για να προστατεύσουν τους πιστούς φίλους(χρηματοδότες) του Madoff'..:-D
Prosecutors have not charged him with knowing about the $50 billion Ponzi scheme, in fact Friehing himself had an account with Madoff valued at over $500,000, according to the complaint, but prosecutors say that the accountant deceived investors by falsely certifying that he had audited the financial statements of Madoff's investment firm. "Mr. Friehling's deception helped foster the illusion that Mr. Madoff legitimately invested his clients money," said acting United States Attorney Lev Dassin, of the Southern District of New York where the charges were filed.Click here to read the document.

Kent State University's Lyman L. Lemnitzer Center for NATO and European Union Studies devotes its activities to the expansion and dissemination of scholarly knowledge about NATO, the European Union, and related European American issues. The Center also provides academic advising for the North Atlantic Security Studies minor/certificate program, support for a course on NATO and coordinates participation by Kent State University students in the National Model NATO Conference. More recently, the Center has become an Associate of the Parallel History Project on NATO and the Warsaw Pact (PHP).
The Center was originally established in 1979 to provide an institutional setting for the academic examination of the historical, political, economic, and military experiences of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. In April 1982 the Center was formally named after a distinguished participant in the affairs of the Atlantic Alliance, General Lyman L. Lemnitzer, Supreme Allied Commander, Europe, 1963-69. A decision was made in 1991 to expand the mission of the Center to include an emphasis on the European Community.
Among its activities, the Center sponsors public lectures and conferences that are open to the University community and the general public. Scholarly meetings sponsored or cosponsored by the Lemnitzer Center have resulted in eleven books. The Lemnitzer Center also launched an occasional papers series in 1992 and a conference papers series in 1999. The Center has research associates from Kent and other universities who participate regularly in its scholarly activities and contribute to its publications. Additionally, the Center maintains a corresponding associates category that includes scholars from U.S. and European universities who participate less frequently in its functions.
Within the University the Center encourages and oversees the introduction of related undergraduate and graduate courses to supplement already established offerings. It is the academic home for and provides advising to the minor/certificate in North Atlantic Security Studies. This is a twenty-four hour interdisciplinary minor with courses in economics, geography, history and political science. The Center also houses a small library of specialized holdings on NATO and the European Union.
The director of the Lemnitzer Center is S. Victor Papacosma, professor of history. Lawrence S. Kaplan, director emeritus, maintains an active involvement in the center's activities. Mark R. Rubin, associate professor of modern and classical languages and director of Kent State University's Center for International and Comparative Programs, serves as associate director. For further information about the Center, please contact us. Thank you.
