Default Chess Patron Arrested

The money used to finance the 1992 Fischer-Spassky Match had been
reaped by Jezdimir Vasiljevic, better known at home as Boss Jezda, in
a Ponzi-type scheme derived as the result of UN Sanctions against
Yugoslavia.

The $3.5 million in Gold Bars held by a Bank in Iceland for the
Fischer Estate are part of the profits from that scheme.

Jezdimir Vasiljevic has been a fugitive from justice since shortly
after the Fischer-Spassky Match but now he has been arrested in the
Netherlands and deported to Serbia.
