GAME OVER: Van Krikorian and Global Gold Corp.

It's time to say goodbye to Global Gold Corp (pink: GBGD) and its sketchy President, Van Krikorian.
After years of defrauding employees and suppliers in the Republic of Armenia out of hundreds of thousands of dollars, swindling joint venture partners out of over US$12MM, and partially embezzling and money laundering these proceeds, its time to say goodbye to Global Gold Corp (pink: GBGD) and its President, CEO, Chairman, Director and Corporate Counsel, Van Krikorian.
On December 4, 2017, GBGD through the fraudulent actions of its President, Mr. Van Krikorian along with the complicit support of its Board of Directors, transferred all of GBGD's assets and claims to its officers and directors, consolidated its shares 251:1, ceased becoming a reporting issuer, and went dark, leaving behind US$20,917,023 in liabilities, broken promises. dreams and a trail of fraud.
I am sure that this tale is not over.  With the assets of GBGD in the hands of Van Krikorian and his accomplices, the…

The FRAUD at GBGD by VAN KRIKORIAN Continues

Global Gold Corp (PINK:GBGD)is $20,917,023 in debt, so what does Mr. Van Krikorian, the President, CEO and Director of the Company do? He conspires with his fellow directors and officers of the company to reclassify $6,463,255 of that debt, which is owed to them, as secured promissory notes, to the detriment of its other creditors and secured creditors.
Van Krikorian announced on November 1, 2017, in the company's June 30, 2017, 10-Q report, that these secured promissory notes were issued on July 1, 2017, and interest and principal were due on September 1, 2017. What was the security granted to Mssrs Van Krikorian, Drury Gallagher, Ian Hague, Lester Ceasar and Jan Dulman? Everything. And now these newly issued secured promissory notes are in DEFAULT.


These officers and directors have been involved with the Company almost from the beginning where the stock climbed to a high of $3.80 in May 2006 and now rests on its deathbed at $0.015.
The strange thing about this transaction is th…

Were GBGD's subsidiaries in Armenia declared Bankrupt?

I received a call today from my contact in Armenia confirming that this is actually the case. Not only that a declaration of bankruptcy was issued in April against all GBGD subsidiaries, but that a court appointed liquidator has been named too.

It is a holiday on Monday in Armenia and I expect to get actual court case numbers and other information by mid week.

Nevertheless, in typical Van Krikorian fashion The only reference to this potential bankruptcy was announced in the 10-K, which was filed on May 2, 2016.  No mention of the actual bankruptcy in subsequent events, and no mention of bankruptcy claims ever filed against GBGD's subsidiaries in Armenia, ever.

Mr. Krikorian discloses the following in the last 10-K:

Clear and Apparent Fraud at GBGD and Toukhmanuk Gold Mine

On July 5, 2013, GBGD and Mr. Van Krikorian (President and CEO) signed a deal with Linne Mining to act as the CONTRACT MINER for the development of its Toukhmanuk Gold Mine, in Armenia.
By November 2015, Van Krikorian announced in its SEC quarterly filings (10-Q), that the Toukhmanuk project was delayed because the contract miner "requested" to be relieved of its obligations under the mining contractagreement.

To this date, Van Krikorian has failed to post a copy of Linne Mining's letter or provide any clarification to investors, why Linne Mining requested to be "relieved" of it obligations. 

Three months later, the reason for Linne Mining's actions have started to become crystal clear. Linne has been swindled by Van Krikorian and GBGD. There is no gold worth mining at the Toukhmanuk Gold Mine. Here is the proof.

Two documents, which were prepared for Linne Mining, surfaced on the web last week. These two documents outline that the database provided by GBGD and…
