Mr Daley is a long-term resident of Kyrgyzstan and since April 2006 has been leading the negotiations with the Kyrgyz Government on behalf of Oxus with regard to the Jerooy Gold Project. Mr Daley knows the Kyrgyz Republic and its people very well. He has developed good relationships with Government officials and is a well respected member of the business community in Bishkek. Mr Daley is currently in a stable condition in hospital. The Company offers its complete support and hopes that he will make a full and healthy recovery. The Company would also like to report that on Wednesday 5 July 2006 it won a supreme court ruling upholding an injunction restraining the Government from pursuing discussions with Global Gold GmbH, a recently formed Austrian based company which is reported to be interested in acquiring the Jerooy Gold Project." HOWEVER THERE WAS NO DIVIDEND FOR DALEY Today 6th July 2007 is exactly one year to the day on the assassination attempt on Oxus Chief Negotiator Sean Daley. Four bullets were fired at Sean Daley with one bullet penetrating into his lower back. Daleys’ right kidney was destroyed and removed. After life saving surgery, the bullet today remains deep in his liver. Mr Daley spent months in hospital and now one year later is still under medical supervision. Not one of Oxus Directors visited their Chief Representative over the many months he remained in intensive care in Hospital or even visit his immediate family, wife or children to offer support. We understand a number of the Oxus South African board members have just tried to distance themselves from the shooting incident. The honourable and decent position would have been to offer Mr Daley some sensible compensation for such horrific injuries incurred whilst representing Oxus for the Jerrooy Gold mine in Kyrgyzstan. We understand The Oxus Acting Chairman in a meeting with what Mr Daley thought was to discuss compensation for the appalling injuries in April this year, stated this hideous shooting incident was a "industrial accident" and Daley was not entitled to any financial support from Oxus. Oxus always appear to be on the wrong side of High Court Judgements for various reasons. We wonder if Sean Daley will be taking them to High Court in due course? more at: http://www.tbandu.co.uk/cgi-bin/teemz/teem..._Gold_or_Pyrite Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
