Greg Lindberg responds to new Justice Department allegations against Christopher Herwig
Largest Policyholder Says These False Claims Don’t Help Them
DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, December 23, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Greg Lindberg responded today to false allegations about him that were included in the Justice Department’s criminal filing against Christopher Herwig (U.S. vs. Christopher Herwig, Case No. 3:22-cr-314-MOC, filed on Monday, December 19, and unsealed today.)
“I invested over $500 million in my insurance companies. I never took a penny of dividends. The allegation that I somehow defrauded them while investing $500 million in them and taking no dividends is entirely absurd," said Lindberg.
"I also hired over 100 investment professionals, lawyers, and accountants and spent tens of millions of dollars on their compensation to ensure that insurance reserves were invested according to the affiliate loan compliance plan that I personally drafted,” said Lindberg.
This detailed affiliate loan compliance plan mandated that the insurance investment team follow a whole series of processes to comply with the laws and regulations governing these loans, said Lindberg.
“In this compliance plan I appointed six individuals to the clearly defined Investment Compliance Department and Insurance Investment Underwriting Team. I was not one of those individuals,” said Lindberg.
“The government is claiming that the transactions were not disclosed, yet we supplied emails showing the transactions were disclosed to virtually everyone on the management team of the North Carolina insurers, including the Chairman of the Board of the management company,” said Lindberg spokesperson Susan Estrich.
“This case is simply to attempt to pressure Greg Lindberg and paint a negative picture of him in the press,” Estrich said. “There was no loss to anyone.”
Lindberg said that during his 633 days in prison, he “saw this movie” hundreds of times. “The government makes all kinds of false allegations to try to get you to settle. They use high pressure tactics to try to roll over defendants and get them to admit things they never did. It’s bullying pure and simple,” Lindberg said.
“This entire case is driven by politically motivated animus,” Lindberg continued. “This case has nothing to do with justice or protecting policyholders. In fact, our largest policyholder has said that prosecution of this case does not help them. It’s just one more example of the prosecution machine that faces any American who is unlucky enough to be in the cross hairs of the government.”
