Spørgeskema om automatisk oplæsning

Otte emails mellem Mads Brügger og advokaten Varney Sherman viser, at alt ikke er som det fremlægges i 'Ambassadøren'.

Politiken.dk har siden bedt Brügger bekræfte autenciteten af emailene, men uden at kunne få et præcist svar.

»Nu har jeg kigget på mailene, og noget af det kan jeg genkende, og andet ser redigeret ud, så rent formelt kan jeg ikke bekræfte at de er ægte«, skriver Mads Brügger.

Vi præsenterer mailene på originalsproget med den første først.

Brügger optrådte under arbejdet med filmen under sit fødenavn Cortzen.

Dear Mr. Sherman, Dear Mr. Tijssen,

Please, I ask once again; what is the situation with my appointment? I have to travel to The Central African Republic soon, and I would really appreciate if I could go to Monrovia to settle the deal before arriving in Bangui. So I hope to hear from you soon.

All best,

Mads Cortzen, CEO, Cortzen Group

Gentlemen:

I have no news for you and I am sorry about that. Dr. Toga Gaywea McIntosh has not yet been confirmed by the Liberian Senate; he is still Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs.

I recall advising you that appointment of an Honrary Consul to a country is not an action that can be taken by an Acting Minister. Dr. McIntosh can only perform functions which are absolutely necessary to be performed until after he is confirmed by the Liberian Senate and receives his formal commission as Minister of Foreign Affairs.

This is the process and procedure in Liberia and there is nothing that I can do under the circumstances to expedite Mr. Cortzen's application to be Liberia's Honorary Consul to the Central African Republic.

Best regards.

Dear Mr. Sherman,

Nice to hear from you, Sir, although the message is quite dissapointing - because I did have the impression that Mr. McIntosh had been confirmed by The Senate already, which I now understand he is not. Can I ask if you have any idea about when we could expect The Senate to confirm the position of the minister?

Have a nice weekend.

All best,

Mads Cortzen

Subject: Re: FYI: McIntosh sworn in

Dear Gentlemen:

On the request of my friend, Mr. Wilfred Cooke, I agreed to assist Mr. Mads Johan Cortzen get an appointment as Liberia's Honorary Consul to Denmark. When he changed his mind and decided that he would prefer to be Liberia's Honorary Consul to the Central African Republic, I agreed to continue my assistance.

During the course of this I have personally taken both of you to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to meet two Deputy Ministers and the Minister Akerele. At that time we were advised that since Liberia did not have any direct relationship with the CAR and considering that none of its citizens were resident in the CAR, an Honorary Consularship was not justifiable. Nevertheless I continue my assistance.

When we thought that things were on course, Foreign Minister Akerele was relieved of the post and Dr. McIntosh was appointed as successor. Since then I have made efforts to get the application revived only to discover that none of the papers could be found.

I advised you and assisted in drafting a new letter to revive the application, which Mr. Cortzen sent and which was delivered to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the attention of Dr. McIntosh. This letter was delivered to Deputy Minister Demmah, who had shown significant interest in assisting us get the appointment for Mr. Cortzen.

I believe that I have done my best to get the appointment for Mr. Cortzen, but it would appear that Mr. Cortzen is too impatient for the bureaucracy that surrounds this process.

Accordingly, hereby terminate our relationship and wish to advise that I shall not give any additional assistance to Mr. Cortzen as of this moment. Please also be advised that funds left with me to be used for this process continue to be in my possession.

You will recall that I suggested that you take back the funds and let's do a "success fee" arrangement but you insisted that I keep the funds here in Liberia to facilitate the process and cover expenses if need be. Those funds are available at your convenience for disposition as you wish.

Meanwhile, please be advised that I leave Liberia on March 16 for Europe and the United States and will not be returning to Liberia before April 16. It might therefore be advisable that before March 16 you take delivery of the funds or instruct on what disposition you would want. Otherwise you will get the funds upon my return to Liberia in April.

Best regards.

Dear Mr. Sherman,

Please Sir, with all respect, I urge you; lets not terminate our cooperation when we are this close to reachng the target.

If I appear to be impatient its only because I have to plan for my future work in The Central African Republic, and having read in Liberian media reports that Minister McIntosh had been confirmed by The Senate, I figured the appointment was right around the corner.

Now, from your letter, I understand this is not the case, and I am willing to brace myself with patience - if needed. Also I am sorry if you feel I havebeen putting stress on you - this was not my intention.

So provided I can still count on your kind and professional assistance, which I very much hope, I will leave my funds in your possension until we reach a final conclusion - and lets make it a positive one.

Mr. Tijssen will be at your assistance if you need anything from us.

All best,

Mads Cortzen

Dear Mr. Sherman,

How are you, Sir? Fine, I trust. To follow up on your previous e-mail to me, I hereby write to inform you that I have given Mr. Abraham Swaray permission and instructions to collect my funds from your office as soon as possible - preferably within this week. I trust you will help to make this happen.

I remain a loyal friend of yours, and hope we will have the opportunity to work together again in the future - hopefully under less stressful circumstances. Looking back on the process so far, I also wish to thank you for your sound advice and professional assistance. It has been a pleasure.

Good luck with the campaign.

Kind regards,

Mads Cortzen, CEO, Cortzen Group
