DAVID ICKE Pays $166,000 To SETTLE LIBEL ACTION
British conspiracy writer David Icke and co-defendants have paid Canadian human rights lawyer Richard Warman $210,000 CDN (117,000 GBP) in damages and legal costs to settle a libel action against them.
In 1999-2000, Warman had worked with various Jewish and anti-racism groups to notify public venues in Canada of discriminatory elements within Icke’s conspiracy theories.
In retaliation, Icke included false allegations in his 2001 book Children of the Matrix alleging that Warman was trying to suppress Icke’s purported exposure of Satanic child abuse and murder.
David Icke made an out-of-court settlement on January 8th paying $90,000 CDN (50,000 GBP)on the eve of a long-delayed trial that was scheduled to begin in Toronto on February 2nd, 2015. The Court order formally discontinuing the claim was issued on 4 March 2015 thus paving the way for this announcement. Information obtained from litigation by Icke against his former US business partner demonstrated that at least 55,000 copies of Children of the Matrix had been sold worldwide.
