Allegation

In 2017, a website published the text of letter from Edward Manfredonia, Financial Reporter, dated 11 July 2011. The text "will detail the past criminal activity of Sunny Sheu[sic.]- criminal activity, which is known to Milton Allimadi, but which criminal activity Allimadi has chosen to ignore. In Allimadi’s series of articles there were several salient facts about Shue (Sheu) that Allimadi neglected to mention." He misspells the name of Sunny Sheu throughout the claim that "Shue had earned millions of dollars in export-import. And Shue (Sheu) had not paid taxes on this income."[3]
