Gremach Infrastructure's Google India Attack, Mozambique Coal Baron's Squalor (tags)

The original purpose of this article post was to point out that India's Gremach Infrastructure Equipments & Projects Ltd that is threatening to sue Google because of an anonymous poster 'using the name 'Toxic Writer' criticized the company on blogger.com, a site that allows individuals to create blogs....' is no more than an India stock market version of U.S. incorporated penny stock pump and dump scams and has lost 80% or so of investor money in the last few months.If anything their own investors it should be sueing them. However when I say 'investors' -I do not mean such international stock sharks and hedge fund entities as Merrill Lynch or Templeton Funds or Eureopean Swiss Finance Corporation or Caytman Island based LB India Holdings Cayman II Ltd., offshores.These international securities parasites are in my opinion part of the problem and have aided and abetted Gremach and its insiders and promoters,such as or particularly Mr. Ratanlal Tamakuwala and Mr Rishi Raj Agarwal,to take retail or small investors for a ride.
