    Of course, that whole episode might have been started by someone having trouble with autocorrect / autocomplete...

    Obviously there is big money involved, so the comment about Mr Cookson begs the question "if you were running a business and were offered shedloads of cash to operate in a certain country for a while, would it be wise to let them know that it was only a cash exercise to fund development elsewhere?"
    Wouldn't be in business very long, transparency is good but not too much so and not always wise.

    It was also depend if he views himself as "running a business" or being the president of a sports governing body; but I am not sure why there cannot be transparency when "business" is involved.

    I wonder what for. Couldn't be much worse than the tale of dinner with the parents. Isn't blackmail usually a crime prosecuted by the state, too?

    The reports I've read aren't really clear, but I guess you are right that blackmail would be a criminal case.

    I'm not entirely sure what the case is based on, but I think it might be an application to prevent publication of future editions of the book.

    Nevertheless, Hanegraaf says that Dekker offered not to write anything bad about him in the book if he was prepared to write off money that Dekker owed him. As well as the dinner with the parents, Hanegraaf objects to a supposed meeting with Fuentes where Dekker says that Hanegraaf did all the translation from Spanish. Hanegraaf claims not to be able to speak any Spanish.
