Re: From the Facebook page...
"Corporate law doesn't distinguish between one MD and the next. It's up to the company as an entity to sort it out."
Hence why I made clear that "it would still be the company's ultimate responsibility either way" and- by implication- this wasn't the level on which I was disputing it.
The problem with this case is that there *is* a dispute between the former and current management, which is as much the selling point of the story. And that if one wishes to assign blame- either explicitly or implicitly- at a personal level, there's not enough clear evidence to say for sure whose fault this particular issue is.
At this stage, I still wouldn't touch anything by the company with a bargepole, though
