‘Ernie, can I suggest that we perhaps meet for that drink, tea, coffee or beer whatever your preference? It will only be me nobody esle and I give you my complete assurances that we together will get to the bottom of this. I want the ROT out of this committee as much, if not more than you do – truthfully.’ (Paul Gill)
IT BECAME CLEAR THAT WHAT PAUL REALLY WANTED WAS THE CHAIRMANSHIP OF THE TRUST. HIS ASSURANCES WERE FIBS.
‘I already know the truth of the matter. Sadly proving it is a different story….
….I already have in my possession a version of one of the events that happened on the night that Jim Gallagher has related and of course its untrue. I know its untrue as it concerns me and I’m supremely confident that my memory of the event is crystal clear.’ (Stuart Duncan)
‘SADLY PROVING IT WAS A DIFFERENT STORY’ UNTIL LATER WHEN SEAN DONNELLY APPEARED MIRACULOUSLY AS AN EYE WITNESS
‘I heard he told a popular message board poster that he never got £600 from Stuart Duncan to pay Chick Young. Tell him that Stuart’s got a witness who saw him handing over the money, me.’ (9 Strathblane Crescent)
STUART DUNCAN IS 9 STRATHBLANE CRESCENT (AS UNCOVERED LATER BY A MODERATOR ON THE FORUM.) WHY DID HE TRY TO FALSIFY A WITNESS AND THEN LATER PRODUCE DONNELLY AS A WITNESS?
‘I have not relied on what I was told by the trust old guard and where I could not feel reasonably confident on the balance of probabilities, I have given Mr Gallacher the benefit of the doubt.’ (Nick Robinson).
LATER – WITH ONLY DUNCAN’S WORD AGAINST GALLACHER’S AND CONTRARY TO ALL OF THE CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE, ROBINSON STATED:
FURTHERMORE, ROBINSON INCLUDED THAT £600 IN ACCOUNTS SUBMITTED TO COURT AND TO MR GALLACHER’S TRUSTEE AND HE DID SO WITH NO PROOF WHATSOEVER.
‘It was sold and monies handed in to the trust.’ (Sean Donnelly – re. a ‘bootful’ of alcohol he took home from the ‘Stars’ event.
THERE IS NO ENTRY IN THE ACCOUNTS. JUST ONE OF DONNELLY’S MULTIPLE LIES.
‘WHEN YOU WERE CAUGHT’. MRS. DONNELLY SEEMS TO FORGET THAT MR. GALLACHER WAS EXONERATED BY THE C.I.D. HER HUSBAND’S UNEXPLAINED DEFICIT REMAINS TO BE ACCOUNTED FOR.
‘I am 100% confident that I have the evidence required to get the trust members money back from one individual.
I have prepared a full report on the matter which will be published at the appropriate time.
I had kept away from the topic due to all the rumour, innuendo, guesswork while I worked away in the background to get to the whole truth of the matter, especially in the circumstances of there being a lack of a papertrail.
I have not sat idly by – I have done my utmost to make a thorough investigation as has been practically possible based on the experience of my former employment.’ (Danny Goodwin immediately after Strathclyde C.I.D. exonerated Jim Gallacher)
GOODWIN WAS UNABLE TO PROVIDE A SHRED OF EVIDENCE TO INCRIMINATE MR. GALLACHER.
‘I had asked to see the accounts and was told that would not be possible at the time, but I have since seen 2 sets of accounts submitted which are nothing short of complete and utter rubbish.’
ANDY MORRISON – A NON TRUST COMMITTEE MEMBER WHO HAD NO AUTHORITY TO ASK TO SEE ACCOUNTS BUT WHO WAS DETERMIONED TO STITCH UP MR. GALLACHER.
‘ In my opinion there were still unanswered questions and based on my experience of these type of events I felt that there was a possibility that some money had gone missing. Therefore in the interest of the Trust members I supported an approach to the police to have them investigate.’ (Jim McColl –Trust Board member).
THERE WAS NOTHING TO INDICATE THAT MCCOLL – A RETIRED PROJECT MANAGER AT I.B.M. HAD ‘EXPERIENCE OF THESE TYPE OF EVENTS’.
