BIG INTERNATIONAL'S FORMAL
NOTICE OF INTENT
Due to action taken by the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry and statements
made against BIG International by The Treasury Solicitors during the last two weeks, our
humanitarian organisation has decided to take the following directive actions.
>From Friday the 22nd of May 1998 to Tuesday 26th of May 1998 we sent thirty two
representatives from different parts of the World to the United Kingdom. (All legally
Purpose of this action was to protect the humanitarian organisation assets named BIG
International from illegal action currently being taken by the British Government against
the Citizens of the United Kingdom.
Representatives of BIG International have removed all equipment assets which have been
paid for by BIG International to a safe location outside the Jurisdiction of the United
We have sold or exchanged all United Kingdom currency held. (Total two billion pounds
We have removed over seven billion pounds from shares of companies incorporated within
the United Kingdom.
We have closed all long term investments by BIG International into manufacturing
projects within the United Kingdom. The five year value of this investment into the United
Kingdom was twenty four billion pounds spread over thirty two new manufacturing
We are still holding United Kingdom Financial Instruments to the value of twelve
billion pounds which will be disposed of during the next three months.
We are still holding United Kingdom Banking Instruments to the value of seven hundred
million pounds sterling, which will be disposed of by the end of June.
All service contracts within the United Kingdom are now discharge dated 28th May 1998.
The accounts of Free Lottery holders, number range 15000000 upwards are now frozen, for
two months, pending the outcome of illegal actions taken against United Kingdom Citizens
by the British Government.
This number range will be replaced by a number range from another nation outside the
jurisdiction of the United Kingdom.
The holders of Lottery ticket number range 15000000 will still be included into the
lottery each week and prizes for this number range will be placed into the Players
WHY WE HAVE TAKEN THESE ACTIONS
BIG International received notification that The Secretary of State for Trade and
Industry within the United Kingdom with the assistance of the Bank of England, forced all
British Banks and Credit Card organisations to break Client Confidentiality.
All Credit Card orders and Cheques received from Players of the 15000000 number range
have been monitored by all British Banks and clearance houses and reported to The
Secretary of State for Trade and Industry within the United Kingdom. This isn't only an
infringement of United Kingdom Client Confidentiality, it includes the banking
confidentiality of all Players internationally who registered with the 15000000 number
range via the United Kingdom.
We will provide proof of the action taken by The Secretary of State for Trade and
Industry in relation to the breaking of banking confidentiality, from paperwork served
upon United Kingdom Citizens via The Treasury Solicitors at Queen Anne's Chambers, 28
Broadway London SWlH 9JS United Kingdom.
We have received over seven million pounds in cash for the 15000000 number range. These
Players are not affected in relation to banking confidentiality. Cash Players privacy is
affected by the FACT that the Royal Mail tampered with sealed and registered mail (proof
of this action is taken from documents served by The Treasury Solicitors and Royal Mail
employees who are Players of the Free Lottery and have made statements in relation to
actions taken by them during their employment with Royal Mail) under the instructions of
The Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, which breaks all international agreements
relating to Mail delivery. We have instructed Attorneys to prepare compensation claims
against the British Governrnent.
Two major newspaper owners are to be independently investigated, in relation to
articles printed within their publication under investigative reporting, which are well
known to the British Public. BIG International's Attorneys have prepared documents to
freeze international assets of these newspaper owners until compensation payments are
agreed between all parties in relation to inaccurate statements made by reporters employed
by these owners.
Unfortunately, these actions have and will bring retaliation by the British Government
against given British Citizens who have provided services to BIG International, and have
been named in papers served by The Treasury Solicitors. Substantial compensations packages
will be paid independently by BIG International to these individuals.
BIG INTERNATIONAL CALLS ON ALL OTHER HUMANITARIAN ORGANISATIONS DEALING WITH
INDIVIDUALS FREE RIGHTS TO JOIN WITH BIG INTERNATIONAL IN THIS FIGHT
We are given to understand that a number of organisations have been closed down
illegally by the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry within the United Kingdom, we
would like to hear from all involved within these organisations, especially the
Organisers, Directors or Owners.
United Kingdom Citizens who have trusted our organisation and became Players, will
understand why we at BIG International maintained such a high level of secrecy. We had
been warned about the type of illegal action the British Government would take against its
own Citizens, but really didn't believe it.
We realise that this method of communication could be closed by the British Government
to all United Kingdom Citizens, but due to considerable investment into telecommunications
we have structured alternative communication systems.
Due to illegal action taken by the British Government no future mail should be sent to
the UK address until further notice.
If you know of any other freedom organisations or humanitarian organisations that would
be interested in this situation, then please send a copy of this document to them.
