S.E.C. Acts on Suspicious Heinz Trading
Source: New York Times

In the filing made in Federal District Curt in Manhattan, the Securities and Exchange Commission took aim at a Zurich-based trading account that reaped $1.7 million in gains. The emergency action against anonymous traders, the S.E.C. said on Friday, will prevent the suspects from hiding their winnings or moving the money to another account.
