In the Matter of Anastasios P. “Tommy” Belesis
Admin. Proc. File No. 3-18088
On August 1, 2017, the Commission instituted and settled administrative and cease-and-desist proceedings (the “Order”) against Anastasios P. “Tommy” Belesis (the “Respondent”). In the Order, the Commission found that between August 21, 2012 and October 5, 2012, the Respondent violated the anti-fraud and securities registration provisions of the federal securities laws in connection with the purchasing and selling of the common stock of Liberty Silver Corp. The Commission ordered, and the Respondent has paid $434,628.40 in disgorgement, $64,266.86 in prejudgment interest, and a $434,628.40 civil money penalty. The Commission also created a Fair Fund (the “Fair Fund”), so the penalty, along with the disgorgement and prejudgment interest, can be distributed to investors harmed by the Respondent’s conduct. See the Commission’s Order: Release No. 33-10395.
On June 24, 2019, the Commission issued an order appointing Miller Kaplan Arase LLP as the Tax Administrator of the Fair Fund. See the Commission’s Order: Release No. 34-86181.
