>Dear Mr. Davies,
>
>Thank you for your message.

>However, we have no reason to doubt the information which was given to us
by our contact person in Brussels. The information was checked and
double-checked, and, as we stated before, the Dutch Foundation against
Trafficking in Women can and will not allow itself to be associated with a
person or organisation which has been accused of such serious allegations,
nor with another organisation linked to the accused organisation/person.

>Dear STV,
>
>I have addressed most of the rumours in your message and in particular the
>fact that the project is not under investigation and nor has the EU
>requested any repayment of the grant.
>
>A simple challenge :
>
>Name the Dutch organisation that were named as a partner in an application
>without their consent.
>
>You can't because there is no such organisation !
>
>What really happened is someone who agreed to endorse the project fell out
>with our organisation and withdrew her endorsement after the application has
>been submitted. The reason for this was we wouldn't give in to her demands
>to break links with two other Dutch colleagues that she accused without
>proof of various misdeeds. She accused one of stealing from an EU project
>and the other of running her pro-sex work organisation on behalf of a
>"drug-dealing pimp".
>
>We refused to get drawn into petty and unsubstantiated rumour-mongering. We
>have never publically named this woman because we believe that it would
>pander to the mean spirited nature she represents and we have always sought
>to rise above the mean and petty.
>
>We wish others would do the same. Establishing human and civil rights means
>being able to rise above the hysteria, acting with equitable regard and
>seeking the truth.
>
>I am planning to visit Brussels to next week to finish with this affair once
>and for all.
>
>After that time we will name names.

>John Davies.
