Patrick Visser of Silva Tree has filed a criminal defamation complaint against us for an article based on an earlier publication in the Christian Science Monitor and the Ripoff Report. Apparently, he has taken advantage of an offer made by convicted serial fraud artist Monte Friesner through the website of Don Winner to provide free legal service to anyone who wants to file a defamation complaint against your reporter (an offer that is illegal under Panamanian law, if anyone would care). Yes, dear reader, Silva Tree's legal affairs are now being handled by the in-house lawyer of Monte Friesner's corporations.This must be such reassuring news to those who have business with Silva Tree and kept sending us worried emails.
What Don Winner and Friesner are doing is simply trying to pile on as many legal cases against your Bananama Republic and its editor as they can, and they don't care if these complaints have any merit or not: The purpose is harassment, a kind of legal terrorism carried out by a group of hustler jihadis who see their rogue schemes affected by the light of day. They must all be pretty desperate.
