The Pilton-Moldova Connection

The biggest bank robbery in European history?  $1 billion nicked from three Moldovan banks?  With the involvement of limited partnerships based in an Edinburgh housing scheme (not usually noted as a centre of financial expertise)?

The BBC has part of the story:
According to the Kroll report, based on Moldovan National Bank records, the equivalent of $498m in loans was transferred to three Scottish limited partnerships.
All have partners registered in offshore tax-havens, and all allegedly deposited the money in a single bank in Latvia.
Meanwhile the collection rights to those loans - and to others made to companies registered in Northern Ireland and Hong Kong - are said by Kroll to have been acquired by another Scottish limited partnership - Fortuna United LP.
The total sum owed to Fortuna United is $1bn - equivalent to the complete proceeds of the alleged Moldovan bank fraud.
But, surprisingly, the partnership shares an address with 420 other companies - including 258 other limited partnerships - at a flat in Pilton, the district of north Edinburgh famous as the setting for "Trainspotting", the novel about heroin addicts.
Extraordinary stuff.  Where can I get hold of the movie rights?
