This is a serious and confidential situation. Please do not

This is a serious and confidential situation. Please do not post any portion of this message online. I am seeking advice on what to do for my dear friend, who has been detained for over 137 days! And I am truly afraid he may die there. I've been sending money via Western Union to government officials (so I'm told): Africa IMF, London IMF, US IMF, US Customs and Border Protection, for over approx $27,000 USD. Lately, I insisted on a written document from US IMF stating what the fine was for and recently a US Judge ruled that he could be released if I paid HALF of the latest bail fine of $4,550 (8/19/16) ... yet only to have his release ruling overrode by a "director". The detainee is a very successful CEO of a construction company in Texas. He invested all his liquid assets into a project in South Africa. This is his 1st violation but it's a serious offense: "high value check, undeclared B/E Number-5002811".He was flying home to deposit this large payment for construction work completed for the So African government, but he did not declare it. I understand he did this because he (we!) didn't have immediate funds left to pay the never ending SA taxes and clearance fees. Beginning 4/24/16 Johannesburg airport the So Africa Customs Overstay Fee of $2,578 – then; SA IMF needed cash of $1,640 for High Court Check clearance letter to board his flight. Now he lands in London, and it starts all over … detained London Immigration Removal Centre - IRC for the SAME CHECK and MORE clearance FINES, for which I personally paid all. Then to make it to his home airport in San Antonio, Texas for the check clearance fees, FDIC review, and bail fines to continue. I paid out in July the sum of $10,479 to US IMF.The detainee is a middle-aged man and just suffered his second heart attack last week while in his cell. Although he has given my name and phone # as his emergency contact, I am still never contacted.He's in an undisclosed hospital in Texas. He's been there 6+ days now as they stabilize his blood pressure and run tests. His 1st heart attack was in So Africa 3/7/16 where he was hospitalized at MediClinic for 37 days. I had to come up with the cash for his release. I made sure he got copies of his SA medical records and carried it with him and already showed it to the Customs staff so they're aware of his serious health problem.He was able to call me yesterday from his personal cell and sounded stronger. At the end of our conversation he asked me to write his contact in Allianz Bank to process a document to now make me his full beneficiary in case he dies. His only living close relative is his brother in Spain who has suffered a stroke and is unable to care for himself for which my friend helps support him and his family. The detainee is a widower with a minor daughter, who's only 11 years old, and still in South Africa. His Site Engineer and wife are caring for her, but he has not had any contact from them for over 3 weeks! His site engineer and crew haven't been paid for any of their work because this check can't get cashed!!He is afraid if I file an online complaint with Homeland that it will further hinder his release. He states he has told Customs about his daughter being alone without family in So Africa. The detainee is a Spanish citizen with a valid US work visa and driver's license, for which the authorities have long ago verified. His solution is to continue to pay and pray. I'm out of funds and in-debt. I paid San Antonio IMF a total of $10,479 cash just in July. I have my bank wire and Western Union receipts for all cash sent. I don't even trust my own government now. If it matters, I'm an American citizen. Any legal advice would be appreciated, thank-you.

There is a lady in Great Britian that has visited the U.S.

there is a young lady in Great Britian that has visited the U.S. (Texas) many many times on a travel visa. she recently visited me in an interview for a job position here in Wichita Falls, Texas. we are both working on the documents now for her work visa. I have the forms filled out and signed from her as well as my signature. I think my responsibility is to submit them along with a fee to the labor board. I am not sure if there is an office located here in Wichita Falls, Texas or whether i need to submit them via online.
