I refer to my email to you dated 26 April 2000 in regard to the above who is
employed at your London Offices in Albermarle Street. My message informed you
that Steven Daultrey was struck off as a solicitor in 1982 and not reinstated to
the Roll. Soon after my notifying you about him, you changed his profile on your
web site to exclude the description of his being a “solicitor of twenty years
experience”. He still features regardless, and you did not respond to my
Given the ensuing statement, as it appears on your web site, would it inspire
confidence in your clients to know of Daultrey’s true credentials?
Mindful of the international regulations on the prevention of drug trafficking
and money laundering OCRA World Wide strictly implements our Risk Control
Whilst we respect and honour the confidentiality of our corporate clients, we
are committed to undertaking a full and thorough due diligence of both our
clients’ identities and the nature of their businesses. To this end, we need to
be fully appraised of both the rationale behind the establishment of the
corporate structure and its modus operandi. It is our obligation not just to
undertake a full and proper due diligence of our clients’ current needs but also
to monitor and ensure that their activities do not breech any international
regulations. Clients are required to execute management agreements with OCRA
World Wide. This formal approach to due diligence benefits both OCRA World Wide
and our corporate client base.”
In view of your being content to allow a man who lies to clients and embezzles
their money, and who connives with convicted fraudsters to continue in your
employ, I have notified the Serious Fraud Office and other interested parties.
If you require substantiation of my claims, contact the Office for the
Supervision of Solicitors, requesting a copy of the findings of the Solicitors’
Disciplinary Tribunal in the matter of Richard Donnellan, Daultrey’s employer as
recently as 1995/96.
