First Lawsuit Defending the Amazon Golf Club, Iquitos Peru
I filed my first lawsuit in defense of the 50 dispossessed investors in the Amazon Golf Club on December 19, 2006. That lawsuit was filed against Gerald Mayeaux, George Ryan Richards, and Sergio Gustavo Barja Flores, charging them with conspiracy to commit fraud, and for having taken actions against the public interests. Several other lawsuits (denuncias) have also been filed, but let’s start with the first one.
Specifically it refers to the Extraordinary General Meeting of the Amazon Golf Club that was allegedly held at the Yellow Rose of Texas at 8 p.m., April 7, 2006. According to the minutes of the meeting there were 7 members present. I was not personally notified of the alleged meeting and neither were 50 other investors. There is good reason to believe that meeting did not take place in the way the Public Register shows. There is good reason to believe that the minutes of that meeting were falsified and signatures forged.
The Public Register shows that Gerald Mayeaux, as liquidator of the Amazon Golf Club, declared that when the Amazon Golf Club was dissolved it had zero assets. He produced a notarized form, declaring zero assets, signed by his long time personal and business accountant, Jose Manuel Panduro Flores.
The Amazon Golf Club had a golf course we all paid for to carve out of the jungle, a club house, a tractor mower, a push mower, machinery, an electrical transformer worth $7,000, 12 sets of golf clubs, a jeep, golfing equipment, and a bank balance. To declare zero assets is a fraud.
As liquidator of the assets of the Amazon Golf Club, Gerald Mayeaux donated the assets that he previously swore not to exist to the recently formed Amazon Golf and Country Club, and that club is still using those assets today.
I demanded, as is my right as the plaintiff, that the defendants present all of the pertinent original books, documentation, bank balances, and list of assets from before the dissolution of the Amazon Golf Club. Gerald Mayeaux, Ryan Richards, and Sergio Barja Flores were given 72 hours to present those documents to the Fiscal. They have been in contempt of court for over 6 months for failing to produce the evidence that could prove their innocence or their guilt
As Liquidator, Gerald Mayeaux swore to keep in his possession all of the original books, documentation, bank balances, and records of the assets up to the dissolution of the Amazon Golf Club, for as long as Peruvian law requires. Now he says they are lost.
Those are the books, documents, bank balances, and records that could prove Ryan Richards, Sergio Barja Flores, and Gerald Mayeaux are innocent, if in fact they are. Of course those are the books, documents, bank balances, and records that could prove Ryan Richards, Sergio Barja Flores, and Gerald Mayeaux are guilty, if in fact they are.
Gerald Mayeaux, Ryan Richards, and Sergio Barja Flores hardly bother to defend themselves. Their defense is that they were saving the club from Mike and that it is none of my business. That I was never a member of the Amazon Golf Club. They claim there were never 60 members, only 7. They claim only the 7 officers of the board of directors that are listed in the Public Register are members. One of the books that Gerald Mayeaux swore to keep in his possession, but has “lost”, contains the list of all of the 60 investor/members, how much they paid for their shares, the date they joined and the number of their membership.
I know that some of you have been reluctant to get involved with the Golf War because you are not sure of all the facts. Here is one fact that I think we can all agree on. Bill Grimes is a member of the original Amazon Golf Club. Please make a comment below telling whether you think I am a member or not. As strange as this may sound, it could make a big difference. If I am a member then there are 60 members, as it should be. If I am not a member then there are only 7 members. That would clearly disregard the INTENT of Peruvian law, but we should not leave that to chance.
Scan a copy of your membership certificate and email that copy to either Mike or me, with a sentence stating how much you paid for your membership and please make a statement, either that Bill Grimes is or is not a member.
Thanks and best regards,
