Michael Jackson Death Investigation

Until now I didn't pay attention to the case that investigates MJ's death, neither to the circumstances to this sad event. I just decided to make a series of blog posts about this, because now I feel i'm able to talk about this.

If anyone would join in the investigation, and create a reliable source for what happened around MJ's death, send me a message to lesliemjhu@gmail.com
As usually, I won't take anything that's unfounded, unproven or simply is about hate or biase.


Old Projects VI: Go For Your Dreams

To continue this serie I picked up a barely known MJ charity, called "Go For Your Dreams".

The Go For Your Dreams Foundation has been establised on October 10th, 2003. It was a part of MJ's then plans, that some of his close associates shared since then: restart his carrier and make him more accessible for the people.

His comeback of course had to include some charity, as it was a part of his likeness. However Heal The World was already defunct at that time, and Heal The Kids failed also due to his relationship with Shmuley Boteach. So he had to pick up a new name and goals.

The charity has been announced on MJ's 45th public birthday in Los Angeles. Back then he said that he will launch it before the end of the year, and he would mostly not to sponsor others by financially but to help them to reach their goals. His expressed wish was to provide and support youth-oriented educational, charitable and health programs and activities.

It's barely known that MJ released branded bags and caps for the announcement of his new charity. Those items had been distributed amongst the fans whom appeared on the party.

While the charity was in the process of obtaining tax-exempt charitbable status, the 2003 scandals broke off. This meant the end of the majority of MJ's plans from that time, including this foundation. It wouldn't have any good PR afterall, neither MJ had any time to take care of this.

The only public event we know of this charity after the allegations is that MJ's custom made Bently that has been signed by the starts participating in "What More Can I Give" video, has been sold off to support this foundation. The auction has been cancelled once and held in early 2004.

Interesting that a foundation under the same name has been registered within Delaware in late 2006.

The foundation has been renewed early this year and now is managed by the Michael Jackson Estate. This either means some taxation issues or that the MJ Estate has plans with the charity. We will see it soon...


Take Over

I'm happy to report about that despite the ongoing miseria around the Melissa Johnson case, the Michael Jackson Estate starteed to take over all the MJ trademarks. These includes:
Gone too soon
Heal the world

As well the original Heal The World foundation has been transferred temporary to a company. I guess soon it will be managed by the MJ Estate.


Seven Echols's and Richard Lapointe's case has been settled by the MJ Esteate recently.

Dieter Wiesner Again

I got some more information from my "German connection" about Dieter Wieser who just got back in the picture along with Joe Jackson.

I have seen the original documents for MJ Net Entertainment AG, Wiesner's and MJ's first company. According to this both Wiesner and his then partner retired from the company around October, 2003. Later in 2004 the company has been dissolved, because they didn't leave up to the bankrupcy rules. Previously it has been funded from 50.000 EUR by Jurgen Bachus and Reinhard Moller.
It's been finally closed down in January, 2010.

Interesting that the new company around him, UD Group has been suspended in Switzerland previously.

Wiesner came up with something new at www.thewiesnercollection.com, that will be a collection of memorablias Wiesner collected or tried to sell over the years related to MJ.


Michael Jackson Estate vs. Melissa Johnson

The MJ Estate filed it's answer on Brian Oxman asking for $4.000 reimbursment, becuase he appeared for a deposition back in February.

The MJ Estate amongst others claims:
- Oxman tried to avoid to be served with the subpoenas,
- He refused to go to the deposition,
- Failed to respond on the MJ Estate's form about reimbursing costs for him,
- He wanted to be part of this trial as he was submitting his witness statement to Johnson voluntary, later didn't want to testify on their side,
- No one locates on his office address, but a surplus store where he and his father are selling "anti-radiation" pills to the public following the earthquake in Japan,
- According to the process server "Oxman took the subpoena papers when he was served, clearly realising he had been caught and had little choise but to accept",
- After Oxman received the subpoenas his wife e-mailed the MJ Estate lawyers saying that Oxman won't be available on any of the dates mentioned,
- The MJ Estate lawyers just found out that Oxman and his wife (and partner in their law firm) has a long history of sending mails that no one receives finally, when they are in trouble,
- When the MJ Estate lawyers started to force him to appear for the deposition, he called them "incompetent", "rude" and offensive". When they were discussing the date of Oxman's deposition, if he will be available anytime he replied to the lawyer "well, aren't you a brave young lady?",
- Oxman wants to get money, because of the costs of "binding" the documents he produced. However the documents were not binded in any ways, aside from being rubberbanded,
- According to law Oxman has to be reimbirsed for around $100 that includes his travelling fees and so. This money has been sent to him 3 times over the past 2 months, last time he has been personally served with the check. And now he claims that he didn't get the money and wants $4.000,
- Oxman claims that he spent 12.3 hours on searching and collecting documents for the deposition and counts with his alleged $500 fee. At the end Oxman appeared on the deposition with only 5 documents, one of them was an empty envelope...
- Oxman has been suspended twice, first time in 1998 for similar incidents. And in 2009 when the California State Bar suspended his licence for 2 years.

Now how great attorney the Jackson family had for 25 years?


Michael Jackson Estate vs. Melissa Johnson

On May 14th, 2011 the MJ Estate has been notified about that the defendants do not intend to follow their obligations under the settlement agreement. They are claiming that Melissa Johnson did not have the authority to sign the settlement agreement in the name of board of directors.

Since the parties agreed in settling the case, defendants didn't follow andy of the settlement terms. Johnson's lawyer insisted that they have concerns regarding the terms of the settlement. This lawyer insterestingly sent a copy of this communication to Howard Mann, that tells a lot.

The fact that the board of directors rejected the settlement means that both Katherine and Joseph Jackson was present and voluntary agreed to this, and plays on fighting again the MJ Estate.


The Dieter Wiesner Connection?

I received a message with some interesting information regarding Michael Jackson's German merchandises, and Dieter Wiesner. Let's see these details:

According to this person there is a tight connection between UD Group International and Wiesner. The fact that UDG is selling the sub-woofer system made in Wiesner's era might be an evidence: http://www.umadubhe.com/index.php?p=shop&action=showproduct&id=190&cid=37&pname=mj-michael-jackson-original-soundsystem-peerless-mj-one-flat-panel-mit-aktiv-subwoofer-sehr-rar- . However it's not clear if the items has been stored by Wiesner's MJ Net Entertainment or TePax.

More to come soon...
