"It has been brought to my attention that a certain individual is posting inaccurate information about me, our organization and the work we do. Some personal grudges between this person and myself have no effect on the work of WFFT. It is disappointing to see she has made this in to a public issue.

I have not e-mailed, called or send messages in any other way over the last 4 months. If she claims that I did do so, that i was abusive in any way, she is making that up or has been misinformed.

I am not hiding behind other names or persons, if I have something to say I will do so directly. WFFT has collected info on the tiger temple over the last year and finalized a full stripe pattern analysis. Other orgs also did work on the TT issue, but one org in particular seems to feel that this cause is their own 'pet' project."


Edwin Weik posted this because Sybelle Foxcroft outed him as David Hargreaves in retribution for a public attack he made on her 'stealing the show' over the Tiger Temple. It is very carefully worded as would be sensible with a court case already hanging over his head but he was plagiarising information from her cee4life website as well as using photos without permission on tigertempletruths.org. He was also using photos that belonged to me and I had emailed the site and asked for their removal but they wouldn't comply claiming the photos were taken by their investigators.

I contacted Sybelle about it and advised her that I had found images of hers as well as articles that were clearly copied and tigertempletruths were claiming the material was their own. I was trying to find out if she was the author of the website so I could have a dig about image use but she was most indignant about the site and wanted nothing to do with it.

It lead to my writing the page Legal action where I made all kinds of allegations about Edwin Weik's honesty and though I am subject to the same laws as him in Thailand he has not made a complaint to the Police or sought an injunction. The reason is simple, he publicly called me a liar and a fraud and told several lies that I can disprove, that means if he makes a formal complaint he will end up once again back in the dock.

As a result he now found himself in a very special place with SF outing him and he has a hopelessly uncontrolled temper (unless he is face to face when he becomes an absolute coward) so he did what he always does; went on the offensive. So having invented a website and an Englishman living in Norwich with fingers in Kanchanburi Thailand, which to be honest was a weak storyline, and having used it to bolster his defence in court, he now had to defend something and someone that wasn't real. But the lies got bigger and bigger until he made the mistake of contacting me from wfft. And lo and behold the emails from both wfft and tigertempletruths were from the same sender. I was also able to get the ftp log from the host for TTT and had pretty compelling evidence that Weik was Hargreaves and so told Sybelle she was correct in her suspicions.

Sybelle, I believe emailed Weik with her evidence and he knew at that point he was in trouble, so he posted a pre-emptive message. The only problem is that convinced everyone who had seen SF's outing of Weik/Hargreaves that SF was correct and the underhanded lies that Weik had told all the organisations that were assisting tigertempletruths.org was not at all appetising. Weik ran for cover until it would all blow over. But if the Temple cannot be forgiven for past misgivings then I'm afraid neither can I forgive Weik.

So here is what is wrong with this claim by Weik:
"It has been brought to my attention that a certain individual is posting inaccurate information about me - He means Sybelle Foxcroft and she told him herself directly our organization and the work we do. - Yes because you were stealing her work. Something she had worked on for six years. And you thought nothing of taking it and claiming it was your own. Some personal grudges between this person and myself have no effect on the work of WFFT. It is disappointing to see she has made this in to a public issue. - That's because you left her with no other option because you would not remove the photos and articles on tigertempletruths.org

I have not e-mailed, called or send messages in any other way over the last 4 months. - Yes you did as is proven in my article called Legal action. If she claims that I did do so, that i was abusive in any way, she is making that up or has been misinformed. - Well that's just a downright lie but you are hoping it will blow over given enough time.

I am not hiding behind other names or persons, - Yes you are because you are David Hargreaves as we have proved beyond doubt.

if I have something to say I will do so directly. - You are too cowardly to do that Edwin, you only post emails and Facebook messages.

WFFT has collected info on the tiger temple over the last year - No they didn't, all the information you gathered was assembled by someone else.

and finalized a full stripe pattern analysis. - That is an outrageous claim. WFFT and yourself do not posses the skills to analyse tiger stripes. At the time you needed that analysis for your defence Sybelle Foxcroft was teaching me how to do just that so she used the photos for your defence as models for me. So as you have probably guessed, I know and so do several other conservationists who did that analysis. And it was not you nor the CWI who also asked Sybelle if she would help. I advised her to tell you and your lawyers to **** off but she isn't as heartless as you. You can't even find it in your conscience to thank her for stopping you being imprisoned or massively fined.

Other orgs also did work on the TT issue, but one org in particular seems to feel that this cause is their own 'pet' project." - One org is cee4life and the pet project is exactly what it is. There was no evidence against the temple until she came along, only suspicion, she spent nearly a year there studying, spent two years writing her thesis, and five years turning it into a book. Nobody else has put any serious effort into the temple apart from myself. I would say she owns it wouldn't you?
