BREAKING: Afren Whistleblower promises to tell all in London Tribunal on Monday

By Tom Winnifrith | Thursday 14 September 2017

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

Remember the Afren (AFR) disaster 2015. Readers of this website were warned numerous times but still thousands of investors lost a packet. Afren was a story of over-gearing, falling oil prices, incompetence but also of fraud. Elekwachi Ukwu was the Afren plc Company Secretary and claims to have been fired for whistleblowing. Now Ukwu is preparing to spill the beans.

Ukwu states:

"I have a hearing at the Central London Employment Tribunal Holborn on 18 and 19 September 2017.
I am concerned at the significant pressure that has been exerted to withdraw or water down my claims and will take appropriate steps to ensure that the malpractice and crimes which I am being vilified for exposing is brought to the attention of the public.

I would also like as many shareholders and their contacts in the media to attend the hearing in September as I believe it would be interesting to observe and hear firsthand about the challenges I have faced in trying to hold to account some of the principal actors in the malpractice, fraud, corruption and cover up in Afren."
