Still no word from the VSCP members, Fay Maxted and Lucy Duckworth. Silence from Pauline Carruthers too.

 Please note that TST is not running the Survivors Alliance but is a only one of many organisations, groups and individuals who have  associated themselves with the group.

Dear Pauline

Thank you for your response. Could you confirm if you are acting as the legal recipient for service of claims for damages against the Survivors Trust and its officers, or are you saying you personally will accept service of claims for damages against those members of the Survivors Trust who signed the letter to the Home Secretary on behalf of the Survivors Alliance, as your email does not make that clear? 

I have asked Fay Maxted, Lucy Duckworth and Andrew Lavery to let me know the contact details of their solicitors, but so far none of them have replied. 

Could you also let me know what the legal constitution of the Survivors Alliance is, and what, if any, legal capacity you act on behalf of the Survivors Alliance, or do you act only on behalf of the Survivors Trust?  

It would also be helpful if you could let me know who the insurers for the Survivors Trust and the Survivors Alliance are?

As you have stated that the Survivors Trust are not running the survivors Alliance, then it follows that any claim for damages would need to be served on the individuals who signed the letter to the Home Secretary, which contained the defamatory statements about me, and others, which caused harm that is a actionable. 

Could you therefore clarify for the avoidance of doubt exactly what the links between the yourself, Fay Maxted, Lucy Duckworth, Andrew Lavery and Ian McFadyen are, in relation to both the Survivors Trust and the Survivors Alliance?

Message to Mr Andrew Lavery

Dear Mr Lavery

I wrote to you recently by email, asking you to let me know who your lawyers are. You have not replied to me, so I have sent the following request to the Glasgow based law firm, Beltrami, who you stated in a recent press article are currently representing you and the new group you have formed, White Flowers Alba.

I met recently with Ben Emmerson and John O'Brien, who discussed with me the complaints they have received from you about me. I have also been made aware that you are making malicious and false allegations about me to a number of other people, not connected to the IICSA,  one of who has made a formal complaint to me about your conduct. 

I have discussed these complaints with Merseyside Police, and they have advised me that I should seek legal advice, which I have done.

Kind regards

Dear Sirs

Could you please confirm if you are acting for Mr Andrew Lavery and White Flowers Alba, as stated in an article published recently in The National?

If yes, could you also clarify if White Flowers Alba is linked to the White Flowers Campaign, which My Lavery is (or was) also involved with?
