|Did Allen Stanford's local employees try to cover up his crime?|
The February 16 suit contained an order forbidding the destruction of any documents.
By Feb. 23, Raffanello and Perraud allegedly had made arrangements for a commercial shredding company to destroy documents at the Fort Lauderdale office. A 95-gallon bin full of paper was hauled out to the shredding company's truck two days later, prosecutors said in a revamped four-count indictment filed Dec. 21.That comes from this Bloomberg article about the case. Defense attorneys for Raffanello and Perraud maintain that the shredding was routine and that the order prohibiting document disposal was flawed.
