Oopsy looks like Kim Dot Con has been caught in another lie, this time to media. Yesterday he tried to stitch his own lawyer up. Unfortunately for him Cactus Kate cynically believes Senior Commercial Partners at large law factories do not come up with ideas on their own and caught the fat lying German out with a bit of help from extended TV3 footage.
It did not ring true to me for senior commercial lawyers to be so proactive especially around the long summer break, in anything but billing, so I went back and re-read the statement of Simpson Grierson’s (aka Simply Gruesome) rather senior lawyer Mr Towers. He claims not to know John Banks just to have met him like most people have, briefly and superficially.
Dot Con under Patrick Gower’s provocation came out and clearly stated on camera –
“It was actually the idea of my lawyers to try and reach out to John Banks”.
This directly and quite clearly contradicts the sworn statement of his lawyer Mr Towers.
“Mr Dotcom asked me if I would contact John Banks on his behalf to seek assistance from Mr Banks to get Mr Dotcom additional mattress support to relieve the aggravation of his back injuries“
Dot Con “reached out” to Banks because he thought this money donated to a Mayor now bought special favours from a Minister. The media all know that, they just cannot yet say it. John Banks was not for sale, definitely not with his wealth for a paltry sum of $50,000 and suddenly their “friendship” ended.
