Iran Business Event Funds Terrorism In Berlin,” 9/17/2019).
