It’s actually a spokesman of the victim in the $20 million fraud case involving Katonah pianist and composer Roger Davidson, who prosecutors say was bilked out of $20 million by Chappaqua grifters Vickram Bedi and Helga Ingvarsdottir over a six-year period through an elaborate scheme of lies and nefarious story lines involving international intrigue.
Davidson’s new spokesman, Christopher Cooper, responded today to counterallegations that Bedi made after his arraignment Tuesday that he never deceived Davidson, who is heir to an oil fortune, and that Davidson concocted the plots involving foreign nationals hacking into his computer out of paranoia. Cooper, in essence, said Bedi’s version was bunk.
“Roger Davidson has a single priority: to ensure that Vickram Bedi is held responsible for their crimes he committed and is punished to the extent that the law allows. The Davidson’s family maintains their faith that the truthful accounting of the events surrounding this case will emerge in the only venue that matters: a court of law.”
Davidson also has a civil case against Bedi that’s pending before acting state Supreme Court Justice Gerald Loehr. Bedi’s criminal case is before county Judge Barbara Zambelli.
