Owner of plane carrying Jenni Rivera linked to troubled businessman
(CNN) "Anaboliset Aineet" Two civil lawsuits against the "Anabolika Definition" company that owns the private jet that crashed Sunday in northern Mexico presumably killing music star Jenni Rivera accuse the firm of lying about its links to a businessman convicted of falsifying maintenance records.
Insurance firms QBE and Commerce Industry Insurance Company filed suits this year seeking to rescind its contracts with aviation company Starwood Management because of alleged falsehoods.
In short, the insurance companies claim that Starwood lied in its application for coverage about the history of the planes being insured and about the true owner of the company.
Starwood is the owner of the Comprar Levitra Learjet that crashed Sunday in "Oxandrolone Powder India" Mexico, most likely killing Rivera, who has not been found. DNA tests are currently being conducted to confirm the identities of the remains found at the crash site.
Rivera was a Mexican American star with a rising cross border appeal. She sang traditional Mexican ballads and was nominated for a Latin Grammy Award in 2002 in the category of Banda Album. lawsuits against Starwood focus on the man who signed the insurance paperwork on its behalf, Ed Nunez. Nunez full name, the insurance companies claim, is Christian Edward Esquino Nunez, a businessman with a criminal record that includes falsifying airplane records.
The registered owner of Starwood, Norma Gonzalez, or her representatives were not immediately available.
In an unrelated lawsuit, Starwood admits that the company gave power of attorney to Ed Nunez to sign documents but denies that the man has any ownership or management role in the company. The sole member of Starwood is Norma Gonzalez, the court document states.
The pair of lawsuits from the insurance companies, however, tell another story.
The QBE lawsuit claims that Ed Nunez, also known as Christian Esquino, is the ego of Starwood, and that he is tied to the operations, assets and ownership of the firm in a way that makes him Deca Durabolin And Test Cypionate Cycle from the company.
The convicted businessman history may be troublesome to observers of Sunday crash.
Additional court records reviewed by CNN show that under the name Eduardo Nunez, the businessman was indicted by a federal grand jury in 2002 of falsifying logbooks to obtain airworthiness certificates from the Federal Aviation Administration. He pleaded guilty.

He sold those planes at a higher price, according to court records.
The Learjet in which Rivera was traveling, built in 1969, was not one of the aircraft cited in any of the legal action, records indicate.
Another case filed against Esquino in 1993 resulted in a conviction for concealment from the IRS of the existence, source and transfer of cash for which he was sentenced to five years Dianabol Free Trial in prison.
According to court documents obtained by CNN, Esquino has a criminal record dating to 1991, when he pleaded guilty to one count of and abetting a false loan application. He was then sentenced to three years on probation.
In April 1991, Esquino was arrested and subsequently indicted on one count of to possess with intent to distribute cocaine, according to Deca Durabolin Subcutaneous court records. He pleaded guilty.
The insurance companies claim that they would not have provided coverage for Starwood if they had known about such a criminal history. They allege that Esquino simply went by the name Nunez instead and failed to report his past.
