One For The Legal Eagles

Recommended Posts

Suppose X and Y are business partners about to sell the company they have built together to investors.

X is a sociopath, bearly able to contain his criminal compulsions.

In an attempt to sideline his partner he knowingly makes false accusations to the authorities that Y committed the serious crime A.

Y does not have a good grasp of the law and is scared.

X allows Y to endure under the false allegations, wilfully causing injury to Y, emotionally, financially and reputationally.

Y attempts to concilliate with X.

X tells Y he will withdraw the allegations for a payment.

X chooses not to notify the authorities of the negotiations taking place, leaving them under the impression Y is still wanted for crime A.

What crimes has X committed, if any?

Slander and blackmail. Y will need good evidence.

I suffered a very strange case of extortion a few years back, with a slightly mad girl asking for money with menaces, extortion. She did it by email! I took the increasingly threatening emails to the police and they took it very seriously and paid her a visit.

The payment to X would have been better made to another psychopath, Z, to make the management of company C = Y-X

Sorry to hear that someone you know has to deal with this sort of £$%^
