PODCAST #047 - BLACK CUBE INTELLIGENCE 2
Black Cube is a private intelligence agency that is infamous for going after people and companies using subvert methods. The company based in London, Tel Aviv, and Madrid was founded in 2010 by former Israeli intelligence officers Dan Zorella and Avi Yanus. Its employees include former members of Israeli intelligence units like Mossad. Black Cube poses as a well-meaning organization but acts like a mercenary and isn’t bound by morals or integrity.
Their tactics accumulate several international controversies, and they continue to function with impunity. In Romania, two employees were convicted of criminal charges involving harassment and hacking. The firm drew widespread condemnation for its surveilling and slander of some of the women accusing Harvey Weinstein. Black Cube was hired by Weinstein’s lawyer to use undercover operatives to discredit Annabella Sciorra, Rose McGowan, and other actresses accusing him. The courts finally convicted the disgraced Hollywood mogul of sexual assault and rape on February 24, 2020.
Black Cube claims to operate successfully in over 70 countries. The firm was recommended to Weinstein by former Israeli PM Ehud Barak, who was involved with Jeffrey Epstein. Efraim Halevy, the former head of Mossad, forms part of the board of Black Cube Intelligence. Black Cube’s strong Mossad associations evidence the seriousness of its operation and explain its lack of respect for other nations.
ON THIS DELIVERY, I focus on the Black Cube chronicles by Ronan Farrow. How a spy working for Harvey Weinstein was exposed after months of infiltration.
