CHICAGO (CN) – Two men looted the Krakow Business Park for more than $30 million, and are being held without bail in Poland for it, investors claim in Federal Court. They sued Adam Swiech, Derek Lewicki and a number of U.S. entities allegedly affiliated with or operated with the looted and laundered money, including Orchard Meadow Homes, Lake Ridge Townhomes Corp. and ADR Enterprises.
Plaintiffs Andrew Kozlowski of Florida and Poland and Jan Domanus of Libertyville, Ill, on behalf of investors in the Krakow Business Park, claim the defendants “managed and operated Krakow Business Park Sp. z.o.o. (KBP) through a pattern of fraud and deceit, looting the company and lining their own pockets through a series of illicit activities. Simply put, these defendants have looted KBP, misappropriating tens, if not hundreds, of millions of dollars which they have in turn laundered through a worldwide series of dummy entities – the result being Swiss and U.S. bank accounts in the names of defendants holding more than 20 million euros. The authorities in Poland have imprisoned defendants Adam Swiech and Derek Lewicki without bail as a result of their illegal conduct, and are seeking to arrest and incarcerate Richard Swiech as well. Plaintiffs seek to recover funds that they invested in KBP, and seek to recover on behalf of KBP and its shareholders for the wrongful conduct described in the complaint. Damages easily total hundreds of millions of dollars.”
Defendants include Richard Swiech and his wife, Bozena Sanecka-Swiech, of Mundelein, Ill.; Derek Lewicki and his wife, Catherine Schubert-Lewicki, of Hawthorn Woods, Ill.; Adam Swiech, Richard Swiech’s brother, and his wife, Alicja Gosteck Swiech; Lake Ridge Townhomes and Orchard Meadows Homes, Nevada LLCs doing business in Illinois and managed by Adam Swiech; Spectrum Company Ltd., a “nonexistent corporation” that putatively operates out of the Lewickis’ condo in Des Plaines, Ill.; and ADR Enterprises, a Nevada corporation allegedly based in Las Vegas, owned and operated by Adam Swiech.
Plaintiffs are represented by Much Shelist and Segel & Segel.
