Belgian court convicts Mehran Keshe and wife for fraud
The Iranian man and founder of the organization known as the Keshe Foundation, who claims to be a nuclear physicist and sells his plasma products which he says can cure HIV/AIDS, diabetes and other diseases, Mehran Tavakoli Keshe has been convicted of fraud and given a suspended sentence by a Belgian court. His wife, Carolina De Roos was also sentenced by the same court that sat in the Belgian city of Kortrijk, according to news sources out of Belgium yesterday, August 9, 2017.
Keshe was given an 18 months sentence and the wife 12 months. The two currently live in Italy.
The couple was charged for deceiving Belgian citizens that they can be healed of various ailments when they drink water from special thermos bottles and inhale air through an inhaler which Keshe sells.
The reports indicate that Keshe’s claims to heal with his plasma water came to the attention of the country’s medical regulatory authorities in 2012. The couple was also cited for practicing medicine illegally in Belgium.
Court investigations revealed that Keshe and his wife were scammers and confiscated an amount of €15,000 which it said was made from the fraudulent sale of the plasma water.
The news reports said eight victims of the couple were identified in areas among others in Roeselare, Meulebeke, Waregem, Anzegem and Ninove.
Keshe in Ghana
Meanwhile, a little over a week ago, Keshe was in Ghana to hold a press conference where according to some local news accounts and there are different accounts, he claims he is investing $15 million in scientific technology and he will build the first space launch pad in Africa in Ghana, a claim he made in May 2017 during a conference that he organised in Ghana under the auspices of the Ghana Atomic Energy Commission.
The Commission, however, which signed an MoU with the Keshe Foundation has abrogated the deal on the grounds that Keshe’s claims cannot be scientifically proven.
Another newspaper account says he is investing $750 million to build a plant in Ghana to start producing his range of plasma products.
Other reports say, he will create 3000 jobs for scientists with his plant.
But the Minister for Science and Environment, Prof Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng has questioned Keshe’s credibility and claims of being a nuclear physicist.
Prof. Frimpong-Boateng said after some scrutiny, it was found that the activities Keshe, his predictions and medicinal product purported to cure certain diseases were not genuine.
In response to the Ministers comments, Keshe issued threats, making veiled threats that he knows the Minister was hiding money in Dubai. But the Minister was swift in responding that he has never been to Dubai.
Sources familiar with Keshe’s modus operandi say the only way he responds to his critics is to slander them.
In some of the Keshe Foundation’s live streaming of its leader’s lectures, Keshe makes claims that staff of the Ghana Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) and the Ghana Standards Board use his products and testify to their efficacy, but a check on the FDA website where a list of approved medical and food products are published doesn’t have any product from the Keshe Foundation listed.
Keshe and the 20 Ghanaian scientists
Keshe appears to have some chips under his sleeves in his quest to keep his hold on Ghana. He currently has 20 graduates of the Graduate School of Nuclear Sciences that he has hired to work for him under the now abrogated MoU with the Atomic Commission. Their future is unclear.
The Director-General of the Ghana Atomic Energy Commission, Prof. Benjamin J. B. Nyarko who is currently attending a meeting in Vienna, Austria, told ghanabusinessnews.com on the phone Thursday morning that, the graduates of the school can’t find jobs and they are free to work in the private sector if they can find jobs.
Asked about the future of the 20 graduates working with the Keshe Foundation, he suggested that they should be advised to leave the Foundation.
It does not appear that Ghana has seen the last of Keshe yet.

Iranian health guru turns out to be a regular scammer
An Iranian couple now living in Italy, where they may continue their criminal practices, have been convicted by the judge in Kortrijk because they scolded people from our region on a large scale. The faithful customers believed the man of the couple, Mehran TK, who represented himself as a health guru. They also did not ask questions when the man claimed he could heal them by drinking water from special thermos bottles and inhaling air through an inhaler. Practices came to light when victims complained to the Order of Physicians in 2012. Later, a court investigation began to show that Mehran TK and his wife, Carolina D., were ordinary scammers who illegally practiced medicine. The man got 18 months on probation, his wife 12 months. They also received a prohibition. The court declared forfeit more than 15,000 euros: money that was connected to illegal practices. They made eight victims, among others in Roeselare, Meulebeke, Waregem, Anzegem and Ninove.

Couple convicted of deceiving sick people
An Iranian couple has been convicted of scamming sick people from the region. The man, Mehran TK, presented himself as a health guru and claimed he could heal the patients by allowing them to drink water from special thermos bottles and to breathe air through an inhaler. In 2012, people complained to the Order of Physicians. The conclusion of the parquet was that with the help of his wife Carolina D., who ransacked patients, he used illegal medicine and deceived people. Eight victims were identified from among others in Anzegem, Waregem, Roeselare, Meulebeke and Ninove. The judge followed and condemned TK to a suspended sentence of 18 months and his wife received 12 months on probation. Both were also given a prohibition. In total, the scam brought the couple over 15,000 euros, an amount declared by the court as forfeited. Two victims were bourgeois and they received compensation. Meanwhile, the couple lives in Italy.
As a reminder, here is Keshe’s sarcastic, dirty comment of slander to Belgian police officer Mr. Delannoye, BEFORE he (Keshe) was convicted:
“I ask the judge for 30 months sentence. If he gives me less then I have a problem. Because the more the sentence, the bigger it is, the more I can push everything into the hands of the higher level courts and then we take it to the UN. There should be no one operating on Interpol from Belgium because this shows international fraud by the police and prosecutors. So, I thank you Mr. Delannoye: I have been waiting for this court case to be heard, to be closed. We can speak now because the case is closed. I thank the prosecutor that you will need a prostate prosecuting, because you will be sitting for a long time in prison on your backside! The prostate needs a lot of attention … that’s all you are, you are not a prosecutor! You are a criminal and we were waiting for you to come up.“ – M.T. Keshe
Has anyone ever seen such arrogance? And this comes from a criminal demagogue and cult leader like Keshe. Incredible! Is a giant super-ego à la Trump or Keshe the new norm in this ego-driven society? Then humanity has a long way to go to reach world peace.
