“..Was there a conspiracy to defeat the course of justice after the collapse of the Hanover Group of companies?
That’s the question the Government must address after the disquieting claims in relation to the attempts by the trio allegedly working for Hanover Finance to discredit the SFO and FMA and prime potential witnesses in any resulting court cases.

– and blogger Cameron (Whale Oil) Slater –
– were running campaigns apparently on behalf of Hotchin to try to discredit the SFO and the Financial Markets Authority –
– as they investigated the failed finance company.

– would be a travesty..”
