Wine Investment Association
In the course of an interview with Peter Shakeshaft of the Wine Investment Association, Winifred said that, despite claims in his press releases and website, he has no partnership with the National Fraud Investigation Bureau. That’s what the Bureau’s Director - Detective Superintendent Dave Clark - told us.
Mr Shakeshaft countered that the Bureau had itself put out a press release still on its website confirming the partnership. He was right, it was there. It isn’t any longer. The National Fraud Investigation Bureau told us Superintendent Dave Clark’s statement– that there is no partnership - is accurate. The press release has been removed from the Bureau’s website.
