Newsletter 14, Update on Court Decision, Zuckerberg Case
In my last Newsletter, I promised to inform you about what I received from the court today when I was in contact with them.
I received the following message from the person handling the case:
Due to the current workload of the court, it can take up to three months before a decision is made on how the court will handle a case.
My experience has been that it has normally taken no more than two weeks. Now it is a very complicated case and the court obviously has a lot to do, which is why it takes more time than before.
The caseworker told me that she thought that a decision could be made before these three months, and since it has now been almost two months, it shouldn’t take too long.
Like you, I am very anxious to get a decision and also to get started with other legal activities that are waiting for the decision from the court so that I know what I have to show all the others when I contact them.
Police, prosecutors and courts do not work quickly and nowadays all over Europe they are busier than ever. We are almost at the point of decision-making, and I will keep you updated throughout. It’s not that far away now.
Over the weekend, something else strange happened. I received an email from a German lawyer in Düsseldorf inviting me to a press conference in Barcelona at the beginning of May. There was no exact date, time or location, other than Barcelona. I replied to the lawyer yesterday, Sunday, asking what the purpose was and who he was representing. The lawyer wrote back that he was representing Viktor Bitner who is now wanted by the German police, but that the press conference would be about the people behind Juicy Fields. The whole email and how the lawyer expressed himself seemed more than strange as a lawyer does not do that and does not express himself as he did.
I called the lawyer today and he confirmed that it was he who sent me the e-mail, and that the people who will appear at the press conference are; van de Merwe, Vaimer and Glanse. They will tell the press conference that they are completely innocent and that it is all von Luxburg’s fault, and it is these brothers who have taken all the money. I did not comment on this statement.
It seems to me that it is completely wrong to call a press conference when the lawyer tells me that he does not represent these three gentlemen at all, but only Bitner, but was asked to make the announcement because they did not dare, or could not, and that he has not checked out the story of their involvement and that it is obvious that they naturally knew what was happening or that they did not ask any questions at all. Now the lawyer has taken a lot of money and allowed himself to be made into a useful idiot, which is completely insane in my opinion. In addition, the date, time and place are, of course, specified if people are to go to Barcelona. We will see what happens and I will keep you updated.
