The Trust makes the following statement:
The Trust has received a complaint from an existing Shareholder, Mr Mark Jordan, to the effect that he wrongly was prevented from standing for the Trust Board through the 2015 AGM process by the actions of the present Chair, Michael Green. The Chair denies this accusation.
Mr Jordan has indicated through correspondence that he intends to circulate his accusations and other potential defamatory statements publicly (and also accuse the Chair of threatening him with legal action, something the Chair is more than happy to defend his right to do given Mr Jordan's extensive history of complaints and accusations towards the Trust) and involve non relevant third parties (in this instance Leeds United Football Club). The Trust wish it to be known that we will follow all correct processes, as advised by Supporters Direct, to have the complaint fully investigated and that the Chair will not be involved in this process other than defending himself. However it is a completely different matter where possible defamatory public statements are threatened. The Chair reserves the right to respond accordingly if such statements accrue and the Trust reserves the right to defend the integrity of the 2015 Elections Working Group (independently chaired). Any action the Chair takes will be paid for by himself.
The Trust will be making no further statements on this complaint until investigation process is complete. The Chair will continue to perform his ongoing duties (unless advised otherwise).
