Full Statement Released To The Liberian Media On Wednesday March 12 2014 in Monrovia By Mr. Len Lindstrom
But first, as most of you know, I, Len Lindstrom, President CEO of Liberty International Mineral Corp and the Liberty Group of Companies here in Liberia, held a press conference two months ago on January 5 2014 in which I announced that a well documented 618-page book had been published entitled "Corruption 101 - Liberia Style", which rapidly caught the attention of much of the Liberian population as it openly exposed and documented the illegal activities of numerous executives who have presided over affairs in the Resource Sector.
Hence, MLME and the government-appointed executives responsible, having already been adjudged by both the Lower Court and by the Highest Court in the Land of having engaged in illegal practices, were left with only one remaining tactic in their futile attempt to cover their guilt which was to do their utmost to intentionally vilify, denigrate and demonize Len Lindstrom in the hope that their unfounded and totally unsubstantiated accusations would create enough "smokescreen" to obscure or mitigate the sordid depth of their corrupt practices and to potentially sway public opinion against Lindstrom and Liberty as a means of creating confusion and debate amongst the general public in their futile attempt to salvage their tarnished reputations and empty assertions of innocence - which reputations were not tarnished by Lindstrom but rather by their own illegal activities.
SHANNON'S PREPOSTEROUS CLAIM TO SUE LINDSTROM
It may interest you to know, that despite the many libelous accusations so brazenly spouted off as fact by Dr. Eugene Shannon and his entourage of former Ministry cohorts and cronies, that I, Len Lindstrom
, have absolutely NO CRIMINAL RECORD, nor have I ever had any record of criminal activity, nor have I ever been charged by the police with any felony or misdemeanor, big or small - not in Canada, not in Liberia, nor in any other country - and I am not, nor have I ever been wanted by the police, not even for questioning concerning any matter, and I am not a fugitive hiding from justice or from Liberty's hundreds of shareholders from whom these Ex-Officials ridiculously state I stole millions of dollars, nor any of the other completely nonsensical accusations which these foolish MLME executives have so boldly and publicly made against me.
But the fact - and FACTS are all that really matter in this dispute - is that there was not a word of false accusation to be found on the internet about Len Lindstrom
until after the thriving company known as Liberty International Mineral Corp
started being grossly manipulated, coerced and extorted by money-hungry MLME
executives under their continual and completely unjustifiable threat that MLME
was going to cancel all our mineral licenses no matter what Liberty
did - simply because MLME executives were reported to already have other lucrative deals lined up under-the-table for the highly coveted Liberty properties!
Thus, it was the illegal actions of MLME
executives which took place long after Liberty
had already spent multiplied millions of dollars and years of aggressive non-stop scientific work in mineral discovery in Liberia, which created the few negative reports on the internet, most of which were written in blogs by a very small handful of people who did not even have the courage to use their own names, nevertheless, a few of which appear to have been justifiably angered investors who acting in frustration and fear of losing their investment and life savings and not understanding the depth of illegal activities taking place at Lands and Mines Liberia which were creating the problems for Liberty
, wrote short notes of nonsense under fictitious names - which hardly constitutes a credible source of fact.
Nevertheless, after the destructive and grossly illegal activities of MLME
executives had created the problems for Liberty
, which amounted to intentional economic sabotage, these same self-serving MLME executives obviously conspired together on how to use this completely unfounded internet nonsense as a means of telling the world that Lindstrom
is a shyster crook who embezzled millions of dollars and ran away with people's money and is a wanted fugitive who can no longer return home, and who came to Liberia under the guise of an international evangelist and tricked or deceived the government into giving him several mineral licenses.
UTTER NONSENSE THAT LINDSTROM
STOLE MONEY & BOUGHT OFFICE
Now, to further illustrate the complete absurdity of the accusations made by Dr. Shannon and his MLME colleagues, they state that I, Len Lindstrom
, not only embezzled millions of dollars and ran away with investor's money, and in another statement that I misappropriated $7.9 Million Dollars, which are totally ludicrous accusations, but the real dandy is that I also took $4,000,000 (Four Million United States Dollars) of investor money to buy myself a personal office building!
Furthermore, in complete contradiction to the many wild and crazy allegations spawned in the fertile imaginations of devious MLME ex-officials, Len Lindstrom
did not steal even $10 from the Liberty company, let alone the millions of dollars which these deluded MLME officials state as fact were embezzled by Lindstrom
before fleeing as a wanted man in hiding in Liberia, which is complete unfounded rubbish, slanderous trash-talk which amounts to intentional and malicious defamation of character punishable as such in a court of law.
Furthermore, while these same former MLME executives reportedly live in big fancy houses here in Liberia and many of them maintain their wives and children in America and fly back and forth to their families, and drive brand new luxury vehicles, which I am repeatedly told causes the vast majority of Liberians to seriously question where all their money comes from - while at the same time my family who are innocent victims in this continuing debacle, are within weeks of being kicked out on the street as the bank which holds the first mortgage has foreclosed on our home of more than 30 years, I drive a 16-year old 1998 Jeep which breaks down every second day, and I have to rely on a few very faithful and committed friends to sacrificially supply every dollar it has taken for me to stay in Liberia to fight gross corruption and government malfeasance and the latest dirty tricks and never-ending manipulations generated by MLME in order to win this battle on behalf of, and for the benefit of, our more than 700 committed shareholders, our employees and our creditors - and yet this boisterouspontificating group of swaggering, unduly-enriched wrong-doers whose illegal actions have been clearly and undeniably documented in the Corruption 101 book and which actions have also been deemed as illegal by both the Lower Court and the Supreme Court of Liberia, have the completely irrational, reckless and outright stupid AUDACITY to call me A CROOK, A CRIMINAL, A FRAUDSTER, AN EMBEZZLER, A THIEF, A FALSE PROPHET, A WOLF IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING and A SNAKE IN THE GREEN GRASS!
So ladies and gentlemen, next time these MLME Ex-Officials want to call someone a "PATHOLOGICAL LIAR" …. I suggest they do so while LOOKING IN THE MIRROR!
DOCUMENTED ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES OF EACH MLME INDIVIDUAL
Now, let us leave behind their list of totally ungrounded and unsubstantiated allegations, and for the next few minutes, deal with some very clear and indisputable FACTS, which we will begin by first remembering who these former executives are who have made such preposterous and slanderous claims against Lindstrom
- and see, if perhaps, it is actually the character and moral conduct of these Ex-Officials of Government of Liberia that should be the subject of serious investigation and punitive action:
"…if you cause too many problems for us, Rev. Lindstrom
could simply disappear, SOMEONE COULD PUT SOMETHING IN YOUR DRINK, AND THERE WILL BE NO MORE REV. LINDSTROM" - in other words POISON Lindstrom with something like Liberia's infamous "Alligator Gut" bile which is fatal with no natural cure - in the event that I continued to pursue the Liberty case in court and created too many problems for MLME
and Government of Liberia - the details are in the book and further substantiated by numerous email reports made as a regular part of business including to the Canadian Government.
The spokesman for the MLMEnews release further states that Lindstrom
"…alleges we (MLME)attempted bribing his
Nevertheless, the combination of a well-known, highly charismatic Christian evangelist with a world-wide miracle ministry at the head of the company, mixed with gold and mineral exploration, large tracts of highly potential West African properties, hundreds of Christian investors of whom the vast majority were long-time friends of Lindstrom
, and a gala celebration filled with multitudes of happy shareholders instead of the usual cut-and-dried poker-faced meetings of most companies who would actually prefer their shareholders stayed home - and let's not forget the moonlight cruise- all made for the kind of story that a reporter can put a
