Mr. Javier Antonio Salvador Cañadas, being a referee journalist, failed in keeping in total secrecy information that was strictly confidential and in doing so breached his contract with the company pertaining to the clause of confidentiality clearly stipulating non-disclosure for a period not exceeding five years after termination of employment. Mr. Javier Antonio Salvador Cañadas breached, by the same token, the journalists’ code of ethics in disclosing such deceitful and distorted facts cited above.
During his professional relationship, Mr. Javier Antonio Salvador Cañadas threatened, blackmailed and extorted the company, its CEO & President, by whom Mr. Javier Antonio Salvador Cañadas was employed, in filtering and publishing news that could affect the company´s image on a worldwide scale. He demanded a financial reward under threat and in failing to execute his demand, he would reveal and divulge personal and professional and strictly confidential information.
Such malicious and false news were finally published, causing very serious and irreparable damage to the company. Mr. Javier Antonio Salvador Cañadas committed as a result the offence of COERCION AND THREATS. In view of the above, Bio Fuel Systems and Mr. Bernard Stroïazzo-Mougin, presented in writing the formal lawsuit
on charges of COERCION AND THREATS against Mr. Javier Antonio Salvador Cañadas and any other crime that may arise,
providing enough evidence.
