Statement 7 From BIG International
RELATING TO MR GRANT
The Financial Mail on Sunday's headline recently written by Tony Hetherington was:
"Mr Big Cheese of Gouda is wanted by the fraud squad"
This statement is in response to the large number of supportive responses from around
the world for Mr Grant's actions. Mr Grant has proven that there isn't law that protects
the individual within the United Kingdom, because now a warrant has been served against Mr
Grant by the SFO (Serious Fraud Office). This is not because Mr Grant has committed a
crime, but due to the officers at the SFO misusing their powers to COMPEL a witness to
answer questions which they know cannot be answered by the person being interviewed.
This shows just how desperate the British Government are. They know that Mr Grant will
not stop his fight against establishment corruption and is prepared to go to prison to
expose their corruption against humanity.
Since Tony Hetherington's article and the illegal action taken against BIG
International within the United Kingdom, we have learned the value of Mr Grant's research
and documents entrusted to BIG International. In fairness to Mr Grant, he did warn BIG
International as to what the British Government would do, we just didn't believe him at
the time. We did not realise how corrupt given systems within the United Kingdom have
become and how seriously this corruption is affecting all the world's citizens. We didn't
believe or we didn't want to believe.
Copies of all messages to Mr Grant are being forwarded to him. BIG International thanks
all those who have written.
We believe that Tony Hetherington is served with the job of discrediting Mr Grant
within the media by the SFO, to ensure that it is impossible for Mr Grant to obtain a fair
trial within the United Kingdom.
What Tony has not mentioned in any of his articles, is that he met with Mr Grant at the
High Court of Justice in London. At this meeting he asked Mr Grant several questions, all
of which were recorded. The tapes are safely with BIG International's legal department and
copies are with the European solicitors representing Inner Sanctum.
The photographs of Mr Grant in Tony's latest and previous articles were taken at the
same time outside the High Court of Justice while Tony and Mr Grant were talking. The
photos were obviously arranged by Tony.
Now to the nitty-gritty of the facts which are as follows.
Mr Grant has been fighting the British Government and Financial Institutions since the
age of fourteen. During his early life, Mr Grant made a number of openly admitted mistakes
of action to achieve his goal of exposing specific corruptions within the United Kingdom
Mr Grant openly reported himself to the UK's policing authority for those mistakes,
expecting and believing the corruption he had found and fought against would be exposed
during his Crown Court trial. Sadly, Mr Grant found that the Crown Court refused to allow
the evidence into court. The UK police were instructed not to continue their investigation
into a number of British Financial Institutions including his then employer.
All of what Mr Grant attempted to expose then has now been proved. Currently, the
British Government is still allowing the organisations concerned to cover their tracks.
They are Lloyds of London, Prudential, Dixon Photographic and British Government
departments related to the British State Pension, to mention a few.
But Mr Grant went further. He named in reports the establishment figures behind the
theft of massive amounts of money from the British public and how these establishment and
institutional thefts affected individuals all over the world. The UK government responded
by increasing the amount of time before certain government papers would be released for
public inspection. This ensured that the individuals responsible would either be dead due
to old age, or too old to stand trial for their actions - hopefully Mr Grant would go
Mr Grant is not in Holland but he was once employed there to complete a specific task
for Dixon Photographic. According to our records Mr Grant is actually in Switzerland,
recovering from nine years of constant harassment by the United Kingdom authorities since
his return to England in 1989. We can confirm that a copy of Mr Grant's medical report was
given to the magistrates court which the magistrate chose to ignore. This is hardly
surprising since all have confirmed it is a court controlled by the police via the court
We have a recorded copy of that day's court proceedings when West London magistrates
issued the warrant for Mr Grant's arrest. It must be noted that Mr Grant was never served
with notice of appearance at West London magistrates court. The court, via the Clerk of
Court, was notified of Mr Grant's location and current health in writing from the medical
centre in Switzerland.
Mr Grant has never been a spokesman or representative of BIG International. Mr Grant
freely supplied BIG International with his complete records since 1956, relating to the
British Government's and financial institutions illegal actions taken around the world.
There is a warrant for Mr Grant's arrest which is totally unrelated to BIG
International and there could possibly be another warrant for Mr Grant's arrest by the
High Court of Justice. In both cases Mr Grant made it perfectly clear that he wished to
plead not guilty and requested a trial by jury.
In both situations Mr Grant has been refused a trial by jury, because this would give
Mr Grant the opportunity to question in public many establishment figures. The British
Government had hoped that they could quietly take Mr Grant to prison. To prove this, let's
look at the charges laid against Mr Grant by the Establishment.
At the High Court of Justice, Mr Grant is accused of breaking a previous order against
him due to his then involvement with BIG International.
Mr Grant's involvement with BIG International was first to supply BIG International
with a lifetime of research into British Government and Financial Institutions corruption
against British Citizens. Originally Mr Grant considered and was offered the master agency
with BIG International, but was warned by the DTI that should he continue to support BIG
International, actions would be taken against him and the organisation of BIG
In the High Court of Justice, the Registrar ensured the action against Mr Grant when
the statement of "what appears to be" was accepted by the Registrar, with no
proof and no evidence being provided by the DTI to support their claims against Mr Grant.
The High Court of Justice wanted no public, no jury or reporters present during this so
called trial of Mr Grant, with the verdict finally being given by one judge to imprison Mr
Grant. The High Court of Justice at the DTI's insistence, even refused to give Mr Grant
time to prepare his case or the required court time to enable Mr Grant to call the
required number of witnesses. No wonder the British Government wishes to stop trial by
Mr Grant made it perfectly clear that he was prepared to stand trial by Jury, but not a
closed court. We at BIG International believe this is a British Citizen's Right.
Now to the SFO's Warrant reported in Tony's article:
West London Magistrates Court is recognised in all UK legal circles as a Police Court.
That is why this court was used instead of the court near to Mr Grant's home.
Firstly, Mr Grant was never a member of Inner Sanctum. He never personally received
money from Inner Sanctum. Mr Grant did form the Inner Sanctum Defence Centre in the United
Kingdom to protect the individual rights of all members of Inner Sanctum and has never
stood down from this role.
Mr Grant's stand against the DTI and the Bank of England has certainly caused
embarrassment to the British Government regarding their illegal actions against British
Citizens. He was offered payment to go away and refused any such payment.
BIG International was aware of Mr Grant's interview with the SFO from day one, and we
arranged payment for sophisticated devices to be placed upon Mr Grant's person which
enabled us to record all interviews, both in the interview room and outside.
From inside the interview room we have copies of all interview tapes, sixteen tapes in
total. Anyone can have a copy of these tapes at a cost. We have also had the official
tapes transcribed. Again, copies can be obtained at cost. These tapes clearly show the SFO
trying to stop Mr Grant's actions against them.
The most interesting tapes are those taken outside the interview room which clearly
indicates the senior officer's actions. The senior officer stated to Mr Grant that he
"intended to make this personal", and he believed that Mr Grant was a traitor to
the establishment which was there to protect United Kingdom Citizens from having
information which they couldn't possibly understand.
On Mr Grant's behalf we made three separate complaints to the Police Complaints
Commission. No action was taken by this department.
On Mr Grant's behalf we made three separate complaints to the Banking Ombudsman. No
action was taken by this department.
So what is the charge?
The Serious Fraud Office which has powers to COMPEL witnesses to answer questions and
produce documents, ordered Mr Grant to hand over bank statements that MIGHT show where
investors money went.
All the documents that the SFO compelled Mr Grant to hand over were already in their
possession, including details of every personal account held by Mr Grant.
How do we know this? When the British authorities were given illegal warrants to raid
the Inner Sanctum Defence Centre, illegally attended by the Inner Sanctum Receivers, they
removed every single file, including all details of Mr Grant's accounts. A Romford Police
raid at Mr Grant's Mother's home and his accountants, removed every single piece of Mr
Grant's personal paper work, computer systems and many private belongings which have never
From all these records and collected paperwork they haven't, in four years of
investigation, placed one serious arrest charge against Mr Grant because, quite simply,
there isn't one.
Mr Grant did not not need to be COMPELLED, because all of his actions are totally open
and have one aim, to stop corruption and the removal of British Citizens Humanitarian
Mr Grant has never failed to attend any British Government interview, Police or
otherwise. Mr Grant has never failed to stand up and admit responsibility or arrest
himself when he has done something wrong. At least Tony Hetherington within his article
made one truthful statement, which was "Mr Grant ALLEGEDLY refused to answer the
The tapes taken during the interviews with the SFO show differently. Mr Grant requested
access to the files removed, so as to answer questions accurately. This is from the SFO's
own tapes. He was refused and therefore couldn't answer the questions.
When Mr Grant's solicitor requested these defence papers in court, the judge said to
him "it sounds like a fishing trip". The judge denied Mr Grant access to crucial
defence paper work and personal paperwork taken during illegal raids at both his mother's
home and the Inner Sanctum Defence Centre.
In this case, all Mr Grant requested was a Jury and time to prepare a correct defence.
It was refused. The UK Establishment know it will open up cases which will prove financial
corruption against British Citizens, committed by various British Government Departments
and the Financial Institutions.
It was hoped that this action by the SFO would stop Mr Grant from achieving his goals
in life, by basically shutting him up in prison for six months to a year, in the hope that
the illegal actions taken against Inner Sanctum could finally be placed into the lost
archives of establishment corruption.
Tony Hetherington's article isn't worth the paper it is printed in, more than likely
under instructions from the establishment. Tony, for the establishment, has attempted to
link Mr Grant as the mastermind behind both Inner Sanctum and BIG International in the
public media. In defence of Tony, it is the first time we have seen one of his articles
written without actual personal commitment. The article shows Tony to be unsure. In fact,
our own experts believe it's under Tony's name but the information input is being
Just one point in Tony's article which really affects BIG International. We actually
gave you the date and the period it would take to re-open the 15000000 number range, but
Tony or his advisors seem to wish to connect it to what Tony calls Mr Grant's
Mr Grant hasn't disappeared. He simply didn't go and he has now achieved, thanks to
Tony, public awareness of the actual situation and will continue to fight the corruption
of British Citizens Human Rights. Mr Grant is a resolute and remarkable man. With the
total weight of the financial institutions and government against him, they still haven't
cracked the mental agility of Mr Grant, even in bad health.
Friends and family are assisting in the protection of Mr Grant's mother who has always
wanted her son to give up the fight and accept that the fight is impossible when alone. Mr
Grant's mother may now understand the worldwide support for her son from letters received
in support of her son's actions. We are not talking from just one culture or faith. Mr
Grant appears to be accepted by all in relation to his fight. The letters from France have
been most encouraging offering a new home and protection of Mr Grant and his mother there.
BIG International Freedom Through Service
Below is the full article as featured in Financial Mail On Sunday - 16th August 1998.
Big Cheese of Gouda wanted by the Fraud Squad By Tony Hetherington 16/08/98 A WARRANT
has been issued for the arrest of Raymond Grant, named as the 'Mr Big' ringleader behind
the Big International illegal lottery and investment company. Grant, who also calls
himself Ibrahim Grant, failed to appear at West London magistrates' court last Tuesday in
connection with Inner Sanctum, an earlier pyramid scam. Inner Sanctum, exposed in
Financial Mail three years ago, promised to turn £125 into £1,000 within a year, or
£3,300 into £60,000 within five years.
Money was supposedly invested with a company called Swiss Investment Bankers, based in
central London. But neither Inner Sanctum nor Swiss Investment Bankers was authorised to
accept deposits from the public, and were closed after legal action by the Department of
Trade and Industry and the Bank of England.
The Serious Fraud Office, which has powers to compel witnesses to answer questions and
produce documents, ordered Grant to hand over bank statements that might show where
investors' money went. It says Grant had accounts in the name of Inner Sanctum at the
Trustee Savings bank near his home in Romford, Essex, and at the Bank of Ireland in
Charleville in the Irish Republic. He also operated three accounts under a different name
at Barclays bank in Romford.
Grant allegedly refused to answer the SFO's enquiries or to produce statements or
documents connected with his bank accounts and he was charged with withholding evidence.
He was released on bail pending last Tuesday's court hearing.
Promises His disappearance coincides with the relaunch of his recent money-making
scheme, Big International. The High Court ordered the firm to be closed last month after
hearing evidence that it had recruited more than a million people worldwide with promises
of free tickets in a lottery with a top weekly prize of £25 million.
Ticket applicants were invited to invest from £60 to £60,000 in several schemes, some
said to yield more than 300% a year. They were also offered offshore bank accounts paying
interest at 4.25% a month. Big International has always claimed to be based offshore,
though it has never revealed its location. It communicates largely via the Internet.
However, it ceased operations for several weeks as a result of the DTI's court action,
leading some of its own members to speculate that there was no offshore headquarters and
that the DTI had correctly identified Big's principals, led by Grant. A few days ago, Big
reappeared on the Net, inviting fresh investments from an address in Gouda, the
Netherlands dairy town.
Mr Big may have dropped out of sight in the UK, but Mr Big Cheese seems to have
surfaced in Gouda.
