  • The compulsive liar and convicted criminal has succeeded fooling a whole lot of people with his act

  • He elected to go to hospital and it was not an emergency procedure.
    How many other prisoners can do that?
    Just treat him in prison like how all other prisoners get treated.
    This is clearly an abuse of the process, with his daughter (whose multi-million dollar wedding was funded with stolen money), bleating like a demented sheep about her father's supposed condition.
    We can all see that it is just playacting.
