Be that as is may, I also guarantee that there is WAY more to that story.

That may be so but nobody went to jail over that.

Nothing in the news. Probably an ongoing investigation. What could they possibly be looking for?

The employees who were onsite at the time are still pretty shaken up over this situation.

Having a gun pointed in your face after all that has happened in recent times would definitely be very scary.

Nothing on any websites yet. ROUNDBOY the reporter with the GOLD post!
Dayum😯-glad to hear nobody got shot and sorry to elskip for the loss of work and income- how shitty they just let you go like that, but fuck Ďem onward and upward sir betcha your rep soon finds you employed again.

I think it's a stretch to think that a raid on Ducati NA could escalate to all of Ducati no longer existing. Even if it's a huge tax issue and tons of people in the US go to jail, Im not worried at all that actual Ducati which is part of a huge multinational corporation will cease to exist.

I can see a smart lawyer filing under that as he was fired for reporting on a law enforcement operation against the Company.

Yeah, Ducati NA Inc. is independent business from Ducati Holdings SpA. One or the other can disappear and would not affect other. Other than NA needing to find another manufacturer to import.

Maybe Ducati NA was "importing" other goods into U.S. along with bikes. Maybe undeclared "coffee" or other goods? Who knows...

If entire board of Ducati NA gets tossed in prison and corp dissolved, I'm sure other importers & dealers would step in to fulfill demand.
