When Jim Gallacher finally received that letter, he had endured over six years of malicious persecution at the hands of persons purporting to represent the Greenock Morton Supporters’ Trust, and without the unsanctioned opportunism of Nicholas Robinson C.A., a director of Greenock Morton Football Club, he and his dying mother would have had ‘closure’ in November 2011, when, in order to evade a court hearing, Robinson incepted a reprehensible Trust Deed scam which saw Jim’s true creditors deprived of their rightful dividend.
Robinson apparently colluded with the Trustee to obtain a favourable outcome for the G.M.S.T., until the Accountant in Bankruptcy was asked to investigate, whereupon a previous decision in the Trust’s favour was overturned.
The Trustee has stated unequivocally that the Trust’s claim (identical to that submitted to the court) was invalidated because of insufficient evidence. He confirmed to the Accountant in Bankruptcy that that decision followed further investigation undertaken after the A.I.B. became involved.
Mortonjag’s readers will recall that the Trustee accepted from the outset that items subsequently described as ‘debt’ had been held ‘on trust’. That was agreed between G.M.S.T. representatives and Mr. Gallacher’s solicitor on 5th August 2010 almost three months before the Trust Deed was signed, and is documented. Mr. Gallacher was never indebted to the Greenock Morton Supporters’ Trust.
THE TRUSTEE FIRSTLY REJECTED THE TRUST’S ‘EVIDENCE’ OF DEBT, BEFORE CONCLUDING THAT THE TRUST WAS NOT A CREDITOR.
MR. ROBINSON’S PROFESSIONAL STATUS AND PERSISTENT PRONOUNCEMENTS ON INSOLVENCY LAW ARE THEREFORE IRRELEVANT.
ON MAY 9TH THIS YEAR, DESPITE A DETAILED WRITTEN SUBMISSION FROM THE DEFENDER, SHERIFF DAVID HALL WAS APPARENTLY UNAWARE OF THE TRUSTEE’S DETERMINATION.
THE CIRCUMSTANCES THEREOF ARE NOW UNDER INVESTIGATION.
If the evidence to suggest collusion between fellow bean counters Is no more than compelling, the following appears conclusive!
Greenock Morton Director Nicholas Robinson C.A. who operates as ‘Practiser’ of 4 Burns Drive, Wemyss Bay, repeatedly misinformed the Trust, the Trustee, and latterly the court on ‘Due diligence’, as evidenced by this extract from his incidental application to the court of June 2016.
Sheriff David Hall relied upon that information in reaching his decision on expenses on 9th May this year – apparently unaware that in November 2010 , as officially confirmed by the Accountant in Bankruptcy, Trust Deeds were formally recorded in the Edinburgh Gazette – then the first point of reference for interested parties.
NICHOLAS APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN A VERY NAUGHTY BOY INDEED!
NEXT TIME – THE COURT IS ASKED TO ‘RUBBER STAMP’ THE TRUSTEE’S DECISION BUT TOADMEISTER ROBINSON HAS OTHER IDEAS, WHICH COST JIM GALLACHER AN EXTRA £3K!
