Resources - Bugged meetings

If bugging the meetings could only prove one point, this is the one I would choose.

Chapter 13

From the beginning, I suspected that there was something wrong with the whole affair.

This was confirmed when I received the tip-off that the result was already known.

As a result, I took the precaution of bugging my own disciplinary hearing - as far as I can make out, I was the first person to do this.

I resisted typing up the transcripts simply because there was a lot of effort involved - my typing speed was not up to it - and the evidence could very easily be dismissed as irrelevant.

There were a number of significant pieces of information picked up by the tapes - one of them being simply the duration of the interlocutory bullying session by Bexley and Snaith which, once it had been revealed that the meetings had been bugged, forced the company into admitting that it had lied about it to their own solicitor, making her display the 'betrayed' look on here face that we saw so often at the industrial tribunal.

However, by far the most impressive piece of information was the fact that at the beginning of the tape for the second half of the original hearing, Snaith asks for the evidence back — something that he lied about a number of times — reinforcing the fact that the company denied access to the evidence thus denying natural justice.

“Well, they are working for Gazelles. Now, as long as they work for Gazelles, they're not working for anybody else and that can only be for the benefit of everybody else.”
