Readers may be interested to glance at an article published in today's Newcastle Sunday Sun, which reprises the partners' crooked dealings. It's only of very minor interest, however, since it mainly offers more publicity to the attention-greedy Collins than insight into the frauds that he and his partner have perpetrated. We suppose that this local paper is inclined to be just a little indulgent towards 'one of its own.' Better that, than getting a brick through the window, perhaps? This is the link:
In the article, Collins protests that he is actually innocent of what the Official Receiver has found in the course of his investigation and he refers to the long-winded but unconvincing statement in his defence that he sent the Secretary of State. Here is what the Official Receiver wrote to us this Friday, 6th September:
"In giving the bankruptcy undertakings, Liam Collins and David Bone Jr signed that they did not dispute the areas of misconduct that the Official Receiver had made against them. As you rightly say, if they had wished to dispute the matters, the forum for this would have been the Court."
They're wriggling on the hook.
