Stolen Art Watch, Leonardo Da Vinci Madonna, Perjury King Mark Dalrymple, Part 1
Mark Dalrymple Perjury Part 1
The case that will show Mark Dalrymple has recovered stolen art without keeping Police informed is from 2007, same year as Da Vinci Madonna recovery, before the Da Vinci Madonna recovery.
This case involved three paintings stolen from an art dealer in West London, Acton in 2005.
The three paintings were insured by AXA for over £1 million and Mark Dalrymple was assigned the Art Loss Adjuster through his company Tyler and Co to investigate and recover these three paintings.
Mark Dalrymple assigned Dick Ellis, Ex-Scotland Yard’s Art and Antiques Squad founder, who retired in 2000 and now works as a private art loss investigator.
Dick Ellis was contacted by two men, Robert Fairbrother and Nigel Fealden, who said they could organise the recovery of the said three paintings stolen from an Art Dealer in West London, Acton, in 2005.
Dick Ellis duly contacted Mark Dalrymple with the good news. However, neither Mark Dalrymple or Dick Ellis informed the London Metropolitan Police in Acton to tell them and it was only once the stolen three paintings were recovered were Police told.
Dick Ellis arranged for the stolen three paintings to be delivered to him and he took possession of the three stolen paintings.
It was only then, once Dick Ellis had possession of the three stolen paintings, and had kept his employer, Mark Dalrymple informed throughout, especially at the crucial point of Dick Ellis taking possession of the three stolen paintings, was it decided London Acton Police should be informed.
So, Dick Ellis, three stolen paintings in his possession, telephoned Acton police and said “Those three paintings stolen back in 2005, well, I have recovered them so you better come and collect them”
Acton Police duly attended and collected the three stolen paintings from Dick Ellis and said to Dick Ellis “Should’t we arrest you Dick ?” to which the Wiley old Fox of Scotland Yard Dick Ellis just gave a cold stare, and was met with a sheepish reply “O’h, perhaps no arrest then”
Subsequent to the recovery Acton Police interviewed both Robert Fairbrother and Nigel Fealden under caution, bailed them and a file was sent to the Crown Prosecution Services.
The Crown Prosecution services decided there was not enough evidence to issue charges, not least because Dick Ellis had been the one handing over the stolen paintings to Acton Police.
No further Police action was taken.
However, then Fairbrother and Fealden applied for the advertised reward of £50,000 and were met with an arrogant denial from Mark Dalrymple because Acton Police, incensed by their exclusion from the stolen art recovery, refused to issue a “Comfort letter” saying that Acton Police had no objections to AXA, via Mark Dalrymple paying the advertised reward of £50,000 to Robert Fairbrother and Nigel Fealden.
To their credit Fairbrother and Fealden issued High Court Lawsuit proceedings and they were due to be heard last summer 2009.
However, just before the case was due to be heard Mark Dalrymple made certain advances towards Police via third parties explaining if this case went to court it could undermine the evidence Mark Dalrymple was going to give in the Da Vinci Madonna case.
Therefore, Acton Police were pressured to issue the Comfort letter and a secret sealed deal was made whereby the £50,000 was paid out. Still, once the lawyers had got their fee’s Fairbrother and Fealden got very little at all.
The significance is Mark Dalrymple knew all along and conspired with Dick Ellis to withhold information from Acton police and the hand back of the stolen three paintings, worth over £1 million, was made without any arrests.
This flies in the face of the evidence, under oath, Mark Dalrymple gave recently in the High Court Edinburgh, Scotland.
“I never recover stolen art without working closely with Police every step of the way”
