Venal Disses Bayrock Smears

5 Oct

Kazakhstan’s President Nazarbayev met his Russian counterpart Vlad Putin recently to discuss the latest developments in the Bayrock scandal on a recent edition of Gardening Dictators’ Question Time.

It is not clear whether Lord Venal featured in their discussions but he has seen fit to publish the following rather chilling communication from the legal firm representing the good Lord.  Kazaxia remains unsure why it is among the recipients, but hastens to publish it in full “for the avoidance of doubt”:

Statement re Lord Venal of Whissendine in the County of Rutland

For the avoidance of doubt, Shilling and Pence reiterates that its client, Lord Venal of Whissendine in the County of Rutland, had, has and intends to have no connection, whether business, social or otherwise, with Bayrock Group, Bayrock BV, KazBay BV or any associated companies. Lord Venal of Whissendine in the County of Rutland similarly had, has and intends to have no connection with Mr V. Khrapunov, Mr I. Khrapunov, Mr F. Sater or any of their relatives or known associates.

Shilling and Pence wish to remind all that any statement, insinuation, implication or hint to the contrary will be pursued to the fullest possible legal extent through the courts under English law in London or in any appropriate jurisdiction anywhere.

Shilling and Pence, London EC4
