Luxembourg Funds Halt Redemptions but the list in not exhaustive

Bloomberg has reported that Investments with Bernard Madoff have forced Luxembourg funds and sub funds to suspend redemptions.

List of Luxembourg-registered sub-funds and funds that have suspended their net asset valuations, the subscription and
redemptions of their shares since the Madoff fraud:

The funds are Source: Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier in an e-mail to Bloomberg News) :
*U.S. Absolute Return of Herald (Lux)
*U.S. Equity Plus of Luxembourg Investment Fund
*American Selection of Luxalpha Sicav
*Arbitrage of Norvest
*Balanced sub-fund, Growth sub-fund et Xtra Alternative
Investments Sub-fund of GLOBAL FUND SELECTION Sicav
*Global One of Carat (Lux) Sicav
*LRI Invest Alpha Stable EUR
*BG Global Classic, BG Global Dynamic, BG Global Challenge, BG
Global Balance, BG Global Discovery, BG Stable Value of BG
Umbrella Fund
*One (c) of the fund MARS
*Best Selection of Pareturn

I know that there may other funds that are not on the list like a typical Luxembourg-made situation :

X Bermuda as custodian and X Luxembourg as sub- custodian, X being the name of the Bank in the prospectus.
"X Bermuda" is quoted 11 times "X Luxembourg" is quoted 5 times despite they are only sub-custodians.
"Luxembourg" is quoted ...25 times and "Bermuda" 58 times.

The prospectus was changed early 2000 to add X Luxembourg and the word Luxembourg to seduce European investors and have a foot in Europe. X Luxembourg would have given the money to Madoff. A big four is the auditor.

The prospectus specifies that the FUND is a British Virgin Islands business company pursuant to the BVI Business Companies Act, 2004.
