Tresoro Mining Corp.'s former president, Rahim Jivraj, denies publishing two newsletters called "Public Company Fraud Alert" that targeted West Vancouver promoter Gordon Brent Pierce. He says that his involvement with the newsletters was limited to receiving digital copies in the mail, which he saved on his computer.

Mr. Pierce, who is suing Mr. Jivraj in the Supreme Court of British Columbia for defamation, says that the newsletters are highly libellous and contends that Mr. Jivraj published them. He complains that the newsletters falsely accused him of reaping hundreds of millions of dollars from innocent victims and of defrauding Tresoro investors. Readers also received the impression that he is a criminal and a fraudster, is dishonest, and ought to be imprisoned.

Mr. Jivraj, in an amended response to the suit filed on June 1, 2012, denies that he published either the first or the second newsletter. He says that on Feb. 1, 2012, he received a digital copy of the first newsletter in the regular mail, which he saved on his computer. Two weeks later, he received a copy of the second, which he also saved. He admits that he posted the newsletters on the Internet on May 7, 2012, along with other documents filed in court, and removed them two days later at Mr. Pierce's request.

Jivraj better have a good lawyer. The excuse he rec'd digital copies in the mail is ludicrous (who would send them to him and him alone?). That he was the only person who accessed all the lawyer's photos is also more that damning. Such a nitwit is a plaintiff lawyer's wet dream...
