“Daniel Kinahan will pay in prison or out of prison” – RICO attorney Eric Montalvo says the cartel boss will not escape a lawsuit

Eric Montalvo told this Sunday world He is aware of increasing cooperation between Irish authorities pursuing Kinahan and police in Dubai – with police from the Gulf state visiting Ireland this week.

Mr. Montalvo is suing Kinahan and MTK on behalf of U.S. boxing promoter Moses Heredia, who alleges violations of U.S. anti-crime laws by alleging that MTK illegally poached his fighter Jo Jo Diaz with Kinahan’s drug money.

“Good question,” he said when asked whether Kinahan’s eventual arrest would have any impact on the ongoing legal battle.

“But his arrest is irrelevant… As soon as I have a judgment, I will enforce it against all forfeited assets.

“When you arrest a man, a criminal who is laundering money, two different things happen at the same time.

“One of the things that happens is the criminal aspect focuses on the person going to jail and getting a fine.

“And then there’s also a civil seizure at the same time, and that happens at the same time, but it’s separate from the criminal process.

“So when you talk about his arrest, that’s a problem. But if they believe that the proceeds (his money) are dirty, then they confiscate it and if it is not challenged, they are considered forfeited and become state property.

“And if you are a victim, you can request the recovery of these assets.

“In our case, we claimed RICO (violations of the US Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act).

“And that would make us a victim of his criminal activities and allow him to pursue the recovery of any civil seizure.”

“We already know he committed a crime in Dubai because he committed identity fraud there – he used a false passport.”

“And since it’s not just about Kinahan, MTK is also involved here – so we can collect money from all the defendants.

“We can track their assets not only in the United States but also in Dubai and Dublin. We are not limited to the United States.”

Mafia boss Daniel Kinahan

In the latest update to the case led by Mr. Montalvo, the district court in California ordered last week that damages assessment in the case must be completed by February 29 and the requested damages must be presented by March 21.

Efforts to secure Kinahan’s arrest and extradition to Ireland intensified this week when senior Dubai police officers met Garda Commissioner Drew Harris, before another meeting with the police’s Drugs and Organized Crime Bureau.

Mr Harris said on Tuesday that Dubai police had already provided “great assistance” in their “ongoing investigations into transnational organized crime”.

The support of this delegation “will further advance this cooperation,” he said.

The visit comes a day after Justice Minister Helen McEntee discussed the possibility of a bilateral extradition treaty with her UAE counterpart.
