Amway is organized crime?

According to G Robert Blakey's report, anyway. Of course, Blakey is an expert working for the plaintiffs in P&G v. Amway (Case H-972384, S D Texas, Houston Division), so his reports might be, well, biased. :shock:

Sorry, but the link is broken - not a 404 error, just a nothing page. :(

The chairman and CEO of Amway India, William S Pinckney, was placed under arrest on Tuesday in connection with a complaint against the multilevel marketing firm.

Andhra Pradesh Police said the CEO was apprehended on Monday and was brought in on a warrant. The arrest was based on a complaint alleging unethical circulation of money through Amway's operations.
