I'm guessing their silence is because of some lawyer potentially taking it out of context to use against them. Anything anyone says can be misconstrued because of context or inflection, looks very different in black and white, or being read eloquently in court. It's hard remembering the banter you had with your mates last night, imagine the amount of people who would ask them questions, ducking them would be analysed one way, answering them another, I guess nothing will be heard in public 'til they're under oath.
Yes I think this may not be far off.
What people have to remember here in my opinion and before I continue I am not defending anybody or berating anybody. I didn't lose any money and have no bias or axe to grind and I merely use my own personal logic. FTP had a massive database of clients which would have covered every single sector of society across the entire globe. As with all cross sections then if the sample size is large enough then this brings into play individuals that are capable of taking steps that are beyond just harsh words and legal action.
In short I am talking about nutters with the proverbial baseball bats or worse and/or the people who have lost considerable amounts of money who are either capable of inflicting personal harm on both me and my family or know people who can. If this were me then I would personally find it very disconcerting knowing that vast numbers of people who I didn't know were very upset with me and any rational person would be in the same boat.
This gets us onto guilt or all variations inbetween total innocence and total guilt.......in short.....then every conceivable eventuality. There is not one single scenario that I can think of where individuals would not have made a statement by now if left to their own devices to do so. Totally innocent people would have done it as would totally guilty people even if it was merely for the intention to deflect heat and deter the "kneecap hate mob".
In short......the totally natural human response in all scenarios is to make a statement which is also the easiest thing in the world to do given that it can be done behind the anonymity of the internet and no questions have to be fielded after the placement of such a statement. The fact that this hasn't been done after all this time leads me to draw to the conclusion that they are being prevented from doing so for legal reasons unknown to me or by complexities within the situation that are unknown to me and us for that matter.
This is the logic behind the situation as far as I am concerned. Courts may ultimately find them guilty on all fronts but I simply cannot concur that silence is proof of guilt at this stage. There is simply far too much interpretation flying around in my opinion of what are supposed to be "facts". _________________ Poker columnist at www.poker.co.uk
