Patrick Visser, the head of Silva Tree Panama, just wrote us an email (in Dutch, translation to follow) announcing that his lawyers will start legal procedures to have what we wrote about him and his forestry outfit removed. We don't know exactly what that means, or where. Nor do we really care that much.
After all, what we wrote was almost entirely quoted from other sources openly available on the web, notably the Christian Science Monitor and a website called the "ripoff report". Is he starting legal procedures against those as well? Not likely. Schoolyard bullies like Visser are cowards deep down, and never dare to take on anyone bigger than themselves. Wokka wokka, more of the same, bunch of lowlifes having a circle jerk, what else is new in Panama - been there, seen it, and we won each and every time.
Visser in his latest email referred to a "legal opinion" available on his website, here. It says that he has, according to the law firm that wrote it, no criminal record in Spain. But nobody said he had. What has been claimed by several people on Ripoff Report is that they were swindled by him and that he left Spain before the police could complete its investigations. In other words, this "legal opinion" does not contradict what others have said or what was quoted here.
Same goes for a number of other things he wrote us - all very interesting without a doubt, but none of it applies to what we published earlier.
But hey! If this guy wants to shoot himself in the foot, who are we to stop him? Go for it, Patrick, ouwe prutsert!
