immediate family in the United States and owns no real property here. Although the extent of defendant's financial resources are not known with certainty, it is known that he owns at least seven businesses and has declared bringing over one and one half million dollars into this country since 1979. While defendant owns real property in The Netherlands, it is heavily encumbered and there no evidence of any method by which it could be posted as bail. Defendant's several business trips to the United States do not constitute a significant tie to this country as defendant is capable of conducting business within the United States while in another country. Defendant is an international traveler and businessman with contacts worldwide. If he were to flee, the United States could not compel The Netherlands to extradite him.
Finally, the source of defendant's bond money is unknown and, thus, the bond provides inadequate assurance that defendant will appear. Furthermore, defendant's net worth is not known with certainty and, thus, the amount of bail necessary to assure his appearance is also unknown.
In sum, defendant presents a serious risk of flight because he has no ties with the United States apart from the financial tie which would be created if he were released on bail. However, because the source of defendant's bond money and the amount of defendant's net worth are presently unknown, I am unable to conclude that a bond could reasonably assure defendant's appearance. If defendant is able to provide sufficient documentation as to both of these matters, I will reconsider the question as to whether a bond could reasonably assure the defendant's appearance at trial.
An order follows.
AND NOW, this 25th day of November, 1985, it is ordered as follows:
1. The defendant shall be committed to the custody of the Attorney General for detention in a corrections facility where he may receive adequate treatment for his diabetic condition and where he may be held separate, to the extent practicable, from persons awaiting or serving sentences or being detained pending appeal.
2. The defendant shall have reasonable opportunity for private consultation with counsel.
3. On order of a court of the United States or on request of an attorney for the government, the person in charge of the corrections facility in which the defendant is confined shall deliver the defendant to a United States marshal for the purpose of an appearance in connection with a court proceeding.
