Earlier this month, Clare Bronfman, vice president of Executive Success Programs (ESP), filed a criminal complaint against Sarah Edmondson with the Vancouver Police Department.
Miss Bronfman alleged Miss Edmondson acted with mischief, and committed theft, and fraud. Miss Edmondson was the former head of the ESP center in Vancouver.
Miss Edmondson may have prevented women from being recruited into a woman’s group headed by Allison Mack, called Dominance Over Submissives (DOS).
Miss Bronfman is believed to have told Vancouver Police that irreparable damage could be experienced by her company because of Miss Edmondson’s conduct.
Miss Edmondson, as well as witnesses contacted by Vancouver Police, may have revealed that a number of crimes have been committed by Ms. Bronfman and other members of ESP in Canada.
The Vancouver Police Department is led by Chief Constable Adam Palmer. Criminal investigations are conducted under the supervision of Deputy Chief Constable Laurence Rankin.
In the past, Miss Bronfman has offered to provide computer experts, private investigators and attorneys, all at her expense, to gather evidence against targets she wanted charged criminally. New York State Police have accepted her assistance, as did Albany County District Attorney P. David Soares.
Based on what they have learened, it is not known if Vancouver Police will conduct its own independent investigation. Additional manpower may be needed.
Rather than accept help from Miss Bronfman’s team, Vancouver Police may get assistance into suspected criminality from official resources.
The Vancouver Police are part of the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit – British Columbia. Its purpose is to provide support and investigation into complex and diverse criminal activities in British Columbia. The Unit is a part of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police “E” Division.
The Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit has a mandate to expose, investigate, prosecute, dismantle, and disrupt organized criminal enterprises.
Should the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit become involved [if they are not already]. it will signal that the investigation has veered away from Miss Edmondson toward the leaders of DOS.
As detailed in Frank Report, DOS leaders were allegedly engaged in deceptive and coercive collection of photos, videos and documents from members to give to Miss Bronfman, Miss Mack, and other DOS leaders for the purpose of ensuring silence. Human branding, sleep deprivation, forced under-nourishment and sex on demand schemes are alleged to have been required by Lucas Roberts and women members of DOS.
If the Combined Forces determine that DOS activities meet the elements of fraud, theft, mischief, human trafficking, extortion, blackmail and/or conspiracy, it is expected the targets will be Lyvia Cohen, Crystal Rosenbrooks, Diana Lim, Leah Lim, Pam Arstikaitis, Nicki Clyne, and Lucas Roberts.
Charges may be sought for Miss Bronfman.
Mr. Raniere may be safely out of harm’s way. Reportedly, Miss Mack has made – or is expected to make – a filmed confession stating that Mr. Raniere, whose name is on no documents, had nothing to do with DOS and that he has not participated in any of its blackmail practices.
The policy of the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit – British Columbia is to neither confirm nor deny the existence of an ongoing criminal investigation.
As more information is learned, Frank Report will share as much as possible with its readers. More on this later.
