Amway deceived Indian officials

Your indian Judges must again be congratulated for their insight. They clearly see that all-manner of fake 'direct selling'companies like 'Amway India Enterprises', have been used to run illegal money circulation schemes camouflaged by (effectively) unsaleable products, and//or services. The corporate officers of these counterfeit companies have not only defrauded their recruits, but also the entire Indian people as represented by officials working for the democratically-elected Indian government. That said, the US-based racketeers lurking behind 'Amway India Enterprises' have maliciously set up their international labyrinth of (apparently independent) corporate structures pursuing lawful, and/or unlawful, enterprises, in order to prevent, and/or divert, investigation and isolate themselves from liability. In other words, the corporate officers of 'Amway India Enterprises' have been little more than expendable dupes themselves. If, and when, they are brought before the Indian courts to face criminal charges, they will continue to deny reality and to bleat the same old puerile nonsense being fed to them by their bosses.
In the adult world of quantifiable reality, back in June 1994, obsequious ambassadors (sent by the billionaire bosses of the 'Amway' mob) approached the Indian Union Ministry of Industry (Dept. of Industrial Development) bearing gifts. By steadfastly pretending affinity with officials (who, naturally, wanted to believe that all external investment creates employment), the ambassadors sought an agreement (renewable biannually) which simply paved the way for the creation a privately-controlled, unlimited-liability, commercial company, ‘Amway India Enterprises.’ As a subsidiary (entirely owned by its American parent company), the ambassadors meekly accepted that ‘Amway India Enterprises’ would be forbidden to manufacture or import. The proposed company would be permitted only to use its ‘Proven Multilevel Marketing Business Model’ to sell products sourced from local, independent, Indian manufacturers. Furthermore, ‘Amway India Enterprises’ was obliged to file a separate agreement with the Reserve Bank of India, allowing the proposed subsidiary to transfer capital to, and from, its parent and, thus, act as a de facto, foreign exchange dealer. Consequently, without any real investigation, the Indian Union Ministry of Industry, Secretariat for Industrial Approval (Foreign Collaborations II Section) rubber-stamped the application for the proposed company (within less than two months) on August 26th 1994. Twelve months later, the company was registered after final approval by the Indian Foreign Investment Promotion Board. In this way, America’s contemporary version of the Trojan Horse was dragged unnoticed into India with the assistance of the country’s own ill-informed regulators. However, it lay dormant until May 5th 1998 when a network of regional offices began to be established. Six years later, the destructive contents finally began to spill out. On August 8th 2004, the (apparently safe) original (biannual) agreement was mysteriously altered (at the request of the corporate officers of ‘Amway India Enterprises’) allowing the unregulated manufacture, and/or importation, of ‘Amway’s’ own range of (effectively) unsaleable household, beauty and health products. However, at no stage did Indian officials bother to ask how the so-called ‘Proven Business Model’ could possibly work when ‘Amway’ products were now, self-evidently, many times the price of equivalent (and often superior) merchandise widely-available in traditional Indian retail outlets. Yet, implicit to the modified agreement was the understanding that ‘Amway India Enterprises’ would respect Indian law and recruit non-salaried agents who could earn commission payments from retailing products. Unfortunately, Indian officials were deceived by the agents of a major US-based organized crime group.
