Craig Murray's web site: deleted by Fasthosts

censored | 20.09.2007 19:54 | Repression | Technology | Terror War

Craig Murray, the outspoken former British Ambassador in Uzbekistan has had his web site taken down by it's host, Fasthosts. This comes after an article by him attracted legal threats, "Alisher Usmanov, potential Arsenal chairman, is a Vicious Thug, Criminal, Racketeer, Heroin Trafficker and Accused Rapist":

At this stage it's not clear if he will be able to get a copy the data from Fasthosts in order to recreate it elsewhere.

In the meantime it can still be accessed via the Google cache:

And there are old copies of pages on the Internet Archive:*/

Some of the article and talks by Craig Murray on this site:

Craig Murray site closed by Fasthosts due to legal threats

20.09.2007 22:42

As many of our readers will know, this site [ LFCM: Casualty Monitor ] was first launched in support of Craig Murray and his election campaign in 2005.

We have just heard that the company hosting Craig Murray's own web site have decided to close it after receiving threats from lawyers acting for Alisher Usmanov.

Fasthosts appear to have caved in under the pressure that has been applied to them following the posting of a number of articles on Usmanov. Craig has consistently maintained his position regarding the truth and validity of his comments regarding the Uzbek-born oligarch.

As detailed by Chicken Yoghurt, "the family of websites that Tim and Clive (whose site is also down) look after are also currently AWOL. So if you’re missing the online presences of Craig Murray, Bob Piper or Boris Johnson, now you know why they’ve gone."

Yet More Schillings Bollocks

On my article about Alisher Usmanov which so incensed his lawyers Schillings, let me ask this question. Has anybody seen an argument posted or published from any credible source to argue that what I say about Usmanov is untrue?

I ask the question because one of the edits to this log my webhost made at Schillings' behest was to say that my claim was "regarded as false by many people". I have altered that edit, because there is no justification for such a claim. I have yet to see evidence of anybody, not one solitary person, arguing that I am wrong about Usmanov, other than his lawyers. Who are these "Many people", and why are they peculiarly silent?

I am very sympathetic to my webhost having to change things for Schillings, but not to the extent of altering things to become defamatory of me!!!

Craig's offensive article from 2005

21.09.2007 14:37

Paradoxically the post which has caused the problems is one Craig made in 2005 which was (conveniently and serendipitously or maybe even with the help of Gypsy Petulengro, who helps out a lot round this office)copied at ;

So those anxious to see what those who would want us not to see what it was they don't want us to see may see it, and maybe even copy it and distribute it around and about and up and down.

It is also entirely possible that it has already been copied elsewhere.

This is a case where singing from the same page of the same hymnal is essential.
