Re: Irving v Penguin Books Limited and Lipstadt
We write further to your facsimile letter of even date.
We observe that despite our client's concerns, your client insists upon the continuing involvement of Mr [Tobias] Jersak who apart from the attempt to "remove certain documentation held in the Trustees' custody" [DLA's letter of 13th February 2004] on the occasion of his first visit, also left the Collection in a state of complete disarray. No doubt you will have put Mr Jersak and his colleague on strict notice of the conduct required.
Contrary to our earlier advice, Mr D++++ M++++ will now represent our client on 24th and 25th March. Consistent with your letter aforesaid, he will be in attendance at Regal House at 2.00pm tomorrow where he will liase with representatives also of the trustees and the insolvency agents.
