A report published on behalf of the Worthington Group has claimed that Dave King was involved with the Chalotte Fakes twitter account.
Early in 2013 the account began to release highly sensitive documents relating to matters at Ibrox which suggested that Craig Whyte had recorded every significant conversation before and after paying Dave Murray £1 in May 2011.
Charlotte Fakes allowed fans to put together pieces of the jigsaw that involved both clubs, the football authorities and the assets, namely Ibrox Stadium and Murray Park.
Both of those assets are the subject of a claim from the Worthington Group. In June 2012 they were sold by Duff and Phelps to Charles Green for £5.5m, a few months later Green was valuing them at £80m. Four years after liquidation no creditor has received a penny from the old club.
According to the Worthington Group report: “In 2013 various parties connected to Worthington and Rangers were victims of a computer hacking operation and tens of thousands of emails and other documents were stolen.
“The hacker was identified as Charlotte Fakes. AE (Aidan Earley) referred the matter to the police and a suspect was arrested. That suspect has now been identified as William Stevenson. Court proceedings disclosed that David King the Chairman of Rangers has paid £25,000 for the emails.
“The emails were subsequently illegally provided to and used by Tom Winnifrith and published by him on his ShareProphets website.”
In a trial relating to his own tax issues Mr King was described by a South African judge as a glib and shamelss liar.
