Mortonjag’s readers may by now have concluded that Trustee Iain Forsyth was heavily influenced by fellow insolvency practitioner Nick Robinson’s role in G.M.S.T. v Gallacher, and acted unprofessionally in favouring the G.M.S.T.’s invalid claim on Jim Gallacher’s Trust Deed.
Despite Mr. Forsyth being bound to total objectivity, knowing of the contentious nature of the matter, and having been exhorted to study all of the evidence, he accepted the unsubstantiated G.M.S.T. claim, and he did so knowingly, and to the detriment of his client and the established creditors.
Mortonjag considers that that was in order to favour fellow insolvency practitioner Nick Robinson, in the belief that Mr Gallacher did not possess the resources to contest his decision.
When challenged on his inexplicable conduct, the Trustee froze his prior adjudication, went into hiding, and blanked ‘recorded delivery’ correspondence from his client’s representative for weeks, until he was ultimately ‘flushed out’ when Jim Gallacher formally complained to Carrington Dean.
Mortonjag considers that that unprofessional conduct was because the Trustee had no satisfactory explanation for his failure to exclude the false creditor from the initial adjudication process.
When it became apparent that Jim Gallacher’s complaint would drag out for three months or more, Mortonjag approached Peter Dean of Carrington Dean in the hope that the situation could be ‘retrieved’ swiftly and amicably.
The following is an excerpt from the relevant letter.
Mortonjag explained that far from seeking compensation or retribution, all that Jim Gallacher sought was formal rejection of the G.M.S.T.’s unsubstantiated claim to allow him to get matters back into court. That was his absolute RIGHT from the company which had agreed to take care of his interests.
Mr. Dean intended to THOROUGHLY INVESTIGATE the matter within seven days, and his compliance manager had all the necessary evidence at his disposal. That was encouraging.
Mortonjag felt uneasy. Mr. Dean had initially promised to ‘thoroughly investigate’ the matter. Now he planned to ‘discuss it in detail with Iain Forsyth’!
A week later, fears were confirmed. Ranks had been closed, nothing had been investigated, and Mortonjag received a ‘slap across the wrist’ for a ‘serious allegation’ he had not made!
LIKE NICK ROBINSON AND IAIN FORSYTH BEFORE HIM, PETER DEAN PROVED TO BE A BAREFACED LIAR.
SURELY SUCH DESPICABLE CREATURES ARE NOT REPRESENTATIVE OF THEIR PROFESSION AS A WHOLE!
Peter Dean had looked at NOTHING. He had bought into liar Forsyth’s story ‘chapter and verse’, and ‘could not see anything which would indicate that Mr. Forsyth’s involvement had been other than of an acceptable standard’.
PERHAPS ‘YOUR P.P.I. EXPERT’ SHOULD HAVE GONE TO SPECSAVERS!….
TRUST AN EXPERT – LIAR!
Mortonjag chuckled at Forsyth’s pointless offer of a meeting fully seven weeks after he blanked an invitation to a friendly informal chat, and instead Mr. Dean was confronted with his unacceptable ‘cop out’.
The bird had flown, and on Peter Dean’s return, he did NOT revert to Mortonjag as his executive assistant had anticipated!
Instead, on 3rd December 2015, the day of his return, the following arrived from Carrington Dean’s compliance manager.
Mortonjag’s readers may be interested to learn the truth about that ‘guidance’ Carrington Dean were allegedly seeking from the A.I.B.
They were not seeking guidance at all. They had sought A.I.B. approval to close the Trust Deed, and brush the whole sordid mess under the carpet, on the basis of misleading information!
That would have left Jim Gallacher stranded in ‘no mans land’ in terms of the court case, and Nick Robinson’s disgusting scam would have succeeded.
They were too late though. Patience had finally run out, and Mortonjag was already in correspondence with Barry Simpson of the Trust Deed team at the Accountant in Bankruptcy!
NEXT TIME. ‘FIDDLER FORSYTH’S DELIBERATE MISTAKE!
