THE Cyprus Bar Association (CBA) has this week fined Paphos lawyer Emily Lemoniati €1,000 for misconduct after she failed to register her clients’ 2005 property sales agreement, then waited three years to amend, sign and file a new contract without her clients’ instructions.
Lemoniati’s clients, Scottish expats Andrew and Patricia McClay, complained to police in 2009 but it has taken the CBA’s disciplinary board until now to reach a verdict on the two charges of “showing conduct contrary to the advocates’ profession”.
The first, according to board president and Attorney-general Petros Clerides, was for failing to register the sale agreement for the McClays’ home, dated 25 October 2005.
The second was issued because, on or around 21 October 2008, Lemoniati used a power of attorney given by the McClays without their instruction, to issue a sales agreement of which they were not aware.
Board chairman Doros Ioannides said: “It is clear that the accused lawyer breached her clients’ instructions and breached the code of professional ethics and therefore we find her guilty on the said charge.”

He also said: “It is with great difficulty that we do not impose to Ms Lemoniati the highest sentence, that of the deprivation of her licence to perform her profession and we only impose a monetary fine that of €1,000.”
It is unclear why Lemoniati delayed the registration of the original document.
Andrew McClay, who has since returned home to Scotland, said: “The guilty verdict is out there but the sentence is disappointing. I took her to court because she’d broken the law and forged the property contract… that fine is not really very much is it?”
However, a defiant Lemoniati fiercely denied any wrongdoing, adding that that the McClays suffered no loss and that she was acting in her clients’ interests all along by using her power of attorney.
She told the Sunday Mail: “I simply don’t care (about the judgement) because I didn’t steal money or do anything unethical. I registered the contract with a slight delay…of a few months… only to safeguard my client.”
Her vehement denial also seems to have alarmed the board.
Ioannides wrote in the board’s meeting minutes: “It is with great surprise that we have noticed that what Ms Lemoniati stated, does not constitute mitigation or any other apology towards the Disciplinary Board but rather stigmatises the persons who made the complaint and which in any case, the Disciplinary Board found her guilty.”
He added: “What the Disciplinary Board expected from Ms Lemoniati, was at least to apologise to the complainants.”
Instead, Lemoniati said she would now appeal the board’s “unfair” decision and sue McClay for defamation, after he allegedly commented about her on a website based in the north.
McClay denied ever commenting on such a website about Lemoniati.
It is not the intention of Mr McClay to get justice.” Lemoniati said: “He just wanted to make a problem for me… He made comments on a north Cyprus website mocking me because I could not come (to a disciplinary board hearing) when I was pregnant… where is the respect?
Her name now appears on several websites, such as: www.ripoffreport.com, whatswrongwithcyprus.eucy.info, bewarepaschalicyprus.com/ and several chat forums, where details of her previous conviction, imprisonment and subsequent presidential pardon for driving offences can be found.
Moreover, she claimed to have more than 15 people ready to testify against McClay: “This is ridiculous, this person is insane. Maybe he has a personal issue with me. He does not care about his wife… he has a mania about Emily Lemoniati, every morning he wakes up and his intention is Emily Lemoniati.”
I will chase him until the day he dies… no matter what. I’m going to make his life a nightmare.
Asked if he would continue to pursue Lemoniati, McClay said: “I don’t think so. It seems like a complete waste of time and money and there’s nothing to be gained. It’s just more grief and hassle that we don’t need.”
“The guilty verdict is out there” he added.

MRISG Members are Liars or Not?

MRISG

MRISG

Since May, 2009 the MRISG members and organisers have been intimidated, abused, spied upon, libeled and received legal threats from MacAnthony Realty International Directors and lawyers, Carter-Ruck. Although the Mirror BlogFinancial Mail, Olive Press, The Phoenix, The Times, Diarmaid Condon and Guardian/Observer have taken up the story, no one has yet done a full and in-depth investigation of MacAnthony’s collapsed empire.  Could it be that when they do report on MacAnthony’s past property empire, they automatically receive legal threats for libel from MacAnthony’s pet Lawyers, despite the lawyers being fully aware of the truth.  It is worth knowing that not one of his spurious complaints has ever going to court or gone further than those initial empty threats. This situation has perpetuated because of the stupidity of UK Libel law and greed where corrupt commercial ventures are allowed to use people like Carter-Ruck to intimidate their victims to keep the corruption about their clients from the public and where the rich can buy their own justice: the greedy lawyers are always found face down in the trough.  In the mean time MacAnthony has been free to pushes his own self publicity about his mediocre football team Peterborough United and his questionable charity work and self declaration to being an Entrepreneur and false Philanthropy.

The MRISG will soon expose the conspiracy of silence and inaction demonstrated by the UK Media and expose both Carter-Ruck and Darragh MacAnthony for their contempt for justice, truth and greed for money.  Yet you will not see published anywhere cases where MacAnthony has lost court cases in Bulgaria, UK and Spain….  You run a search and you would believe MacAnthony to be a ‘Saint’ but the truth is far more sinister where corruption, money, body guards and his ego are his gods.  The upcoming Court Case against MacAnthony and his Directors in Spain should reveal the depth of only part of the contempt and corporate corruption overseen by MacAnthony until December 2010.  Yet will the UK mainstream media finally do their own investigations and reveal the extent of  that corruption?

There are 1393 members of the Private Members Forum. Of those members over 700 have never posted their reasons for being on the forum so remain locked out of the main members area despite confirming on application to join the forum they are a victim of one or more of the MRI Group or Lawyers. These 700 members are  broken down into three main groups:-

  • those who are too frightened to speak up for fear of being intimidated by MacAnthony,
  • those who are there to support the MRISG, including law enforcement agencies and Lawyers from around the world, and of course
  • MacAnthony spies who have lied and hacked to get sight of the forum content to try and foil any legal action and to close the site down.

Of the 700 members who have been given full access to forum 143 have posted details of the sums of money lost having had dealings with MacAnthony’s treacherous group of companies and lawyers.  The amounts lost are worrying but are believed to be far less than the true total losses inflicted on victims:

Worldwide MacAnthony is suspected, by the MRISG, to have exploited tax law, company law, criminal law and civil law to maximize his wealth and victimise ‘customers‘ yet to this date he has refused to address his ‘customer’s‘ complaints but instead has threatened, abused and intimidated them both legally and otherwise.  Yet he continues to defy the truth and claims to be the victim of a smear campaign… by MRISG Members, this website and a Spanish Lawyer Antonio Flores.  If there are so few disgruntled victims why not settle.  The answer is believed to be two fold:-

  1. There are thousands of Victims and not a handful, and
  2. MacAnthony’s very own inflated Ego and self belief.
