Lee tells David Levy that Suzanne Martin should not be allowed to run a company, but Levy seems happy with the arrangement. Lee pleads with David Levy to stop Suzanne, but Levy seems happy to allow Martin to carry on with her hate crimes against backers, ex colleagues and humanity in general.

Subject: Re: Your posting this morning on Facebook

David,

I am going to address this point by point, and I urge you to read very carefully and compare to other people that have crossed Suzanne and the allegations made against them. People that you have known for many years and I have had no dealings with - I am certain you will see patterns forming. Similarly, I have been told that Janko and Rai are also working with Andrews. I have been told a large number of people are working with Andrews - mostly people that have said something wrong about Suzanne. You also need to know that I am very laid back and loyal by nature, so don't tend to launch into random attacks for no reason.

I am absolutely disgusted at your recent behaviour and in particular at the diatribe you launched against Suzanne today on Facebook. I suspect that the pressure of the past 18 months has finally got to you, and that as a result you have allowed yourself to be bought off by the group of trolls who, for the past 18 months, have orchestrated the vile campaign of harassment and intimidation against RCL, its directors, and yourself. To have done so would be a treachery so ghastly that I can't think of words adequate to describe such a turnabout. Not content with withdrawing yourself from the fray, which I fully understand and agree with, you are now aiding and abetting the enemy. Have you forgotten that, not so long ago, those with whom you are now siding put an image of a tombstone online with "RIP Lee Fogarty" on it. How on earth can you now take their pieces of silver? Don't you have any self-respect?

Whilst it is true that over the last couple of days (following Suzannes attacks on me on fb), I have been contacted by some of the trolls and journalists, I haven't responded. This is systematic of Suzanne accusing people of working with him because they don't agree with her.

You say: "For the past 18 months, at least 5 times a day, 7 days a week, I have had phone calls from Suzanne Martin. On several occasions in the early hours of the morning, often hysterical." This is highly reminiscent of the way that Paul Andrews behaves, accusing others of what he himself is doing. I regularly speak to Suzanne many times a day, and for many months now the first call of the morning usually included her account of the calls that you had been making to her, often long calls, often late at night or in the early hours of the morning. Your respective phone bills will show who called who, how often, for how long, and when, but there is no doubt in my mind that it was you who instigated most of the calls between you, and it was you who needed and received the emotional support.

I agree - phone records will show the true account. However, I don't need support - I have Tanya. Suzanne has also contacted Tanya directly, often hyserical. I am well aware of your phone calls with her because she often rang me afterwards annoyed.

In fact Suzanne has provided a huge amount of support for you in various ways, including making the arrangement for Retro to pay for a CCTV camera at Tanya's home when Tanya become so worried by the actions of the trolls. Suzanne also gave you work for which you have been paid, as I understand it, around £14,000 during the past year. Suzanne has also been extremely sympathetic of the way you and Tanya have been treated by the trolls and has often expressed to me her fears as to how that might affect the two of you.

It was Suzanne that put the idea in Tanyas head that CCTV was needed, and she kept emphasiing how dangerous certain people are. Suzanne has also on many occasions instigated the trolling herself - allowing me to take the blame. For example, the court documents showing twitter trolls abusing Andrews & Melbourne - I have evidence that I am passing to Daniel that it was Suzanne running those accounts, and loving the fallout. She should at least of had the decency when it came up in court to admit it wasn't me. Yet I stayed quiet - not for her sake - for yours.

After some months of the almost daily reports from Suzanne about your calls to her, I began to think that RCL should simply stop its involvement with you. I discussed this possibility with Suzanne on a number of occasions but each time she supported you, knowing of your financial needs and that the RCL work and its revenue were important to you. So I allowed myself to be persuaded and you continued to be one of our team until recently. But despite all that support, the posting today is how you treat Suzanne. You should be thoroughly ashamed of yourself.

Similarly, I have had conversations with Suzanne where she has stated she will never work with you again, and this entire situation is YOUR fault, it's the 2nd time you've done this to her, and you've done nothing to resolve it. She blames you entirely. I have done nothing but defend you to her in all this time. She has confided in me that you are on anti-depressants and drinking far too much wine and incapable of rational thinking. If any of that is slightly true, she will have used it against you whilst faking friendship. She has stated that you don't know what is happening properly with the project, and all she needs you to do is sign documents. With that in mind, she has also stated repeatedly that I was to be added as shareholder on ping-pong and Janko removed. And to top that off, she has also stateed her intention to sue RLC (I believe she may have had conversations with the lawyers about this - you can check).

Suzanne's advice to you and to Tanya to close all your social media accounts was good advice. It is the advice we have been getting from the police and from our lawyers, in the face of what Andrews & Co have been dishing up. It was advice intended to make life less difficult for both of you, by removing from your sight what the trolls have been saying about you. The advice was very well intentioned. All of Suzanne's advice to you that I have been hearing about these past months has been intended to benefit you and Tanya.

Suzanne didn't advise us to leave social media. She rang and demanded it in a threatening manner. She was panicking. And now it turns out she may have known we were due to be abused again for something she may or may not have done. It is totally ridiculous to suggest that companies that rely on social media turn themselves dark to suit a 3rd party. I have NEVER in all of my conversations with Daniel been advised to do any such thing. Are you totally sure the lawyers and Daniel have said that? Or did you get it 2nd hand from Suzanne?

I can understand how difficult life has been for you and Tanya, and I can understand how such intense and vile pressure for so many months could affect your state of mind so much that you cannot now tell right from wrong. You need help Lee, and hopefully if you can get appropriate help you will be able to restore your mind to some sort of normality.

Another thing Suzanne does - suggesting anyone that disagrees with her has mental health issues. But bear this in mind - Suzanne has told Tanya on several occasions she has PTSD, and she's been institutionalised. If it is really true about the PTSD, she is in no state of mind to be running a company. Tanya works in mental health and has her own opinions as to whether Suzanne is fit to be running the company or not.

I would urge you David to go back and see how much you know for certain, and how much is from Suzanne. I don't even know if you were made aware of the emulation author I was in touch with in April that is experienced in installing his own emulator on devices, and quoted $8k for the license and offered to do the work - and have a working fw for testing 12hrs after receiving test hardware.

In the meantime you should cease immediately from attacking Suzanne and from siding and acting with the enemy.
