Amr (Anthony) Elgindy, a short selling fraudster who conducted many of his trades through Vancouver-based Global Securities Corp., deserves “a very substantial term of imprisonment,” according to Assistant United States Attorney John Nathanson. In fact, the U.S. government thinks Mr. Elgindy should be locked up for life.
