A message to Leon

You took me on board as your Finance Director, with no real support. I had to run the finances of a multi million pound company, working from scratch.

You blamed me for making mistakes but look what I had to work with; although she tried her best, my number 1 was a waitress, known by my father.

I worked night and day, as I was so loyal and it made me ill, right in front of you. I got married a month before the buy out and my wife never saw me. I never saw my little girl either because I was working for my family. It ended up with my wife sleeping with my best friend and I hardly saw my daughter.

You knew all of that and even though it made me ill, you never recognised it. I even sorted out your special seats for the Audi and convinced our fleet operator to sell me a cheap car so that you could give it away on the firm’s anniversary and boost your ego.

Even when I made you all multi millionaires and given all of the sacrifice, what did I get? £5,000 and I was expected to feel grateful.

Just before you left, I took a holiday. I was told by my Kate that when I was away, a string of directors went into your office, showing their legs, sat on your desk and got totally inappropriate cars.

When I returned you had left, no shaking hands, nothing but your replacement gave me grief as to the cars that you had agreed to. They were all cancelled but Graham still had that in his mind that it was my fault, even though I was not there even fucking there to stop it all.

Then there was Garrod, the armchair director, who drove me into the ground and despite asking him 5 times for extra staff, he refused, to boost his bonus no doubt.

I could take it no more and snapped. My career that I had worked for, for my whole life had gone.

What was my compensation? 5 years of salary but my career was over and I have never had a job since.

Puttergill thought that I would be paid millions by the trust but how fucking wrong he was. My father is a bastard, a paedophile (of me and others) and has destroyed my body. If you bothered to read my blog, you would know what he has done to me, financially, emotionally and physically.

You have all failed me. You were my only real boss, I respected you but you let me down; you betrayed me Leon

That is why I am fighting for everything that I am due. If I go down with you all, so be it . My life is over anyway

Lifting the lid on the corrupt Berwin Leighton Paisner and its associated companies

This is a letter sent to the co-chair of Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner, Lisa Mayhew, today

By email and Royal Mail

23rd May 2022

Dear Ms Mayhew,

The Hender Family Settlement

Adriatic Sea Corporation Limited

Paicolex Trust Management AG

I have now communicated with you for a number of years, albeit in one direction. I am sick and tired of all of this, as I am sure that you are too.

My father’s activities are wrapped up in the family, BLP, The Masons and Paicolex ; so everything is relevant

Let me first remind you of what my father has done to me or instructed to have done to me, whether through Paicolex or not.

All is fact and supported by documentary or medical evidence

  • He sexually abused me, starting when I was between 11 or 12; The damage done to me, as a result of the abuse, is irreparable, with the symptoms likened to severe IBS; embarrassment prevents me from going into further details.
  • He bribed my daughter into falsely accusing me of her sexual abuse and actual bodily harm. That nightmare lasted 4 months, after which the case was thrown out by the police and the CPS. The trauma included having my home ripped apart, so much so that it has been so violated, as if it was raped that I no longer want to live here and have not don’t so for 6 YEARS
  • He tried to bribe me with a payment of £250,000 to leave the country; I refused, as I will never be bribed or bullied.
  • He incited my daughter and her mother to falsely accuse me of harassment. I was illegally arrested, for failure to attend a voluntary interview and for defamation and dragged out of my house and taken to Newport Police Station, where I was interrogated for hours. The forcible extraction from my house and “safe zone” caused a catatonic attack as I was and am still suffering from extreme agoraphobia. I was released on bail, although I was never formerly charged.
  • A week before the trial date, the immense stress that I was suffering meant I wished to kill myself as I could no longer take the pain anymore. I was admitted to a psychiatric hospital on the mainland but had to leave after 3 weeks, because I had already paid £20,000. I asked for financial assistance from the trust, but this was refused by Clare Edwards and my father, even though I had previously sacrificed my business to look after my late mother, who had Alzheimer’s and my father who was suffering from heart problems.
  • I had no alternative but to discharge myself and find other accommodation. This turned out to be a run down hotel in Guildford, filled with drug addicts and homeless people. I was there for 3 months during the pandemic.
  • No one knew where I was at this time
  • I then received a call for help from my cousin and drove up to her house in Wales to be her fulltime carer, as she has supposedly had a bad fall, although nothing was broken, a bonus given that she is in her 70s. This was a ruse to “flush me out”, as a day later, she confessed she had contacted my father. Two days later, the police turned up at her house and arrested me. I was then put on remand by a judge in Swansea Prison for being a flight risk
  • She sent me a message whilst I was in prison saying that she had taken her two dogs to the beach and had a wonderful time. One of her dogs is a husky that pulls like a train, as they are bred like that. Before I was arrested, she could not even walk her more passive dog whilst I was there.
  • Even given her “injuries”, she was able to lift my heavy bags, printer and computer into my 4×4 and drive it onto the road, even though, whilst I was there. she struggled to even just climb into it. I drive a Landcruiser Amazon, the most powerful and largest 4×4 on the road, which I use to tow 3 ton trailers.
  • After one month of being on suicide watch, I was released with a suspended sentence. I still keep the light on outside my bedroom.
  • It later turned out that I was never formally charged of any offence but this was ignored by the corrupt masonic judge.
  • Since taking over from Thomas Meier, I have been battling with Clare Edwards. She stated many times that:
  • I had been paid the same amount as my brother
  • Ron Downhill had retired and was no longer involved with the settlement
  • My brother’s loan of £1.4M had been fully paid
  • I know all of the above to be completely false

The only other thing that my father could do to hurt me further is to arrange for a bullet to be put through my head.

I proved that:

  1. Ron Downhill was still the tax and legal advisor to the trust
  2. He, along with my father and brother, attended a meeting at a Masonic Temple, below your offices, with the specific aim of removing me as a beneficiary. This failed because the trust deed was watertight
  3. My brother had been paid an additional £200,000 of dividends in 2017/8
  4. My brother had not repaid the loan, as the underlying principal was still outstanding in the latest accounts of my brother’s company, as disclosed in those accounts
  5. Clare Edwards had falsified the satisfaction of charge filing
  6. The loan taken out by my brother was interest free, whereas I was charged 2% over base. This is contrary to the Trustees Acts of 2000 and , as all beneficiaries must be treated equally.
  7. He committed perjury during my divorce hearing held at Worthing Family Court before District Judge Clarke {Case number HB14D00110}, in July 2015, whereby he, under oath stated that “he treated both sons equally” but knowingly perjured himself as, at that moment, he had already arranged for the payment of £245,000 to my brother, Martin William Hender {and a further £300,000 in the following tax year} in direct contravention of the Perjury Act 1911
  • Clare Edwards had unilaterally inserted an amount into the bona fidei loan balance due from me (but disputed as a result of the legal claim by my ex wife against my father for breach of a verbal and witnessed contract and for breach of promise); this was not included in the signed, sealed and executed loan agreement between myself and Adriatic Sea Corporation. This amount was then immediately deducted from my dividend, with the rest carried forward. At this point, I refused to pay any additional interest
  • Clare Edwards and Andrew Lugg then imposed a repayment schedule, even though there was no such suggestion of repayment in the loan agreement. The repayments were calculated on a figure that was unilaterally added (and then immediately repaid); I was paying twice but had no power or means to fight this. This was why I kept on writing to you, asking for help that never came.
  • That Verity Hender and Samantha Parkinson have knowingly conspired with William Thomas Hender, the trust officers of the Hender Family Settlement and specifically Mr Ron Downhill, legal and tax advisor to the same, to directly and indirectly harass me and to cause me mental and physical harm by detrimentally affecting my legally entitled sole source of income, which is contrary to the Harassment Act 2010, as superceded by the Harassment Acts of 2014 and 2019 and in contravention of the Criminal Justice Act 1977

If this was not enough, the constant stress over such a long period of time has triggered a very painful, untreatable and incurable skin condition called Prurigo Nodularis, which covers my entire body, with a cream giving only mild pain relief.

To say that I have been egregiously treated by Paicolex and BLP is an understatement, with all of the actors conspiring to literally ruin my life; William Hender, Martin Hender, John Marriott, Clare Edwards, Andrew Lugg and Ron Downhill. Their added “bonus” is that I have permanently lost my daughter, Verity, who was my world.

What I wish for is for you to please act accordingly and to discuss with me a sizeable compensation payment to enable me to start a new life and to try and heal, well away from here.

I also wish recognition to be made for all of the physical and mental harm caused by your employees and consultants.

Finally, I respectfully demand that Paicolex Trust Management AG be cleaned out once and for all, as well as dealing with those trust officers, who have egregiously breached their ethical, legal and fiduciary duties of care to the Hender Family Settlement and, to me, as joint beneficiary.

Ron Downhill is highly respected as a “tax expert”, but he is not infallible as a mistake was made in the Vendcrown legal documents that refer to the shares as “Mr Hender’s shares”. This proves that the “arrangement” was a tax evasion exercise, using Michael Cobb’s South African domiciliary status as a way to evade approximately £6m of capital gains tax and 40% of the trust’s assets in inheritance tax, when my father died. Remember that I have a copy of the Project Vendcrown bible.

My father may not be the only one exposed. Leon Du Toit Stoffberg could also be charged with tax evasion and his share of the proceeds was substantial, compared to that of my father’s.

When the tax evasion of William Hender and Leon Du Toit Stoffberg is proven in court (I have all of the documents and will gladly act for the prosecution), Ron Downhill will be charged with the facilitation of tax evasion under the Criminal Finance Act 2017 and, as he was a partner at the time, the now dissolved entire BLP partnership will be charged under the same act, under a partnership’s joint and several liability provisions. The act is retrospective as I am sure you are aware. There may not be any prison sentences but the fines will be enormous and may give rise to the collapse of the Bryan Cave Leighton partnership.

Ron Downhill must be dealt with too; he is right at the centre of all of this. His involvement is three fold. As well as the tax evasion facilitation of William Hender and Leon Stoffberg, he is a mason and must be loyal to my father, brother and any other mason. Finally, I angered him for getting Thomas Meier sacked for breach of his fiduciary duties as a trust officer, as Mr Meier is/was one of his best and closest friends.

I remind you that under the trust deed, no actions may be taken by the trust officers of Paicolex without first seeking advice from the legal and tax advisor to the trustees, that person being Ronald Downhill. Advice must have been given, otherwise the actions of the trust officers would have been ultra vires to the trust deed. Therefore, Ronald Downhill provided advice for all of the actions of the trust officers. All are culpable.

There are other matters that need to be resolved, including:

  1. What to do with my brother’s £1.4M unpaid loan to Adriatic Sea Corporation and the interest that should have been paid
  2. The dividend inflationary increases that were refused by Clare Edwards, Andrew Lugg and William Hender
  3. The situation of the loan balance, as my ex wife is currently suing my father for breach of the verbal contract and for breach of promise, with regard to the capital settlement that I was forced to make and which represents the balance on my loan account (Approx £180,000).
  4. The repayment of the balances in respect of the children of Samantha Hender and Martin Hender, made out of capital, in breach of the trust deed
  5. All such payments must be disclosed on the parents’ tax returns, if they were minors (or minors in sole custody of an adult) when the payments were made, or to the children personally when they became adults.
  6. The future involvement of my father,(the settlor), Martin Hender and John Marriott, Ron Downhill or any other party in The Hender Family Settlement
  7. The repayment of charges applied to my income that were illegal and not in accordance with the signed and executed loan agreement of October 2015

Kind regards

David Hender

Another Conservative masonic parliamentarian is arrested for rape (updated)

I have talked about the masons, who are so rife throughout society that they consider themselves above the law. They are paedophiles, rapists and tax evaders.

But now, yet another has been caught out for rape. We don’t know his name but it will surface very soon.

It may be a secret society but is secret no more; they are filth and are at the bottom of the sewer

In 2016, the government put through a motion so that UNTIL an MP was charged, he had to remain anonymous. This is a classic masonic move, where they can keep the heinous actions of the secret society, hidden from public view.

Yet again, this is a case of “us and them” whereby the ordinary man or “celebrity” is named and shamed BEFORE he is even charged. For us ordinary people, it becomes a classic case of trial by media and the most basic principle of English law is set aside with regard to the presumption of innocence.

Many celebrities have their careers destroyed over a mere whiff of an accusation and it makes no difference if that person is found innocent; the damage has been done. The great comedian, Freddie Star, was accused of sexual abuse. He was innocent but the damage had been done. He killed himself, bankrupt.

Of course, if that person is charged and found guilty, then he should be thrown to the wolves but not until then.

Dear Miss Mayhew,


I have proved without any doubt the following

  • That Clare Edwards lied to me, constantly denying that any of the below had taken place
  • That with the co-operation of Clare Edwards and Andrew Lugg, my brother stole from the trust on two occasions, one for £200,000 of dividends and one for the non repayment/write off of a £1.4m interest free loan
  • That as a UK solicitor, Clare Edwards has professionally failed in her legal, ethical and fiduciary duties, as a trust officer to the Hender Family Settlement and has not only broken English and Welsh law, on which the trust deed is based but has breached multiple provisions of the trust deed with regard to the distribution of capital. I cite the multiple distributions to Francesca, Iyshea and Verity Hender and the write off of the £1.4m loan from Adriatic Sea Corporation to my brother and joint beneficiary, Martin William Hender
  • That as a UK solicitor, Ron Downhill has failed in his professional, legal, ethical and fiduciary duties, as the tax and legal advisor to the Hender Family Settlement
  • That as a UK solicitor and former tax partner to Berwin Leighton Paisner, Ron Downhill facilitated the tax evasion of William Hender, and Leon Du Toit Stoffberg ,which is in contravention Criminal Finance Act 2017 and which is retrospective. I have complete documentation. 
  • Furthermore, with regards to the “Project Vendcrown” legal bible, an error was made insofar that the reference was made to “Mr Hender’s shares” (8.5.2 page 15) and not the trust or Michael Cobb’s shares, thus proving that the Michael Cobb settlement for William Hender’s children was a tax evasion scam
  • That Ron Downhill, being a mason, has knowingly conspired with his fellow masons, William Thomas Hender and Martin William Hender, as well as the aforementioned trust officers ,to directly and indirectly harass me and to cause me mental and physical harm by detrimentally affecting my legally entitled sole source of income, which is contrary to the Harassment Act 2010, as superceded by the Harassment Acts of 2014 and 2019 and in contravention of the Criminal Justice Act 1977 

Miss Mayhew, these are just a small part of the egregious actions of the trust officers and Paicolex Trust Management AG.

I have the stored emails to prove that I have notified you of all of the above, in a variety of emails that I have stored but you refuse to do anything, even though you take ultimate responsibility for the actions of the staff and partners of Berwin Leighton Paisner, the UK part of the merged partnership of Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner. These are no longer allegations but fact. Your personal assistant, Gaby Kaiser, was well aware as to what you were doing by diverting emails to her and was no longer prepared to risk taking responsibility and consequently advised me that she was leaving. I have her relevant email and this is shows that you are FULLY EXPOSED

May I remind you that as the 100% shareholder of Paicolex Trust Management AG, you, as chairwoman, take ultimate responsibility and are solely culpable for the egregious and illegal actions of not only the partners and consultants of Berwin Leighton Paisner but also for the actions of the employees and trust officers of Paicolex Trust Management AG and its subsidiaries.

You have NEVER responded to a single one of my emails. Not only is that EXTREMELY discourteous but is also grossly unprofessional. I have never seen such unprofessional behaviour in my entire professional life.

I have to wonder as to what it would take for you to take action. Full disclosure of the tax evading “planning” of the BLP partners for the benefit of their clients to the HMRC, who would no doubt bury it, and to the media maybe?

With extreme prejudice- a message to the masons

Now that I have collated all of the information and recovered from making that YouTube video, regarding my sexual abuse by my father, I have now written a damning email to those who call the shots, especially as I cannot email either my brother or my father, as I do not have their email addresses.

What is said is self explanatory.

Just one matter that was not in the email. I forgot that my ex wife had written to her divorce solicitors, Weightmans. The reason that she had written to them, with a copy of the notarised statement, was to prove that despite Rosanna telling them about the verbal contract with my father, they said that they were not going to raise it with the judge. Just two words – MASONIC INFLUENCE.

She had written to them before, asking for the files, but they never responded. But as soon as the notarised statement dropped on their mat, they were so very willing to oblige and are prepared to send them all of the files. As Rosanna said, they are running scared, very scared.

So, here is the email. I have slightly redacted it to protect the innocent

From: David Hender <>

Subject: Matters at hand – WITH EXTREME PREJUDICE


You will have now received the notarised statement of my ex wife, Rosanna; it does not take a rocket scientist to work out that we are working together and have done for a number of weeks.

Some of what she said in her statement shocked me but was totally believable, given what my father did to me. Her statement collaborates everything that I have said publicly on my blog and elsewhere.

I will remind you that despite my accusations, my father has NEVER denied sexually abusing with me, members of my family or other step members.

At this point, although I am not a mason and have never desired to be, the masonic brotherhood must have a code of practice of some sort. So, given that all of my assertions regarding my father and brother have been substantiated, I have to consider why those in charge at the lodges, have not admonished my father for sexually abusing his son, granddaughters and xxxxxxx.

But he is not alone, far from it. My brother took a bribe to stay quiet when one or both of my nieces was sexually abused and that this was backed up by his wife. Their actions are indescribable and, as I see it, are just as bad as the abuses themselves. Would either of you have taken hush money if some of your children or grandchildren were sexually abused by another mason? Would your loyalty to the brotherhood supersede your disgust for what had happened to your family by a fellow mason, with the innocence of the victims, your family, being denied them for life? Whatever I may think of my daughter, her innocence was taken by someone whom she loved and trusted.

At this juncture, I have to thank my estranged cousin, Lori, as it was she who allowed me to fill in the missing pieces of the jigsaw. Without her, I would be years away from finding out the truth, if I ever fitted it together at all.

As a simple example, I would never have known about the meeting in the temple, below BLP (Berwin Leighton Paisner), when there was an attempt to remove me as a beneficiary of the trust, with my father, brother and Downhill present.

Of course, if questioned, she will deny it all but ask yourself this; how would I have known about this meeting and the fact that my father paid my daughter money to falsely accuse me of sexual abuse? There are many other examples, as she wanted to ingratiate herself to me and con me into believing that she was “on my side”, which she was not, of course.

I have brushed away the pain that all of those awful incidents from the last 6 years have done to me, have pigeon holed my own sexual abuse and am now ready to put the final nails in many coffins.

You will now be aware that I have started a YouTube channel, with the first video being the most painful of all of those planned, that of my own sexual abuse by my father.

My next video is to be a detailed account of the activities of the masons, who have brushed my life in any way; the family, you two, the police, magistrates and judges; all will be named; I have no qualms in doing that. In fact, it will be a release of all of the information that I have had bottled up inside me for so long.

Then, I will turn my attention to the activities of the trust officers, the actions of you, Mr Downhill and the proved inactions of Lisa Mayhew. That will include the facilitation of tax evasion, the tax evasion itself and the tax that has been evaded by my brother and daughter, the later with the help of you, Mr Downhill.

Alternatively, I may bring in a trust barrister, whose sizeable fees will be based on a large share of the damages awarded to me; it is not about the money but is about the principle, as I hold a different “covenant” to the one by which my family abide.

There is now corroborated legal proof that my father breached a verbal contract with Rosanna, with regard to a property for her and the boys, in the event of a divorce.

There is now proof that the trust officers not only double paid my brother but also wrote off a £1.4m loan to Adriatic, all in the trust officers’ OWN HANDS and so much more.

I have not even started on Harwyn, where money was funnelled to my brother’s failing brewery company and was not even disclosed in accordance with the Companies Act. I am quite sure that dividends were paid out of this company but, without a subpoena, this is yet to be proved, although as a shareholder of Harwyn, I am legally entitled to receive the full accounts of the company.

There are, as I see it, a number of matters that need to be rectified:

A full pay-out to myself, for the historic sexual abuse by my father, the attempted bribery, the facilitation of false sexual abuse allegations alleged by my daughter, the facilitation of false harassment claims, leading to the life long suffering of a painful and incurable skin condition, Prurigo Nodularis, with compensation to be paid by my father personally

A sizeable amount of compensation to be paid to me, by BLP and/or Paicolex Trust Management AG, for the gross and egregious breaches by both the trust officers of Paicolex Trust Management AG and the tax and legal advisor to the trust with the trust’s assets being transferred to Barclays Wealth, to be held under their diligent and uncorrupted care.  

A full pay-out to Rosanna, for breach of a verbal legal contract and for breach of a promise, to be paid by my father, as he was legally bound to disclose, UNDER OATH, during the divorce proceedings. 

Monthly maintenance payments being made by my father to Rosanna, for the rest of Rosanna’s life to allow her to devote her entire time to caring for xxxxxxx who, in addition to the xxxxxxxx, has wild mood swings, as a result of the abuse. Sadly, xxxxxxxxx consciousness was unable to bury the nightmarish events that he suffered, as opposed to what my memory did many years ago but which, are now sadly in my full consciousness


These are the main matters but there are also administrative matters to attend to such as

The repayment of the £1.4M loan granted to my brother by Adriatic Sea Corporation, to be proven by evidence of the bank transfer

Past and future accounts of Adriatic Sea Corporation to be sent to me

The payment of £1.25M of “advanced inheritance” to me, as paid to my brother, by my father

The payment of £200,000 of dividends paid to my brother and not to myself, contrary to the trust deed

The payment of the current balance due by me to Adriatic Sea Corporation, by my father, approximating £180,000

The eradication of falsified and illegal additions to the amount due by me to Adriatic Sea Corporation with the illegal deduction in 2007/8 being repaid to me

Gentlemen, may I remind you that I have the will, the means and the evidence to prove everything that is mentioned in this email; It can be sent with the “Without prejudice” header if you prefer

I have all of the evidence, some of it proffered to me by Lori Cameron, to prove the masonic link to the family’s affairs and to the disreputable, disgraceful and corrupt way that I was treated by the police and the judiciary, with all of the names of the actors, which will cause the Masonic brotherhood to be deeply embarrassed. 

Remember that I have been in regular contact with the media and I can only suggest that my corroborated evidence will blow the secrecy of the Masonic brotherhood wide open and especially its connection with the corrupt judiciary.

My mother instilled in me a strong sense of morality and so I am neither scared nor worried about blowing the whole thing wide open

Whilst you process what I have said in this lengthy but detailed email, I will be preparing my next YouTube video that will be go live over the weekend. To remind you, it will concern the masonic interaction with the family et all.
