Going by all the accusations, it wouldn’t surprise me if Aydin Coban is the guy on the right.
Today turned out to be very boring. The dumbass Dutch are still messing about, and the court case has been adjourned until 13:30 on Monday (which is a holiday in the UK).
If I can stop being lazy, maybe I’ll put together the contradictory Press reports that still have Amanda being tricked to flash for one person, that still get the number of victims mixed up and so on.
I’m permanently perpetually perplexed by the omission of this picture:
I think this must have been the very first appearance for Aydin Coban, simply because Amanda is so young. But we never, ever see this picture anywhere, even though every other picture of Amanda is quite luridly displayed in the usual mock-shock TV way. Oddly enough, this picture is supplied by someone called Dylan (Dylan Polo, perhaps?). The girl on the right is Bianca Nitoi, another hapless victim of Aydin’s cruel criminality. Or not.
I watched a TV documentary that featured Chris Fear. He’s worth checking out. I hate all forms of vigilante-type activity, but blimey, he gets the job done.
I’m still getting nowhere fast in my research. Marc Burrows, Dylan Polo, Marc Cameron….all there but with no information. Alice McAllister has disappeared, as has Austin Collins (or maybe I just haven’t looked hard enough). The Austin Collins character picked the names of a family – Shae Collins, Katie Collins and Austin.
Even weirder. The aliases include ‘brightonsbest1’ and ‘bestfamilyinbrighton’. I live in Brighton.
I wish I knew Dutch. All I know is that it looks like some guy called Henry was conned in a rent scam. I’m guessing that he gave a deposit to someone (allegedly Coban) only to find the address didn’t exist.
OK. Now for some more speculation. The Press originally said that Christian van Dijk had been fired by Coban because he didn’t want a ‘poppetje’, then it implied that there was some breach of trust. I’m not sure if C. van Dijk was making too much use of the Amanda Todd infamy.
Malewicz took over, but protested he didn’t have enough time, and the Press have also implied that it’s also a sort of protest against government cuts in courts.
Maybe both lawyers realise that they will definitely lose.
Whatever. It looks like Monday will see the choice made – whether to go without a lawyer, or postpone the court case even longer. And don’t forget – if it’s anything like English courts, there’s bound to be an appeal if it all goes wrong.
I’m still confused by the fact that if it truly involves people from the UK, USA, Outer Mongolia and Planet Mongo, why has no other country reported it at all? You would have thought that if there were 20 victims from the USA, someone would have picked it up in the news there? That’s why I’m thinking that all the victims must be Dutch. Trouble is, if each victim remains anonymous, the Press can say what they like. We’ll have to wait.
Have a good weekend.
