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by detrimentally affecting my legally entitled sole source of income, which is contrary to the Harassment Act 2010, as superceded by the Harassment Acts of 2014 and 2019 and in contravention of the Criminal Justice Act 1977 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?
