A new leak is added that shows David Levy and Suzanne Martin planned and executed a disability hate crime against Paul Andrews disabled wife back in 2017. Lee Fogarty was also used in a scripted conversation along with Jan Saggiori. Police officer TDC Levy was also mentioned in the leak.

Due to the disgusting nature of what was done by Dr David Levy and Suzanne Martin, the leak was not going to be mentioned on the news page of this site. However, a public facebook post from Paul Andrews himself stated that although the content made grim reading, the public deserved to know what was going on. For this reason, a news item was added to the site.

Paul Andrews

I don't normally now post on my own timeline things connected with the scum we have had to deal with for around 2.5 years now, as I try to leave my friends and family out of this madness, but in this instance as it is so personal I feel I have to share it with you all and let you see an insight of what we have had to deal with in this time period. In the backer support group people asked my permission before sharing this, and while it is both grime reading and extremely unpleasant reading, even more so when it is about you or people you love, it also does need to be seen by people to show everyone who these 'third parties' and what they really are to the world. Read it and make your own minds up.

To add insult to injury, Jan Saggiori posts on the democracy group, stating that his words were taken out of context and that "ill people" are not other peoples fault - only god knows:

Jan Saggiori the Swiss trust fund lunatic, aka Kim Jan Un

Some Serial Liars, when people talk about their public FB photos of Las Vegas from January 2016, publish out of context (my) comment, telling things that my comment never expressed/told. If they are ill, that's not my fault, neither other people. Only god knows the reason why. Perhaps if they would be nicer to others on this earth this would have never happened ?

Just when you think it couldn't get any more ridiculous...

Seems like someone at RCL doesn't like the truth being published online...
