On Saturday the 2nd of August 2003 I sent the email below to Tony Luckwill. The reasons are made clear within the email itself.
Sadly he only made a thinly veiled attempt at compliance, and only then with his own "qualifications" and inappropriate editing.
In effect, I gave him a 'fire escape' before events progress to the point whereby he becomes too deeply involved in a course of actions which would have serious, long term custodial implications. It is my belief that the full scope of my proposals detailled within the following email were fair, achievable and made in good faith, without prejudice.
You recently sent a libellous email claiming that I had
published indecent images of children.
I am writing to give you the opportunity to make a
public retraction of this and other statements as
detailed below. If you comply with these requirements,
in full, without qualification, I shall undertake not
to progress any further legal action against you in
relation to this libel.
You will post an “X-No-Archive: no” public message
to the following newsgroups:
The subject for the messages should be:
“Public apology to Martyn Bailey”
The text of the message should be:
”I, Anthony Peter Luckwill, known as Tony Luckwill,
do hereby and herein publicly retract all statements
previously made by myself in relation to Martyn Bailey,
and all statements referring to two of his companies;
Solis (Shefield Internet) and the Redsys Network
(UK and in the Netherlads).
I admit and accept that statements made by myself were
incorrect, fabricated, inaccurate, misleading, malicious
I hereby offer my full unqualified public apology to
Martyn Bailey for my words and actions which I now
accept and understand have caused a great deal of
harm and distress.
I further undertake to seek professional help and
support in relation to my recent and previous offences
with the long term aim of understanding that some of my
actions, beliefs and interests are not acceptable in
My long term aim is to enjoy Land Rover vehicles, and
any associated events and clubs with moral parity to my
peers, and to make a positive contribution toward the
history and heritage of the Marque.
In short, I hereby apologise for any and all consequential
harm that I may have caused as a result of my actions.
I hereby pledge to take positive steps to change my life
in a way which is beneficial to society.”
You will write via conventional post formally apologise
for the harm and distress you have caused (you have my
My expectation of you is that at no point in the future
shall you continue or resurrect your defamatory actions
against myself, my family or any of my business concerns.
I have no objection to you continuing to post topical and
non-confrontational postings, however, with the exception
of the above communications, I do not want to have any
contact with you whatsoever.
Should you comply with the above requirements I shall take no
further action against you with regard to the libellous email
sent on the 31st July 2003 to Total Registrations Limited.
Provided you maintain a record of good behaviour in line with
the requirements above I will, in due course, cease to publicise
the website at luckwill.com - and will in the fullness of time
remove the site altogether. If you have demonstrated, in good
faith, that you have sought professionally qualified help with
your ‘issues’, then I will give you the domain, free of any
charge, on the third anniversary of your public posting of
the apology required above.
My personal feelings toward you are currently clouded by the
harm you have attempted to cause, however, this proposal is
intended to help you to regain control of your life in a
harmless and productive manner. I do not, for what it’s
worth, wish you any personal physical harm, or believe
that you currently pose an immediate or direct sexual danger
to children, however I do believe that if left unchecked,
you could progress to become so. I therefore do most certainly
require that you seek professionally qualified and accredited
help. I had hitherto believed that paedophiles could not be
‘cured’ or ‘rehabilitated’, however there is some evidence to
suggest that this may not always necessarily be the case.
A number of successes have recently been claimed with the aid
of an appropriate therapeutic intervention.
If you accept this proposal you do not need to reply, simply
comply as required. Should you not find this proposal;
acceptable and fail to comply in accordance with my requests
as detailed herein, I shall progress and escalate action
I have signed this email with my personal and unique
‘PGP signature’ for my safety and your reassurance - as you
may use it as evidence should I fail to provide the above
actions in fulfilment of this proposal.
I would strongly suggest that you do not make any decisions,
comments, or take any actions in relation to this email for
at least two days. This will give you a good chance to think
about and by all means authoritatively and independently assure
yourself that the contents and scope of this proposal be fair
and achievable, made with due care and in good faith.
