Have not the poor Greeks suffered enough: leading newspaper eKathimerini falls for the Julie Meyer pitch as the vulture swoops on a new mark

By Tom Winnifrith | Wednesday 6 October 2021


In the USA, UK, Malta, Croatia, and Switzerland Julie “Lingerie on Expenses” Meyer faces untold court cases, owes millions to tax authorities, lawyers, staff, and other creditors and even faces jail for contempt of court and an FCA criminal enquiry. But for every rat there is a safe hole somewhere and now Julie has blessed the Hellenic Republic with her presence and the local press appear all too willing to push her PR narrative without question as you can see below.

The article fails to mention the 20-year trail of unpaid bills and legal defeats. Instead, it talks of a conference with companies presenting who can transform Greece such as Drive Software. What that, totally insolvent, Drive Software? Yup. And how Ms Meyer is going to bring transformational wealth to the Greek islands. Whatever. 

I suggest this is what might be termed fake news and, at best, reporter Dimitris Delevengos has been well and truly duped. I have reached out to him pointing out a few articles he might read before running a correction. Somehow I don’t expect a member of the MSM to behave with that level of integrity until Julie’s Greek adventure ends the same way as Croatia, Malta, the UK, and Switzerland where, facing legal action, she is now, I can reveal, on her fifth set of lawyers. One can only imagine why.
