Summoning Quinn to justice

You know Tony that we are holding a virtual protest on Sunday 13. I will not be there. Perhaps you can get Marcus to take some video of proceedings we would love to put them up. Now you will likely expect me to be a proxy on Tuesday. I am doing a crash course on the Oil Business and company law. Seriously, I will be an expert witness in Co. Clare that day so you can relax. I do not want to mix my cult work with business, separation of powers and all that. Sorry I forgot you do not know about that.

However, I am putting up for your benefit the legal position in regard to your position if there is a summons for you. Up till now you have never been in an Irish court have you?

Watch your back. Weak links for you will be Dublin airport, when you leave Hick’s Tower, traffic lights and around the seminar. We were able to get people in last January so had full reports of the oil share sale in the middle of your seminar…naughty boy mixing Educo business with oil. Then you will be a sitting duck on Tuesday at the AGM or should I say non annual AGM.

SO REMEMBER WHEN YOU FEEL THE TAP ON THE SHOULDER YOU ARE SUMMONED!
