I think you should read the 2011 posts on ADVFN. One at a time. I've done so, though of course a lot have been deleted and you wouldn't therefore readily see all of what was said. Note that Leftky insisted that what he published was properly sourced, and he quite recently intimated that he had subsequently been threatened by someone, and stopped writing about Gulf because "he has a young family".
Robb1e was the one who suggested it might be one of the departed directors who was the leak, and that AS and JF know who it was. That was what I was addressing...and I don't think it runs.
So I agree with you, it's almost certainly someone else who is presumably still there. If it has already been dealt with, the shareholders would have been misled at the AGM, because AS and JF claimed they didn't know. And IMO it's very serious because who knows what else they might potentially be revealing?
The # of people who have access to RNSs prior to publication, and who have a MOTIVE for leaking them, must surely be very small?
