Jed you wrote about that exclusion that it was proof of fraud in itself. However, the reality was actually worse, the IH Engineer was prohibited by Rossi from visiting the IH Plant. that's worth quoting from 29.19 (same as 30.19). this was to Vaughn.
"About the meeting of Tuesday, you obviously can come when you want, while Joe Murray cannot enter in the factory of JM because, as I have explained to Tom during the visit with Brian Mc Laughlin, I do not allow anybody, except for the personnel already reciprocally authorized, to approach the plant before the tests on course will have been completed."
Yes, I was upset to the initial revelation. By the time I learned of the 29.19 paragraph, "I do not allow anybody . . ." I felt more bemused than upset. It has gone beyond outrage into absurdity. Did he really think he would get away with that?!?
I felt the same way reading about Defkalion's shenanigans with the flow meter. I feel sorry for the DE investors and Gamberale, but I was thinking "did they really expect to get away with that indefinitely?" These people have no exit strategy. They just pile on one deception after another until the whole thing collapses. It reminds me of the movie "The Big Short."
