If you are are Dotcom watcher, last Friday was extraordinary.
On his morning show on Radio Live, Sean Plunket was making repeated calls for the “Rawshark”, the person allegedly behind the hacking of my emails, to stand up and take some sort of responsibility. Time and time again, Sean called on Rawshark to phone in.
And then something really unexpected happened.
Kim Dotcom phoned in for a live talkback exchange with Sean.
After being media shy and running away from reporters at his own party’s election launch, he suddenly made himself available to an interviewer who would not be offering Kim the usual PR platform afforded to him by the likes of the Herald or TV3.
During this conversation, Kim Dotcom made extraordinary claims.
1. That Tony Lentino did not pay the Coatesville Mansion rent while Kim was short of cash
2. That Mona Dotcom did not go see Tony Lentino about this issue while Kim was on remand in Mt Eden prison
3. That lawyer Jordan Williams, while being engaged for his professional services at the time via the company that employed him, unethically obtained a confidential document and later released that to me.
Point 1 was proven to be a bare faced lie about an hour later, when Lentino’s office provided Radio Live with a copy of a legal document, signed by Kim Dotcom, in which he agrees he owed Lentino a debt for the rent payments on the mansion. Lie one. Hard proof. End of.
Point 3 I know to be a lie. As the recipient of the document in question, I can rule out that Jordan Williams was the source of it. In fact, it was only during that radio show that I discovered Williams had any contact with Kim Dotcom at all, professional or otherwise. Lie two.
Point 2, at this stage, we have Tony Lentino’s statement to the contrary. With Kim in prison, it could hardly have been Kim who approached Lentino for help. He said, he said, but I’m going with Lie 3.
