The court-appointed trustee in Michael R. Mastro’s massive bankruptcy wants to question Mastro’s son, saying Michael K. Mastro engaged in financial transactions with his father while the senior Mastro was on the lam in France.
As evidence, trustee James Rigby filed a document in bankruptcy court in Seattle Wednesday that he said had been impounded from Michael R. Mastro’s French apartment after his arrest Oct. 24.
The document, signed by Mastro senior, appears to be a receipt for transfer of about $7,800 from a French bank to a corporation owned by Michael K. Mastro and his wife, Robin. The date on the photocopied document is unclear.
Former Seattle real-estate magnate Michael R. Mastro and his wife, Linda, disappeared in June 2011 after failing to comply with a bankruptcy judge’s order to turn over two giant diamond rings valued at $1.4 million.
