Westwood has copied the letter to the United Nations, European Union court and the Prime Minister of Britain Theresa May.
We publish below the full letter.
Mr President of The New Zimbabwe
The VOICE of the people is the voice of God Allow me to take this opportunity to congratulate you on your VICTORY.
On behalf of my wife and two boys I humbly appeal to you Mr President, the Zimbabwe Government and ZANU-PF for justice through compensation from Hon T.P MLISWA.
Hon Mliswa used the previous President Mr Robert. G. Mugabe's name in vain for personal Gain/Greed to illegally seize my companies Noshio Motors and Benbar! He claimed Mr Mugabe sanctioned this illegal seizure in line with the indiginization law.
On 18 December 2009. He wrongfully and illegally seized my companies Noshio Motors (Pvt) Ltd incorporating Benbar/Tromps using a fake Banda Trust Mafia style dirty politics and his uncle Didymus Mutasa. He stated he is Untouchable and above the law as he has powerful connections. He is obstructing the judiciary from doing their work in a professional manner.
Mr President you condemn corrupt and illegal activities and recently gave a white farmer back the land. The country is wooing back FDI yet my companies were illegally seized by Hon Mliswa. My ONLY Crime being white British FDI working with the amazing people of Zimbabwe. I was forced to flee Zimbabwe, with nothing but a suitcase due to death threats on my life. In the process I illegally LOST my entire investment, over One Million Pounds!
I love the amazing people of Zimbabwe, their kindness, warm smile, passion and love for God, willingness to work hard in rebuilding their Nation.
What happened to me Mr President, was wrong, immoral, illegal, fraudulent, un-constitutional, against the law, a gross violation of my Human and property rights. Hon T.P MLISWA was called in, for his political muscle and powerful connections to prevent a forensic audit at my companies Noshio Motors and Benbar.
Hon Mliswa claims a Banda Trust was drafted by his lawyer at the time G.N. MLOTCHWA! However as of February 2010 no such Banda Trust ever existed! My lawyer Victor Zvogbo did a search at the Deeds Office to verify this.
Hon T.P. Mliswa, SEVERELY VIOLATED MY HUMAN AND PROPERTY RIGHTS. He threatened to rape my Belgian wife, kidnap my two Belgian boys and KILL me!!
Didymus Mutasa lied to the previous President. He was Presidential affairs Minister at the time. He made sure his Nephew, son and others were acquitted bribing magistrates Never Katiyo and Morgan Nemadire as well as abusing his office. Johannes Tomanna (who was Mliswa's lawyer in 2000 during the Land Invasions) Prematurely closed my case without allowing FOUR other state witnesses to testify.
You are a lawyer Mr President. The FACTS AND EVIDENCE are there. Please may I humbly ask you to summon Florence Ziyambi, Chris Mutangadura, Mr Dube, Mishrod Guvamende the LAW Society of Zimbabwe and Patrick Chinamasa who was Justice Minister at the time. I wrote to them all.
A precedence must be made to show the World that Zimbabwe is definitely open for business and this will NEVER happen again to any other FDI creating employment for the amazing people of Zimbabwe.
I humbly ask and pray for your intervention in order for my family and I to rightfully receive the compensation due to us from Hon T.P MLISWA who was Provincial Chairman of Mashonaland West in the ruling Zanu-PF party at the time he illegally seized my companies Noshio Motors and Benbar.
Benbar was Zimbabwe Number One Choice in manufacturing and Noshìo Motors was the leading supplier of motor vehicles and accessories to the entire Nation. Hon Mliswa destroyed it over night. Some workers had been there from the time of its inception in the 90s. New potential investors want to believe the same thing will not happen to them.
Hon T.P MLISWA must be held accountable for his own ACTIONS and DECISIONS in this heinous crime. HOW can he be PPC Chairman when he himself bribed Magistrates NEVER KATIYO and MORGAN NEMADIRE to get ACQUITTED? He threatened, harassed, intimidated, looted, extorted, maliciously damaged my personal property and furniture, criminally DEFAMED me, obstructed justice, coercion, manipulation of the judiciary, abuse of office, interfering with state witnesses, stole vast amounts of cash both in the safe and from customers, he made false police reports, forged documents, changed the CR14 WITHOUT my knowledge and/or approval, obtained a new share certificate, he is in violation of the Companies Act, using a FAKE BANDA TRUST and Banking Act, illegally opening a bank account and much more
This is about an investment which I made in good faith in Zimbabwe, Mr President. I had been working from the time I was 16 years old. I built up these companies created employment only to lose the entire lot to Hon T.P MLISWAs personal greed!
No Sacred Cows Mr President.
It is my HOPE and PRAYER my family and I receive justice through compensation from HON T.P MLISWA and perhaps help in the re-building process.
TOGETHER we accomplish more.
We thank you Mr President
Paul and Brenda-Lee Westwood
