Woodstein @ 17:41, thanks for that. Oh to see the GASL and RTC in the same room at the same time. Let’s all head to Plettenberg Bay.

Time for Scots Government to Take Bull by the Horns
GoosyGoosy, I love your ability to come up with apparently off-the-wall scenarios in the dark dealings of the various players in this whole Rangers fiasco, which turn out to be pretty close to the truth. I also share your anger but in this case I hope that you’re just plain wrong.
A few points:
1. It was announced in January that Topping was standing down.
2. There are reps from Celtic, Hibs, Hearts and Partick Thistle currently on the SPFL Board -all currently financially sound and not dependent on any Rangers/OF-driven commercial imperative. 
3. The Raith Rovers rep is hardly likely to be beholden to any Rangers’ interest post McCoist’s “Who are these people?” nonsense. He was one of the tribunal members involved.

I’ll take your word for that Giovanni.

GoosyGoosy,
If what you say is correct, fans/supporters should look at these people, who are the current directors of the SPFL, as recorded at Companies House.
BLAIR, Iain Joseph BUDGE, Ann Cochrane Cook Wallace DEMPSTER, Leeann DONCASTER, Neil Antony DRYSDALE, Eric Wilson FERGUSON, Kenneth William LAWWELL, Peter Thomas MAXWELL, Ian Gardner MCCLUSKEY, Karyn TOPPING, Ralph Jamieson
I’d reckon that most people would think that there’s some quality in that group, maybe some independent thinkers? However, if they collectively fail to see the need for transparency and evidence of being seen to have applied the League’s rules without fear or favour in respect its dealings with RFC 2012’s improper player registrations, the game’s screwed.

I seem to recall that part of Dave King’s settlement with the South African Revenue Service was a  requirement that Mr King’s family repatriate business assets held overseas into South Africa. Has anyone any insight into how this sits with NOAL being BVI-based?

EJ, I’ve no cause to doubt you or Hearts directors or the company auditors. It’s a fact though that people will speculate on these matters, often getting things completely wrong, intentionally or simply through ignorance.

blu December 20, 2017 at 11:16 There is an element of truth in Tangoed’s assertion about the need for transparency though – I’m sure there’s plenty speculation on Jambos Kickback as to the identity of the mysterious benefactors. ===================== There is indeed plenty speculation on Jambos Kickback about the benefactor(s).
A couple of well informed posters have all but confirmed that the money has come from partners in an Edinburgh investment company.

EJ,
I’m sure that you and others closer to the club will have a very good idea who these people are but as long as the club is asked to keep their identities private there will be speculation and aspersions cast from the east of Edinburgh and further afield.

I’ll decline from commenting further, the majority of members here seem to think it is acceptable to conjecture that Hearts are being funded by the proceeds of crime.

For the avoidance of doubt Homunculus, I agree with your challenge to Tangoed – his subsequent response confirms it is simple speculation, possibly mischievous. My question was more focused on what might be considered as money laundering, tangential and less important than your challenge.

Homunculus, I don’t think that money laundering was referred to by Tangoed, no doubt they’ll respond to fully explain.
