Oh dear, oh dear, the cutlure of legging over regulators with false submissions at the Ariadne ponzi scheme headed up by Julie "lingerie on expenses" Meyer seems endemic. In this email thread below followed by the filing submitted by Meyer herself we see Malta employee Chris Cachia and ex in house lawyer Peter Bradley discussing how to avoid financial penalties for Ariadne in Malta by not telling the truth about the date a key officer, Peter Hale, actually resigned. Natch I have passed this on to the MFSA for it to consider as part of its ongoing and wide ranging investigatiuons into Ariadne and Ms Meyer.
In his time as General Counsel to the Ariadne Group run by Julie “Lingerie on Expenses” Meyer , Mr Peter Bradley had occasion to send me three lawyers letters on behalf of his boss who is now being investigated by the FCA, the MFSA, the SFO, Action Fraud, the IRS, HMRC and is wanted on criminal charges by the Maltese Police. I had thought that Bradley had parted company with the charlatan, liar and fraudster Meyer in April but the Ariadne website, as you can see below, suggests otherwise.
On 24 May 2018 I ran an article on the case of former Ariadne employee Steve Lazarus who, like so many others working for Julie “Lingerie on Expenses” Meyer was not paid and had to seek legal redress. That article needs correcting, not for what it said about the appalling behaviour of Meyer but for a question posed of her, now ex, legal Counsel Peter Bradley. An amended article is below.
I was reminded today about numerous ways Julie Meyer has bullied her critics to silence them - defamatory internet posts, lawyers letters, the works. Thanks to the Winnileaks service we can now see confidential emails which show how she managed to silence ex employees posting on the workjplace review site Glassdoor.co.uk. First up is an email from Julie to key lieutenants within Ariadne including lawyer Peter Bradley. It is dated 26 November 2017.
Noting yesterday that Julie Meyer MBE had hired a new high powered lawyer (to replace the half dozen or more to whom her companies owe money for unpaid bills) I wondered why ace PR spinner Henry Gewanter did not have his name on the release. Henry has answered with a post on the article. It reads:
The Police in two countries are now seeking a word with Julie Meyer MBE and it is not for advice on how to hold a prayer meeting. It seems for a while that Julie has been a bit paranoid about all the leaks of damaging information about her. So in December she instructed her lawyer Peter Bradley to send the letter below to her countless ex employees. It threatened dire consequences if it was passed on. Natch someone has and I publish it in full. What is it that Julie Meyer is so keen to hide? How long have you got?
Acting on conversations with three sources (two ex Ariadne employees and the hotel itself) I last week suggested that Ariadne had an unpaid bill at the Westin Draganara Hotel in Malta. Peter Bradley, the in house lawyer at Ariadne , has been in contact and insists that this is not the case and therefore, since he is an honourable man, I take him at his word and have withdrawn the article and make it clear taht there can be no question of there being an unpaid bill. Naturally I apologise for any confusion caused.
An ex employee of Ariadne Capital, terming him self John Galt after the Ayn Rand character has already exposed the truth behind the myth that is First Tuesday. In his second post on LinkedIn he now exposed the series of scandals and lawsuits that have marked the career of Julie Meyer MBE of Ariadne. His punishment, someone complained and his account has been suspended. Luckily I copied the posting before that happened and so since I really am a free speech supporting libertarian unlike some folks I could mention...
It reminds me of the opening scenes at a big tech conference a few years ago. The compare asks the first speaker: tell me a bad technology joke. The guy says "Julie Meyer" and the audience bursts out laughing. Anyhow, for today's comedy from the crumbling empire and you really could not make this up...
