On 3rd June, 2013, Themco received an offer from a lawyer “in contact” with AlertPay/Payza that both sides to this dispute should make undertakings to end the dispute between ThemcoEKF and AlertPay/Payza, with mention of a possible contract.
The undertakings would involve cessation of our campaigns which bring to the notice of the commercial world the past case law involved and the facts about the case won by ThemcoEKF, currently under appeal in Canada. The single, simple undertaking by AlertPay/Payza would be to release the withheld funds to ThemcoEKF together with a sum to cover our legal costs, interest at 6% and an agreed sum to cover compensation for the libellous statements posted on their defamatory website including theft of photo images.
Their lawyer was asked to draw up a contract on 4th June which could be agreed by his “contact” (they still deny a client/lawyer relationship with anyone other than MH Pillars Ltd) and ThemcoEKF which would enable the dispute to be ended. After some procrastination they were put on notice that the contract would need to be available by the end of last week, Friday evening 28th June, 2013.
THE DELAYING ACTION
Not unexpectedly, no contract has been received, just a weak email from the lawyer proposing further negotiations “settling all claims between it (AlertPay, Inc) and your company, Themco EKF”. They were put on notice that the contract would now need to be available immediately, but as this is written, at 5pm (BST) on Monday 1st July, 2013, no further communication has been received.
OUR CAMPAIGNS RESUME
It is therefore necessary to restart the campaigns which had been paused (on legal advice) during the prolonged negotiating period. Needless to say, the Executive Committee has been very busy during this period and many new routes of investigation and action are being progressed.
The campaign has now escalated, and although precise details cannot be placed on a public forum or blog, we can inform our members that this now includes a coordination of the various law enforcement and licensing authorities, with especial emphasis on the “emerging markets”, Bangladesh in particular, in which Mr Patel seems to be paying inordinate interest.
POSSIBLE CRIMINAL PROCEEDINGS
We are also now looking at the criminality of various actions which have been taken by the other parties and their associates. Also, during the past few months, other persons and organisations have contacted us with information about how their funds have been allegedly illegally withheld by AlertPay/Payza and this has now been collated to form the basis of future action.
Once again our thanks go to all those who have contributed so much and who are now to re-engage with the task in hand. Membership of the Executive Committee is now by invitation only, but we are still looking for more expertise. If you have good skills which you feel might be of use please contact support, we are especially looking for further internet ability (SEO etc) and legal or para-legal proficiency.
