About two dozen investigators from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office raided the offices of Newsweek and its parent company, IBT Media, on Thursday.
IBT Media was co-founded by Jonathan Davis and Etienne Uzac. The IRS placed a $1.2 million federal tax lien against Uzac in December 2017.
The agents were said to be photographing servers in the offices, but not downloading any files at the offices at 7 Hanover Square, according to sources.
They appeared to be photographing the serial numbers on the machines, said a source.
In the past, IBT has been linked to a Christian church founded by Korean-American evangelist David Jang and Olivet University, a university in California that Jang’s followers founded.
The IRS had not responded to a call by press time. The Manhattan DA declined to comment.
