Whoever you are, tarnishing my name and destroying my family and friends, we will soon find you. Rest assure that you can only hide for so long.
Our lawyers and police are now working on you. It is just a matter of time and every of your added comments, websites and others are safely kept until we see you in court and put you behind bars.
- For the last four years you have been harassing and bullying me and my family for something that I am not aware of.
- You don’t have the guts to contact me so whatever the problem was we could at least determine if I was responsible for it or not and resolve it.
- I have never heard of you nor I believe I have ever dealt with you.
- As the CEO and Chairman of many organisations I strategically guided many operations at the same time. You seem to have had a bad experience with one of them and I am sorry for it. If you don’t tell me who you I cannot fix it.
- In any case, we will find out very soon and then you will pay for 4 years of bullying.
The new legislation will provide penalties of up to 10 years in jail for bullying that could cause mental or physical harm.

Governments around the world are struggling to balance the right of free speech against the damage that disturbed people can do to the innocent over the Internet and at work.
