The information recently obtained by WMR confirms our first report on March 9, 2007, concerning Dowiyogo's suspicious death:
"Our sources in Asia report that Dowiyogo was placed under tremendous pressure by Bush administration officials. Dowiyogo had tried to kick out the Russian-Israeli Mafia from his country. The mobsters had used the nation's lax tax and banking laws to set up shop to launder ill-gotten gains from illegal activities, including drug and weapons smuggling, online gambling, online child pornography, and tax evasion. The Bush administration had been infiltrated by mobsters and their allies, including fugitive Marc Rich's attorney, Irving Lewis Libby, who became Dick Cheney's Chief of Staff."
Just a few weeks before his death while under the protection of the U.S. Secret Service, the agency was transferred from the Department of Treasury to the new Department of Homeland Security.
Dowiyogo, who was 57, was in Washington to discuss with Bush administration officials the closing down of the Russian-Israeli Mafia financial pipeline that ran through his small island nation. Dowiyogo signed a secret agreement concerning money laundering in Washington on February 27.
WMR's latest information is that Dowiyogo collapsed after having dinner. After the president collapsed, he was rushed to George Washington Hospital and died after 11 hours of heart surgery failed to revive him.
The Australian newspaper reported on March 11, 2003, that a long-time Melbourne friend of Dowiyogo, Helen Bogdan, said, "he [Dowiyogo] would never have gone to Washington if they thought this was going to happen." Dowiyogo reportedly had detailed knowledge of Russian Israeli mafia money and properties in Australia. In March 2001, the Russian Central Bank stated that US$70 billion had been laundered through 400 offshore banks registered in Nauru by the Russian-Israeli mafia.
U.S. State Department mouthpiece Richard Boucher was quick with a "deepest condolence" message: "The United States expresses its deepest condolences to the people of Nauru and to the family of Bernard Dowiyogo on the passing of the president of Nauru," Boucher said at the State Department, just a few blocks away from the hospital where Dowiyogo died.
Dowiyogo was considered one of the South Pacific's strongest opponents to U.S. Navy nuclear ship patrols in the region and French nuclear testing in French Polynesia. It was ironic that his body was flown on a U.S. Air Force plane from Hickam Air Force Base in Hawaii to Nauru. It was also suspicious that Dowiyogo's funeral was postponed in Nauru because of unexplained "delays" encountered in getting the president's body back to Nauru from Washington.
Just a few weeks after Dowiyogo died, Dowiyogo's successor as President, Derog Gioura, 71, a Dowiyogo political ally, suffered a heart attack and was rushed to an Australian hospital from the 8-square mile island state. Later reports stated that Gioura suffered a stroke. A few weeks later, Gioura said he was surprised to learn that the Bush administration had claimed that six suspected "terrorists," including two members of "Al Qaeda" had been arrested in Southeast Asia carrying Nauruan passports.
Dowiyogo's wife, Christina, who was at his side when he died in Washington, was reported on March 20, 2008, to have "died overnight."
