LEXA.NL Founder Rob Koster and Hugo Sluimer hired Criminal defence attorney as Illegal Usurious Loans discovered
IN THE INTEREST OF THE PUBLIC
In a shocking revelation, loan agreements presented to the Miami Dade court by Public figure Hugo Sluimer and Lexa.nl founder Rob Koster (Public figure) have been found to be usurious and criminally usurious. These agreements contained exorbitant interest rates, reaching an astronomical 45% per year. In Florida, such rates are not only considered illegal but are also deemed criminal offenses.
According to Florida law, the maximum legal interest rate stands at 17%. However, Sluimer and Koster, both from Woerden, the Netherlands, appeared to be seeking an unjustifiably large compounding payout eventhough they knew the principle had been paid in full. The true nature of these usurious agreements was not immediately apparent, but thanks to the expertise of a forensic accountant, their unlawfulness was swiftly uncovered and brought to the attention of the Honorable Judge. Several days later Rob Koster and Hugo Sluimer hired a criminal attorney who was added to the case but the duo never addressed the criminal usury as if it did not exist.
It is important to note that in Florida, if loans are deemed usurious, they cannot be legally collected upon. However, Sluimer and Koster attempted to pursue collection regardless of this legal impediment. In addition, the duo refused to provide receipts or any form of accounting, which constitutes a violation of §687.08, Fla. Stat. Had Sluimer and Koster complied with the law and furnished the necessary receipts and statements, the illegal nature of the agreements would have been exposed right away. The refusal to provide such documentation warrants the forfeiture of all interest accrued on the principal of the loans according to Florida law.
HUGO SLUIMER USURY: SOURCE: SUBMITTED 06/23/2021 TO MIAMI DADE COURT RECORDS
ROB KOSTER USURY:
On 06/28/21, or 5 days after the submission of this motion to dismiss (criminal usury) above, Koster and Sluimer added a high profile criminal defence attorney to its council.
As per Florida statutes, the penalty for usury is twice the amount of interest reserved, taken, or extracted. Consequently, Koster and Sluimer may be required to repay any interest received or reserved for refusing to provide receipts, along with an additional sum equal to twice that amount for engaging in usurious lending. This potential outcome could amount to millions of dollars, and it is possible that the accused individuals may face prosecution in the state of Florida.
In a further display of disregard for the law, Koster and Sluimer extended their transgressions. Under Florida law, to hold a manager personally liable for a debt, it is necessary to demonstrate fraud or wrongdoing, allowing for the “piercing of the corporate veil”. Florida also permits that a plaintiff can write almost anything in a legal complaint, as long as he or she does not know that the information is false.
However, if false information is knowingly included in a legal complaint, it can be classified as malicious prosecution, potentially exposing the accusers to liability for slander. Recently revealed recordings shed light on the deliberate and malicious statements made by Sluimer and Koster in the complaint, suggesting an attempt to tarnish the reputation of the defendants on multiple fronts. In one example, Sluimer claimed to be “Lured” in to invest but he admits himself in the recording that this never happened. Such actions, if proven, could have severe legal consequence and liability for the accused.
During the three-year-long lawsuit, Sluimer lied about his own nationality. He repeatedly claimed to be "a citizen of Monaco," which is a fraudulent statement that further raises questions about the credibility of his assertions.
In conclusion, the case involving Hugo Sluimer and Rob Koster has revealed a troubling web of criminal usury, malicious prosecution, and false claims of Monaco citizenship. The discovery of usurious loan agreements, with interest rates far exceeding the legal limit, exposed the duo's flagrant disregard for Florida's usury laws. Their attempts to collect on these illegal loans, coupled with the refusal to provide receipts or any form of accounting, further underscore their disregard for legal obligations.
The shocking recordings (Sluimer) that recently came to light have added another layer to this already complex case. These recordings not only confirm the deliberate and malicious statements made by Sluimer and Koster but also suggest a calculated effort to ruin reputations. Such malicious prosecution, if proven, carries significant legal consequences, including potential liability for slander.
Moreover, the false claim of Monaco citizenship made by Sluimer throughout the proceedings raises serious questions about the credibility and integrity of his assertions. This false representation, when combined with the other illicit activities uncovered in this case, further calls into question the motives and actions of Sluimer and Koster.
The outcome of this story will not only determine the fate of Sluimer and Koster but will also point out the importance of why laws are necessary. Florida's usury laws exist to protect individuals from exploitative illegal lending practices, and the discovery and prosecution of cases like this highlight the state's commitment to upholding these vital safeguards.
Sluimer and Koster must reckon with the potential consequences of their actions. The implications of this case reach beyond the individuals involved, serving as a reminder that illegal and unethical practices will not go unnoticed or unpunished.
